Crazy Bibliophile and Book Pimp (Not So Anonymous)

I am a mother of two boys and avid reader; I practically live and breathe books. If I could sustain my life on just reading, I would live forever. I'm weird, and proud of it. I have traveled to many places: Mexico, St. Marteen, Prague, England, Cozumel, and Canada to name a few. Many moons ago I co-hosted "Welcome to Insanity" radio show on a micro radio station in TX- but our show was played via streaming internet in coffee houses in Amsterdam. I have a BA in theater. I used to be "the finder of lost things" but I think my last child robbed me of my gift. Now I just have a large collection of useless information... it goes with my growing mountain of "to be read" books

Delirium  - Lauren Oliver What I was expecting:


See.. it looks sweet, and it's dystopian which is quickly becoming a favorite genre of mine... But this is what I got instead:


I was bored. I finished because it was a buddy read, and it's like a challenge that I feel I have to try and try to finish a book no matter what... and it had some scavenger hunt words which didn't influence me in any way. Ut uh, no way, not a chance.

I can see this book appealing to a large audience of YA lovers, especially with Romeo and Juliet overtones, but I just didn't end up falling in love with this book. At all. I don't think it was bad, and the premise is different, so I gave it 3♥'s. Sorry to all those who loved it, but I just wasn't swept up in the romance. It didn't touch my heart... it wanted to, just didn't quite make it in.
