Goodreads Monday! Delirium

Hello and welcome to Goodreads Monday! A weekly meme hosted by Forever Reading where we feature books that we added to our TBR thinking we’d read them, but we never did.

Ninety-five days, and then I'll be safe. I wonder whether the procedure will hurt. I want to get it over with. It's hard to be patient. It's hard not to be afraid while I'm still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn't touched me yet. Still, I worry. They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness. The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don't. –goodreads.com summery

  1. I'm hooked by the YA dystopia series of books out there, but I find they all range in quality of writing. This series is kind of in the middle for me, with The Testing series and The Selection series. I'm so grateful for all of these series, I gobble them up. I just read in an article about YA in the Writer's Digest Creativity Issue for July/Aug 2015 that publishers and readers are waning on YA dystopia. Do you think this is true?

    1. Yeah I agree that YA dystopia books can have a wide range in their quality of writing, but isn't that a problem with any popular genre? There's always going to be well written books and poorly written books. But I still read all the dystopian books I can find! They just really interest me! And yeah I think readers are getting a little tired of the dystopian genre as the influence of The Hunger Games is starting to wear off. At this point I feel like almost all the ideas have been done; a lot of the recent dystopian books just feel like rehashes of other ideas. And can you comment a link to the article you were talking about? I'm curious to read it!
