WoW-Delirium

Hello everybody! WoW stands for Waiting on Wednesday, and is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. Head over there to sign up yourself! Basically, you post about a book that you are anticipating the release of. It is a weekly meme that occurs every wednesday. I will include a link to Goodreads so you can learn more about the book that I picked. Happy Reading!


Delirium
By Lauren Oliver
Release Date: February 1st 2011
Summary:
Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love -the deliria- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy.

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.




Bye for now, and I hope that maybe somebody will add this to their TBR pile. I cannot wait to read this!

The Storm Before Atlanta
By Karen Schwabach
Publication date: December 28, 2010

At a time when most people have grown weary of the war between the states, two young children are desperate to find their way to the battlefields. Jeremy DeGroot wants nothing more than to join a troop as a drummer boy. For Dulcie, a runaway slave, freedom means she must head directly toward the fighting in the hopes that she'll become "contraband," that is, property of the Union troops. Both Jeremy and Dulcie find a place with the 107th New York Volunteer Regiment and even start to forge a friendship. But all that is threatened when they keep crossing paths with the mysterious Charlie, a young Confederate soldier, who may look like the enemy but feels more like a friend.
