Feature & Follow Friday


FF 2012 Feature & Follow #101


Today's question is:
If you could "unread" a book, which one would it be? Is it because you want to start over and experience it again for the first time? Or because it was THAT bad?
That would have to be Delirium by Lauren Oliver. 
I started it convinced I wouldn't like it all that much because
a) I was so fed up with dystopians at that point and
b) I'd heard some other people didn't like it.

God, was I wrong! In the end, I loved it and it's one of my favorite books now. It was just when I tried to put the book down to find something to eat that I noticed I couldn't. Put it down, I mean. Not find something to eat.
I love,love, looove Oliver's writing style and the plot got so twisted and fast-paced in the end. Exactly what I love in books! 
So, yes, I'd like to unread it so that I can enjoy it from the very beginning :)

  1. Hopping through. Glad you loved Delirium. I thought it was only okay, unfortunately. I wish I'd liked it more.

    1. That's so sad! Then again I've heard different opinions on this book so it might not be everyone's cup of tea...
