Delirium  - Lauren Oliver

Mehhhh. Present tense again. I just should write a disclaimer post in my "about me" on my blog about my dislike of present tense. Seriously, though, Lena's narration is just so lifeless and stilted and awkward. I can't tell if that's her personality or the choppy present tense writing. Arggggg.


I'm interested in seeing what happens, but...I don't know. I'm not impressed yet.
