Delirium  - Lauren Oliver

The second half of this book was much better than the first. I was incredibly bored with Lena and the whole situation in the beginning, but I was hooked by the time the climax rolled around. Even if I'm not a fan of Oliver's style here, or present tense, or Lena herself, Oliver really does know how to tell a story and engage a reader when push comes to shove. This is one of the few books where I could push aside my dislike of the writing in favor of still enjoying the story itself.
