For the Love of Swoon Hop


Who needs a real Valentine when there are so many charming fictional swoonalicious dudes heroes to sweep you off your feet?
We want the book that brings all the swoons- the one that makes your heart flutter or race and your stomach fill with butterflies- whether that be because of a hero/heroine, a relationship, and/or the book in its entirety.
Thank you to The Book Hookup and I Am A Reader, Not A Writer for hosting this fabulous fun hop!

Because so many books fall into this category due to my overly romantic, swoony self, I’m going to give away your choice of two prizes.  But first, several of my favorite swoons:
 
Divergent (Divergent, #1) Hopeless (Hopeless, #1) Easy Matched (Matched, #1) The Iron King (The Iron Fey, #1) Enclave (Razorland, #1) Soul Screamers Vol. 1: My Soul to Lose • My Soul to Take • My Soul to Save

While I’m a fanatic for Four from Divergent, head-over-heels for Holder in Hopeless, love-struck for Lucas from Easy, keen on Ky in Matched, passionate about Puck from The Iron Fey series, fascinated by Fade in Enclave, and tempted by Tod in Soul Screamers … there is one boy in a series that steals the show, especially around Valentine’s Day.  So -- be still, my swoony heart -- since I’m awestruck for Alex, I’m choosing Delirium by Lauren Oliver.  I ugly sobbed through Delirium, nearly had a heart attack during Pandemonium, and am counting down the days until I have Requiem in my hands!
 
Delirium (Delirium, #1) Pandemonium (Delirium, #2) Requiem (Delirium, #3)

Delirium is not only one of my favorite books and all about the L-O-V-E, but (in my opinion) it’s one of the most romantic books that I've had the pleasure of reading.  It's the story of a dystopian world where love -- aka Amor Deliria Nervosa -- has been ruled as a disease.  The government requires that all teenagers be cured of the deliria to keep society safe. But ninety-five days before her treatment, Lena Haloway falls for a boy and is forced to make an extraordinary decision.


“I'd rather be infected with love for the tiniest sliver of a second than live a hundred years smothered by a lie."

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

"Love. It kills you both when you have it, and when you don’t.”

On my stop, I am offering the entire series in hardcover.  The final book Requiem is a pre-order and will ship  from Amazon on its release day of March 5.  As a special bonus, this hardcover first edition includes an exclusive short story of Alex.

IF you already have the Delirium series, you can choose an Amazon or B&N gift card for $30.00.

  2. Nice giveaway there, Ms. Cheles Bells. I've got the first Delirium on my iPad Kindle App. Must start immediately as I have a vested interest in racheting up the stakes for your affections that exist within your current swoony heart affections for the fictional Alex. I'm intent on replacing your love for him with Lincoln Presley very shortly, just need to know what I'm up against to ensure Linc wins out. lol. Nice post! I'll tweet it out! xo KO
