Both of these came out of a lunch table discussion here at work. It went from the Student Loan Forgiveness Act, to large combined incomes that really mean nothing in the face of student loan debt, to not being able to stay home and raise children because a family can no longer survive on a sole income, to the adversities women still face in this society. Hence the first novel - Delirium: How the Sexual Counterrevolution is Polarizing America, about some crazy ass ladies who voted against women's rights and are actually the reason maternity leave was decreased from 1 year to a mere 3 months.
In searching for Nancy Cohen's Delirium, I found Lauren Oliver's. Completely different, yet somehow not. A teen dystopian romance that is set in a world where a cure for love has been found and all citizens must receive this cure when they turn 18. A common theme - denying people their natural rights - and a common name contribute to today's books I need to read sooner rather than later.
