Book Summary: "Sixteen-year-old Evie's job is bagging and tagging paranormals. Possessing the strange ability to see through their glamours, she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency. But when someone—or something—starts taking out the vamps, werewolves, and other odd beasties she's worked hard to help become productive members of society, she's got to figure it out before they all disappear and the world becomes utterly normal. Normal is so overrated."

The premise of Delirium intrigued me from the beginning. The idea of love and other emotions as part of a mental illness or human weakness had been well played out in classic dystopian literature and film, but I was interested in Oliver's take on the subject. It proved to be worth my time.
