I have read tons of books in my years of existence and I am so thankful for every story I've read and characters I've met. Now with ThanksReading, we can be thankful and at the same time help promote literacy! Isn't that awesome?
Music major Maddie Taylor just finished her junior year of college and has a summer internship lined up with the LA Philharmonic, yet every night she practices guitar and secretly dreams of a louder life. But geeky girls like her don't get to be rock stars. That is, until tattooed singer Jared Cross catches her playing guitar and invites her to join his band on The Sound, a reality TV show competition.
Once on the show, Maddie discovers there’s more to Jared than his flirty smile and bad boy reputation – and that he’s just as big a geek as she is. With each performance their attraction becomes impossible to ignore, but when the show pressures them to stay single they’re forced to keep their relationship secret.
As the competition heats up, Jared will do whatever it takes for his band to win, and Maddie must decide if following her dream is worth losing her heart.
Hello, everyone! I know that I've been mostly MIA this year and I'm having a hard time balancing my schedule but I have to take time to react to this one. I know you're wondering what made me go out of my cave, so I'll cut the chase.

Last June 20, the Delirium pilot was released in Hulu. But unfortunately, it's only available for those who are from the US. Harsh, right? Fortunately for us, it was also uploaded on Youtube. For those of you who don't know (why, I don't want to know), this TV series was based on Lauren Oliver's Delirium trilogy. And just for everyone's knowledge, I loved the books (except the last one). Before it was rejected by FOX, I already had some issues about it (i.e., Julian being present and being paired with Hana). Looking back, I should have read that article before watching the show because most of my snarks were because of what was mentioned there, but what's done is done.
Below is my blow-by-blow reactions while watching Delirium Pilot. Spoilers ahead so read at your own risk. If you haven't read the book, you will be spoiled. If you haven't watched the pilot, you will be spoiled.. But I think it could also help if you're not sure if you want to watch it or not.
