Waiting on Wednesday (8)
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that was created by Breaking the Spine to spotlight a blogger's eagerly anticipated new books.
For this Waiting on Wednesday, I picked Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver.
Release Date:March 6, 2012
Book Summary:"Lauren Oliver captivated readers with Delirium, the first book in a thrilling dystopian trilogy in which Lena Haloway dared to fall in love with Alex and escape the cure, the government-mandated procedure that renders a person immune to the disease of love. Lena and Alex staked their lives on leaving their oppressive society, but only Lena broke free.
Pandemonium continues Lena’s gripping story. After escaping from Portland, Maine, Lena makes it to the Wilds and becomes part of an Invalid community, where she transforms herself into a warrior for the resistance. A future without Alex is unimaginable, but Lena pushes forward and fights, both for him and for a world in which love is no longer considered a disease. Swept up in a volatile mix of revolutionaries and counterinsurgents, Lena struggles to survive—and wonders if she may be falling in love again.
Full of danger, forbidden romance, and exquisite writing, Lauren Oliver’s sequel to Delirium races forward at a breathtaking pace and is sure to appeal to fans who crave the high-stakes action of The Hunger Games and the bittersweet love story of Romeo & Juliet."
My Thoughts: Delirium was one of the best books that I read in 2010. I was lucky enough to be included in a Delirium ARC book tour via Good Golly Miss Holly, and ever since, I have been dying for a sequel. The ending was left too open, I still wanted to know if Lena was going to survive after her escape. If you enjoyed the dystopian romance element in The Hunger Games (and, boy, I know I did) I think you'll enjoy Delirium, which is mainly a romance. For me, Pandemonium is on my list of most anticipated books of 2012, even though I don't like the cover. Tweet
