Waiting on Wednesday (24)

Happy Waiting on Wednesday!

This week's is:
Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
March 6, 2012

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.

I loved Delirium and Before I Fall. But I'm a little scared for this one! I just hope it lives up to the beautifulness (Is that a word?!) of Delirium and has a happy ending. Even though this isn't the end...I need a happy ending! Anyway, that cover is gorgeous!

I've had Delirium on my shelf for a couple of months but I haven't gotten around to reading it. I've heard such amazing things about it so I really should just do it, but I'm scared after all the hype it won't live up to my expectations. I don't know why I think that though since I love Before I Fall.

I still need to read Delirium! But I'm really looking forward to reading them both. :) Great pick!

Haven't read Delirium, but my older sis is actually reading it! She seems to be getting into YA Dystopian lately. Kind of weird...

Love the cover of this one though!

Here's my WoW

Happy Reading and have a GREAT day!!

She BETTER not fall in love with someone else because I believe Alex is STILL alive!
