Waiting on Wednesday 7-25-12


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine  to share what book you are highly anticipating the release of.

This week I decided to do two again. The first is Requiem by Lauren Oliver. If you have read Pandemonium then you know why I am totally pining for this one. If you haven't, it left us with a big cliffhanger ending!! Oh, and it's told from both Lena AND Hana's POV's!! Heck yeah!!

** WARNING! If you haven't read the first two books, the overview is a bit spoilery

Overview

Now an active member of the resistance, Lena has been transformed. The nascent rebellion that was under way in Pandemonium has ignited into an all-out revolution in Requiem, and Lena is at the center of the fight. Of Pandemonium, ALA Booklist noted that “like all successful second volumes, this expands the world and ups the stakes, setting us up for the big finale.”

After rescuing Julian from a death sentence, Lena and her friends fled to the Wilds. But the Wilds are no longer a safe haven—pockets of rebellion have opened throughout the country, and the government cannot deny the existence of Invalids. Regulators now infiltrate the borderlands to stamp out the rebels, and as Lena navigates the increasingly dangerous terrain, her best friend, Hana, lives a safe, loveless life in Portland as the fiancée of the young mayor. Requiem is told from both Lena’s and Hana’s points of view. The two girls live side by side in a world that divides them until, at last, their stories converge.


Next book I am dying waiting for is Prodigy by Marie Lu. I freaking loved Legend. It's was so fantastic and I absolutely need to know what is going to happen next for Day and June! The overview for this one isn't really spoilery if you haven't read the first one I don't think.

Jan. 4. 1932 Hours.

Ocean Standard Time

Thirty-Five Days After Metias’s Death


June and Day arrive in Vegas just as the unthinkable happens: the Elector Primo dies, and his son Anden takes his place. With the Republic edging closer to chaos, the two join a group of Patriot rebels eager to help Day rescue his brother and offer passage to the Colonies. They have only one request—June and Day must assassinate the new Elector.

It’s their chance to change the nation, to give voice to a people silenced for too long.

But as June realizes this Elector is nothing like his father, she’s haunted by the choice ahead. What if Anden is a new beginning? What if revolution must be more than loss and vengence, anger and blood—what if the Patriots are wrong?


I swear with all the books coming out the end of this year and especially the beginning of next year, I may go crazy with anticipation of them all. Leave me a link and I will check out your post.

  2. I'm lame. I haven't read Delirium or Pandemonium. Plus, I wash wild about Legend. I think I'm the only person in the world who didn't love it. Like I said, lame.
    Thanks for sharing, sweetie!

    1. Haha! You are totally not lame. That's why they make so many different books. Not everyone likes the same things. I listened to Legend on audio and it was so good. I don't know if it would have been the same for me reading it. I think I would have still really liked it, but I just really loved the readers for it on the audio. They really made the book come alive for me. Probably better if you wait for Requiem to come out first if you are going to read the series. The books have crazy cliffhangers!!

  4. I still haven't read the Delirium series yet, but I've heard great things about it. I think I might just wait for the last book to come out, so I don't have to kill myself because of cliffhangers!
    I'm dying to read Prodigy too. I'm so jealous of everyone who got an ARC of it at BEA/ALA ! :P
    Great picks, Amy!

    1. She sure does!! She is a master at pulling out your deepest emotions. Like the end of Pandemonium, I pretty much saw it coming, but the emotional affect it had on me was totally unexpected!

  8. Great picks! I was SO mad at Lauren Oliver for ending that way in PANDEMONIUM. I almost threw the book across the room. xP I can't wait for PRODIGY either! *sigh* All these books seem to be ending with cliffhangers nowadays. One day, it's going to kill me...

  17. I am totally going to go CRAZY in anticipation for both of these books!! I didn't know that Requiem was going to be told from part of Hana's POV, which means I need to pick up that e-book. And Prodigy!!! I have no words for my excitement for that book.

    Fabulous picks Amy! =)
