Waiting on Wednesday (Times Two!)


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
Release: March 2012
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. 
Anything that's written by Lauren Oliver automatically captures my interest because I adore her books. I'm so very curious to see where Lena's story goes in this one...especially after how Delirium ended!

When the Sea is Rising Red by Cat Hellisen
Release: February 2012
A girl fakes her own suicide to escape from the strict confines of her aristocratic family and a likely arranged marriage, only to be confronted with the harsh realities of living in the slums with the working class and the ultimate discovery that the boy she’s fallen in love with is plotting a rebellion to destroy her family. 


What are you waiting on?

  5. I haven't read Delirium yet, but love the cover for Pandemonium, it goes with the second Delirium cover. I am loving the second book! The summary is interesting and the cover is something else ^^

  7. Delirium is on my to-be-read list, and so I'm sure I'll be eagerly anticipating Pandemonium as soon as I do. And I'd never heard of When The Sea is Rising Red, but now that you've made me aware of it, I definitely am looking forward to it!
    Great picks!! Now following you!

  8. I've been wanting to read Delerium for a while now. So many other books have just been taking its place.
    I must agree with everyone though, I'm not such a fan of the cover for the new one.
