Waiting on Wednesday (84) (times two!)

The Murmurings by Carly Anne West
March 5th, 2013
Simon Pulse
"After her older sister dies from an apparent suicide and her body is found hanging upside down by one toe from a tree, sixteen-year-old Sophie starts to hear the same voices that drove her sister to a psychotic break."
Not much info so far, but it does sound pretty intriguing. 
Can't wait to see a full summary...

Requiem (Delirium #3) by Lauren Oliver
March 5th, 2013
HarperTeen
"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."
I am so excited for this book! The ending to Pandemonium was such torture and I can't wait to see what happens next. Plus, having Hana's POV along with Lena's should be interesting!

What are you waiting on?

  2. I think this will be a fantastic book (and hopefully the conclusion of the series.) I hadn't heard that Hana's POV would be included but it makes sense.

  3. OH MAN two great WoW picks. I didn't know Hana would be a narrator in Requiem. I liked the split narration of Pandemonium, and this sounds great, too!
