Waiting On Wednesday


*Edited to add: If you have not yet read Delirium, skip over the synopsis! It contains major spoilers. (Thanks Jenn!)*

This week, I'm waiting for...
By: Lauren Oliver
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.

-Summary from Goodreads.   

Release date: March 6th, 2012

As you guys know, I'm a big, big fan of Lauren Oliver. She has such beautiful writing! Delirium was such an unique idea (you can see my review of it here) and executed so well, my expectations for Pandemonium are unrealistically high off the charts. But, knowing Lauren, she's going to meet those standards and beyond.
What are you waiting for this week?


  1. Awesome pick! I didn't read the description because I was afraid it might give away Delirium for me (Gah! I know I have to read it!), but I'm really excited about this trilogy.

  2. Oh, thanks for pointing that out! I totally forget about the whole "spoiling" issue, and you're definitely right.

    Yay!!! Thanks! :D

  3. I'm pretty careful when I see a WoW for a later book in a series. Usually I take a quick jaunt over to Goodreads to check out the first book in the series then return to then spend some time admiring the cover of the sequal being showcased. With a little common sense buzz about sequals are a great way to find older series.
    I also really appreciated your helpful words about the authors style and creativity. Exactly the kind of thing I look for when browsing WoWs. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I've never read Delirium but I have it at home. I never got around to it. I've seen this one on a few WoWs though so I should get to reading it soon.

  5. @eclectophilia Thanks! That's a great thing to do. It's so true that many great series end up buried by new releases and we don't hear about them until their sequel(s)' buzz!

    @Giselle You should definitely try it out. There are a lot of loose strands left at the end, though, so if I were you I would wait until the sequel's out, just in case. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy!
