Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to read!
My pick is Requiem by Lauren Oliver!
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.
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.
Oh. My. Word. I need this book, like, now! I mentioned on my Top Ten Tuesday post yesterday that Lauren Oliver has a knack for creating torturous cliffhangers, and that got me thinking about how much I love her Delirium series and how much I need Requiem right now.
If you haven't read Delirium and Pandemonium, the first two in this trilogy, then you are missing out on some seriously amazing books. Go read them!
Anyway, I'm freaking out with happiness over the fact that Requiem is told from both Lena anad Hana's POVs. This. Is. Perfect. I loved the short e-book that Lauren Oliver released from Hana's POV a while back, and I'm so excited that we get lots more of her in Requiem!
Also, I'm not sure what to think after the cliffhanger in Pandemonium. Who will Lena end up with?! It's driving me crazy! Which guy do you like best - Alex or Julian? While Julian is a great character, I personally prefer Alex! He's so much more swoon-worthy. :) Post your thoughts in the comments and/or leave a link to your WoW!
