Waiting on Wednesday (9)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases people are excited for.

Hello everyone! Alicia here. I'm finally getting back to reading and reviewing after being away for the past months due to personal reasons. I'm really happy to be back! Anyways, this week I'm waiting on:

Title: Requiem
Author: Lauren Oliver
Publisher: HarperCollins

Format: Hardcover, 432 pages.
Release Date: March 5, 2013

Summary:


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.

Why I want it:

AAAAAHHHHHH!!!! Why don’t I want Requiem?? Want, want want! I have been dying to read this for over a year, especially after that terrible ending in Pandemonium! I am sooo glad that there is less than a month to go until it comes out.

Also, if Lena doesn’t end up with Alex I will throw this book across the room. No lie. (Sorry Lauren Oliver!)

And I’m really excited to read Alex’s short story that is only in the first hardcover printings! So if you haven't preordered, you should do so now. Here are some links to preorder: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound, Book Depository.

What are you waiting on?

A book eagerly awaited by lots of bloggers it seems, I hope it lives up to all your expectations.

I wasn't a fan of Delirium and didn't read past that book, but I know how exciting it is to finish a series. Hope you enjoy this one and that it all ends just the way you'd like it to. Nice pick!

I still have not read this series. I avoided it due to the cliffhangers but now I think I will give it a go!

I still need to read that first one. Looks like I need to get on it and get that book! Then, I'll join you in wanting this one. :)

Oh ME TOO!! Lauren Oliver is the Queen of terrible cliffhanger endings that leave you reeling and wanting for sooo many long months. Glad the wait is almost over! I honestly couldn't say if I like Alex or Julian better though...

I've only read the first book and am thinking I might reread it once all the books are released in a row.

I read book 1. I always find it hard to finish a series, but I'd like to read all of these. I also hope the author writes some more contemporary. I loved Before I Fall.

So excited for this book. I LOVE Lauren Oliver! :)

Giselle said...
