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

Lauren Oliver


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


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

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
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:
Barnes & Noble, IndieBound, Book Depository.

are you waiting on?

  1. 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!

  2. 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…
