"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event courtesy of Breaking the Spine
that showcases much anticipated upcoming releases.
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.The more I think about this one, the more I'm looking forward to it. That cover is absolutely gorgeous, and after reading the little snippet from the SE version of Delirium...well, suffice to say I'm rather looking forward to its release. I'm not too big on love triangles, though, so I hope that doesn't turn into a big thing. Regardless, the cover design is 1,000 steps in the right direction. I wonder if they'll find a cure not for the disease, but for society thinking that it is one.
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.
