“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly meme that I try and participate in weekly, and sometimes I can do just that. Sometimes I can’t. The “Waiting on” Wednesday meme is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine (which, by the way, I just wanna say is something I never do–breaking the spine of books I read, that is) where bloggers get the chance to highlight a book they are “waiting on” that hasn’t come out yet. It’s funny I just made the connection, lol.
Alright, without further ado, this week I am “waiting on”…
Requiem by Lauren Oliver
Synopsis from Goodreads.com…
“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. Of Pandemonium, ALA Booklist noted that “like all successful second volumes, this expands the world and ups the stakes, setting us up for the big finale.”
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.”
Publication Date: March 5, 2013
P.S. Does anyone else think the cover model looks a lot like Keira Knightley?
That’s what I am “waiting on.” Your turn 🙂
