Waiting on Wednesday: Pandemonium (Delirium #2) by Lauren Oliver

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I'm rather stoked that the release date of the much-anticipated sequel to Lauren Oliver's Delirium, Pandemonium has been moved up to February 28th! If you haven't read this one yet, I'm not sure what you were doing in late 2010, early 2011. Seriously. It was fantastic! Don't believe me? Check out my non-spoilery review.

I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare,
pushing aside thoughts of Alex,
pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my
old school,
like Raven taught me to do.
The old life is dead.
But the old Lena is dead too.
I buried her.
I left her beyond a fence,
behind a wall of smoke and flame.

Lauren Oliver delivers an electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed New
York Times
bestseller, Delirium. This riveting, brilliant novel crackles
with the fire of fierce defiance, forbidden romance, and the sparks of a
revolution about to ignite.

From Goodreads

While I don't think this gives enough detail about what might take place in the next installment, I kind of think that's a good thing. After the roller coaster ride that was the first book, this one is sure to follow in the same footsteps. Giving too much in the summary might detract from its appeal. I'm too excited & over-analyzing, but I hope you are too. What are you waiting on this week?

The "Delirium" was amazing. I felt the story line was very sneaky. It kind of krept along, subtley intriging and then BOOM it tugs at you heat strings and leaves you haunted for days. Truely a great book. I tear up everytime I talk about it . I am absolutely DYING from anticipation for " Pandemonium "
