Waiting on Wednesday: Requiem (Delirium #3) 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.

Another series I am sad to see come to an end is the Delirium series by Lauren Oliver. A smash hit from the beginning, this series has been a seriously unique romp in the dystopian/future/romance realm. Requiem, coming out March 25, is gearing up to a blood-pumping conclusion to an astounding series. Spoilers abound below, so be sure you've either read the books or have seen my reviews of Delirium & Pandemonium.

Requiem cover
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 fiancĂ©e 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.

I can't even begin to explain my elation at this book! Lena has been one of those awesome heroines that has conquered so much to find herself where is presently is, but I will be happy to see where she finally winds up. This has been such a different kind of series that I am truly excited to see what Lauren Oliver has in store for us next.

What are you waiting on this week?

I didn't really like the first book so I haven't picked up the second but as I keep seeing the series around, I'm thinking about checking it out again.

I usually willing to give a series a 2nd chance if I feel like it just wasn't the right thing for me to read at that time. If you absolutely detested it, that's different. If you wait until this final one comes out, if you decide you do like it, then you can read them all! :D
