Waiting On Wednesday (10)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver (Delirium #2)
March 6, 2012 by HarperTeen


I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare,
pushing aside thoughts of Alex,
pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school,
push,
push,
push,
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.



I'm so, so excited for Pandemonium! I read Delirium October last year and fell in love with it (haha!) I'm dying for the sequel after that horrible cliffhanger!


Crossed by Ally Condie (Matched #2)
November 1, 2011 by Dutton


In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky - taken by the Society to his certain death - only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.

Cassia's quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander - who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia's heart - change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever.



Another dystopian sequel I am dying to get my hands on (this week needs to get by quickly and I hope, hope, hope I get some money to buy this book when it comes out!)  because of the darn cliffhanger ending! I liked Matched a lot when I read it, although I know some people didn't. I like that it reminded me of The Giver


A Million Suns by Beth Revis (Across The Universe #2)
January 10, 2012 by Razorbill


Godspeed was fueled by lies. Now it is ruled by chaos.
It's been three months since Amy was unplugged. The life she always knew is over. And everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed. But there may just be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He's finally free to enact his vision - no more Phydus, no more lies.
But when Elder discovers shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a puzzle that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier, unable to fight the romance that's growing between them and the chaos that threatens to tear them apart.
In book two of the Across the Universe trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis mesmerizes us again with a brilliantly crafted mystery filled with action, suspense, romance, and deep philosophical questions. And this time it all builds to one mind-bending conclusion: They have to get off this ship.
Did you notice the theme? ;) Across The Universe was fantastic and I loved it -- and I'm dying to know what happens next! 
So, what are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. I am so mad at myself for not reading any of the original novels these sequels. Oh, well I have time. I really want Delirium. I'm glad to know they are worth the sequel.
