Waiting on Wednesday - #8 (Pandemonium)

{++ }  This weekly event/feature is graciously hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine.  She's way too awesome, and put this event together in order to bring us bloggers together.  Some of us like me are relatively new; others have been here longer, but the gist of it is,  we all need an opportunity to reveal our can't-wait-to-read-'em, omg-gotta-have-'em-books, (and maybe make a few new friends along the way.)  Here is my pick this week!

Lauren Oliver
Expected publication: 03.06.12 - Harper Teen
(Synopsis provided by Goodreads.)

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.

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.

Full of danger, forbidden romance, and exquisite writing, Lauren Oliver’s sequel to Delirium races forward at a breathtaking pace and is sure to appeal to fans who crave the high-stakes action of The Hunger Games and the bittersweet love story of Romeo & Juliet

Why this book?

{ ++ } I loved Delirum.  Loved it.  I had a couple aspects I wish had been fleshed out more - little more backstory, little more world-building, and a lot more attention to the love interest - but I really enjoyed Delirium.  My favorite books are the ones that make you think, the ones that stick with you after you've closed the book and finished it - and Delirium did that.  I'm hoping Pandemonium takes it to the next level. ...Plus, the cover is pretty.  : )
