Waiting on Wednesday (4)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting for Requiem by Lauren Oliver (3/5/13):

Description on Good Reads:
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 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.

So I’m not too impressed with the cover. It kind of looks the same as the cover to the sequel: Pandemonium. But, it sounds totally awesome! I’m dying to find out what happens with the rebellion. And I’m super anxious to find out about Lena’s new love triangle…I’m sort of curious to see how things play out with Hana. She was not my favorite character, and was pretty much MIA in book 2 because most of book 2 took place in the borderlands and or in jail. I don’t doubt that the point of view shifts will be amazing. I know Oliver is good at writing characters that are hard to love. Oliver has only impressed me so far, and at this point I already know I will be buying any book with her name on it. I just have to wait for it!

(This post is set to go up Wednesday. I'm actually writing this on Monday because I will be out of town for a whole week (not back till the following Wednesday). I will not be taking my computer with me. I will be attending two different weddings. Two different best friends of mine are getting married in the same week! And I fly for the east coast tomorrow! I'm so excited for a little vacation, and will definitely have some reviews to post when I get back. Happy summer!)
