Waiting on Wednesday #6- Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver & Insurgent by Veronica Roth


"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Be sure to post a link to your Waiting on Wednesday in the comments!



This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Release Date: February 28, 2012
Publisher: HarperCollins

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. 

(Summary from Goodreads)


Release Date: May 1, 2012
Publisher: HarperTeen

One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love. 

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so. (Summary from Goodreads.)

My thoughts: I honestly don't know that either of these need any thoughts or comments except to say that I WILL be finding money somehow to buy these the moment they are out in hardcover! These are both book 2's in ongoing trilogies and if you haven't read the 1st ones, Delirium and Divergent, WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE YOU WAITING FOR!? :) 
Get to it! 

What are you waiting for this week?
