Waiting on Wednesday - Pandemonium


Hosted by Breaking the Spine



Title: Pandemonium
Author: Lauren Oliver
Publisher: HarperCollins (February 28, 2012), Pgs 384
Format: Hardcover
Genre: YA
Series: Delirium #2

Book Description:

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.

Lauren Oliver:

"At the end of 'Delirium,' I left Lena in such a difficult spot, I kind of felt guilty about that. And it was difficult for me to pull her out of there," she said of "Pandemonium."

"We get introduced to a whole new set of characters, which is exciting," Lauren added. "It basically picks up both immediately from where 'Delirium' ends, and then it also takes place about six months after 'Delirium' ends, and you alternate between the two time frames until they ultimately converge."

I will read this book for one reason: is Alex alive?

Great pick!
