Waiting on Wednesday: Requiem by Lauren Oliver

Requiem (Delirium, #3)
Gah! big face alert!
They have tried to squeeze us out, to stamp us into the past.

But we are still here.

And there are more of us every day.

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.

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 fiancée of the young mayor.

Maybe we are driven crazy by our feelings.

Maybe love is a disease, and we would be better off without it.

But we have chosen a different road.

And in the end, that is the point of escaping the cure: We are free to choose.

We are even free to choose the wrong thing.

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 (GoodReads).

Requiem by Lauren Oliver comes out next week! GASP! I liked Delirium and realllllly enjoyed Pandemonium. I hope this finale delivers.  Thanks to Jill at Breaking the Spine for hosting WoW, a weekly meme that showcases upcoming publications we are looking forward to. What made your WoW this week?

(See our review of Delirium  and my review and Goosie Mama's review of Pandemonium)


  1. So, even though I've had Delirium on my shelf for the longest time, and I still haven't read it! Not that the last book is about to be released I guess I really need to start reading it. Great pick :)

  2. I haven't read this series yet. I do have a copy of Delirium. Great choice.

  3. This is an excellent choice! Can't wait for it.


  4. I'm a little concerned about the mixed reviews about Requiem. However, so far, I've loved everything that Lauren has written, and I've got this one pre-ordered. I'll have my own opinion soon enough. :)

  6. I can't wait to read Requiem and see how Lauren ends the series. :) I'll be sad to see all the characters go though, especially Alex. ;)

  7. I'm excited to finish of this series! I haven't read Hana's novella yet though so maybe I'll do that before this comes out since it's from both their perspective haha.

    Here's my teaser at Bookmunchies & feel free to check out our giveaway (:

  8. I haven't got round to reading 'Pandemonium' yet but I LOVED 'Delirium' so I should really get onto it. Great choice :)
