Waiting on Wednesday (Feb. 12)

Waiting on Wednesday is a blog meme hosted by Breaking The Spine that aims to showcase any release you're eagerly anticipating! Please head on to their blog to know more and to join! :)

As much as the end of the Delirium series disappointed me, I'm very excited to read Panic by Lauren Oliver. It comes out March 4th and I literally cannot wait. I'm jealous of all the people who got to read the ARC. I hope Lauren Oliver delivers superbly this time, considering Requiem was a little weak for someone who's writing and imagination caliber I consider to be one of the best in Young Adult. 

Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a dead-end town of twelve thousand people in the middle of nowhere: because it was summer, and there was nothing else to do.
Heather never thought she would compete in Panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors, where the stakes are high and the payoff is even higher. She'd never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver than she ever thought.
Dodge has never been afraid of Panic. His secret will fuel him, and get him all the way through the game; he's sure of it. But what he doesn't know is that he's not the only one with a secret. Everyone has something to play for.
For Heather and Dodge, the game will bring new alliances, unexpected revelations, and the possibility of first love for each of them—and the knowledge that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need the most.

  2. Would you believe me if I told you I haven't read a single book by Lauren Oliver? I've heard controversial opinions on them and just don't dare. Not that I have the time anyways, but even if I did, I'd first think about it.

    Here's my WOW

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I felt the same thing while reading The Selection by Kiera Cass. It took a while for me to just get over it and just read it for myself!
