{Waiting on Wednesday #7} Dishing Dystopian’s: Requiem & Untitled (Divergent #3)

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers can rant and rave about any upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating. For my addition, I will be spotlighting both an upcoming book AND video game release that I am dying to get my hands on!

What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?
The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth’s #1 New York Times bestselling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.





I can’t even breathe the right words to express how much  I LOVE – Epically LOVE this series! If you haven’t read Divergent or thing YA Dystopians are not your thing, then you are truly missing out on a series I believe is on the same level as Harry Potter. I would pretty much give a couple of limbs to get my hands on an early copy but it probably won’t happen. It’s okay though, I have it on pre-order.  😉

Requiem by lauren Oliver
Title: Requiem (Delirium, #3) 
Author: Lauren Oliver
ISBN-13: 9780062014535
Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers
Publication date: 3/5/2013
Pages: 432

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. 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.




Given the way all the shenanigans went down at the end of Pandemonium, I am almost scared to read this novel. I LOVED every EPIC minute of this series. There is so much freaking tension and angst I wanted to jump right into my iPod and scream at people. GOSH, I can’t wait until March 5th, I might just have a nervous breakdown before then. ******AHHHHHHHH******













So what about you? What games or books are you waiting on?
