Summary: 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. Of Pandemonium, ALA Booklist noted that “like all successful second volumes, this expands the world and ups the stakes, setting us up for the big finale.”

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.

Why I need this:

I just LOVE this series! It's amazing. So much love, so much action, and two very droolworthy guys to kick up the heat. Yes, please! And I just know that there's going to be a lot of action in this one if the ending to Pandemonium gives us any clues. Plus, I'm dying to know who she ends up with! I'm a huge fan of Alex. After reading Delirium, I was so sure that nothing could change my mind. He was the one for Lena. But then Julian came along in Pandemonium... and well, my heart just melted for him too... I guess I'll just have to see what happens in Requiem before I make my final decision between the two. 

What are you waiting on this Wednesday??
