Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by where bloggers can highlight upcoming books they’re excited to read. My choice for this week is:


Panic by Lauren Oliver

Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a dead-end town of 12,000 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 canada goose down mitt Canada Goose langford parka outlet store, 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.

Expected publication: March 4th 2014 by HarperCollins

Why I’m Waiting

I really enjoyed Lauren Oliver’s Delirium series and I’m excited to see what she comes up with next.   I like the ambiguity around this title.  Most people seem to assume that this is going to be a dystopian Hunger Games-esque , but Oliver’s claim that this is her return to standalone realism makes me think otherwise.  I want to know what Panic is, whether it’s dystopian sci fi or teenage games.
