Waiting on... Raven

by Lauren Oliver
Release: March 5, 2013 (HarperCollins)

As a teenager, Raven made the split-second decision to flee across the border to the Wilds, compelled to save an abandoned newborn—a baby girl left for dead and already blue from the cold. When she and the baby are taken in by a band of rebels, Raven finds herself an outsider within a tight-knit group. The only other newcomer is an untrustworthy boy known as the Thief until he finally earns himself a new name: Tack.

Now she and Tack are inseparable, committed to each other, the fledgling rebellion, and a future together. But as they both take center stage in the fight, Raven must decide whether the dangers of the revolution are worth risking her dreams of a peaceful life with Tack.

As her story hurtles back and forth between past and present, Raven transforms from a scared girl newly arrived in the Wilds to the tough leader who helps Lena save former Deliria-Free poster boy Julian Fineman from a death sentence. Whatever the original mission may have been, Raven abides by a conviction that she believes to her core: You always return for the people you love.

HOW did I not realize there is another Delirium novella coming? And it's about Raven! Moving to the Wilds! And becoming a leader! Yes, please!

FYI: All three Delirium previously digital-only novellas will be available together as a paperback called Delirium Stories on March 5, the day Pandemonium (Delirium #3) releases. (This means I will likely own each one separately as ebooks and the paperback with them grouped together, because THAT'S JUST WHO I AM, OKAY!)
IndieBound / Book Depository / B&N / Amazon

No one try to talk to me on March 5, because I'll be very, very busy. Until then, I should probably re-read all things Delirium before then so I make sure I remember all of the details I loved so much the first time around.

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.


  1. Love this series! I need to read the novellas. great choice!

  2. I'm so excited for the paperback, since I'm not a huge fan of ebooks. Loved Delirium, and I'm always excited for more from this series. Great pick!
