Waiting on Wednesdays: Panic by Lauren Oliver

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine!


Panic by Lauren Oliver

Publish Date: March 4, 2014
Publisher: HarperCollins

I am almost always a fan of Lauren's books. I'm definitely excited for a new one from her. Not sure if it's stand-alone or a new series.

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, 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.

  8. I've read this one! It was very good, but not as good as the Delirium series, or Before I Fall. But I still really enjoyed it!

    Mind checking out my WoW?

  9. Oooo yes Alison! I'm really excited about this one as well, I adore Lauren Oliver. And is it me, or has the number of covers featuring long wind-blown hair increased greatly of late? Of course now that I've brought it up I'm not going to be able to come up with an example, but I know I've seen a lot of them:)

  10. Great choice! I LOVE Lauren's work and can't wait to read this one. I also love how it sounds like a dystopian, but it's really contemporary. Can't wait to see what you think of it!
