Waiting on Wednesday – Alex

Standard

This Wednesday, I’m waiting on…

Title:  Alex
Author:  Lauren Oliver
Published Date:  November 25, 2014
Series:  Delirium Trilogy #3.5
Genre:  Dystopian

This captivating digital original story set in the world of Lauren Oliver’s New York Times bestselling Delirium series focuses on Alex, Lena’s first love.

When Alex sacrificed himself to save Lena, he thought he was committing himself to certain death, but what he got was almost worse. Imprisoned and tortured by the guards, his mind forces him to relive a past he would rather forget. But in the dark he grows stronger. Both hopeful and terrified, he fights to find his way back to her and the love he still clings to.

In this digital story that will appeal to fans of Delirium and welcome new admirers to its world, readers will learn of Alex’s time after the events of Delirium, as well as the dark past that he has tried to forget.

The Delirium Trilogy is one of my favorite YA series, so naturally I’m stoked for another novella to come out–this one from the POV of Lena’s love interest, Alex. I actually have a personal soapbox about wanting more male perspectives in YA literature, so this novella is of particular interest to me.

What do you think? Will you be reading Alex? What else are you waiting on this Wednesday?
