Me on Waiting on Wednesday (36)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
Author: Michelle Hodkin
Release Date: September 27, 2011
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing

From Goodreads:

Mara Dyer doesn't think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there. 

It can.

She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed.

There is.

She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love.

She's wrong.

This is one of those books where I feel like I'm the only one who hasn't read it and it sucks because a lot of people are gushing, like The Near Witch (which I've since read) or Wolfsbane (which I'll be buying this weekend when I'm away). It sounds rather spooky and weird, a little like Michele Jaffe's Rosebush, which I enjoyed. And the cover is gorgeous.


  1. A great pick! I am looking forward to this one as well.

    My WoW,

    Have a nice week :)

  2. It's funny you say it seems like you're the only one who hasn't read it, because I know what you mean. When I first saw your pick my first thought was "that book isn't out YET?" I've seen so many reviews and people talking about it that it seems like it already is available.

    The cover is amazing. I'm in the same boat as Christy and yourself, I haven't read it. I've pre-ordered the book. Can't wait for it to arrive :D

    Don't be a stranger,

  4. I'm guilty of reading it, and it is very good! I hope you enjoy it!

    I'm actually really excited for it to be released because Michelle Hodkin told me that since the ARC was released she has made some changes that are important for the sequel, so hopefully that will make you feel a bit better!

    My WoW can be found:

  5. I can't wait for this one!!! Every time I see the cover I fall more in love with it!

    Check out my WOW this week!

  6. It's a great one, even though I've only read the first fifty pages (I want to savor it!) and your copy should be coming soon. maybe. hopefully. YES. :D

  7. I really want to read this too!

  9. This was my pick of the week, as well! Everyone has read it and I want to get my hands on it so badly. *sigh*
    Rosebush! That's the name of the book Mara Dyer has been reminding me of! I only read the synopsis and then I forgot what it was called. Now I'll write it down so I can get it.

  10. Good pick, heard of this one.

  11. Yay! My WoW pick too.
