Waiting on Wednesday: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine and is a post detailing an upcoming book you can't wait to read.

This week I've chosen The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. The cover art is absolutely stunning and I haven't really read too much about this one - it looks like a story that's best enjoyed if you go in blind.

Publication date: September 27th 2011
Published by: Simon & Schuster

Summary (from Goodreads): Mara wakes up from a coma with no memory of the accident that caused the deaths of her best friend, boyfriend, and boyfriend's sister. The doctors tell her parents that starting over in a new state, a new school will be good for her and to let the memories come back on their own.

But Mara's new start is anything but when she sees the faces of her dead friends everywhere and her world is falling apart. And then she begins to see people's deaths before they happen - at least she thinks that is what is happenning. On top of that, the most beautiful boy she has ever seen can't seem to leave her alone, but is his agenda more than he leads on?


So what about you guys? What are your picks for this week?


  1. I'm very much looking forward to this one too - especially after seeing so many people rave about it on twitter. It sounds awesome!

  2. Can't wait for this! The lucky people who have already read it have said it's amazing, and I love the cover. Nice pick!

  3. I think EVERYONE is dying to read this book! ^-^ I'm no exception. Great pick!

  4. I felt like Mara's character was really well drawn out at first. We open with after the event that has killed 3 of her friends and left with no memory of the entire night of the accident. But you can tell she is traumatized by what has happened. Her parents have moved her far away in hopes that a fresh start can help her cope and get on with her life. But, what they don't know is that Mara is on the edge.


Thank you kindly for the comment, you sweet thing.
