Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.
By now, I'm well aware of how much like a broken record I sound, but just so we're clear, I've been a little (or... a lot) out of the loop with bookish news, but ANYWAY, here is the book I would basically give a limb for. You know, if you needed one and wanted to trade...
The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Two days after Mara walks into a police station in Miami at the close of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, she is committed for psychiatric treatment for what her parents believe is a mental breakdown. But what seems like a hallucination to everyone else is a chilling reality for Mara. Someone from her past has discovered her strange, disturbing secret and that someone wants her to pay. But she's about to discover that the price is more than she can bear.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer was my absolute FAVORITE book last year, so it's kind of a given that this is only my MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK OF THIS YEAR, but I just like to stare at its cover. And I never posted it on here once it was announced, so I thought I'd grace you with its pretty again, for fun, because I'm sure you've seen it already.
Now, if you're one of those people who STILL has yet to read this/meet Noah Shaw, and keeps saying, "yeah, I'll get around to it eventually...YADDA YADDA YADDA", here's a few of my favorite (non-spoilery) quotes I picked out, to make you change your mind and start it ASAP AKA NOW.
“You smell good," he whispered into my neck. He was warm against me. Instinctively, I arched back into him and smiled."Really?""Mmm-hmm. Delicious. Like bacon.”
“You told me I smelled - like bacon.""Well," he said evenly. "That's awkward.”
"My God, you're like the plague.""A masterfully crafted, powerfully understated, and epic parable of timeless moral resonance? Why, thank you. That's one of the nicest things anyone's ever said to me," he said. "The Disease, Noah. Not the book.""I'm ignoring that qualification."
Now, off you go! And then you may come back here and fangirl with me once you've finished.
The Evolution of Mara Dyer will be released on October 23, 2012.
What are YOU waiting on this Wednesday?
