The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin is Munch-Worthy

I haven't done one of these posts in a while, which doesn't make any sense, because there are a lot of books coming out that I want to read! This is one of them that is really high up on my list.

Mara Dyer believes life can't 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 strangely unharmed.

There is.

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

She's wrong.
I wanted to read this book ever since I saw the cover. I had no idea what it was about, but my goodness! That cover! It's so fascinating that it immediately drew me in.

And that synopsis? Such a teaser. But I want to read more. Just one chapter is not enough. In fact, you too can read the first chapter of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and see for yourself how good this is going to be.

Only five and a half more months!

Releases September 27, 2011 from Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing.

Thank you for bringing this book to my attention! The teaser is definitely captivating (as is the first chapter!)

I have to admit that I wasn't expecting the elements of magical realism, but they fit nicely into the story and have me dying for the next installment in the novel already! Next year can't come fast enough! I need more Noah, for sure, and, as the novel's ending did leave room for interpretation, I'm a little bit worried about where it might go in the next book. Like I said, I need it now. the wait it killing me!
