Waiting on Wednesday (11)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that occurs here; we bloggers post about the books that we'd really like to read now :)

This is my WoW BEA edition AKA after reading everyone's posts about these books & listening to the video of the "Early Buzz Panel" posted online, I really wish the release dates were already here.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Release Date: September 27, 2011

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.


The Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon
Release Date: October 4, 2011

A move to Ireland is about to introduce Megan to her destiny, her real destiny, can she embrace it and will she survive it? 

A tragedy in Megan’s past set her on a predetermined course. A chain of events has been set in motion that brings Megan to Kinsale, a small town in the south of Ireland where her destiny awaits her. Her life starts to fall into place as she makes new friends and settles into her new school. However, the reclusive and distant Adam DeRĂ­s calls to her body and soul. 

She finds herself increasingly drawn to Adam and his strange family. Adam knows a secret from her past and he and his family hold the key to her future. A future that binds her to Adam and his world, a world of power, mystery and ancient orders. A world that unbeknownst to her, she very much belongs in.


The Pledge by Kimberly Derting
Release Date: November 15, 2011

Words are the most dangerous weapon of all... 

In the violent country of Ludania, the classes are strictly divided by the language they speak. The smallest transgression, like looking a member of a higher class in the eye while they are speaking their native tongue, results in immediate execution. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina has always been able to understand the languages of all classes, and she’s spent her life trying to hide her secret. The only place she can really be free is the drug-fueled underground clubs where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. It's there that she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy named Max who speaks a language she's never heard before . . . and her secret is almost exposed. 

Charlie is intensely attracted to Max, even though she can’t be sure where his real loyalties lie. As the emergency drills give way to real crisis and the violence escalates, it becomes clear that Charlie is the key to something much bigger: her country’s only chance for freedom from the terrible power of a deadly regime.


I've already read both the first chapter & letter-esque prologue of MARA and the first six chapters of Carrier of the Mark online and gawahfs!!  I want to read more.  Now!!

As for the Pledge, I finished Derting's The Body Finder not too long ago, and I've read nothing but good reviews of this new novel.  Plus, it just sounds so captivating.

What're you Waiting on this Wednesday?
Have a good day!!
