Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.  It's where we share the upcoming releases we're most eagerly anticipating and can't wait to get our hands on! 
This week . . . 

Title:  The Evolution of Mara Dyer
Series:  Mara Dyer #2
Author:  Michelle Hodkin
Publisher:  Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing  
Pages:  272
Release Date:  October 23, 2012

Summary:  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.

Dark and thrilling, suspenseful and passionate, The Evolution of Mara Dyer will have readers breathlessly turning pages to find out what will become of Mara Dyer next.

My Ramblings:  I fell in love with the first book in this series.  It was so unique and interesting and mysterious that I couldn't put it down once I picked it up!  Michelle Hodkin has a very original writing style that has a certain lilting flow to it without sounding silly or forced that I really enjoyed.  

I also loved how she started the first book as a letter from Mara to all the readers saying that her name wasn't really Mara but that she had to hide her identity.  Adds to the wonderfully woven mood of the whole story.  

I have no doubt that this next installment will be just as good, if not better, than the first.  October 23 cannot come quickly enough!

What books are you guys looking forward to?
