Waiting on Wednesday #3

 "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!

This week we're both featuring books that will be released this fall.

Kait's Pick -

The Evolution of Mara Dyer - Michelle Hodkin
Expected Publication:October 23rd, 2012
From Goodreads:
 The truth about Mara Dyer's dangerous and mysterious abilities continues to unravel in this gripping sequel to the thrilling "The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer." One week after Mara walked into a police station in Miami at the close of "The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer," she has been committed to psychiatric treatment for what her parents believe was 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, deeply disturbing secret and that someone wants her to pay. But when no one believes the truth, Mara is totally helpless. The only person on her side is Noah Shaw, as sexy and handsome as he is loyal and cunning. Noah is the only person who can help Mara--as long as he doesn't get himself killed in the process.

The first book in this series, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, left us with a serious cliffhanger. I can't wait to find out what happens next with Mara & Noah. If you haven't started this series yet, I suggest you run out and get the first book. Now.


Beth's Pick
  I can not WAIT for this book. I'm sad that it's the final book in the series, but i'm so excited for the conclusion. The end of Cassia's story.

 Reached - Ally Condie
Expected Publication: November 13th, 2012

Cassia faces the ultimate choices in the long-anticipated conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Matched Trilogy

After leaving Society and desperately searching for the Rising—and each other—Cassia and Ky have found what they were looking for, but at the cost of losing each other yet again: Cassia has been assigned to work for the Rising from within Society, while Ky has been stationed outside its borders. But nothing is as predicted, and all too soon the veil lifts and things shift once again.

In this gripping conclusion to the #1 New York Times bestselling Matched Trilogy, Cassia will reconcile the difficulties of challenging a life too confining, seeking a freedom she never dreamed possible, and honoring a love she cannot live without
