Waiting on Wednesday: The Fox Inheritance and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme held by Jill at Breaking the Spine to feature upcoming books that we can't wait to get our hands on. 

Title: The Fox Inheritance 
Author: Mary E. Pearson
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.
Date of Release: August 30, 2011 

Goodreads Description: Once there were three. Three friends who loved each other - Jenna, Locke, and Kara. And after a terrible accident destroyed their bodies, their three minds were kept alive, spinning in a digital netherworld. Even in that disembodied nightmare, they were still together. At least at first. When Jenna disappeared, Locke and Kara had to go on without her. Decades passed, and then centuries. Two-hundred-and-sixty years later, they have been released at last. Given new, perfect bodies, Locke and Kara awaken to a world they know nothing about, where everyone they once knew and loved is long dead. Everyone except Jenna Fox.

Why am I waiting? I loved The Adoration of Jenna Fox - it's one of those books that you have to read - so I'm looking forward to learning more about Locke and Kara now and seeing how they deal with waking up two hundred and sixty years later.


Title: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
Author: Michelle Hodkin
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Date of Release: September 27, 2011 

Goodreads Description: 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.

Why am I waiting? Besides the awesome cover, the premise sounds really intriguing and actually kind of reminds me of The Adoration of Jenna Fox.

  25. I'm looking forward to The Fox Inheritance, but I'm also really scared to read it. I loved Jenna Fox so, so much and I've heard the sequel doesn't live up to the awesomeness. I almost don't want to taint my experience.
