The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer Launch! Celebrate and Win!

Do you know what day it is? No?

Today is the launch of the fabulous Michelle Hodkin's debut: THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER!!!!!!


I got this book late one day--I was super busy, but thought Hey, I'll check out the first chapter. I then read until 4 in the morning, and as soon as I was done, I texted Michelle and demanded MORE RIGHT NOW.

She laughed at me.

And I have yet to break into her house and/or mind and steal the sequel. BUT I WILL.

Meanwhile, I did give THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER my second ever blurb.

"WOW. Michelle Hodkin's debut will keep
you guessing until the last page--
and long after."

Trufax. I am still making guesses about what's going to happen next...and what actually did happen in the story I read. That last page? Will blow your mind. 

Want a hint about what the story's about? Check out the creeptastic trailer:


I'll be doing a complete review tomorrow, but in the meantime, check the book out online at these places:
Also: Michelle is awesome. I know this. You know this. Know how you know this? Because she's donated a SIGNED copy of THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER (an ARC) for YOU! Yes, YOU!

Seriously, that trailer was awesomely creepy - as soon as I saw the ol' Ouija board I knew that spelled *trouble* lol

Hullo! Loved the trailer - very mysterious! I love a book where I have to guess where the author is taking me...and then it's somewhere I couldn't imagine (clever author!)

Thanks for the giveaway! Can't wait!

First of all, a big thank you to Michelle (who donated the book) and to you (for throwing the giveaway partey for your worldwide friends, I mean fans!).
There are no words to describe how much I want to read this book. I mean, ever since I found out about it, the first time I got a peak at the cover I thought, wow this book has a beautiful cover. And then I read the synopsis on goodreads and was in a must-read-right-now state (which wasn't really pleasant I must say). And then I waited like a little puppy for this trailer and the first thing when I (finally) got to watch the trailer, was, Noah looks hot (it's a girl thing).
I hope the story is awesome like the trailer.
