Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
I don't always post Waiting on Wednesday posts, but I like to post them around ALA so I can keep track of my most anticipated books. These are books that my librarian self are very excited about and I can't wait to see if they live up the hype!
Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler, illustrated by Maira Kalman
About the Book: Min Green and Ed Slaterton are breaking up, so Min is writing Ed a letter and giving him a box. Inside the box is why they broke up. Two bottle caps, a movie ticket, a folded note, a box of matches, a protractor, books, a toy truck, a pair of ugly earrings, a comb from a motel room, and every other item collected over the course of a giddy, intimate, heartbreaking relationship. Item after item is illustrated and accounted for, and then the box, like a girlfriend, will be dumped.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
About the Book: Mara Dyer doesn't think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed.
She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love.
