Mara Mondays - Top Ten Reasons to PreOrder THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER by Michelle Hodkin

For the month of September, leading up to the release of THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER on September 27th, I'll be featuring some Mara related excitement every Monday.

So, today I have for you the Top Ten Reasons to Pre-Order Mara Dyer.

10. You've already heard a lot about it, so you're curious to see what all the buzz is about, but want the chance to go into it with an open mind and have your own experience with it before hearing too many more opinions.

9. Why would you want to wait any longer to get your hands on a copy? I've only been talking about my slight obsession with this one since June!

8. You want to dedicate the weekend of October 1st to reading this book (because you won't be able to put it down once you start).

7. You appreciate complex characters in your books.

6. You're willing to suspend your disbelief and feed a little dissonance in your mind while you read for a quality reading experience of a mystery/psychological thriller - and you don't mind a little magical-paranormal and romance thrown in with it.

5. You're a fan of multi-genre books that keep you on your toes. This one will alternately make you want to rant, rave, yell at, question, shake, and hug the main characters throughout the book.

4. You really want to finally meet Noah Shaw (trust me on this one)!

3. You want to find out who Mara Dyer is, and can get behind an unreliable narrator. Oh, and you appreciate some snark with your main characters.

2. You love reading books that surprise you, make you think, make you smile, make you afraid, make you feel, make you crave more, right?

1. You definitely want to make sure you have this one right away so the shocker of an ending doesn't get spoiled for you!

and a bonus 
1/2. Michelle Hodkin is hosting a pre-order contest where you can win an annotated ARC, t-shirts, signed bookmarks, cover art posters, or a Nook! See all the details on her blog. That is definitely worth a pre-order!

You can pre-order THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER from your favorite book seller today (and you should).

Don't forget to check out this week's other Mara Mondays offerings and comment away to be entered in Lori's contest at Pure Imagination.
