Waiting on Wednesday #9: The Retribution of Mara Dyer


 ***"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.***

So what book am I anxiously awaiting to read?
The Retribution of Mara Dyer By Michelle Hodkin


After the cliffhanger, I sat like a child in time-out for about twenty minutes, more or less.
And then firstly, I saw this… 


Secondly, Read this:
"The first thing I noticed when I woke up was that I was covered in blood.

The second thing I noticed was that this didn’t bother me the way it should have.

I didn’t feel the urge to scream or speak, to beg for help, or even to wonder where I was. Those instincts were dead, and I was calm as my wet fingers slid up the tiled wall, groping for a light switch. I found one without even having to stand. Four lights slammed on above me, one after the other, illuminating the dead body on the floor just a few feet away.

My mind processed the facts first. Male. Heavy. He was lying face down in a wide, red puddle that spread out from beneath him. The tips of his curly black hair were wet with it. There was something in his hand.

The fluorescent lights in the white room flickered and buzzed and hummed. I moved to get a better view of the body. His eyes were closed. He could have been asleep, really, if it weren’t for the blood. There was so much of it. And by one of his hands it was smeared into a weird pattern.

No. Not a pattern. Words.

PLAY ME.

My gaze flicked to his hand. His fist was curled around a small tape recorder. I moved his fingers—still warm—and pressed play. A male voice started to speak.

"Do I have your attention?" the voice said.

I knew that voice. But I couldn’t believe I was hearing it"

And now I am died. WHAT THE HELL IS THIS.
I cannot wait unit the final installment comes out. Although as you guys might know, it's publication date has been pushed back to June 10th 2014

  15. I've only read the first book in this series but I didn't really know what to think of it. It was kind of a mind fuck. It was a good read though and I definitely want to read the second book but ah so many books so little time!

    1. I totally agree with you, ⅔s done with the series and I still don't understand a ⅓ of it. It really is a good series but very trippy.
