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

The Evolution of Mara Dyer (#Mara Dyer #2)
by Michelle Hodkin
Release date: October 23rd,, 2012

Two days after Mara walks into a police station in Miami at the close of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, she is committed for psychiatric treatment for what her parents believe is a mental breakdown. But what seems like a hallucination to everyone else is a chilling reality for Mara. Someone from her past has discovered her strange, disturbing secret and that someone wants her to pay. But she's about to discover that the price is more than she can bear.

Dark and thrilling, suspenseful and passionate, The Evolution of Mara Dyer will have readers breathlessly turning pages to find out what will become of Mara Dyer next.

Unchained (Nephilim Rising, #1) Unchained 
by J.Lynn
Release date: October 16th, 2012 

Between the pissed off creatures that want demon-hunter Lily Marks dead and the fallen angel who just… wants her, Lily is about ready to trade in forever for a comfy job in a cubicle farm. 
Mortal enemies, the fact that Lily and Julian are civil to one another is enough to have her thrown out of the Sanctuary. Even she can build a laundry list of why getting close to him is career suicide, but she can’t shake her not-so angelic stalker or how he brings her dangerously close to ecstasy. 
As if Lily already didn’t have enough problems, the hits just keep coming. Blindsided when a traitor is discovered working from within the Sanctuary, Lily is shocked to find he's determined to get her kicked out. Her relationship with Julian provides the perfect fuel for suspicion, and she quickly finds herself being hunted by well, everyone. Her only hope is to discover the real traitor before she loses everything—and she'll need Julian's help. That is, if Julian is really there to help her … or destroy her. 
Yeah, being a Nephilim isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be.

I still haven't read the first Mara Dyer book. But people seem to love it and I was around on twitter the cover for book #2 was released. It was amusing to see everybody so exited. 
I haven't heard of Unchained before. It sounds quite interesting. Another addition to my ever-increasing wish list :)

I haven't read the first book in the Mara Dyer series and for some reason, they don't really appeal to me. But Unchained sounds really good. And I love the cover :)

Elodie RASO said...

I'm actually dying to read these two books :) !! Great picks girls !!
Unchained sounds great and it'll come out not long before Deity, it'll prevent me from turning crazy because I desperately want to read the thrid book in the Covenant series !!

Dani (Pen to Paper) said...

Aaah! Waiting for The Evolution of Mara Dyer is almost killing me! :P 

I loved the first book, so I'm hoping this one is just as good (if not, better)! 

I'd not heard of Unchained before, but it's definitely on my wishlist now!
