Want Now--no, scratch that--CRAVE NOW!!!
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
by Michelle Hodkin
"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.
The blurb is kind of vague, but after reading the great reviews on goodreads (and the quotes too), I can't wait to get my hands on this book! You just can't go wrong with a book that's suspenseful and super humorous....and you know, the whole romantic chemistry certainly doesn't hurt...

"Juliette hasn't touched anyone in exactly 264 days.
The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal. As long as she doesn't hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don't fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.
The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war-- and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she's exactly what they need right now.
Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior. "
Okay, another dystopian.... but seriously? This book sounds really good. I've also read some quotes of the book posted on goodreads and the writing in this book is absolutely beautiful! Argh, how I wish I could read this RIGHT NOW.
