You know that little book that I kind of liked? The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer? Maybe I should say that book that I am utterly obsessed with? The one that I LOVED! Yeah, that one. The very amazing Mara Dyer is a contestant in the YA Sisterhood’s Tournament of Heroines! You can find out more about the tournament by clicking there, but after you do that you need to visit Casey at The Bookish Type to learn how you can support Mara! Here’s so info about Mara’s first challenger:
Our first challenger is Karou from The Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, advocated by Enna of SqueakyBooks. Karou is great and all, but she’s got nothing on our girl Mara! So be sure to come out and support Team Mara on December 16th! Word on the street (AKA on Michelle Hodkin’s twitter feed) is that if Mara makes it into round 2, there will be more of THIS Noah-licious outtake PLUS an extra treat (an extra scene? the uncut too-hot-to-handle trailer? Bradley the trailer actor reading Noah passages from the book?)
Head over to The Bookish Type to get your Team Mara buttons and backgrounds. We all know how awesome Mara is, so let’s help her kick some ass!! 🙂
And if you aren’t 100% committed to Mara as your pick here is a excerpt that proves why you should pick her:
“I swelled with loathing, brimmed with it. I’d never hated anyone as much as I hated him in that moment; my fingers itched with the violence they wanted to do but couldn’t. So I turned and ran, to give my trembling limbs some some relief from the fury that boiled up from a dark place I didn’t know existed. My feet pounded the pavement, wishing they could trample the smile on that piece of filth’s face. And as the thought spiked in my brain, I saw it. The redneck’s skull caved in, leaving a gaping, pulpy hole in the side of his head. A thick cloud of flies clogging his mouth. Blood staining the sandy dirt by the lumber pile in a wide, darkening pool around his body.
He deserved to die.”
