The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by: Michelle Hodkin

Synopsis:

Mara Dyer doesn't think life can get
any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
It can.
She believes there must be more to the
accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously
unharmed.
There is.
She doesn't believe that
after everything she's been through, she can fall in love.
She's
wrong.








Thoughts: Just wow. There are literally no words for my reaction to how this book ended. So excuse me while I ramble for a second... this book was AMAZING. Just amazing. It's hot, twisted, funny, crazy, awesome, amazing... did I mention amazing? Easily my favorite read of the year so far. EASILY.

This book starts off with Mara Dyer and an accident. An accident that killed her friends and left her the only survivor. She awakes in the hospital with no memory of what happened. After convincing her family to move away from the memories Mara's world starts to turn upside down. She has no idea what is going on with her, but with the help of Mr. Noah (SEXY) Shaw things may be beginning to make sense... or are they?


Honestly, you think you know what is going on, you think you know what is happening but up until that last page... every theory is thrown from your brain (so make sure you're wearing your seat belt)! I can't give a review like I normally would because I know it would be entirely to easy to spoil something. This book was twisted in the best possible way. I tore through the pages. Noah Shaw is just the sexiest boy ever. His every move, every word (English btw!), his touch, his swag, his hair, his necklace, the way his eyes devour Mara... I. Just. Can't. Get. Enough. Of. Him! The images in this book are also so vivid and I want to know more... so much more! I want to know about Mara. I want to know about Noah. I want to know about.... you really didn't think I was going to tell you, did you? ;)


Seriously, buy this book... no buy FOUR, because I promise you, you will love it. I want Book2 SO MUCH words can't even describe how much I want book2. I need to know what the HECK happened at the end of the book... my jaw seriously dropped to the floor. It all made sense but... HOW. HOW. Just wow. I'm in love with this book. I will being buying more than one when it comes out. One to keep and hold and snuggle with. One to give away so I can share the MARA DYER love, and the others i'm sure i'll hang them around my room or something. ;) I cannot rave enough about this book, so I'm going to cut myself off, but before I do... Mad kudos to you Michelle. I loved the concept, the story, the romance, the family, the friends, and the cover is just so gosh darn beautiful. A million stars out of five. :)


PS. I want Mara to wear yellow in the next book. Just for fun ;) HAHAHA.

    and well I love humorus, romantic books with a touch of mistery and this book sounds exaclty like that.
