Review: 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.
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.

This book left me with a big question mark on my forehead. I definitely have questions and I'm in extreme need of answers! That said... I can now move on with my review. This book was amazing from the start. The first chapter alone left me with goosebumps and a sense of wonder for what was in store. The characters were amazing. Mara herself.. although creepy at times... entirely likeable. As for Noah Shaw... add him to my list of swoon worthy YA guys!!! He deserves to be somewhere towards the top! Thats for sure. New obsession? Most likely! Another thing I simply must gush over about this book.. The writing! I loved the humor! A book that can make me LOL over and over and over... deserves an awesome rating! This book definitely earned those 4 stars! The only think holding it back from a full five had to be the last few chapters. I wish I could elaborate, but I'm not one to post spoilers so I'll just say this.... Huh????? Yup that about sums it up! I'm still tryin to wrap my mind around those last few chapters. Perhaps more will be explained in part 2? I can't wait to find out! :)


  1. Noah Shaw is my new Patch. THAT'S RIGHT, I REPLACED PATCH. I'm only about 150 pages in but OMG I am hooked!! MUST KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!

  2. I'm so wanting to read this. so many books that are out and coming out that I wanna read. Nice review. All these reviews of this make me want it that much more.

  3. I'm actually reading this next. I had no idea it was funny; cool! I've heard the ending is a big question mark. Well, at least I'm prepared for that.

  4. I am getting rerady to start this book so I can't wait to read it now. And I love books that can make me show some type of emotion. Like laughin or crying that to me shows it is a good book.

  5. I finally ordered this one from Amazon. I hope to get to it soon!

  6. You're so right!

    It was the last couple of chapters that made me truly lost it, I'm not even sure I fully understood what happened, but that scene towards the end with Noah and Mara before they entered you know where... THAT WAS SO CUTE!

    Noah's a romantic! who would have thought?! :) *swoon*

  7. I read the ARC for this, and ooh boy it was great!
    Michelle told me on twitter than some of the end was changed in the final copy, so I can't wait for my hardcover to hurry up and get here!!

    Great Review

  8. I read the finished copy and I'm with you. It's a hard book to review! I finally wrote (on Goodreads) "it raises more questions than it answers, but in a good way."
