Mara Dyer doesn't think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.MY THOUGHTS:
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.

WOW! Since finishing this book left my mind feeling like a huge puddle, I borrowed this picture from Michelle Hodkin's awesome blog which basically sums up what I'm thinking:
OMG because oh my gosh, this book was freaking amazing! And WTF because what just happened, there are ALLIGATORS??
It's no exaggeration when I say that The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer has been one of my most anticipated reads of the year, and it doesn't disappoint! It's dark and creepy and thrilling and breathtaking and undoubtedly the kind of book that prompts incoherent reviews like this one.
Mara is the perfect heroine for this novel! She's snarky, fun, and realistic in every way (except for the whole supernatural aspect, of course). And her brothers, her best friend Jamie, and Noah (the hot, bad-ass, and sweet love interest) just complete the amazing cast.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is a book you don't want to miss. It's unlike anything you've ever read before — a chilling mystery, swoon-worthy romance, and supernatural surprise all wrapped in one! Just when you think you know what's going to happen, Michelle Hodkins throws up a wall and you're back to square one. She frustrates you, makes you swoon, and keeps you holding your breath.
And I love it! ♥
BUY or BORROW?: Buy it for sure! It's the kind of book you just have to pick up again immediately after!
