The Unbecoming of Mara DyerBook: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer #1)

Author: Michelle Hodkin

Published: September 27, 2011

Genres: Young Adult, Mystery, Romance

Summary: Mara Dyer believes life can’t 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 strangely unharmed.
There is.

She doesn’t believe that after everything she’s been through, she can fall in love.
She’s wrong.



My Review: I think I’ve been putting off reading this book for a good month or two. I bought it on my Kindle, when I got an Amazon giftcard, and I meant to read it as soon as I bought it but I got distracted by The Raven Boys.. And then by every other book I own. But I’ve finally read it and thank god I did.

I saw quite a bit of people on Goodreads, BookTube, and on book blogs saying that this book was perfect for Halloween. And the first chapter or two I read a while back, although I didn’t read further until yesterday, I somewhat agreed. After having read the entire thing, it really was creepy. I think picking up this series around Halloween time was the perfect time to read it.

To sum it up: I loved it, I loved it, I loved it. I loved it. 

Did I mention I loved it? Cause I did.


I’m going to make sure I don’t include spoilers, which pretty much means this is going to be the shortest review in the history of ever, but hey. That’s okay.

Read this if:

  • You like hot boys with British accents
  • You like sarcastic hot boys with accents
  • If you want a creepy read, which includes a hot guy
  • You like just plain creepy things

I’m joking when I say that all that matters in this book is the hot guy. Kinda. It genuinely is a really good book, english boy or not, and everyone needs to read it.

I hope everyone has a fantabulous day/evening/morning/whenever you’re reading this and happy reading!
