Book Recommendation: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

Can a book be this amazing? It can.

You should go read this book now, if not yesterday. Because it’s amazing. And you will love it.

“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.”

(I just love the style it’s written in with the: "It can" and "She's wrong.")

But it’s so much more than both of those: It’s mysterious, it keeps you reading and wondering what could possibly be going on, it’s original, it’s incredibly written, it’s spooky, but also romantic, one of the characters is British (need I say more?), and it’s hilarious. How can it be all of these things so wonderfully? You’re just going to have to read it to find out. Seriously. Go get it now. I literally was laughing out loud while reading parts of it, which is pretty rare for a book that isn’t trying to be a comedy.

The title—amazing. The name Mara Dyer? Love it. The cover—beautiful. I won’t get into the fonts because I don’t want to nerd out on you too much here. Noah Shaw—just yes (you’ll understand once you’ve read the book) ;). 

Also I have a special place in my heart for cool authors who are/used to be lawyers—law school for the win—and Michelle Hodkin is one of the few, the proud, representing. 

What’s even better is that it’s a SERIES!! I love series, because just when you find a great book, you are assured that yes, another one is either out or on the way. I cannot wait to read the next book. Let’s just say the last page of this one—amazing, perfect. But don’t peek and read it first!

The book has gotten tons of great praise left and right, so definitely check it out, you won’t be disappointed!
