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. -Goodreads


This book took me by surprise how much I loved it. The mystery aspect and how it seemed that Mara was slowly, but surly losing  her mind. After the terrible accident that befallen Mara and her friends Mara convinced her family to make the move from Rhode Island to Miami to escape what happen. Even though she doesn’t remember however it’s apparently not done with her yet. She started really having problems with seeing things that aren’t there and seeing her dead friends in mirrors and just around.Plus she was slowly started remembering the accident in parts. Then these freak death’s start happening that seem to only happen when she thinks about it. The only good thing going for her is the support of her family and the most popular boy with the British specking  Noah Shaw. Which helps since everyone thinks she’s crazy.

The romance in this book was good also and was (thankfully) slow coming and sweet.  I mean Mara had enough to deal with then some guy who is known to date them, sleep with them then leave them type of guy. But even in the beginning Noah was always different when it came to Mara and she saw a side no one else saw. Also Noah may not be as different as Mara in the crazy crap that seem to happen to her that can’t be explained.  So the only down part I would like to mention is that it ended to soon, and on a cliffhanger. I need the next book soon because those who read this book knows that cliffhanger was a WTF moment.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer will keep you up all night with the mystery of wanting to know what the hell is happening and seeing if they ever find out. And since there is only three books I expect the next two books have a lot more answer and probably some more questions to. Well i have to wait and see i guess and until next time PICK THIS BOOK UP and happy reading :).
