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 review is going to be so hard to write. I don’t know how I’m going to make this book sound just as good as it is! I’m just gonna say two words. Noah Shaw. And another two words. Is amazing. 
*fangirl moment*
One of the reasons I kept reading was because of Noah. Noah Shaw is truly amazing!
Noah wasn’t the only amazing thing, though. The way this book was written was, too. Let me just say that I wish I could write as well as Michelle Hodkin! I was hooked right from the start; right from the first sentence. 
At the start, I really loved the book, don’t get me wrong, but I was wondering how I would ever finish it! It was quite long! But, once I’d got into it, I couldn’t put it down! I think I even had an argument with my parents because I didn’t want to stop reading it! 
The characters are just so loveable, even Mara with her hard and troubling past. She was such a great main character: she was strong, but also vulnerable. You know right from the start that this is a character who really has a lot of problems, but can also look after herself.
Noah Shaw. One heck of a love interest. I wish I was Mara! At the start of the book, he seems perfect, but then there is a twist which makes him all the much better! 
I really love the front cover. It’s simple but doesn’t look empty, which I hate in book covers. The font is really good too and stands out in just the right way.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can’t wait until October when the second one is published, as I shall be straight down to my local bookshop to buy it!

    OOh. I found it really difficult to put into words how much I loved this book as well! I really loved everything about it and it was the perfect book to read in order to drag me out of a reading slump. Exciting, romantic and addictive! 🙂 (New follower, by the way!)
