(A lovely picture of our Christmas tree, a fab book, & my big ol' belly)
I just finished The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer & I could NOT put it down.
"Mara Dyer doesn't believe life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there. It can.
THINGS I LOVED:
It moved at such a pace that I could not put it down.
It was terribly romantic story- my fav part.
The dialogue was sarcastic, fast, & spot on.
It's a semi-murder mystery & a little spooky which is sorely lacking in YA.
That cover- love it.
THINGS I DIDN'T LOVE:
I thought the weakest parts of the story were the paranormal moments.
It's one of those "really good looking guys" falls for the "not popular new girl" (Gag!)
The plot got a little convoluted at the end of the story- again due to paranormal stuff.
There is some language in it & a ton of really funny sexual innuendo. But if bawdy jokes bother you, you may not love a lot of the teen dialogue here (I thought it was kinda hilarious). Also it's pretty intense- mentally, emotionally, scary-wise.
Has anyone else read this?
What did you guys think?
