WTF did I just read.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is the most mind-fucked book you can read. From the beginning you get this letter from "Mara Dyer" that gives information but you don't know what to do about them. Reading on, you get that hey, her friends died and she survived and she's moving away and she starts getting crazy but not crazy. What can I tell you about this book that will not spoil it?
Mara Dyer is a likable character. She has this snarky side and she can stand up for herself which I found very refreshing. One side of me thinks she's crazy and she needs help but the other side of me thinks she completely sane--for now.
Hrmm alright now her relationship with Noah. Um, yes, they are perfect together. But I don't know, I loved whenever they saw each other they bantered and I loved that! But then they got closer and then that banter stuff just died away and I really missed that! And their relationship just became so ehh... for me by then but I was trying to convince myself they were still adorable together--don't get me wrong, they still had very adorable scenes, but yeah, I should stop it, that they will banter adorably again--I don't think it's going to happen anytime soon.
Alright but why couldn't this book have more creepy scenes in it! I was waiting for something drastic to happen and that freaking ending like ADLKFJAL; no kidding I wanted to scream AKDFLAJ;DSJA into the air somehow! The story itself focused too much on romance and the actual goodness on the sidelines waiting to come in.
This book will play with your head and it will not be a fun experience.
Too wonder, too wonder whether (or not) to pick up the second book. Decisions, decisions.
