The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

I Loved it! I can say this is one of my favourites in my top 5 right now and I have yet to read the second or third one. I just love Michelle’s writing, I love the plot, I love the characters. Everything about it is so good.

I was intrigued by Noah the entire book. He was mysterious at first and then became cocky, confident and super flirty with Mara. At first Mara did not like Noah, but as they talked more and run ins with them became more frequent. Mara found herself liking Noah. Hell, I became to like Noah. The way Michelle describes Noah throughout the book is a constant reminder that you yourself have a crush on him. I’ve had my fair share of fictional crushes but I think Noah takes first place.

I like the way Michelle keeps you guessing with the way Mara thinks about things and then you wonder if it actually happened or not. She is super descriptive which I love. Not that I don’t like to picture things on my own but with this book she just describes everything so well that it paints a perfect picture in my mind. I was able to read this book in 3 days and that is good for me considering I have a baby. I just sacrificed nap times for myself when my son napped. (The dishes also might have sat all night)

I love this book so much. I heard that the second one is even better. I totally recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

There is.

She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love.
She's wrong.
