This Book in a Song: Sway by The Kooks


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.



The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin is an intriguing read. This book is so beautifully written and always keeps you thinking. Mara Dyer is the only survivor of an accident that killed her closest friends. She does not remember what happened during the accident, in fact, she doesn’t remember the last couple days. All she knows is that she is alive and her friends aren’t. Mara starts seeing visions of her dead friends where ever she goes. The doctors all diagnosis it as Post traumatic Stress Disorder, she calls it crazy. Mara meets a wonderfully handsome guy named Noah. Noah has a bad boy reputation. He is said to play a girl and leave her the next day. Mara ignores all warnings takes her chances anyways. Mara and Noah are an amazing couple. They are literally and figuratively made for each other. Mara and Noah both went through some tough times before they met each other. Together, both of them slowly learn they aren’t entirely crazy.

Paranormal is a genre I normally don’t read. In this book you can’t tell if it’s paranormal or if Mara really does have PTSD. The plot is so riveting and will keep you questioning your sanity. Michelle Hodkin creates a romance that feels realistic. Her characters are absolutely amazing. Noah is a perfect kind of cocky and it’s adorable how he will stop at nothing to protect Mara. Most importantly he becomes her friend. A true loyal friend. I love the mystery aspect of this book. Its exciting to watch Mara learn what she is and what she has become. I recommend this to readers who like to be kept on their feet. This book not only has an amazing cover but also an incredible story.

        So, did you like the book? Jk, obviously Mara blew your mind. As it did mine. I’m not sure I’d say it’s my fatirove read of the year, but I really liked it. Mara’s voice is perfect and, like you, I connected with her so much. I’m dying for the sequel!

      I saw this a couple of weeks ago. I saved it beausce the cover really grabbed me. I always love the water-like, floating look. It always gets my attention. But I have heard amazing things about this as well. It sounds beautiful and the characters sound memorable. But since you gave it a 10 out 0f 5, I plan on getting this the day of release LOL! Amazing review, thank you so much hon :)
