Young Adult

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

2 out of 5 Stars

I know this is an unpopular opinion but I didn’t like this book.. Well I don’t know how I feel it.. It was weird. It was super dramatic and angsty, which isn’t the kind of book I usually enjoy. So.. Do I rate it low because I really didn’t like it? Is that really fair when I picked up a book that was way, way out of my comfort zone? Bah.

So I enjoyed parts of this story… I think I like the idea of this story more than I liked the actual story. The idea that a girl has some seriously messed up gift seemed interesting. But I think my problem was that I didn’t like Mara and I really didn’t like Noah either. It’s hard to get into a complex story like this when I don’t like the characters. I think a lot of the school drama was unnecessary too. Unless some of those characters have gifts too?? If not, then yeah waste of my freaking time.

And that ending? psh. So freaking dramatic.

I may read the next book.. I haven’t really decided yet. I kind of want to know how it goes.. but then a part of me really doesn’t care.
