5 out of 5 stars
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is one of those books – you know the ones that you know aren’t perfect but you love them anyway? That’s what this book is for me. It’s a lot more romance than paranormal-ness(?) and there were times where I thought “Where is this going?” but I was never bored. I enjoyed every single second of this glorious book and it’s going on my favourites shelf and it’s never being removed.
(Also, do you even mind that there’s a load of romance when one of the people is Noah Shaw? Because I don’t. I’m here for it, I am totally and utterly here for that ship.)
I also loved Mara. I can’t even put my finger on it, she was just one of those characters that I fell in love with straight away. I loved her wit, and I loved her narration. It was brilliant (but also totally fucking scary because can you imagine? Can you imagine how scary that must be for people who suffer from hallucinations and delusions?) how you literally didn’t know what was real and what wasn’t; you discovered what was reality and what wasn’t right along with Mara.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I’m so fucking pleased that I have the second and third on hand.
