The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer  - Michelle Hodkin 4.5 StarsSmall spoilers ahead!Also on Chibi ReaderI didn't want to read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. Serious, I avoided this book at all cost and I don't even know why. Maybe it was because the cover is absolutely fucking beautiful and I just didn't want to fall let down by another book whose cover was stunning but content was, sorry for my French, shit. So when my dearest friend and co-blogger, Sofyy, was like "YOU MUST READ IT! IT'S AMAZING AND CREEPY AND IT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND!!!" I was like "Girl, you crazy??!"But then she did something so funny: she hilariously bought two physical copies of the book by mistake (and only noticed when the books arrived! Oh Sofyy, you're amazing) and was going to return it but I though 'Oh well, might as well give the book a chance' so she passed the other copy to me. Guess what, I couldn't put the damn book down! It's mind-blowing. And she was right, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is creepy, addictive, and definitely a pageturner. So imagine my face when I finished reading it. In The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer we have Mara, a girl who was in an accident in which her friends died. We don't know what happened, just that she survived. Without spoiling anything, I can only say that they move to Florida. There she goes to a new school and we are right away introduced to Noah Shaw (who everyone is speaking about on tumblr btw!), the mean girl of the school, Anna, and her right arm, Aidan. Aparently, Noah is sex on a stick and every girl has been with him so Mara tries to stay away from him in the beginning. BUT THEN, SURPRISE SURPRISE, Noah is actually a good guy and she obviously is attracted to him. Thank God! He is, as someone said to me on tumblr, British perfection! AH!This book is one of my favourites of 2013 so far but there were things that were kind of left hanging by the end and I hope they are resolved or explained in book 2. First, how come no one even though about Jamie, Mara's first friend at her new school, when he is expelled? Uh, guys, he just disappears and then there's no word from him (well, he is grounded and has no way to communicate outside his house) but not even Mara thinks about him troughout the rest of the book. Wut?? He just goes missing from the book just like that. Then, IF there was more creepy scenes and less romance I wouldn't have minded, too. Of course, I loved all the Noah we got from the book but I wanted more paranormal and creepy from this book. The only supernatural factor appears by the end because, even though I think WE ALL knew the obvious since the beginning and what was happening was not a mistery at all (what Mara is capable of is like a pie in your face. Come on, huge spoiler in the prologue).What I didn't see coming was Noah's secret. He really is a GOOD guy! Wow. And I was completely stunned by the ending. Why would Mara do that??? Why?? And then she just.... (trying not to spoil the ending guys!) ARGGHHHHFinally, why does the little dog (the name isn't coming to me right now) run away from Mara everytime she enters a room?? Does Mara's power scare animals??
