Mandi Kaye @ Never Too Fond of Books

Louisa May Alcott may as well have been writing about me when she wrote "She is too fond of books and it has turned her brain!" But I am a staunch believer that there is no such thing.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer - Michelle Hodkin Review at http://www.mandikayereads.com/archives/1801 (5/16)Holy surprising book, Batman!I knew nothing about this book when I went in- other than the blurb that's up there. Nothing. Based on that description, I assumed it must be some sort of Contemporary YA novel that would be a good read.It was much, much more.I don't even know how to describe it. My friend Amanda did a pretty good job:And honestly, that kind of sums it up.This is one of those books that sucks you in and gets under your skin right away. It kept me guessing, which I always adore when reading a book that has an air of mystery and intrigue about it. I'm still guessing, truth be told. What's real? What isn't? I suspect this book has only begun to scratch the surface of a much larger story- one that I absolutely cannot wait to read.Will everything we think we know- what Mara thinks she knows- be turned upside down? Somehow, I suspect it will.And I can't leave without mentioning Noah. Perfect, lickable, amazing Noah. If that's not enough to intrigue you, nothing will.
