Do you perhaps remember my review of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer? It went a little something like this: "I truly have no idea where to even start. I'm sure if I just said `Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow' over and over again that it would get my point across just fine, but that might be a little repetitive and inarticulate. I'm going to try to get my very gushing thoughts in order for you guys." The same sentiment can certainly be applied to this book...because WOW guys. Just Wow.
I'm not going to say a lot about the plot for two reasons; one, I might spoil something and I really don't want to do that, and two, I think there's going to be a few changes between the ARC I read and the finished version. Know this: everything that you loved in The Unbecoming is still very much present in The Evolution of Mara Dyer. The eeriness, the mind-bending, the just plain crazy pants stuff, and most importantly, NOAH SHAW.
I'm going to go ahead and get my Noah gushing out of the way. With this book he just moved into my number 1 favorite YA boy ever spot. Yes, EVER. I can't put my love (obsession) into words. The chemistry between Mara and Noah was just as intense and sexy as it was in the first book, maybe even more. I honestly blushed and giggled like a teenager. It was awesome. Plus, I don't know the last time I read something this sexy. Whoa. Michelle Hodkin has mastered the perfect balance between an honest, sweet love story and fiery mind-blowing passion.Read more ›
I feel really bad for Mara. Everyone thinks she's crazy, hell there were times where even I thought she was crazy. Honestly the more she learns about her powers, the more scared I become for her. I'm really worried for her. Will she ever fully understand her powers? Will she ever be able to be with Noah without fear of killing him?
If there's one thing that I liked about this series it's the fact that the parents aren't nonexistent In a lot of YA, they always make the parents disappear on a trip, or out of state job but I liked that that didn't happen here. Her family is so great and even though they don't understand what's going on with Mara and probably secretly think she's crazy, they're there for her no matter what.
Throughout most of the book Noah felt like a mystery to me. I realized that we really don't know much about him and he never really talks about how he feels or what he thinks. He has the closed off/unreadable expression down to perfection to the point where I was starting to wonder if he even cared about Mara. But luckily we get to learn more about Noah and from what we do get to see, it just makes me love him more. Noah seems happy but secretly I think he's in a bit of a dark place, one that he doesn't let anyone see.
So I thought I knew where the book was headed but once again I was wrong. There's a twist that I just did not see coming! People who I thought weren't important to the story turn out to play very important parts in the series. And if there's anything this book has made clears it's nothing and nobody are as they appear.Read more ›
Admittedly I was quite on the fence about "The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer"- while I on the whole enjoyed the first 3/4 I didn't enjoy the last 1/4 near as much, which I think is attributed to the genre. I had been under the impression that TUoMD was a contemporary thriller of sorts, however, a speculative fiction story line was also thrown into the mix, which, at the time, was anything but what I wanted. That being said, while reading this book I really enjoyed the speculative fiction aspect of it, which is partly attributable to having had quite a bit of time to process it and thereby come to terms with it and also because I believe that it was ferreted out much better than in its predecessor- questions were answered with answers, not with more questions (which seems to be the trend in YA).
I don't know if these books are the most genius thing I have ever read before or the most cracked out- from flashbacks to India, to a creepy doll, to residents at a psychiatric hospital. At any given time I admittedly only understood between 27.8% and 43.4% of what was going on. But what I do know is that these books are utterly addicting. It becomes evident that the books biggest weakness is also its biggest strength- in not knowing exactly what the book is about the reader feels the need that they HAVE to finish it (and finish it quickly, after all, the quicker you finish it, the sooner your burning questions will be answered).
That being said, prepare yourself... This book not being as much of a 'kissing' book than the first was, an aspect which I think that we all enjoyed (as I can recall I described Noah as 'sex-on-legs' in my review of "The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer").Read more ›
