Let's discuss the first book in the Mara Dyer series by Michelle Hodkin
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1) by Michelle Hodkin
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer:

Mara Dyer believes life can't get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
It can.

She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her strangely unharmed.
There is.

She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love.
She's wrong.

Alright so I've requested the book from the library. I may start 1 first and then the other in mid-month. Depending on when I get this in.

Nicola | 138 comments Requested from the library too and there aren't any other requests so should hopefully get both to read. :)

message 6: by Nicola (new)

Nicola | 138 comments How are you finding it?

It was love/hate for me. Loved the overall idea but Noah really irritated me, haha. Still excited to read the next two though!


message 7: by Sara, The Meme Mod! (new)

Sara | 3861 comments Mod
So far so good, I think Noah's a little irritating too. I'm going to try to finish it tonight :)

Same here! Reading Unbecoming to prepare for Evolution, I like the way it's written but am super confused by what's going on.

Since we've all finished book 1 by now, I am going to add the second book up here.
The Evolution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #2) by Michelle Hodkin
The Evolution of Mara Dyer:

Mara Dyer once believed she could run from her past.
She can’t.

She used to think her problems were all in her head.
They aren’t.

She couldn’t imagine that after everything she’s been through, the boy she loves would still be keeping secrets.
She’s wrong.

In this gripping sequel to The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, the truth evolves and choices prove deadly. What will become of Mara Dyer next?


Start Date: February 15th 2015

Sara | 3861 comments Mod
Yeah I think it's just a trilogy too - I'm still only on chapter 10, but now that I finished throne of glass I can focus on this one more and get it done quicker.

The Retribution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #3) by Michelle Hodkin

The last of the series!
Mara Dyer wants to believe there's more to the lies she’s been told.
There is.

She doesn’t stop to think about where her quest for the truth might lead.
She should.

She never had to imagine how far she would go for vengeance.
She will now.

Loyalties are betrayed, guilt and innocence tangle, and fate and chance collide in this shocking conclusion to Mara Dyer’s story.

Retribution has arrived.


Starting March 15th

My book came in a little early but I'll still wait until Sunday :)


message 43: by Sara, The Meme Mod! (new)

Sara | 3861 comments Mod
Has anyone started yet? I haven't because I'm trying to finish another book first...


message 44: by Brandy (new)

Brandy | 2533 comments I am just finishing up a book then I will be starting. So this afternoon sometime.
I hope it ends well and doesn't get ridiculous or rushed.


message 45: by Brandy (new)

Brandy | 2533 comments I am not far in this book but even if it isn't all in her head, Mara is a nutcase.

Hahaha love it. I'm hoping to start by tomorrow!


message 47: by Brandy (new)

Brandy | 2533 comments I am about 50%. So far I like the 1st 2 books better.


message 48: by Sara, The Meme Mod! (new)

Sara | 3861 comments Mod
Just started! I'm confused so far..


message 49: by Brie (new)

Brie | 568 comments Seriously! I wonder how writers get their ideas sometimes!


message 50: by Brandy (new)

Brandy | 2533 comments I don't like the flashbacks that started in book 2 and have continued. It might be because I am doing the audio version and it takes a minute before I know what reality it is in.
