Lite-Rate-Ture! Reviews: The Unbecoming Of Mara Dyer

The second feature is up and it's an awesome one! I love the way bloggers showcase an authors work. They help get the word out there and being an author would be so much harder without the help of bloggers. So thank you, bloggers! Thank you!

Today's feature showcases Chyna from Lite-Rate-Ture!

Let's get to know Chyna:

Chyna is the head of Lite-Rate-Ture, she usually gets really stressed out almost everyday, and seeks refuge at her local bookstore. Instead of shopping for clothes or kissing boyfriends like a normal teenager she spends her time reading and buying more books. Chyna spends her alone time daydreaming about her book boyfriends. “Why can’t they be real?” She’ll never get a real boyfriend…

Instead of reading, Chyna is also a sports fanatic. She spends her time jogging and lifting weights to maintain her girlish figure. Her all time favorite sport would be volleyball. She had tried almost every sport in the world, but found comfort on a beach volleyball. Just don’t go spelling her name wrong. Her name is pronounced like the country, China. She has no freaking idea that her name is very difficult to read. Don’t screw with her or else she’ll kill you. No kidding. Her bothers also have the same weird names, Sidney and Madrid. Chyna’s parents are very creative, giving their children odd names sure made their lives easier.

Check out her review:

 Mara Dyer doesn’t think life can 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 mysteriously unharmed.

There is.

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

She’s wrong.

“The intrigue and romance will inescapably draw you in.”- Cassandra Clare

I have to admit it the woman is right. This is the type of book that will just put you in awe. When I saw the eerie cover, I just wanted to grab it. Enough about that I am trying to prevent myself from fan-girling.

This books starts off with Mara dyer as the only survivor of a tragic accident that cost her the life of her one and only bestfriend and this other bitch and douchebag. I couldn‘t help myself but grin when this so-called friend, Claire, died in the accident. Rachel is the only friend of Mara’s that I really loved until she moves into this new fancy private school where she meets a super cute friend, Jamie. He is the sweetest. Absolutely. Adorable. In. Size and personality. ;)

In her new school she also meets the sexy Noah Shaw, he just drives her crazy. In every story there is always this one guy that will really really REALLY make you LOVE HIM SO MUCH. Did I also mention that he’s English *cough I get dibs.  ;)

Noah is well….I have no words to describe him. He’s just to sexy. He’s not just a pretty face. He’s smart, he’s cocky, he’s caring, he’s super protective, he’s loving, he’s adorable and he is just DELICIOUS.
Because of Noah’s sudden interest on the new girl, Mara Dyer, she should really watch out because she’s the new prey for the Croyden girls. Croyden is her new private school. I admit that private schools have the best DRAMA.

TBH this book just blew me away. There was no insta-love which drives me crazy pissed. I really hate instant romance. It doesn‘t seem real to me, but Noah and Mara are just a match made in heaven. At the first part it wasn’t obvious that Noah will start to seriously care for Mara because it looked like he was just toying with her… until this certain incident. Naoh is her knight in shining armor, always there to save her especially when she started getting bullied by the Croyden girls. Aahhhh young love…

Mara, if that is even her real name, is unusually different from the usual protagonist I usually read. She’s somehow mysterious and psychotic. Not really psychotic. Well kinda…she was having this scary hallucinations of Jude (The douchebag), Rachel and Claire. Knowing they all died in the accident, it just gave me the chills. It felt like they were still around. As I turned the pages I would check what’s behind me all the time. Seriously! I was that scared.

The ending!

Why do authors love to torture their readers with cliffhangers? I really really REALLY hate those endings huhu they just really make you cry. When I notched the big font “Acknowledgements” I was like WHAT!!!!
The author didn’t answer all my questions, but it was still a good story. I think the author wanted us to feel frightened and frustrated at the same time. It worked. GREAT JOB MICHELLE! I’m looking forward to reading the second book.

  1. I don't read scary books, or watch scary movies.

  2. I believe cats can ward off evil spirits. I lived in a house that we were having problems with children's laughter and running through the house, wooden floors. I got a cat and it all stopped.
