Murder, Love, Teenagers…

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.

Goodreads Description

The Unbecoming Mara Dyer was a quick and fun read. It’s filled with murder and macabre and is the perfect book for people who love creepy stories mixed with twisted romance. I’m a huge fan of creepy books, but to be honest, this book wasn’t what I was expecting. While it is scary, it focused more on the romance, and that’s what annoyed me more than anything. Sure, it is a paranormal romance, but I’m not a huge fan of perfectly-gorgeous-hawt dudes and insta-love; however, I loved Mara’s voice and her feisty attitude. Plus, the book ends on a cliffhanger that’s just going to leave you DYING to read the next book. So, it was good.

Could it be adapted to film/television? This book would make a great movie. Something like a teen horror flick, just without the screaming cheerleaders and clueless jocks. While I was reading it, I couldn’t help but imagine how great it’d look on-screen. Murder+Romance+Paranormal = fun summer flick.

I think The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer could have a good chance of making its way into Hollywood soon.
