Hello! This has been a though week for me. Adjusting university, and dealing with the worst study and reading hangover of all times. So, no further through.
I read the Mara Dyer trilogy by Michelle Hodking. Starting with the Unbecoming of Mara Dyer.
Which starts with obviously the main character named Mara Dyer who’s a sixteen year old girl dealing with the fact her friends and boyfriend died on an accident and she was the only one to survive, living with the guilt of not being able to remember a thing about it. Also to get away from those demons her family accepts her idea to move to Miami, there she meets this enigmatic hot guy named Noah Shaw, who immediately notices her and beings the courting, while her new Bff warns her not to fall for him, or she’ll be hurt just the others before her. She tries until she doesn’t want to do it anymore as she begins remembering pieces of that tragic night realising that most of her trauma and posttraumatic stress is only guiding her to her actual deadly powers. But she’s not the only one ’cause her new love Noah, also has some secrets of his own involving the fact that Mara might not be crazy after all.
This book ends with Mara finding out some things on her own, she kills with her wishes and what happened that night, is still haunting her ’cause he’s not dead. So you can imagine how crazy things were for me, but for some outrageous reason I trust Mara’s POV and didn’t thought she was clinically insane.
Ps: Jamie was so much fun! But the romance was so so much lovely.
The second book was The Evolution of Mara Dyer.
It starts with poor unstable Mara waking up on a hospital with some straps on her arms to protect her from any harm she can do to herself. Nobody believes she saw Jude, but Noah and together they start unleashing the truth about her origins and about the doctors that convince her family she’s insane and needs to be locked. Both discover that her grandmother was just like her, and she’s gaining some of her memories; but also the fact that Jude has being tormenting her with the help of the staff in charge of her and the other ‘crazy’ kids. Besides Jamie and Stella being powerful as well, but taken for an experiment thanks to Dr. Suzanne, without the knowledge of the parents and the outside world.
This ends with Mara ‘killing’ Jude, after he has murdered Phoebe, Adam, little Megan, and Noah is probably dead according to what the Dr. tells her, but Mara knows inside her that no matter what he’s not.
PS: God! I hated Phoebe!
And the last one was the Retribution of Mara Dyer.
So bittersweet. It has been some days, since she’s being captured, tortured and lied to by the staff with no information of her current status thanks to the drugs they are giving her. Until Jude helps her by releasing Stella and Jamie as they try to find a way to stop the corporation and unleash their secrets, besides saving Noah with some intended kills by Mara. Together the trio, travels to New York, only to find that the truth they desperately wanted, wasn’t what they expected. And we also get to know even more the first Mara, the contemporary’s late grandmother and her sorrows through this life.
No need to say this was so BITTERSWEET, with the truths that she’s actually his kryptonite and their ancestors conecction and wishes for them (Mara and Noah). But their love is stronger than the sad stories and future perspectives, that their painful past and the tormenting revelations. They both, free each other, and their choice is the same for all the days they live.
See y’all on two days, to review the Scorch Trials movie adaptation.!
