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

My thoughts: 


When I read the first book, I was pretty disappointed. Everyone kept going on and on about how “scary” and “creepy” the books were, and I didn’t find anything creepy about the first book. I love horror, so the creepiness felt a little flat for me. However, this book really stepped up on the creepy/scary factor. I have no words to describe my emotions right now. Honestly, this book was AMAZING! I was so confused, so creeped out and I just didn’t know what to think about anything. The entire time I had no idea if I could really trust Mara and her thoughts. I was just waiting for her to wake up at some asylum and find out everything was in her head. But that didn’t happen.

So many unanswered questions that I am dying to know. Hopefully the third book covers it, but I’m so impatient, I need to know now! Her grandma, oh my god whats up with those flashbacks in India? Was it really her grandma or Mara in a past life? What went on between her grandma and Noah’s real mom? And what about all that crazy shit with Jude and the others that apparently possess their own powers? I could go on and on about all the million questions that I have, but I’ll just get super frustrated all over again.

Oh Noah. I refuse to believe that he died. REFUSE. He can’t he can’t. I’m just waiting for his grand debut in the final book because I’ll be devastated if he dies and Jude lives. Ugh, I just wanted to go into this book and smack the crap out of her family members and make them believe Mara. I know that to them she just sounds crazy, and they mean well, but it hurt my heart knowing the truth while her family just stayed in the dark.

And can we talk about Dr. Kells? There’s something much more to her, and I have a feeling that Dr. Kells isn’t even her real name, I wouldn’t be surprised if she wasn’t even a real doctor. I feel like she might have powers herself, maybe she knew Mara’s grandma and Noah’s mom, maybe it was a group or cult of some kind. I’m just dying to pick up the third book, but at the same time I don’t want to burn out.

This book just tugged at my emotions and I just hope everything will be okay in the end. And I just need some goddamn answers.

Have you read this book, if so, did you like it or dislike it ? Let me know!

Thanks for reading ❤
