Summary: 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)
My Thoughts: Highly recommended for those who likes a dose of mystery and horror. This book is hauntingly beautiful. Great job Michelle Hodkin on your debut novel. I have always craved for such books but can’t seem to find one that really meets my expectations. There are close ones. I found my love for such books after reading the first book of the Pretty Little Liars series by Sara Shepard and can’t seem to find close substitutes to it. I’m so glad that I read this book and it ended with a cliffhanger. Gaaah, I can;t get enough of this book. The characters are wonderful especially Mara and Noel. The events are really haunting and I’m in love with Michelle’s writing. Its fits so perfectly with the plot. There were times where I was a confused as Mara, great job on that. Gaaah, the book’s just too good. I doubt I’ll be reading in the next few hours. Hopefully I can go back to reading
Rating: 5/5
1. The concept
   I’m obsessed with the idea of Mara being able to kill people just with the mere thought of it and of course strong feeling and how Noah, can heal people or be in some people’s shoes. (I don’t really know how to explain) The two of them is like yin and yang. There’s a balance and which is why they fit each other so perfectly. Will Mara find a way to control her “powers” ?

2. The ending
So stupid Jude is alive. WTS! He should go to hell. And now he’s going to haunt Mara but good thing Mara’s got Noah. I guess the guys are going to have a face-off in the next book. Juicy. And I wish I could say this in Jude’s face. You are no better than those guys who committed rape because they too can’t control their desires.

  1. This book has been on my shelf for awhile and I am always excited about it, though never get around to reading it. I didn't read the spoilers, thank you for the warning, but the rest of your review is awesome! Makes me more excited to get around to it!
