    “Tell me what you see. Because I don't know what's real and what isn't or what's new or different and I can't trust myself, but I trust you.” I am confused. And scared terrified. I am angry. I am freaked out. I am unconditionally and irrevocably in love with this series. And it hurts. “You will love him to ruins.” When a book starts with this line, you know that things are going to get ugly. In The Evolution of Mara Dyer Mara's family ...

    I should probably write a real review for this. Maybe I will, when my head isn't reeling.The Evolution is everything that The Unbecoming was and more. Romantic, perfectly paced, repeatedly punching you in the gut... I actually had to take a bunch of breaks and purge to someone during the last 100 pages because everything was becoming so intense and scary and twisted. It's 10 times worse than The Unbecoming, and it's awesome.It also raised my stan...

    I just finished the book and I’m totally freaking out and silently screaming obscene phrases at the air because man, that twist, that ending (or the lack of it), as picked up from the book, is batshit crazy. I’m not sure if I should applaud it or curse it. I’m not sure whether to be impressed or upset by the revelations and I guess that’s when you can say a book is really good- when it totally messes up with your head. Up to now, my heart...

    Pre-review:I'm at page. 255 and I want to list out a few things I wish Michelle Hodkin would write in the remaining part of The Evolution of Mara Dyer:(1) Mara is in fact crazy.(2) Jude, Mara's ex-boyfriend and would-be-rapist, is in fact dead.(3)Whenever Mara thinks she's seeing Jude, it's only her seeing her imaginary stalker.(4) Every single spooky event that has taken place in the book is either Mara's own handiwork or they taken place only i...

    This book was BANANAS!!

    I think my brain melted. Like, actually, that is my brain, on the floor, in a puddle of what even. JUST IN CASE YOU WERE CURIOUS AS TO MY REACTION TO THIS BOOK. Okay...deeeep breaths. I did love it, but I had several "WHAT EVEN THE HECK" moments that confused me too much. Also this book is too huge. Way too huge. It dribbles on so much in the middle it was actually irritating??? Which is a shame because book 1 was perfection. I have yet to meet a...

    Just one word: AMAZING I can not stop thinking about what just happened......This book as the first has left me wondering many things and my head is a mess! unexpected information ... WOW !!I am pleasantly surprised honestly had my doubts about whether this book could overcome the first and really did with honors!Michelle God! , I wish to have only a quarter of the talent that this woman possesses. It has become one of my favorite writers with on...

    The unfortunate byproduct of being a high school senior is that I don't have much time to read. Not as much as I used to, anyway. Before, I was able to finish a book in less than a week, and now, quite frankly, I'm lucky if I make it through half of the book in that time.This book took me three days to finish.Three days.GUYS. THREE DAYS.Insanity. I don't even remember the last time I finished a book so quickly.So here's how it all went down....Me...

    4.5 starsI found this one to be a bit slow at times but it did definitely deliver as far as the creepy twisted plot. I love trying to figure out what's going on. Also really love all the characters but sometimes I just got so frustrated wanting people to believe Mara!!!

    NO. NO NO NO. NO.

    I have no comments whatsoever bc I just refuse to accept all of that. I'm hurting and waiting for the last one.

    “I’m afraid– I’m afraid I’m losing control.” I’m afraid I’m losing myself. The idea was a splinter in my mind. Always there, always stinging, even when I wasn’t conscious of it. Even when I wasn’t thinking about it. What did I just read? My emotions are all over the place. Just when I thought I was getting answers, Michelle Hodkin slams me over the head with some grade A mindf*ckery. But who the hell am I fooling? I loved ev...

    I really wasn't expecting this to be better than the first book!! The action was perfect, the romance great, the side characters amazing, the plot twists perfectly done.I think the first book was just a little too slow for me, not enough of the paranormal aspect...but now I feel it was appropriate because we needed the intro and back story...but everything about book 2 was just amazing and captivating.

    “I’ll walk forever with stories inside me that the people I love the most can never hear.” O.M.G.I meanTHIS BOOK IS AWESOME!I can't even start putting into words my feelings at the moment I finished this book. This woman was able to mess with my mind. It made me surprised, confused, angry, sad, amused... I DON'T KNOW!!!Basically this girl cannot have a single day in peace. Even when she tries to tell the true that is taking her sleep away, ...

    Well wasn't this a pleasant surprise! After being hugely disappointed with the way the first book turned from fabulously creepy to annoyingly romancy, I did not hold very high hopes for its sequel--even though I was (obviously) curious enough by the ending to still be looking forward to it. As you can tell, I had a very up and down relationship with that book. Fortunately, this sequel rocked it way harder than I could have hoped for!From terrifyi...

    Have you ever seen the movie The Strangers? If so, do you remember that one scene where the woman was in the foreground of her house, panicking, and in the background you see one of the white-masked strangers inside her house, watching her? Such a simple and subtle scene, that was. There was no music, no big bang to draw your attention to the stranger - nothing. Just complete and utter silence, aside from the sound of the woman taking short, pani...

    Final rating: 3.5/5 stars This was the boy I loved. A little bit messy. A little bit ruined. A beautiful disaster.Just like me. The last 20% were so worthy of 3.5 STARS. I don't know if it is a standard for Michelle Hodkin or if i always get bored until i reach 70% of the book? Because it is the deal with me and Mara Dyer series. But, this time, i got some answers. But! I got confused as hell! And i loved that! Can you imagine? I actually lov...

    Beautiful Mara Amitra Dyer Noah Elliot Simon Shaw. Whoa, all the stars in the sky for this book 🖤🌌The entire story was stunning, heart wrenching, captivating, unique, beautiful and I kinda ran outta words.. it's that amazing. Mara and Noah are fascinating and their whole relationship is perfectly imperfect. Noah is my sarcastic, caring/uncaring, witty, British angel lol. "This was the boy I loved. A little bit messy. A little bit ruined. A...

    THE SCIENTIFIC THEORY: aka I’ve scoured the net, and yet none have mentioned the following theory pertaining to The Retribution of Mara Dyer (edited to include A Clockwork Orange--found at the bottom.) (October: edited to include the Daniel Myer theory) This all links back to Biotechnology. Otherwise known as David Shaw, Noah Shaw’s father. Noah’s father owns a megacorporation that all stems from research in biotechnology. According to the...

    3.75 starsThe Evolution of Mara Dyer is the second installment in Mara Dyer series. This book will show you that madness is real. I quite enjoyed the book more than The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. Likewise, the sequel is full of thrills and the author's done a good job with her vague narrative. If this situation is in the other books, I will loath it and never hesitate to give it just one star. But when obscurity appears in this book, it fits perfec...

    *4.25 ENTRANCED STARS* “This was the boy I loved. A little bit messy. A little bit ruined. A beautiful disaster. Just like me.” AGAIN WITH THAT CLIFFHANGER ENDING!! I CANNOT HANDLE IT.If I don’t manage to get my hands on the last book soon, it’s gonna be my ass in a mental hospital and not Mara’s!I really easily tend to forget what happened in books I’ve read a long time ago.It’s been a year and a half since I’ve read the first...
  • shre ♡
    The Evolution of Mara Dyer was an absolutely thrilling sequel to the brain-wracking first novel in the series. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer was enchanting and exciting, but this one was ADDICTING. There are more twists and turns and exciting parts in this book then there are on a roller-coaster ride. One thing is for sure, once readers put this one down, they'll definitely need some time before picking up any other book.Mara in this book, was let'...
