Book Blog- THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER by Michelle Hodkin

As Halloween approaches, we are sharing our scary October reads. THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER is atmospheric, mysterious, and dark, but still manages to be fun and romantic.  That's a feat!  First take a look at the gorgeous cover:

I know!  V says the cover is even more beautiful in real life, that it's like velvet.  I ordered the e-book, but I'm tempted to buy the hardcover too, just so I can pet it from time to time.

This is a hard book to talk about without getting too spoilery.  Mara is coming to terms with a horrific accident that killed her boyfriend, his sister and Mara's own best friend.  Mara survived, but she doesn't remember what she and her friends were doing in the abandoned asylum (I know! Creeped out already, huh?) the night it collapsed.  As she starts to piece together the events that led to the collapse, she starts to experience disturbing hallucinations.  Is Mara suffering from PTSD or are her visions symptoms of something even more sinister?  Hodkin combines elements of horror, romance and psychological thriller to create a story that will keep you turning the page long into the night.  Just be sure to have a flashlight handy.  


Yes, gorgeous cover!

It does sound good, though, especially with the creepy asylum factor - very nice touch.
