Book Monday: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
Holy Minolo Blahnik you guys! This book freaked me out so bad, I couldn't sleep well for several nights. I mean, I thought I was seeing someone standing in my door frame in the middle of the night. I thought I was hearing footsteps downstairs. I could have swore I felt a chill sweep through the room (more than once). I had dreams of cracked-in skulls and stolen children.
But this is the thing: I loved it. (In a love-hate kind of way).
Was it too horrifying? Maybe.
Is it ever cool to use Ouija Boards in fiction, or otherwise? Debatable.
Is killing for good reasons okay? Very interesting!
All I know is that I couldn't put it down. Even at 3 a.m. when the sounds in the garage sounded an awful lot like caged souls trying to escape...I kept reading.
Did you read it? Did you like it? And more importantly, was it too dark?
