The greatest question, that has gone unanswered for 2 years, is who is Mara Dyer? Michelle Hodkin has said that all the clues for this epic finale are presented in The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. I wanted to give myself one more chance to guess the ending by rereading book 1 and 2 and this is made better by doing it with friends. I have come together with Stacee from Adventures of a Book Junkie, Rachel from Beauty and the Bookshelf, and Danielle from Love at First Page to host an epic readalong to prepare for Retribution of Mara Dyer! Together we are having discussions and Twitter chats to try and figure out who the hell Mara Dyer really is.We encourage you to join us and you may even win some books while you’re at it! Follow along on Twitter using #MarasRetribution.
Each book will have a two week period for reading. This gives you plenty of time to pick up book 1 from the library or your local bookstore! At the end of the two week period we will be having a Twitter chat and give away some books. Keep reading below for all the details…
Book 1: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
Mara Dyer believes life can’t get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
She believes there must be more to the accident she can’t remember that killed her friends and left her strangely unharmed.
She doesn’t believe that after everything she’s been through, she can fall in love.
