“You’re the girl who called me an asshole the first time we spoke. The girl who tried to pay for lunch even after you learned I have more money than God. You’re the girl that I–” Noah stopped, then took a step closer to me. “You are my girl.”
What is this book about?
Mara Dyer is suffering from memory loss after a heavy accident in an abandoned hospital. She was sneakily hanging out with her friends while the building collapsed and everyone, except for her, died. In one night she lost her boyfriend, best friend and a somewhat friend, but something doesn’t seem to add up. How was Mara mostly unharmed? She moves to a different city and a different school, to try and forget about it, but when supernatural-type things start happening around her, she starts to second guess the events of that night.
Why is it boring?
This is part 1 in a trilogy and although a mystery is set up, I found myself not caring all that much about it. Mara starts out the book stating that it isn’t actually her name and that her lawyer told her to pick another name, because of a supernatural killer being on the loose, and I figured that the book was going to throw me for a loop about who it would be. Any of the characters seemed creepy enough to be supernatural homicidal maniacs, so I was curious to see how this went along. But after the first quarter of the book, i got too annoyed with everyone to actually care. This is not a mystery novel, people. It’s romance.
Who would you recommend it to?
I’m going to make myself immensely unpopular by saying this, but I don’t like all these books masquerading as fantasy/mystery/paranormal-stuff, while they are actually romance novels. Apparently, I’m not a fan on those. This book reminded me of Shatter Me, but also The Mortal Instruments series in that aspect. The romance and the swooning has the upper hand over the mystery and bad-assery.
Why should I read it if it’s boring?!
