Mara Dyer once believed she could run from her past.
She can’t.
She used to think her problems were all in her head.
They aren’t.
She couldn’t imagine that after everything she’s been through, the boy she loves would still be keeping secrets.
She’s wrong.
In this gripping sequel to The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, the truth evolves and choices prove deadly. What will become of Mara Dyer next?

I wasn't sure how it could be possible, but The Evolution of Mara Dyer was even more intese and twisted than The Unbecoming.

Before reading: Huh, my book is signed with, "Who will you believe?" Interesting. Well I guess I'll go with Michelle Hodkin. 


The Evolution goes into Mara's family history as well as Noah's. I would think that I would be able to make some theories from that, but nope. Fret not people, even though new information was tossed in, there were a lot of questions answered from The Unbecoming. I never looked at anything the same through out this book. One moment I would feel like I was finally putting the story together, but then I would turn the page and all of my theories would get burned.

There were so many when I was wondering what just happened. At first I would try to make some sense out of it, but after a while I just rolled with it. Kind of. I started categorizing my reactions to those moments into the "my life after finishing" list.

My Life After Finishing The Evolution of Mara Dyer:
Day 1: Maybe I'll just leave my lamp on tonight.
Day 2: I'll just turn ALL the lights on in my house.
Day 3: Maybe I should just not clear the fog from my mirror after taking a shower.
Day 5: Has brother stand next to me while I brush my teeth.

One of the many things I loved about this book was Mara Dyer and Noah Shaw. They just work. It is how it is. They will forever be one of my favorite couples.

I loved every moment of The Evolution of Mara Dyer. Even though Mara Dyer is the reason I can't look into the mirror after I take a shower, I will read anything by Michelle Hodkin.
Overall: 5 out of 5


  1. Gahh this sounds so awesome! xD I can't believe this was even more mind-boggling than the first. I have my copy pre-ordered and I plan on devouring it as soon as I get it.
    Great review! ^__^

  2. Vy, this is a great review! I really need to get on this as SOON AS IT COMES OUT. Michelle is just so freaking TALENTED, my goodness. I'm a wimp, so we'll see how it goes after I finish this one. Brilliant review, I can't wait to see what you think of Book three when it comes out. :)

  3. Hahahah, this is the best review of this book I've read thus far. I'm so glad you liked it! Your life after TEOMD is cracks me up. I can't wait to get my hands on this book!

  4. This is one of the best sequels I've ever read.
    It was just amazing. If you loved the first one, you won't be able to put this one down.
    Recommend it to everyone.
