Hey guys! Before I start…wow, it’s been such a long time since I’ve sat down, a little less stressed and not in a hurry, to write a blog post. My app, as I’ve said before, isn’t working properly and it just felt so good to be able to go through my feed and see all of the posts even if I couldn’t read all of them.
I’ve missed reading so much. I haven’t read a full book in over 6 or so weeks, and I haven’t avidly read in like…over a year. Sitting down and going through my feed made me realize how much I miss it, and the sad part is, I probably won’t be able to for a while. Regardless, I wanted to start a series of posts until Halloween in which I feature a specific book I’ve read/want to read that’s creepy, scary, or Halloween related.
I read the Mara Dyer series over three years ago, back when I was in 8th grade, and I naturally loved it. I recognize now that there are lots of flaws and points that aren’t that well written, but, well, I still love the books. I remember them as being addicting, intriguing, and slightly creepy but not necessarily horror–and I love that creep factor.
When Michelle Hodkin announced that she would be writing a spin-off trilogy, then, I was naturally SUPER excited, and I still am. I’ve been counting down for the release for years now–and it’s finally getting closer. The Becoming of Noah Shaw is going to be released November 7th, and guys. I can’t wait. I can’t wait to go back into this world and be immersed in a story with Mara and Noah. I miss these characters so much and that’s why I just HAD to do my first shout-out on this series/book.
Also, I love all the covers so much, but this one especially. (I also love the fact that this new trilogy seems to be the opposite of the first one…The Unbecoming vs the Becoming, the fire/ashes instead of the water…all so cleverly designed.)
If you don’t know, the Mara Dyer trilogy is like the book version of crack. I’m serious. Once you start reading, you can’t stop. There are some cringy parts, but the overall enjoyment is worth it. Plot twists, romance, etc. And it will definitely get you in the mood for Halloween.
Are you excited for this book to come out as much as I am? Let’s discuss!
I hope you guys enjoyed this shortish post, and will keep following for my next shout-out.
