The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1)The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a very tricky book to rate/review. It was going so strong, it was interesting, captured my attention. Creepy and head scratching all at the sametime. But then it just took on a whole new direction. A whole new feel,it started to lose me. The creepy factor disappeared. The head scatching of 'hmm I wonder' changed to 'hmm what?' And not in a good way.

I was expecting something else the whole time reading it. The book seemed like it was going to be something else but a lass twas not. I'll read the next book though hopefully this was just a dip in the road and not a gaping pot hole with the storyline.

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

Uglies (Uglies, #1)Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A little meh for me at the start, couldn't get into to it but then bam it took ahold.

From birth until you are 16 years of age you look the way you are meant to, ugly as they call it. Then sweet sixteen roles around and you are taken away and made "pretty", in otherwords you are made to be like everyone else. Not only are you physically beautiful but mentally your mind is changed, you've "grown-up".

Fantastic story, brilliant even.
