“Thinking something does not make it true. Wanting something does not make it real.”
“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 who risked her ass to save a dying dog, who makes my chest ache whether you’re wearing green silk or ripped jeans. You’re the girl that I–” Noah stopped, then took a step closer to me. “You are my girl.”

Since I’m featuring The Becoming of Noah Shaw as my Waiting For Wednesday, it only seems fitting that this week’s Throw Back Thursday would be the book that started it all, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. It’s been years since I’ve read this book, but I can tell you this, it is still one of the most unique reads I’ve ever gotten my hands on.

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.
