[ARC Review] The Becoming of Noah Shaw by Michelle Hodkin


In the first book of the Shaw Confessions, the companion series to the New York Times bestselling Mara Dyer novels, old skeletons are laid bare and new promises prove deadly. This is what happens after happily ever after.

Everyone thinks seventeen-year-old Noah Shaw has the world on a string.

They’re wrong.

Mara Dyer is the only one he trusts with his secrets and his future.

He shouldn’t.

And both are scared that uncovering the truth about themselves will force them apart.

They’re right


TW: self harm, suicide (in this book)

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer... The Becoming of Noah Shaw.. am I the only one screaming about this or freaking out???!!


I'm so happy that Noah and Mara are back in my life. I loved reading this book just for them. But then I realized that not much happened. There is the after math from the Mara Dyer Trilogy (you have to read the trilogy to understand this book) but not much happens till the end.  

Noah, Mara, Jamie and other familiar faces try to discover why they have these "powers" and how many of them are out there. Noah tries to come to terms that Mara might not be the same girl he meet. Mara knows she has changed, as a result of what happened in The Retribution of Mara Dyer. Their powers are changing them, for better and for worse. And it's a matter of time before the changes can't be reversed. 

I just wish more things happened. I think this is just a set up for the things to happen in the later novels. It was interesting reading this story from Noah's point of view. You discover that Noah isn't as confident/cool as he holds himself but he has fears and regrets. He is trying to survive along with Mara in discovering who they really are and what their abilities truly mean. 

Overall I would give The Becoming of Noah Shaw 4 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

 Thank you soo much Simon & Schuster for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review.
