You by Caroline Kepnes Review!


When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card.

There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting.

As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way—even if it means murder.

What did I just read!!!! This novel is so unique and different from anything I have ever read before, that I was sucked into the story even more than normal.

This novel completely consumed me!! Joe captivated me and Beck intrigued me. Despite the fact that I wasn't a huge fan of Beck, but the saving of her for me was the "relationship" with Joe! He was so twisted and rather creepy, but that made me like him even more!!!

“You are a monster, deathly, solipsistic to the bone
and you’re blasphemous because all you want is YOU!"

This novel was paced perfectly! There was never one moment where I got bored or wanted to put the book down. Everything transitioned beautifully from one scene to the next, kept you guessing as to what was going to happen, and made you want more all the way up until the end and after!

"The internet was designed with love in mind.It gave me so much more of you."

I cannot get enough of these characters, plot and this wonderful author!!! I can't wait to read Hidden Bodies and see where the twists and turns go next!!

4.5/5 Stars!!

P.S: In the words of Caroline Kepnes:
“The problem with books is that they end.”
