Title: "Made For You"
Author: Melissa Marr
Publication Date: September 1st 2014
Let me start of by saying that this is one hell of an enthralling book. It was so twisted and crazy. Just when I thought I had it all figured out, something happened and I was like "but wait...". And i just had to keep on reading. Next thing you know, it's 4:00 am and I stop to ask myself "What am I doing with my life?" Reading awesome books is what! So I just smile and continue reading.
I really really enjoyed this book. More than I thought I would, actually. I was pulled in from the very beginning. And remained very much engrossed in the story until the very last page. I liked how we start getting some action from the start and that the mystery was built early into the book so that you all through-out you keep wanting to know more and to find out who the killer is.
While it was probably the creepiest aspect of the book, I loved how some of the chapters were in the killer's point of view. It was truly captivating to actually get an insight into his/her (trying to be vague here- don't want to spoil anything) mind and all the psychotic and obsessive things inside it. Also, the multiple points of view really worked in this book. Which is something that's either a hit or a miss. They were easy to distinguish so you can't get confused or lost.
As for the writing, I found it to be great overall. It was very easy, very clear to read. It really grabbed my attention and kept me intrigued. Regardless of the plot being very gruesome. If you like that kind of stuff (like me) then you'll definitely like this book. Not only was the writing good, but the characters were great. Each and every one was very complex and concrete. Very substantial to the story and interesting to read about. Particularly the main character who, after her accident, can see the way in which people are going to die. I mean that's just crazy! And awesome. Definitely awesome. I also appreciate the fact that she wasn't one of those whiny/annoying lead female characters.
The only thing I didn't really like was the romance in this book. I wasn't the biggest fan of it, but it wasn't that bad either. Perhaps it could have been a little bit better. Other than that I really enjoyed this chilling/thrilling read. It was extremely well-written, shocking, and gripping.
If you like creepy and thrilling books, check this one out!
4/ 5 stars!
