Book: You
Series: You #1
Author: Caroline Kepnes

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.-Goodreads

Review:  'You' is a great book about horrible people. Seriously, every character is pretty awful. Beck is the object of Joe's obsession and although you can clearly see where this story is heading, it's a fun, twisty, creepy ride. Kepnes is such a talented writer she made me forget Joe is a sociopath/murderer and I found myself actually agreeing with some of his inner thoughts (especially about IKEA). Great job! (very graphic)

Grade: 4.4/5
