Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.

"Suspense is good for people. It makes us stronger. This is why America loves Stephen King so much; he keeps us on the edge of our seats until it hurts." ~ pg. 79
Creepy, right? Realistic too, huh? You never know who is watching or reading your every move on social media. A Facebook friend, a Twitter baé or an Instagram follower could be stalking you, waiting for the perfect opportunity to insert themselves into your life. Joe and Beck are the literary examples of this.
"EVERYTHING peaks. It's just the nature of all life." ~ pg. 131
Such a simple title for a calculated character. Joe is a trip! And dare I say that I was rooting for him—the bad guy! I can't go into much deet without spoiling the story; just know that You was an okay dark read about a twisted character. Don't get excited—I am not comparing it to other REALLY GOOD psychological thrillers that shall not be named here. In fact, it was not a page-turner at all but every time I put it down, I wondered what Joe's next move would be. Add it to your TBR piles now that the hype has died down from its 2014 release. I wouldn't be surprised if it is adapted to the big screen.
Now excuse me while I crack open the advance readers' copy of the sequel Hidden Bodies.
