But when her classmates and acquaintances start being murdered, she realizes 3. This review appears on Check it out for more reviews! Even more chilling is the fact that since waking up she seems to have Made For You was creepy as heck! While in the hospital trying to recover she rekindles her friendship with her childhood friend Nate. I have enough teenage drama in my real life that I don't need to be reading about it also. Marr is a bit too successful in writing from the perspective of a serial killer. Good thing her old bestfriend aka new romance is always at her side.
Every single teen character in this book seems to be sexually active — Nate, Judge, Eva and Grace included and I was pretty uncomfortable with some of the implications about what the characters did. I have to admit in a huge baby. Made for You was a fast paced thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat! And let me tell you, this one definitely have me the chills. Thanks to HarperCollins for the review copy! If you're looking for a layered and wholly original story does that even exist? She and I really clicked. Eva's plan to save Grace was stupid, and the fact that it all worked out was even stupider. Perhaps it was just me, it just all felt flat to me.
I think this premise is extremely original. There is tension, a ton of different suspects, and decent attempts at creating red herrings. Grace, the best friend, could have been a better protagonist. But I thought his chapters were very interesting. Like she could be talking to him at any moment! They all attend a high school that sort of resembles Gossip Girl with Eva being the queen bee yes I was a total Gossip Girl fan, don't judge Anyway, one day Eva is walking home and gets hit by a car and almost killed. The guy she used to date or one of her closet friends? This is the first book by Melissa Marr I've picked up in a while, and I happened upon it when I'd put in for the book as a hold at my local library.
In Made For You, she proved that she could create a well-written setting and characters. All the right friends in all the right places Can you feel all the love? Soon it becomes apparent that someone is fixated on Eva as more and more of her classmates turn up dead. Pls note, if you are my family or dearest friends, feel free to remind me to do so. And now she wonders who could have tried to kill her! She had to deal with the physical and emotional trauma of the original incident. It's how I can save Eva. These paranormal elements felt, more than anything, like a plot convenience to keep the plot moving at a break-neck pace. Notable Scene: I drive past her house as I have for months, not so often that anyone would notice, but frequently enough to keep myself calm.
She can foresee people's death! Three years later, I'm not nearly as impressed. SixFour Media helps companies and individuals do their best work, promote it well and reach the people that they need in order to be successful. Which is a very good thing because there's a mystery that we're trying to solve. And I'm definitely in the mood for that. Samantha was new to me. I hadn't read anything by this author before, but now I will definitely check out more of Marr's books. It's freaky and terrifying and exceptionally well written and I'm totally a fan of Melissa Marr now.
This was really creepy and made me so bad to learn who he was!!! It's mostly sheer curiosity that compelled me to keep reading the book. . I swooned ; I loved the setting and how Marr depicted the southern town of Jessup. I remember predicting it the first time, and I can now say the murder mystery is incredibly obvious. If you are a young adult thriller fan you are in for a real treat with Made for You! These past days while she was in the hospital, I had to pretend that she was inside, that there was a chance she could come to the window. However, I personally was annoyed by them because there was never any scientific or logical explanation as to why she got these powers; and, being a murder mystery, it felt a bit out of place as well.
While she is recovering, everyone she knows are starting to literally drop dead and now she must use her newly acquired ability to keep all of her friends alive and to find her obsessed killer, stalker. The reader knows what is going on in the killer's mind, but the killer's identity is not revealed. And while I can't quite say that Melissa Marr's Made for You quite lived up to those high expectations, I did appreciate what it had to offer. I was hooked from the beginning! There was also a romance. Grace's perspective was good as an offset perspective to show a contrast to Eva's findings and for certain later events in the novel, but she wasn't really as much of a feature compared to Judge's character.
The Made For You was a pleasant surprise. Initial reaction: Parts of this book that I thought were fine, while others didn't sit well with me at all. Yeah you read that right. The climax of the novel was really the part that killed some of the more thrilling events for me because Eva engaged in actions that were completely in contrast to what her visions stated for little to no reason. Waking up in the hospital, cut and broken, she has no idea who would do this to her.
