This book was pretty good. I'm always a fan of the sort of murder mystery type books in anyway. I do feel like that the identity of the killer could have been introduced later in the book than in the sort of middle. Eva and Nate were one of the best parts about it. I really enjoyed their romance even after the 4 months things. I like this book but I don't love. I read Some Boys before I read this story and I felt like Made for You could have done a better job. Never the less it was still a good book to read

I enjoyed the story. It was a quick, easy, interesting read. Will read book two if there is one. hope more things are explained in it if it is a series. How did Eva get these powers? Why did Nate stop talking to her before? at the ending ( 4 months later) how was her face healing? I liked the story and the characters but I didn't love them ( except maybe for Nate) they needed a little more backstory/flushing out, and a few things explained better. Hopefully in book two..,😊

I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough—I was rushing through this book like my life depended on it. It’s a great thriller and I loved this book a lot, but there are also some things I’d like to get a clearer sense of. A lot of things weren’t explained very well, and that can sometimes cause a hindrance when a reader is trying to like the book.

I love the fact that are multiple POV’s in this book. The story is told from Eva’s, her best friend’s, and the killer’s perspective, and I find that to be very interesting. You get a feel for the villain and know why he is doing something, and what’s his/her motivation.

The characters in this book are less developed than those in any other novel, but this is a fast-paced, suspense novel, so that is understandable. Each and everyone is a suspect, and that makes the chase even harder, and better. I liked Eva, but wasn’t particularly fond of her as she did whine a few times. Her love interest, Nate, was awesome, but again, it wasn’t explained why he stopped talking to her.

One thing I didn’t get about this book is Eva’s brand new death-prediction powers. They did go very well with the whole concept of finding the stalker-killer, but there was no light on how she got them, or why. Although this sort of insta-power thing is sort of common in books, I think there should be an actual explanation of it. Otherwise, it’s basically a prop to help the author get to the end of the story.

There isn’t much I can say without spoiling the book, so I will end this here. This is quite possibly my favourite psychological thriller book so far, and I really loved this book. I can’t find any reasons for not liking this book, except maybe some people will have trouble bonding with the characters. Nevertheless, I think once you get into it, this book can be a great read.


Book Theme Song

Take Me to Church by Hozier

I believe this song really depicts the killer’s relationship and feelings towards Eva. You’ll understand after reading this book why I chose this specific song to portray the novel. No spoilers.

My Rating: ★★★★ 4 stars

Often you find good books with really stupid covers. This was, unfortunately, the opposite: beautiful cover, blah book.
