Thoughts by Leisha: Five Stars!
I LOVED this book. I can honestly say that this has become one of my favorite books of all time. ‘You’ centers around Joe Goldberg who works at a bookstore in NYC, which is where he meets Guinevere Beck or just Beck as her friends call her. Beck is an aspiring writer and lives and breathes social media. I don’t want to say too much more and spoil anything about this book – it’s just THAT good. One of the things I really enjoy about this book is that it’s told from Joe’s POV, which makes it deliciously creepy. You feel like you’re right next to him, watching and listening to everything going on and everything’s he’s doing.
There is another book after this one titled ‘Hidden Bodies’ but I HIGHLY recommend reading ‘You’ first. I also own the Audible version. As a matter of fact, I joined Audible just to get this book! It’s most definitely a must-read!
More about You:
“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.”
