I loved Melissa Marr's Wicked Lovely series and Carnival of Souls (a series she isn't finishing for reasons I'm unclear on) so I was eager to check out her latest YA offering. If you like thrillers that aren't supernatural or overly scary for your October reading, this is a good one!
Made for You is about Eve a young privileged and popular girl. She has a stalker, but she's unaware of it until he attempts to take her life. As she's recovered from the attack, she realizes that when she touches people, she senses how they will die. This troubles her, but also begins to give her clues into her stalker and she quickly realizes those she loves might be in danger. She begins to piece things together in order to try stop her stalker...but can she figure out who it is in time?
This is a fairly quick paced read, with plenty of intrigue. I liked the intrigue of her sensing people's deaths, especially since it wasn't always tied to her own predicament...the reality of death and things ending became a sort of burden to her. I also liked this twist because it presented questions about how playing with knowledge of future events can affect and impact the future.
It's not all doom and gloom! There is a love story and some really nice family moments, too. Plus, I love Melissa Marr for including a shout-out to Sara Zarr's books!
I read an egalley that was provided to me by the publisher. Recommended!
