Review: Made for You

I first discovered Melissa Marr when someone recommended Graveminder. It was such a good book that I immediately looked into what other books she had written.  Made for You had really good reviews so I put it on my TBR.  It took me a while to get to it but it was certainly worth the wait.

Even though this book is classified as a YA novel, it has a much more mature feel to it.  While most chapters are from Eva's point of view as she recovers from a hit and run and realizes that she may be the target of a killer, a few chapters are told by her best friend Grace. The rest are told by "Judge" and these chapters tend to be quite disturbing.  I definitely felt some anxiety during some of the more violent parts of the story but I also couldn't take my eyes off the pages. Sometimes, I don't like books that are told by multiple characters but this was done really well and I think it was necessary to write the story this way for it to work. As the reader, I knew that the killer had to be someone Eva knew and I found myself making mental notes of all the possible clues in the earlier chapters.  I love a mystery where I can't predict the killer/ending from the start.  It makes the story so much more engaging. The identity of the killer in this book is revealed a few chapters before the conclusion and from that point on, the suspense level will not allow you to put the book down until the last sentence.

Great book, great ending.  If you want to read more about it, click here to go to the Amazon page.  Melissa Marr's web page can be found at
