Hidden Bodies by Caroline Kepnes

Happy Pub Day to Caroline Kepnes’ “Hidden Bodies”!

One of my favorite characters, Joe Goldberg, returns today, in “Hidden Bodies”, the sequel to Caroline’s smashing debut “YOU”.

In HB we find Joe going on an adventure, he decides to move to California (after a girl of course). There, he finds himself among a bunch of characters in a strange world that is anything but what he is used to. Does he find the girl? (Like I’m going to tell you!)

So, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy today!

“Hidden Bodies” by Caroline Kepnes

For my first Thursday Reads book, I chose a character that I LOVE, that I probably should’t, but I do. His name is Joe Goldberg.

“Hidden Bodies” is the sequel to Caroline’s 2014 smash hit “YOU”.

Joe runs a bookstore. Joe is a stalker. What else is Joe? You have to read “YOU” to find out. He might be the bad guy, but I am rooting for him.

In “Hidden Bodies” we find Joe making changes. For the good? Maybe. YOU’ll just have to read it to find out.

I was very fortunate enough to receive an ARC. “Hidden Bodies” will be published on February 23, 2016. And I HIGHLY recommend it.

Blogmas 12, 2015

Wow, already the 12th day of December. Seriously, even though Christmas is just under 2 weeks away, 2 days will pass and BOOM, it’ll be Christmas.

Today I went to an annual Christmas party that is hosted by some family friends (who I pretty much consider family). So tonight, I don’t have a movie pick, but I’m just going to be tuning into the Hallmark Channel, ABC Family, Lifetime, and flipping around channels for any Christmas movies on.

Not sure how late I will be staying up, I am tired, but at the same time I’m not. So who knows.

And, I do need to get some reading in. Yesterday I received an ARC of “Hidden Bodies” by Caroline Kepnes (sequel to “YOU”) and I can’t wait to dive right back into it. I need to read more chapters. I only managed 3 chapters yesterday. (I wasn’t expecting to receive the copy up until last week, and I was really hoping after the holidays, that February would hurry – BUT NOW I GET MORE JOE!!!!!!!!! AND I DON’T HAVE TO WAIT!!!!!!!)

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend and getting drunk on eggnog!!!

 

YOU by Caroline Kepnes

YOU by Caroline Kepnes is my #1 book pick for the Fall!!

I loaned my copy out so I couldn’t take a picture of it, but I am absolutely in love with this cover. The above image is the majority of it.

This isn’t necessarily a book review (like before, I said I don’t do those) but I highly recommend it! HIGHLY!!

YOU comes out next Tuesday (September 30th). It is published by my favorite (aka the best in the business) Emily Bestler Books / Atria / Simon & Schuster. I was lucky enough to receive a copy, but I will still be purchasing a copy (already pre-ordered it) because that is how I roll. It is a novel of dark obsession (it says so right on the cover). It’s an amazing thriller. Very unique. And I couldn’t put it down. Since the promotion of it months ago, I’ve been really excited for YOU. And I am now a Caroline Kepnes fan.


Here’s the blurb for the book:

Love hurts…

When aspiring writer Guinevere Beck strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe works, he’s instantly smitten. Beck is everything Joe has ever wanted: She’s gorgeous, tough, razor-smart, and as sexy as his wildest dreams.

Beck doesn’t know it yet, but she’s perfect for him, and soon she can’t resist her feelings for a guy who seems custom made for her. But there’s more to Joe than Beck realizes, and much more to Beck than her oh-so-perfect façade. Their mutual obsession quickly spirals into a whirlwind of deadly consequences . . .

A chilling account of unrelenting passion, Caroline Kepnes’s You is a perversely romantic thriller that’s more dangerously clever than any you’ve read before.


While it’s not a secret that I’m into anything writer, bookstore, or library related (in books and movies); the fact that Joe is a bookstore owner is a big reason that drew me to YOU, and that fabulous cover. But, from the very first lines, this book is written so differently from anything else that I have read, and I loved it!

Even though Joe is….well Joe (when you read it you’ll understand what I mean). I am drawn to him. He has a hold on me. I want to be his best friend. I want to be his lover. I know I should think one way of him, yet, I thin another. I relate to him (not is all aspects, of course). And I am #TeamJoe.

So, if you plan on reading one book this fall, make it YOU. YOU won’t regret it.
