Hidden Bodies by Caroline Kepnes Book Review

Book Description (via Goodreads): Joe Goldberg is no stranger to hiding bodies. In the past ten years, this thirty-something has buried four of them, collateral damage in his quest for love. Now he’s heading west to Los Angeles, the city of second chances, determined to put his past behind him. In Hollywood, Joe blends in effortlessly with the other young upstarts. He eats guac, works in a bookstore, and flirts with a journalist neighbor. But while others seem fixated on their own reflections, Joe can’t stop looking over his shoulder. The problem with hidden bodies is that they don’t always stay that way. They re-emerge, like dark thoughts, multiplying and threatening to destroy what Joe wants most: true love. And when he finds it in a darkened room in Soho House, he’s more desperate than ever to keep his secrets buried. He doesn’t want to hurt his new girlfriend- he wants to be with her forever. But if she ever finds out what he’s done, he may not have a choice…

You by Caroline Kepnes Book Review

Book Description (via Goodreads): 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 orchestrated a series of events to ensure Beck find 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.

I have been absent and I apologise…

Good morning/afternoon/evening my bookworms,

I can only apologise for my lack of being on my book(ish) platforms. It’s been a long couple of months an I’ve taken a break from reading as much or as often as I normally would and blogging. This is all down to finally moving out with my parter! We moved out officially on 3rd May 2019 and have been trying to find our footing since. I definitely feel a lot more settled than I was in May but still plodding and May still be doing so for a while longe. However, in my time being in our new home I have finished two books which I will review and publish within this week.

So watch this space, as I’m coming back …. hopefully more frequently than I have been.

I hope you’ve all been well and I look forward to reading your posts and publishing my book reviews again!

Happy reading,

Claire 📚
