Made For You by Melissa Marr was a big "trend" book in 2014. It had all the elements for hype - suspense, a serial killer, and a touch of contemporary it did deliver on some parts. It was a good book, but it wasn't memorable or super thrilling. Overall, I really liked reading the book and it was excited seeing how the whole thing came together.
Made for You is about a girl named Eva Tilling that was hit intentionally but a mysterious person and she lands in the hospital. As she gets better, the whole town is abuzz about who tried to kill her and Eva soon develops a skill - the ability to foresee people’s deaths when they touch her. It also brings her closer to Nate, an old friend who's feelings for Eva soon spark. I thought the whole book had a very intriguiing and fresh idea. I liked how the book was very fast to start and things wents on a roll. Marr really hit it on point with the story and plot, but her characters failed.
Eva was a good character, but I was expecting so much more out of her. I liked the way she told her flashbacks when she touched an item and it was vivid and clear. I expected Eva to be more colorful and characterized more. She started to be a stale cracker for me towards the end of the book. I liked Nate, he really gave something more to Eva and the story and his relationship was interesting.
I absolutely loved the action and suspense scenes in Made For You! It was clear and action - packed, I loved every second of it! Marr definitely knows how to write killer action scenes and the book showcased them perfectly. In addition, I also loved how the book pieced everything together. The visions with the killings and Eva's ability. The ending was the strongest part of the book and any reader would have not guessed the ending at all!
Be sure to pick up Made For You! It was an intriguing and clever book and I hope you guys pick it up!
