Her upcoming HarperCollins 2014 release, Made For You, utilizes both her graduate degree in Southern Literature and her personal experience with stalkers in a story about a killer who terrorizes a small North Carolina town. I mean, you could probably figure it out from the first chapter. Or maybe I should say I was better with it. What at first seems like a hit and run turns out to be the first in a series of murders which are revealed to be connected to Eva. Someone tried to kill her and after she survived, people close to her are starting to die. Chilling twists, unrequited obsession, and high-stakes romance drive Melissa Marr's racy thriller-a story of small-town oppression and salvation.
But when she is hit by a car and left for dead everyone starts to wonder if someone would very much like to hurt her. That being said, I enjoyed the mystery. So who is he calling prideful? I received this free from the publishers via NetGalley Eva Tiller gets hit by a car and ends up in hospital. Soon the messages from the killer begin to show up and show their connection to Eva, when the killer cuts her name in one of them. From New York Times bestselling author Melissa Marr. Chilling twists, unrequited obsession, and high-stakes romance drive this Gothic, racy thriller—a story of small-town oppression and salvation.
Even though the revelation itself is a bit underwhelming, it's still worth the read. If you are a young adult thriller fan you are in for a real treat with Made for You! And so she used this to find out who the mystery killer is. She can see how someone is going to die. Her memories are a little scattered and she has scars all over. But strange things happen and everyone she knows are starting to drop dead and now she must use her ability to find her stalker and keep all of her friends alive!! I found the addition of Eva's visions easy to accept as they were so well written. Her first picture book Bunny Roo will be released in 2015.
I loved loved this one to! Even then, I'm not a fan of an actual devastating injury being used as a plot device for a character to get powers. The characters:Eva was realistic and lovable. One of the authors was Melissa Marr and I was so curious when I saw hoe many die hard fans of hers were there. The writing had a creepy factor that I loved. . While this doesn't win any awards with me especially since I've read a handful of creepy books this year , it was definitely great entertainment and I won't hesitate to recommend it in the future. In short, she'll read anything.
And I must say that I wasn't disappointed at all. Except for some things at the end. And why he tried to kill me. Samantha was new to me. I don't do groups as a rule.
The whole book I was dying to figure out who this messed up person is in Eva's life. The story is told in the first person, from different points of view, mostly Eva, Grace and Judge. We could get a great sense of the person's innermost thoughts and learn so much more about them through their thoughts than through their actions and speech. Some coffee and food will help me think. I felt like there was a heavy presence of romance which really took away from my enjoyment of Made For You. Made For You is a creepy, disturbing and intense thriller about an obsessed stalker and psychopath. My mother has an almost pathological need to take covered dishes to mourners.
The first time I saw Made For You, I know I want to read it. Chilling twists, unrequited obsession, and high-stakes romance drive this Gothic, racy thriller—a story of small-town oppression and salvation. Made for You by Melissa Marr was the kind of book that you read to be creeped out. But wait, that's not all. I also like how the letters in the title are uneven, as if they were unstable. The sad thing is that Grace knows she's only tolerated because of Eva. Eva approaches the world with refreshing honesty and directness.
I hadn't read anything by this author before, but now I will definitely check out more of Marr's books. I just hate the way people watch me. Personally, I felt something was missing from the plotline, it all seemed to revolve around the local area but I kind of wished that the main characters travelled somewhere else? Why you should give it a try?? Eva wakes up with a new and disturbingly inconvenient ability. Which is a good sign because it means I'm enjoying the storyline and it's getting into me. As a protagonist, I found Eva to be decent.
Well, what a good find! For the first time, New York Times bestselling author Melissa Marr has applied her extraordinary talent to contemporary realism. I was easily hooked from the very first page. The narration on this was fabulous, read by three different people. She is best known for the Wicked Lovely series for teens and Graveminder for adults. There is a killer on the loose, and he is after Eva. The paranormal aspect comes in after Eva survives the hit and run murder attempt on her life and she starts seeing visions of how people are going to die when they touch her. It played a big part though so I still pointed it out.
The romance was pretty cute, but I felt that it came out of left field in the beginning. I appreciate her feminist views and her fierce friendship with her classmates and her unique and adorable relationship with her mom. When Eva starts to have hallucinations showing her friends being murdered, how can she tell people that they will die? He is known as The Judge and he was seriously so creepy! You probably want to know why and I'll try to explain without spoiling the story for you. Anyway, I don't know if this is a really a bad thing because the romance isn't the main point of the story. Would anyone say that in this century? She's strong willed and a tad stubborn, but also very nice to others.
