Synopsis (from Goodreads)

Bestselling author of the Wicked Lovely books Melissa Marr’s first contemporary YA novel is a twisted southern gothic tale of obsession, romance, and murder. A killer is obsessed with Eva Tilling. Can she stop him, or will he claim her?

When Eva Tilling wakes up in the hospital, she’s confused—who in her sleepy little North Carolina town could have hit her with their car? And why? But before she can consider the question, she finds that she’s awoken with a strange new skill: the ability to foresee people’s deaths when they touch her. While she is recovering from the hit-and-run, Nate, an old flame, reappears, and the two must traverse their rocky past as they figure out how to use Eva’s power to keep her friends—and themselves—alive. But while Eva and Nate grow closer, the killer grows increasingly frantic in his attempt to get to Eva.

For the first time, New York Times bestselling author Melissa Marr has applied her extraordinary talent to contemporary realism. Chilling twists, unrequited obsession, and high-stakes romance drive this Gothic, racy thriller—a story of small-town oppression and salvation. Melissa’s fans, and every YA reader, will find its wild ride enthralling.

My Thoughts

Before reading this book I was extremely iffy about starting it. I haven't really read anything like this before, and just wasn't sure if I entirely wanted to read it. However, I saw it on the digital library homepage and thought why not. I surprisingly liked it. I love the fact that it is something new. What I love most about the book is probably the fact that there is so many points of view's(well somewhat). You get to look into the mind of the main character Eva, her friend Grace, and dun dun dun... the serial killer, Judge. Until the ending you have no idea who this "Judge" is. Which I freaking love and it kind of brought out my competitive streak in me. I spent the entire time trying looking for clues on who Judge is before the book revealed who he was. Which I honestly failed... I thought it was someone else. XD Even thought I love the fact that the book has different point of views, I was immensely creeped out by Judge. Anyone who has read the book would understand. He puts a whole another level on creeper. He is extremely insane. When ever I would finish a chapter of his point of view I would just be like...

Even though I was disturbed by the crap Judge was talking about I feel like it made the book better and kind of feel more realistic.
I also didn't really like the romance that was added to this book. I kind of felt like it was unnecessary. Like I can list whole bunch of stuff that is more important than her wanting to make out with Nate. Like the fact the guy who tried to kill you, and is obsessed over you is now killing your friends one by one. But, hey whatever.
Anyways, I really liked this book. This concept was really new to me and I loved it. I want to now check out other mystery books in the future! Any recommendations? Did you read this? What were your thoughts on it?

Thanks for reading!
