Made for You by Melissa Marr

Book Summery (Via Goodreads):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.

Book Review:
I have been a fan of Melissa Marr for a while. Here is a link to some of my reviews of her other books. Once again, Marr hits it out of the park! Made for You is a southern YA mystery. Eva, while the popular queen bee, is very down-to-earth and easy to relate to. I could feel her sorrow in the hospital. I could feel her fear of not knowing who the killer might be. I could feel her hope of a possible romance. Needless to say, it's easy to step into Eva's shoes. I enjoyed Eva's relationship with her parents, as well as her friends. It's very easy to get invested in the supporting characters as well as Eva. As a nurse, it was easy to relate to the hospital setting. In fact, I worked on a neurology unit for many, many years. Marr got it right, from the terminology, to the symptoms, to the nurses. I'm impressed. Overall, this book was engaging and extremely difficult to set down! As a fan of Marr's work, I will definitely be picking her books in the future.

Cover Art Commentary:
Hello gorgeous! I love EVERYTHING about this cover! I love the font. I love the design. I LOVE THE COLOR!!!! *ahem* I'll reign it in...

  1. I enjoyed this one a great deal as well and I love that cover! There isn't enough good YA mystery/thrillers if you ask me. I also liked this author's Wicked Lovely books and Carnival of Souls. I wish she wrote a sequel for the Carnival of Souls books.
