Hidden Bodies - Caroline Kepnes


I know I’ve been away from my blog for a while, but there’s no point in saying something for the sake of it is there? To be honest I’ve just been super busy, and haven’t had the chance to update my lil’ space on the internet. I know, I know, I said that last time too…

Anyway. I’ve FINALLY read another book, and it’s this corker. Hidden Bodies is another one by Caroline Kepnes, and follows directly on from ‘You’, a book I reviewed here and a slightly less than charming guy named Joe and his…ahem…adventures with his then girlfriend, Beck.

In this book, Beck is long gone (literally) and Joe has moved on. In fact, he’s fallen head over heels for another girl whom he met in almost the same way. Obviously, she breaks our poor protagonist’s heart by moving away, and he does everything he can to get her back…

The story follows Joe on his journey to Hollywood and his dealings with socialites along the way – one of whom he thinks is the one – the only problem is hiding his past from her…

Like You, this is very well written, but I do recommend reading You first for this to make any sense. Joe is very much as deranged and psychotic as he was last time round, so this book really isn’t for anyone who gets easily creeped out.

Again, you do end up feeling sorry for him at some points, which made me question my moral compass!
