You make them into what you want them to be, the people they could be if only they were braver, smarter.

Unfortunately, he's distracted by Delilah, one of the women in his apartment complex who has the hots for him. Joe is really trying to analyze his life and his choices, and he's deadly serious (sorry, wrong choice of words 😄) about finding actual true love this time.I was pleasantly surprised when the last 100 or so pages took the story in quite a different and unexpected direction, but it wasn't enough to turn the book around for me. While I enjoyed several parts of it, it doesn't hold a candle to the first book and I'll explain why below.
out of 5 stars to Hidden Bodies, the second book in a thriller and suspense series by Caroline Kepnes. I loved this sequal just as much as I loved book one, I literally want to stand on my balcony and scream to the author to hurry up and finish book three because I just HAVE to know what happens next. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case within thirty (30) days of the day we confirm via e-mail that you are entitled to a refund for defective goods. IF you see me picking up the third and the fourth books (why is this a thing) slap me, kill me, bully me, idk what.
I see his small life, it’s all in his eyes, unlived, dreams he didn’t chase, dreams he won’t chase, not because he’s a pussy, because he simply doesn’t see his dreams in detail, the kind of details that drive a person to pack their shit, to move. It almost felt like the author gave up trying to create something fresh within this world and tried to rely on the success of book one to sell the sequel. Meanwhile, the murders from him time in New York are catching up to him, cases are reopened, the police are looking more closely into the deaths - it’s only a matter of time. What I found clever and enticing in You seems to have vanished, and in its place you took me on a crude meandering journey that felt too long -- way too long -- and pointless. OMG dammit what happened to the witty, intellectual, sarcastic and entertaining inner monologue of Joe?
Jon’s only clue to his missing four years is the battered book left behind by the man he believes abducted him. I almost gave up a few times -- and I must confess that I did some pretty heavy duty skimming -- but I had to read to the end to make sure you hadn’t set some kind of trap for me somewhere along the way. more like, never-in-a-million-years-could-i-have-predicted-that-this-would-be-the-way-this-story-goes. Kepnes] shows us our essential vulnerability, and how easy it is to fall in love with someone not because of who they are but because they reflect back to us our most cherished ideals and secret points of pride. Gallery images of our book boxes show an example of what may be included – treat and gift content may differ.The story reads like the love child of Holden Caulfield and Patrick Bateman but without the gore and misogyny, which means nothing stands in the way of the reader enjoying Joe's cynical, murderous charm. I wanted to read this sequel even though I wasn’t a big fan of the first book and I wanted to see what was coming next on Netflix series! I’m also going to kill her because there is no happy ending for a star-fucking girl like Delilah, a girl who actively refuses to embrace her talents, celebrate her insides, lead with her brain. He loves Love and she doesn’t love him back and most of the time in life, I’m starting to realize, love is not the problem.
