Hidden Bodies (You #2) by Caroline Kepnes **Debbie’s Review**





Charmingly murderous antihero Joe continues his twisted quest for the perfect love in this thrilling follow-up to the “deeply dark yet mesmerizing” You (Booklist). When Joe follows the woman he wants to marry to the West Coast, he never imagines that his obsession will lead him to such tragedy…

After the heartbreak of losing his girlfriend, Beck, Joe Goldberg thought he’d never love again. But when mysterious Amy Adam begins working for Joe at Mooney Books, he finds himself obsessed with his new employee. Amy is Beck’s opposite—she hates Twitter, she doesn’t even have an email address, she’s completely unsearchable online—and she quickly captures Joe’s heart. But just before Joe can ask Amy to marry him, she disappears, leaving a trail of clues in her wake.

Joe is then forced to do something so vile, so awful that he nearly loses his mind: he moves to Los Angeles to find Amy. He is tortured by a series of aspiring Angelenos—an insufferable stand-up comedian, philistine booksellers, a money-hungry nanny, and a slutty ghostwriter—before meeting his ticket to a more luxurious world: a surgically enhanced, social media–savvy heiress named Love Quinn. But Joe can’t stop stalking Amy, despite the world opening up to him with Love on his arm. Will Joe finally escape his sordid past? Or is Love just the latest casualty in Joe’s unrelenting search for the perfect match?

5 stars


5 Mind-blowing Stars!!!!!!



“Because I am gonna do whatever it takes to get that motherfucking mouse out of my motherfucking house.”


Climb aboard the crazy train because this book is gonna blow your mind!!!


After finishing this book I have to say the author has me questioning my sanity. I think I might need some serious therapy because I freaking love Joe!!! Yup, I have to say he was insane but the author brilliantly wrote this book where you were actually agreeing with the insane things he did.


“But I did not expect a bush. She kissed me. “Welcome to the jungle.”


“I teach and I teach and I test and I test, and yet I’m the one who never learns. I choose wrong every time.”


I cannot begin to tell you how brilliantly written this book is. This book is complex and takes time to read because Joe is a complex guy and his mind is full of greatness. The author weaved together a story that will have you on the edge of your seat, biting your nails and afraid to flip to the next page. There are so many things I wan to say about how fantastically written this book is but I don’t want to give anything away. I am going to say this though; author Caroline Kepnes is a fucking genius!!!!!! This book is like nothing I have ever read. It is dark, it is deep, and it will blow your fucking mind!!!!


“Love is a Battlefield” begins to play and she is correct. This is war”


The first book was told in second person and I have never read a book told this way. This book was in first and I think this is what makes this book even better. We got to be inside Joe’s head. You get to experience all the emotions and his thoughts. It gave it that creepy feel that will have you holding your breath several times.


The author throws several plot twists and this book is one that you cannot even predict what is going to happen. This author is beyond brilliant!!! She takes you on a journey that you don’t want to see end. I am hoping we are going to get a third book because I need more JOE!!!!
