Made for You by Melissa Marr

2014, HarperCollins

Synopsis: 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.

The Good: This was an extremely thrilling mystery. I loved being stumped the entire time I read the book. I loved Eva, her outlook and her friendship/romance/whatever with Nate. It was great how the visions Eva had changed as soon as the people involved in the visions changed their minds. The book was legitimately scary at times. More of a creepy, unsafe feeling. That was very awesome, having a book effect me like that.

The Bad: There was no real satisfying explanation to Eva's visions. Yes, it was resolved and finalized and all that jazz, but I never really got the feeling that the we knew for sure why she was having the visions that were so directly connected to the killer.
