Today is a big day. Caroline Kepnes’s debut novel YOU was finally “born into this world” at midnight-ish in bookstores across America.
This book is so thought-provoking, so clever, and so wickedly entertaining that everyone deserves to know about it!
Today I get to hold YOU. Feel YOU. I need YOU.
I’m obsessed with YOU.
YOU: The debut novel by Caroline Kepnes, a novel so dark and twisted, you can’t look away. And worst of all: you don’t want to. It’s available today, and I dare you to not be fascinated by it, not to talk about it, not to be consumed by it. This is the type of novel that comes around once in a decade, the one that’s being compared to Gone Girl by PopSugar and Harper’s Bazaar and likened to “Lolita, if [Stephen] King wrote it”. The kind of book that keeps people up until 2 AM reading it and ’til dawn thinking about it. A plot so fascinatingly twisted that the book “isn’t even out yet, but it has already been compared to Bret Easton Ellis’ magnum opus ‘American Psycho'” (Salon).

When aspiring writer Guinevere Beck strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe works, he’s instantly smitten. Beck is everything Joe has ever wanted: She’s gorgeous, tough, razor-smart, and as sexy as his wildest dreams.
Beck doesn’t know it yet, but she’s perfect for him, and soon she can’t resist her feelings for a guy who seems custom made for her. But there’s more to Joe than Beck realizes, and much more to Beck than her oh-so-perfect façade. Their mutual obsession quickly spirals into a whirlwind of deadly consequences . . .
A chilling account of unrelenting passion, Caroline Kepnes’s You is a perversely romantic thriller that’s more dangerously clever than any you’ve read before.
