12+ Book Ideas for Christmas, part VI


When a beautiful aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card.

An entire book from the bad guy’s point of view? Awesome. So savvy, too. This book is so freaking creepy, it gets under your skin. Why? Because it’s a modern issue, because Joe is too real not to be believed, and because you are Beck. Or she’s your daughter, which is pretty much not helping one bit. In style, in its structure, in its well-drawn characters, this book is a textbook example of amazing storytelling.
