Friday Book Recommendation--NEED by Carrie Jones

Happy Friday! My book recommendation this week is NEED by Carrie Jones. This is another one I picked up in the book store based solely on the cover and title. After reading the jacket flap, I was sold.

Summary from Goodreads:

Zara White suspects there's a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She's also obsessed with phobias. And it's true, she hasn't exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane...but Zara's pretty sure her mom just can't deal with her right now.

She couldn't be more wrong. Turns out the semi-stalker is not a figment of Zara's overactive imagination. In fact, he's still following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There's something not right - not human - in this sleepy Maine town, and all signs point to Zara.

In this creepy, compelling breakout novel, Carrie Jones delivers romance, suspense, and a creature you never thought you'd have to fear.

Why I liked it? Well, it's creepy and funny which scores big points in my book. I loved the voice of the MC, Zara, and the secondary characters were well-developed and endearing. WARNING: You'll never see pixies as cute again after reading this. If you want a fast-paced, tension-filled page turner, check this out. I'm almost finished with the second, CAPTIVATE, and can't wait for the next one. 

Anyone else read this? Anyone look at tall, pale men differently now (no offense intended to tall, pale non-pixie men)?


  1. I am actually reading the second book right now as well. I love Carrie Jones' voice in these books, which is why I bought NEED. The only thing I'm disappointed in is the ending. I don't think she builds up the tension enough. Although she had one really super intense scene that was pretty awesome.

  2. Kathryn--I love how the second book picks up right where the first left off. Also, the new twists/turns are awesome--I'll have to finish this today.

  3. I haven't read this one yet, but I have a poster with the three covers on it. Glittery lips!


  4. Lacey--all the covers are awesome! Also, you'd love these books and could probably read them all in a day. :)

  5. I've read Need already and loved it! Great Recommendations

  6. Naj--the second is just as good if you haven't read it.
