Need (Need, #1) by Carrie Jones, Book Review
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
Hey, y'all! Today, I will be reviewing NEED by best-selling author, Carrie Jones. NEED, an urban fantasy novel, chronicles the life of a phobia-obsessed girl named Zara White who kinda wants to save the world. After the untimely demise of her stepfather, Zara's mother ships her off to live with her stepgrandmother, Betty, in a cold, sleepy Maine town. Zara isn't your normal girl and embraces her individuality with pride. I found NEED to have a TWILIGHT-like facade, but I LOVE TWILIGHT so it's all good. :)
I really, really enjoyed this book. Jones is an obvious pro at writing and the sequel to NEED is CAPTIVATE. I think/hope it'll be even better than NEED, if possible. If you haven't already read this fantasic book, go out to the nearest bookstore and purchase it. Or, if you're hasty or low on cash, borrow it from a friend or borrow it from a local library. All that matters in a book is if it brings through happiness and enjoyment to the reader.

Enjoy, happy reading, and have a great Thursday night!
