Hey lovelies, welcome back!
I've just finished watching the Netflix original series, YOU, based on the bestselling book by Caroline Kepnes and wanted to share my thoughts with you.
*and yes, I am listening to 'Every Breath You Take' by The Police as I write this review*
"Obsessed with an aspiring writer, a charming bookstore manager goes to extreme measures to insert himself into her life." - Netflix.
I actually really enjoyed watch this show. I mean I binged it in 3 days... Sure it's only 10 episodes long but I had an essay due too... as a student it's impressive!
Let's ignore that fact that Joe Goldberg is a complete psychopath, and that I seriously wanted to go and delete all my social media accounts and close my blinds after watching Ep.1, this is actually a really good show and I can see why it's got the attention it has.
It's excellently produced, is full of suspense and has a killer *pun intended* cast from many well known shows such as Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars (see a theme here) and Fuller House. This was sure to be a hit for me, and clearly many other people as Netflix claims its's reached "40 million viewers" already!
I didn't realise until after I'd started watching that it was based on a book, naturally this meant a trip to Waterstones to buy said book which is now sitting impatiently on my TBR shelf waiting for me to pick it up. I'll let you know if you what I thought of the book once I've read it so stay tuned!
