I post book reviews as often as possible but at least once a week every Wednesday! I hope they help you to find some new books that you'll love as much as I did!
Juliette loves Nate.
She will follow him anywhere. She's even become a flight attendant for his airline, so she can keep a closer eye on him.
They are meant to be.
The fact that Nate broke up with her six months ago means nothing.
Because Juliette has a plan to win him back.
She is the perfect girlfriend.
And she'll make sure no one stops her from getting exactly what she wants.
True love hurts, but Juliette knows it's worth all the pain...
From the outset, I knew I'd be in for a hell of a ride with Juliette. She's mysterious and quite creepy and it's immediately clear that she's delusional. Yet she has something about her that left me transfixed on her every word and always wondering what on earth she was going to do next. However much I thought she'd reached peak absurdity, she managed to shock me over and over again. She is completely obsessed and creates extensive plans which are chilling and twisted.
I didn't particularly like her or the things that she did, but despite this, I couldn't help wanting things to work out for Juliette. There's such a vulnerability and desperation to her that it's impossible not to feel for her even as she shows the more sinister side to her character.
Combined with brilliantly vivid and detailed descriptions, this book makes for an extremely unsettling read, showing that you can never truly know what's going on in someone else's mind.
Overall, I'm giving The Perfect Girlfriend 4 out of 5. It's chilling and unsettling with a compelling protagonist that makes it impossible to put down.
