    In YOU and HIDDEN BODIES, the love was toxic. In PROVIDENCE, it?s sweeter, purer, but no less dangerous. My favorite of Kepnes? books so far, PROVIDENCE is a real heart-stopper. ...

    When Jon Bronson disappears on the way to school one day, he leaves his best friend Chloe wondering what happened to him. Four years later, he wakes up in a basement, jacked up and with no memory of the past four years, only a copy of The Dunwich Horror with some notes written inside. ...

    I GOT APPROVED REVIEW Buddy-read with the fabulous Nenia! I guess I went into this expecting another YOU. Not exactly, but just something as good and dense and witty. I did not get that. Everything that made YOU good was either absent or half-hearted in PROVIDENCE: the ...

    There is a lot going on in this book, and I really, really wish the author Caroline Kepnes had an interview already released somewhere that reveals her inspiration or intended message. Is this a reimagining of H.P. Lovecraft's short story: The Dunwich Horror? It is the creation of a ch...

    Oh, this book. How on earth does one review such a unique book without ruining the experience for others? This is one of those books that you should experience going in nearly cold. Strangely enough this book takes place in a town five minutes from my home. Me, being me, was reading...

    Jon and Chloe are best friends who have grown up together in a small town in New Hampshire. Jon is sort of an outcast and is bullied by his peers. Chloe does not care when her friends ridicule her for sitting with Jon at lunch or for hanging out with him after school. Both feel a conne...

    ???? / 5 I was a little apprehensive going into Providence because of all the less than stellar reviews out there. Not that I wouldn't read it since it is written by one of my favorite's Caroline Kepnes, but I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Well I'm very glad to have gott...

    I did not want to put this book down. I was immediately drawn in, and so in love with the characters and their stories. Providence is another amazing novel from a writer who is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Jon Bronson is the kid that the popular boys pick on. But Jon is fri...

    4.5/5 stars! PROVIDENCE is a tale of love and heartbreak, (literally and figuratively), infused throughout with a powerful longing for something that's just out of reach. I. LOVED. IT. !! Young Jon Bronson is stolen away from his life and his first love, Chloe. He wakes up in a b...

    When the newest book, Providence, by Caroline Kepnes became available, I excitedly requested and downloaded it on NetGalley. Her first book, You, is one of my favorites, and her second, Hidden Bodies, was very strong. I rushed through Providence this week turning the pages and watching...

    Available Now: Amazon There is no other way for me to describe this book other than heavy. At times it seems there is no real purpose to this book, there's no glowing happily ever after promised, but as you get into the minds of Jon, Chloe, and Eggs we begin to understand how obsess...

    With Providence, Caroline Kepnes proves that she's not a one-hit (one-character?) wonder. There will certainly be those who dislike this novel based solely on the fact that it is not another Joe Goldberg story, but those people should be ignored. Same goes for anyone who bitches about ...

    Worth a read. Loved the concept, but the execution was murky. If you need concrete answers you may feel unfulfilled. I was always intrigued and the audiobook narrators were fantastic. Content: Kidnapping. Human trafficking (very brief). Heart attack. Cancer. R slur used by bad gu...

    Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/ So many thoughts. Please bear with me . . . . The basics of Providence is that it is about a boy who disappeared and returned four years later . . . different than he was before. It becomes his mission over the y...

    Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review. I was a massive fan of Caroline Kepnes' book YOU. It was intense, intriguing, captivating, and terrifying (in an "OMG am I rooting for this psychopath?" kinda way). I've yet to read ...

    Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher, for providing a free, electronic ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review. When Jon Bronson disappears without a trace at the age of 13, no one really misses him. No one, that is, except his best friend Chloe, and his parents. Four ...

    What the fuck is this book? This book was my most anticipated book of the year, because You is one of my favorite books of all time. I read this books description and I thought it sounded so cool and I couldn't wait to read it and now I'm just like..... what??? This book was strange. P...

    4.5 stars! After reading YOU and Hidden Bodies earlier this year and falling madly in love with Caroline Kepnes' writing style, you can imagine how eager I was to read Providence by Caroline Kepnes. Now, Providence is not a 'Joe & Beck' story, let's just clarify that straight away...

    3.5 mishmash stars to Providence! ? ? ?.5 I listened to Caroline Kepnes? YOU on audio this exact same time two years ago. THAT was an experience, and if you enjoy audios and don?t mind disturbing content, it?s the best audio I know. When I saw Kepnes had a new thriller r...

    Anyone who has followed my reviews may have heard me mention Caroline Kepnes first book YOU and how much I loved that story so of course I was going to grab anything else that she had written. Picking up Providence I was well aware that it was nothing like YOU and that was perfectly fi...

    Read this review on Julie's Bookshelf My, oh my is Caroline Kepnes a unique creature... she needs to be in a genre of her own! Although I?m a romantic, I don?t typically read love stories. Although I?m a fan of shows such as Stranger Things and X-Files, I tend to stray away fr...

    4 Wild Stars ???? Wow! This book was nothing and I mean nothing like Caroline Kepnes?s previous books.... this book was a mixture of young adult, crime fiction, the supernatural, and much more! It was a genre potpourri... and it worked... because the thing this had i...

    Unite science fiction, missing person mystery, and love story and you have Providence, a novel by Caroline Kepnes. Jon, a middle schooler, vanished on his way to school. Four years later, he reappears only now as a bigger, healthier, stronger specimen. There are inexplicable consequen...

    Le sigh. Maybe I?ve just hit a reading slump, but it seems like my concerns going into this one ended up being valid (for me) after all. I?m very touch and go with the fantasy/science fiction that I enjoy; rarely do I read any type of urban fantasy and I typically only pick up the ...

    To be published by Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner?s imprint Lenny, Providence is a book targeted at millennials. I am not a millennial and quite far from it. Although I wasn?t a huge fan of You (Kepnes first book) I thought a different publisher, a different editor and a departure fr...

    Firstly, I need to mention how very different this book is to Ms. Kepnes' previous books You and Hidden Bodies. So much so that I think peoples reactions to this are going to be all over the place. Where do I stand? I LOVED IT!!!! Where You and Hidden Bodies were dysfunctional (put...
