Netflix Series: You #Netflix #BookToFilm @Netflix_CA @CarolineKepnes

My Rating: 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥/5

I had this book on my TBR, but couldn’t help myself and wanted to watch the show first!

I found it highly addictive and as always, binge watched it till the sun rose.

Let me just say, this show was totally F-U-C-K-E-D UP! So juicy, with some really great twists!

The Characters

Joe Goldberg

A seemingly normal guy who manages a bookstore, but turns out to be a total creeper. The thing is, on the surface, there’s nothing about him that spells STALKER or CREEPY when you first meet him. In fact, the way his character is written and portrayed, you almost feel empathy for this guy at times.

Bravo 👏. This character was incredibly well played and well written!


OMG. So different from Emily in Pretty Little Liars. She surprised me the most! Definitely a character you love to hate and gets under your skin.


Beck, Beck, Beck..this girl is just a wreck with all kinds of issues! Seriously. Face palm! 🤦‍♀️ I shook my head on multiple occasions. Girl! You are better than that!

I did find myself rooting for her till the very end though.

Dr. Nicky aka 🦊

Ok, really!? Who wouldn’t want to bang the hot therapist?!! I would’ve lost the stache though.

Poor Dr. Nicky! The unknowing participant who winds up in prison for something he didn’t unfortunate. I hope his outcome turns out differently in season 2. Justice must prevail!!


Joe’s first love and victim. Throughout the show, you’re left with the mystery of what really happened to her, which isn’t revealed and for good reason. All we know is that she’s dead and haunts Joe in his waking life.

I highly recommend this show if you’re looking for a good thriller. 🙂

I’m looking forward to comparing the book!

Have you watched it? Read it? Let me know your thoughts!!

    1. Apparently they stuck very closely to the book for the show. I read the first 3 pages and it’s identical to the first episode which is great! I love when they don’t steer too far from the original story.


  1. Great review!

    I read YOU before watching the series when it was still on Lifetime. Also read the sequel after that. Woah, some of the most twisted stories I ever read, but also such great thrillers at the same time. YOU was by far the best book I read in 2018. I thought the tv series was perfectly adapted. I won’t say more about the book vs. show because there were some changes. But can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the book. Can’t wait for Season 2!

      1. Yeah it sounds like for Season 2 that some of the characters for the show aren’t exactly the same characters from the book. More like a somewhat version of the book characters, for some of them. You’ll see what I mean when you read YOU and the sequel. I won’t say more cause spoilers, LoL.
