Review : The Girl in 6E (Deanna Madden #1) by A. R. Torre

“I haven’t touched a human in three years. That seems like it would be a difficult task, but it’s not. Not anymore, thanks to the internet. I am, quite possibly, the most popular recluse ever. Not many shut-ins have a 200-member fan club, a bank account in the seven-figure range, and hundreds of men lining up to pay for undivided attention. They get satisfaction, I get a distraction. Their secret desires are nothing compared to why I hide… my lust for blood, my love of death. Taking their money is easy. Keeping all these secrets… one is bound to escape.

What if you hid yourself away because all you could think of was killing? And what if one girl’s life depending on you venturing into society?”

This book was absolutely incredible. It’s not something i would’ve usually pick up, but the cover, the synopsis, the reviews, i had to check it out and i’m so glad i did. I love the storyline. It was original and intense. It really took me by surprised. The mystery was well-done and seeing our character care about something out of her apartement was so great. Deanna is one twisted main character, but i love her. She was easy to like, fun to follow, smart, intense and interesting. Complex characters are always a plus in a book. I liked seeing her interact with the other characters. Mike, Simon and Jeremy were all fun. I hope we get to see more of them in the next books. I want to see how her relationship with Jeremy is going to work knowing how messed Deanna’s life and mind are. I also really enjoyed learning about Deanna’s customers, how she takes her job really seriously and how she knows little bits of each of their lifes. The writing was great too, i did feel like the multiple POVs were not necessery. I would’ve cut off the ones with Annie’s parents, but it wasn’t that bad since most of the chapters were really short. 

This book was fantastic. quick, dark and twised, exactly how i love my mystery books. I higly recommend it.
