Scream meets YA in this hotly-anticipated new novel from the bestselling author of Anna and the French Kiss.

One-by-one, the students of Osborne High are dying in a series of gruesome murders, each with increasing and grotesque flair. As the terror grows closer and the hunt intensifies for the killer, the dark secrets among them must finally be confronted.

International bestselling author Stephanie Perkins returns with a fresh take on the classic teen slasher story that’s fun, quick-witted, and completely impossible to put down. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts...

There's Someone Inside Your House was one of my most anticipated reads of the year, because, well... it's Stephanie Perkins, y'all! I've loved everything that I've read by her so far, so I knew I would love this new book as well, even though I'm SO not a fan of horror stories. But, I pushed through and read the book despite my dislike of creepy stuff, and I'm so glad that I did!

There are a lot of interesting characters in the story to keep up with, but I'll warn you not to get too attached to anyone, because you never know who the next victim will be. And though this is a thriller/horror story, there was still some romance in the storyline that was super sweet as well, and it was classic Stephanie Perkins. I think I loved that part the most.

The storyline for the book definitely excelled with the creep factor, but it really wasn't anything I couldn't handle. (Ok, ok... Some of the descriptions of the murders were gross, and I had to set the book down for a moment, but that's about it.) There was a pretty good bit of suspense throughout the story, and that definitely kept me interested. This book was a really quick read, not only because it came in at just under 300 pages, but also because the story completely grabs your attention, and you'll definitely want to know what happens next.

Overall; If you're a fan of horror stories, you should definitely have There's Someone Inside Your House on your reading list! It would also be great for your Halloween TBR as well, as the story is set in the Fall season, which makes it a great Halloween read. Do check it out!

  2. I'm not a big fan of horror, but I want to try and spread my wings! The fact that there is some romance to offset the horror is a plus for me. :)I don't know when I'll be reading this, but I hope I like it when I do!
