Review + Giveaway: THERE'S SOMEONE INSIDE YOUR HOUSE by Stephanie Perkins

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.

Man oh man. Nothing gets you more ready for Halloween than a murder mystery type book. 

I’m usually a huge chicken when it comes to reading anything regarding horror. Watching scary movies is a bit different for me since I’m usually watching them with another person. However, I didn’t find this book to be as scary as I originally thought! 

So if you’re like me, and chicken out with anything horror related - don’t fret! You can definitely read this one (there were some parts that had me a little shaken up though!). I will say that there are some pretty gory parts and I was pleasantly surprised with it being YA! 

In the synopsis, this book is described like the movie Scream meets YA - which it definitely does. I personally found the film pretty cheesy in some parts and I feel like there were some cheesiness in this book as well and parts were almost comical and I loved that it added that humor. Just like the movie it’s compared to, this book had one murderer terrorizing a town of people and everyone is suspicious as well as quite a bit of hazing! 

I liked the characters in this book! One who really stood out to me was Makani. I loved how she was a biracial protagonist - because let’s be honest, there isn’t a lot of that in YA. I don’t want to forget to mention that there are also some LGBTQ in this book too!! 

I haven’t read a lot of horror in YA, and I’m  happy to have read this book! I’ve heard a lot about Stephanie Perkins’ books, and while i haven’t had a chance to read her others, I’ve heard great things about her writing. I’ll definitely be reading more of her work soon! 

If you’re looking for a quick YA read, with some vicious scenes, humor, as well as murder mystery - this book is for you.
