I hope all of you are staying safe during this difficult time. Are you bored during the quarantine? Read a book! Then read another book! Oh, and wash your hands.
I’ve read A LOT books in the last couple of weeks. I finished reading Someone’s Inside Your House just this morning…
Stephanie Perkins, author of Anna and the French Kiss, writes a teen slasher/thriller novel.
To escape her demons in Hawaii, Makani Young moved to Nebraska to live with her grandmother. A year later, Makani has made a couple of close friends and starts a thing with the school loner, Ollie, who has his own secrets to hide. Makani is still adjusting to her new life in a small town when suddenly a classmate is murdered. Then another. And another. A serial killer is among her peers, lurking in the shadows. Even after the suspect is identified, the body count keeps rising. Makani and her friends try to warn other classmates that they could be next, but it’s too late. The killer strikes again. Makani will have to come face-to-face with the murderer and her past, too.
There’s Someone Inside Your House is a mediocre novel I’ll forget about by tomorrow morning. The characters were diverse, but they lacked depth. I didn’t care for any of the victims, but it was the mystery that kept me reading until the end. I had to know who the killer was and what secrets Makani and Ollie kept hidden. Perkins did a good job building the suspense, but I was left disappointed. If you’re looking for a horror novel, this isn’t it; however, if you’re looking for a story with a little mystery, murder and teen romance, you might enjoy it. Worth a one-time read. 3.3/5 stars!
There’s Someone Inside Your House is going to be a Netflix film! Keep an eye out for that. Can we make Anna and the French Kiss a movie, too? I loved that book!
