I am 100% here for all of the slasher/murdery books out there and when I heard that Stephanie Perkins was going to be writing in the horror genre, I was beyond excited. I had been hearing her talk about the story for There’s Someone Inside Your House for so long, I was dying to get it in my greedy hands and it was definitely worth the wait.
When it came time for the blog tour, I’m pretty sure my reply email to the invite was complete gibberish.
Before I share my top 5 reasons to read TSIYH, let’s check out the book!
Title: There’s Someone Inside Your House
Author: Stephanie Perkins
Pub Date: September 26, 2017
Publisher: Dutton Books for Young Readers
Find it: PRH | Indiebound | B&N | Amazon | Goodreads
It’s been almost a year since Makani Young came to live with her grandmother in landlocked Nebraska, and she’s still adjusting to her new life. And still haunted by her past in Hawaii.
Then, one by one, the students of her small town high school begin to die in a series of gruesome murders, each with increasing and grotesque flair. As the terror grows closer and the hunt intensifies for the killer, Makani will be forced to confront her own dark secrets.
Stephanie Perkins, bestselling author of Anna and the French Kiss, returns with a fresh take on the classic teen slasher story that’s fun, quick-witted, and completely impossible to put down.
Sounds good, right?
Top 5 Reasons to Read There’s Someone Inside Your House
The cast of characters — they’re all smart and strong and loyal to each other and there’s some great representation.
The murdery goodness — Stephanie has called this story murder-lite and I have to agree. There are some gory scenes, but they’re easy to skip past.
The sweetness — Just because it’s a thriller, doesn’t mean there are some swoony scenes and kissing.
The corn — Okay, I hate cornfields. Like haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate them. However, I can recognize that they’re quite effective at being scary and this book has a ridiculous amount of corn.
It’s Stephanie — I mean, yeah.
