  1. What happens when an author of cute, fluffy romances writes a gory slasher novel I ll tell you You get possibly the most romance heavy, make out focused slasher novel you will ever read.Pretty much everything went wrong with this book If you want to read a story where most of the minor i.e we don t give a damn about them characters die gory deaths in between repetitive make out sex sessions, this is for you I think it is supposed to be scary, but it isn t scary at all Bloody does not equal scary [...]

  2. Stephanie Perkins definitely excels at writing fast reads, and this was no exception Now full disclosure, I m an absolute chicken therefore, I hate anything scary and thus have 0 knowledge of slasher films or horror films in general This book was basically the amount of gore and horror I can handle, sometimes it pushed me to my limits but for the most part it was fine Based on my limited knowledge of these kinds of stories, I know the general outline, and this felt quite generic to me The whole [...]

  3. Obvious CW for gore death, but also be aware that there are descriptions of severe hazing that may make some readers uncomfortable.As a previous fan of Stephanie Perkins, I knew horror would be out of her element, so I was interested to see what she could do with the genre I have to say, I wasn t disappointed but I also wasn t totally won over It was interesting without a doubt, but I m not sure it exceeded my expectations It kind of felt like a cheesy high school slasher film but in novel form [...]

  4. I know a good bit of people didn t like this book but I freaking loved it and that s all that matters D I loved Makani and Ollie I thought they were awesome together And well, they got me a little hot and bothered at times It was fanfreakingtastic So this is a teen slasher type book I m not sure where anyone ever got off calling it a horror book It s a mystery, suspense, young adult book But, I digress We have some nutter going around killing classmates And I thought I might know who the killer [...]

  5. I had a looooot of feelings about this book actually, about how people have reacted to this book So, I m going to get a rant out of the way Feel free to skip this paragraph if you don t like rants People told me it was going to be absolutely horrible, that no self respecting horror fan would enjoy it, that it didn t fit the horror genre, so on alright Lemme tell y all something I ve been obsessed with horror movies AND books since I was five years old, roughly I had a blast reading this book Do [...]

  6. This book could be divided into two different novels On one hand you have a diverse love story with a splash of haunting past and on the other you have someone going around and killing students in a small town during Halloween They work fine when they are two separate entities Together, they create a mess I still love Stephanie Perkins I just don t think her mind is messed up enough to create a good slasher.

  7. DNF 40%Was I supposed to be afraid of going to bed at night after finishing this book Was I supposed to be terrified Wasn t I Isn t that why this book is shelved under horror and described as Scream meets YA I remember watching the Scream movies vividly, because those did in fact scare me They didn t keep me from closing my eyes, but they did make me tense and jump at key moments.This book didn t do anything to me It is readable, that s true Stephanie Perkins has written and edited a couple of b [...]

  8. If you really truly are reading this because you love horror and live for slasher flicks, do yourself a favor and go read something else In fact, I m than happy to send you a few recommendations This, unfortunately, shouldn t pass for horror It s a sad excuse for horror with absolutely zero tension, suspense, thrills, or afraid to look under the bed scares Maybe it s my fault being my first Stephanie Perkins novel I know she s famous for her YA romance novels, which just isn t my genre I really [...]

  9. 3.25 I can t tell that I didn t enjoy this one I liked it but I didn t love it Although, at the beginning it felt like it would be one of those boring thrillers with a predictable plot, I was taken by surprise The suspense and the mystery made my heart beat uncontrollably in certain points of the novel It was an easy and fast paced read, best suited to those who want some adrenaline in their veins.Great role in the plot played the friendship between Makani, Darby and Alex They are those friends [...]

  10. As long as it s got your name on it, Stephanie Perkins, I ll read it Even if it gives me nightmares.

  11. So missleading Literally not at all what I expected.I have way to many questions still and feel really confused.I LOVED the romance and the dialogue was fun but apart from that it was odd.Sentences just seemed like they had been placed awkwardly and the flash back scene was odd I just feel like a lot of this didn t need to be in it.I am so sad that i didnt like this

  12. UPDATE JUNE 10, 2017.Now that was some wicked, delightful, bloody fun I enjoyed this book so much Probably than I intended to And it s extremely short The book barely clocks in 300 pages However, it is an arc so there s that but I actually, genuinely, enjoy this format a lot better The main character is Hawaiian and there s some great LGBTQ representation in the book as well I could relate very well with the main character, whose name is, Mariko Young Going to a midwestern state after growing u [...]

  13. Content warning Several scenes of descriptive gore Mention of suicide.Representation The main character is African American and Native Hawaiian There is an African American side character her grandmother and a trans male side character.Issues The trans side character is deadnamed twice in the finished copy I read pgs 11 83 , despite this having been brought to Perkins s attention as offensive by early readers of the ARCs She did apologize in June of 2017 and said she had corrected it and it woul [...]

  14. Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum Words cannot even express the amount of joy it brings me when I am the first of my friends to read something Well, when it s something I liked being the one to burst the bubble when a highly anticipated release turns out to be a turd kinda sucks Anywho, when I saw this blurb Scream meets YA I had much excite But then I saw the next part in this hotly anticipated new novel from the bestselling author of Anna and the French Kiss Oh noes My experience with An [...]

  15. 4.75 I d heard mixed things before going into There s Someone Inside Your House, so I was a little apprehensive before reading I ve adored everything I ve previously read from Stephanie Perkins and didn t want to be disappointed Thankfully, I m very happy to say this book was no different, I wasn t disappointed at all In fact, I absolutely loved it There s just something about Stephanie Perkins writing that never fails to pull me in from the get go It s simple yet lovely, to the point and grippi [...]

  16. y all should probs not even bother with this one tbh.a small part of me felt like I was setting myself up for disappointment getting into this I mean, a YA horror gore fest written by a predominantly contemporary author doesn t it sound just a lil bit too good to be true like, something you might dream of once in a blue moon and you echo a small sigh cuz u know it s probably never gonna happen or be filled with the mind numbingly grizzly details of blood and guts and gore ur fucked up little min [...]

  17. Actual Rating 2 1 2 Stars Somewhat entertaining, a few great ideas that go underdeveloped, not much dramatic tension Or like, any It s, uh, basically a contemporary where people die and every fifteen percent it gets really messed up GOOD THINGS Perkins has stepped up her game on avoiding tropes, surprisingly Makani is definitely not the stereotypical virginal blonde protagonist she s biracial, for one, she sort of hates herself and isn t afraid to take action, and she s also not a virgin There s [...]

  18. 1.5 starsI received this copy from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.The story is about a girl who has escaped her past and her parents have sent her to live with her grand mother After she begins her high school, some of the students were murdered one by one and she doesn t know who is next in the list Makani main character and her friends try to identify some of the similarities between the victims to know who will be the next target There is also a romance story lin [...]

  19. I was terrified to read this book bc it seems the general majority of readers had HATED it and I was like nooooooooooooooooo not Stephanie perkins, I don t wanna have to cancel 2017 just yetAnd TURNS OUT, it wasn t THAT badHere s the deal, GO IN WITH NEGATIVE EXPECTATIONS.Yes kids you heard me Keep those expectations as low as they are with your math scores okay, trust me on thisAlso know that the thriller aspect of the book is HEAVILY garnished with contemporary lit like LOTS of it If you re lo [...]

  20. Ok, so I think a lot of people will like this book if slasher stuff is their thing I m leaving a rating off because I called it a DNF horror or anything stressful just realllly isn t for me I tried I do love this author, but am going to stick with something lighthearted like Anna and the French Kiss Thank you to the publisher for sending me an ARC.

  21. hoping there s a british french american boot wearing hottie in this oned also that he doesn t dien t fail me this time, Perkins.

  22. 1.5What a disappointment.Warning mild spoilers.After this one I m done with Stephanie Perkins At this point I don t know why I liked Anna and the French Kiss two years ago, maybe if I reread it now I d hate it as much as the other ones I really wonder what I liked about it back then.Her characters and the relationships feel unreal to me, that s why I can t enter the story completely They feel flat and one dimensional just like paper They live It s okay to me They die That s okay to me too I don [...]

  23. Meh This was whatevs I didn t hate it, but I definitely think Stephanie Perkins is better at writing fluff than gore.

  24. So this book is one of the surprises of the last couple of years for me I didn t really expect to like it that much but daaaaammmmmnnnn It s like one of my favourite books now It was soooo creepy and the tension just builds up so perfectly I can t even explain to you what a mistake it was to read this alone downstairs late at night Here is a true story One night I stayed up quite late reading this book and I got freaked out so I decided to escape upstairs and try to sleep I popped into the bathr [...]

  25. 4.5 starsI had been hearing Stephanie talk about her upcoming YA horror for a while and I was so excited for it So when I saw it on EW, I downloaded it immediately and got to reading.I loved this cast of characters They re smart and strong and loyal to each other Makari and Ollie are adorable and there s definitely the standard spark and banter that we expect from Stephanie s words There s also some great diversity represented as well as a thread of inner monologue from Makari about asking about [...]

  26. First off everyone needs to contain their horses I mean it s a freaking YA horror book here, if you think you were going to get thoroughly creeped out, then you probably should have shot your way over to the big guns like Stephen King or Clive Barker I for one don t get scared with books or horror flicks, so I can t say whether this was scary or not I will say the character development was my favorite part, and I absolutely loved the cute romance Plus, yes, there is gore descriptions which worke [...]

  27. I know there are some unsavory reviews on this book but honestly I really enjoyed my evening of reading it Yeah, it did remind me of Scream meets I Know What You Did Last Summer but I liked those movies also so I m not going to knock that aspect This is a quick read that is very different from Perkins other books but honestly I hope she writes of these teen slasher type books Overall, a quick read that I honestly really enjoyed
