Não esperava tanto desse livro pois é o primeiro livro de terror dessa autora (ela escreve mais romance, se não estou enganado). Porém fiquei muito feliz quando li o livro, principalmente quando soube que um dos personagens era trans, já que não se vê muita diversidade em livros de terror. Chega um momento que algumas partes da história se tornam previsíveis, mas a narração é muito boa e ainda tem twists, flashbacks etc. Li em algum lugar que esse livro parece ser “quando uma escritora de romance decide escrever terror”. É essa meio a ideia haha mas para quem gosta dos dois gêneros, super indico.
Sou meio suspeita para falar pois amo um bom slasher e amo um bom romance, então esse livro teve basicamente tudo que eu gosto. Eu estava super ansiosa e com medo de que ele não cumprisse minhas expectativas mas COMO CUMPRIU!!!! A cena de abertura é uma menina encontrando um daqueles timers de cozinha de ovo em frente a casa dela, o que já disse "slasher de qualidade" para mim. E além de tudo There's Someone Inside Your House tem todas aquelas teenage vibes de filmes como Scream e Halloween!!! Eu amei. De verdade, eu amei.
Very good at keeping you at the edge of your seat. I liked the combination of romance and horror. It helped to bring suspense in calm moments and also give a break to all the excitement happing. I was so anxious to finish. Liked it even in the first chapter.
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 was but I was wrong again. I never would have gotten this one.
So, Makani moved to town from Hawaaii < -- did I spell that right? And she lives with her grandma, she takes care of her and watches out for her spells. Makani had some stuff happen to her over on the island so her parents sent her away. Let me take a moment to say what jerks her parents were.
Ollie lives with his brother Chris, who is a cop, because their parents died years ago. Ollie also works at the little grocery store.
I loved these two together, I can't say it enough. I also loved Makani's friends. But the main story is of Makani and Ollie. There is plenty of time for romance in between killings. Am i right? yes...
I enjoyed the story very much. I liked how it wasn't cheesy. I loved how it was played out. I just loved it okay? If you didn't love it then that's alright because we are not all clones! And I don't feel like writing a long review so here you have it! Peace & Love!
Another phenomenal novel by Stephanie Perkins. I love her work. I love her characters, I love the world she builds, and I love how she writes love. It’s funny, it’s sexy, and it’s emotional. Most of all, it’s extremely relatable. Her stories make me fall in love again and again.
This novel is being marketed as a horror, thriller, etc. I’m not a horror enthusiast, but I hesitate to believe that this is a true horror novel. I’d argue it’s a romance novel with horror/thriller elements. I’d even venture to say horror is the sub genre, but the way the publisher is marketing this is going to attract and then disappoint hard core horror/thriller fans. Don’t be fooled. Don’t crack this book open unless you’re looking for a romance-horror hybrid that divides its time fairly even in both worlds.
I absolutely loved it through. The horror genre elements were more than enough to keep me in suspense and anticipation (and to keep me looking over my shoulder). As always, Perkins’s skillfully written character arcs are second to none, and I simply couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.
This is probably the first thriller book I've ever read and it's definitely the first Stephenie Perkins I've picked up. I loved every page of this exciting, fast paced novel. The story was captivating, the characters so well developed and un annoying. It got me out of my reading slump. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to dip their toes into the thriller genre. In fact, I recommend it to everyone!
