⭐️ Even the amazing Bahni Turpin couldn‘t save this one. Nothing felt believable. To elicit fear, there needs to be *some* plausibility. It was very surface-level; just gory, not scary nor suspenseful. I didn‘t care about the teenaged victims or the killer‘s (weak) motive. Maybe it‘s better on screen, but someone will have to let me know because I‘m not giving it two more hours of my life.

LibrarianRyan Dont give it the two hours. I didn't care for the book either, I read it when it first came out, but thought maybe Netflix would make it better. Nope. 2mo
MrT I agree with the above. I didn't even finish the book and the film was standard unimaginative slasher movie nonsense. 2mo
vivastory Message me on GR & tell me what you really thought 😂
Seriously though, I thought the beginning had some creepy moments but it's been largely forgettable & the trailer for the movie doesn't look like anything too special

britt_brooke @LibrarianRyan @MrT Thank you for the validation! 😅 2mo
britt_brooke @vivastory 😂 I‘m so mean. I totally hate-read it until the end, so I could write a scathing review. Funny thing is I loved her Anna and the French kiss books. I guess I‘m a sucker for YA romance, but not thoughtless slashers. 😅 I mean, why would the killer fuck with his friend‘s brain. Just gore for gore‘s sake. Made no sense. So dumb!! 2mo
Cinfhen Hahaha 🤣 #HardPass And I totally looked under the spoiler tag 😉 2mo

There‘s a serial killer in Osborne whose killing high school students. Makani and her friends have to find out who is before they kill them.
This book was okay. It had a kind of happy ending; they caught the killer and everything. I just think it was drawn out too long that it made it kind of boring.
There‘s the movie on Netflix. Like every adaptation, it doesn‘t quite follow the book.

Read this for scare pairs for #screamathon. And #scarathlon #spookoween #wickedthon. It was a good teen slasher movie in a book. Reminded me of Scream. Typical teens you see in scary movies - there is a killer on the lose so let‘s have sex, ignore the warning signs, and all go to the haunted corn maze dressed liked the killer. I wish there was a bit more of an epilogue. @StayCurious @4thhouseontheleft 225 pts #teamhendrix

Watched this movie to compare to the book for @4thhouseontheleft ‘s #screamathon week 1 prompt. The movie switched up so much of the story while staying true to the general feel of the book as well as keeping the same characters (although some of them have different personalities). I enjoyed both but definitely like the book more. The characters in the movie were less likable. But still a “fun” teenage slasher! 🌟🌟🌟

This was a really fun, high school slasher story that definitely kept me entertained. Reminded me a lot of Scream, which I‘ve always enjoyed, and I thought it had good character development. It also ended in a way that could leave it open for a sequel or could just be the ending. I‘d definitely read a sequel if it comes out! 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Reading this as half the Week 1 #screamathon prompt and ready to watch the movie on Netflix when it comes out!

Ooooo I really enjoyed this one!!
The killer isn‘t a mystery for the entire book but does get progressively more creepy throughout👹 Different than the thrillers I have recently finished which I enjoyed!
I felt all kinds of emotions as I got closer to the ending and it did not disappoint😮‍💨👏🏻

There‘s a killer on the loose and they like to put on a show🎭

This was a #blameitonlitsy purchase. Someone, I don‘t remember who, posted about this book recently and I immediately downloaded the audiobook not knowing anything else about the book except that it‘s going to be a Netflix show/movie soon and the audio is read by Bahni Turpin. I was not disappointed!

This was an intense thriller. It had me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire story. It kept me wondering what was going to happen next. It was written in away that had you drawn in at the very beginning. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a good scare. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

#99 of 2020. This is the first book I have read from Stephanie Perkins. I was drawn in to the story from the very beginning. This story was engaging and full of suspense. I liked Makani‘s strength and perseverance. I loved Ollie. Definitely worth reading. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Overall, this felt like a bit more gruesome and a touch too long, adult Fear Street novel. It wasn't bad, but it also isn't one I'll remember in the long run. The teenage characters annoyed me for the most part and they all felt superficial. The death scenes were detailed and entertaining at least. 💀

LibrarianRyan I agree. I was hoping for more. The idea was there, but the execution was lackluster. I believe she has a new one coming out soon, or just out. Have not decided if i am going to read it or not. 1y
Addison_Reads @LibrarianRyan I may read it eventually, but it's not one I'm going to rush to read. She has potential though so hopefully the new one shows growth in her writing. 1y

So I enjoyed the ending. And some of the characters were interesting. But I didn‘t care for the gruesome serial killer with a hollow excuse for killing. Maybe if there was more killer psychology to the book it would have been better. It felt more like a teenager going through their blood and gore writing phase.

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I didn't care much about the MC but I enjoyed the death scenes. 1y

I so wanted to love this book. I did not. This is between meh and pick; I keep flip flopping between the two. I disliked the main character & couldn‘t get into the chapters from her perspective (which were all of them except for the killings). The killings were inventive and tense. Those chapters, and Grandma Young were the saving graces of the book for me. It would make a great teen slasher 🎥 🍿.

If you‘re looking for a teenage horror movie in a book, look no further – this is a slasher flick in word form. And I really liked the premise of this one: someone is messing with people in their own houses before killing them. At times, the execution left questions, and the secret haunting the MC is underwhelming when revealed, but this book provided a nice escape from reality.

There‘s Someone Inside Your House is a good thriller. It didn‘t keep me guessing because the killer is revealed pretty early on in the story. I would say the end was a bit abrupt and left me with questions. Some of the killings were a bit on the gory side, so beware if you don‘t like graphic descriptions!! I would recommend.

3.5 ⭐ for my #triplespin book. This felt like the movie Scream - cast of teenagers, a brother cop, and mostly neglectful adults. The main story was a bit dull, but I quite enjoyed the murder scenes. Random thoughts: You can change your last name, but I doubt you're hidden when Makani is your first name. 2 dead teens and parents still leave their kids unattended?! Not enough mystery. Seriously #deadteenagers kept me going. Quick, scary fun.
