There's Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins

If you're looking for a book to really mess with you, look no further! There's Someone Inside Your House is a psycho thriller like no other!

The book is told primarily from the point of view of the main character, Makani Young, who recently moved from sunny, beautiful Hawaii to dull, cold Nebraska. Like all main characters, Makani is hiding a part of her past that haunts her. But now it seems that Nebraska will be just as haunted as students are being brutally murdered for no apparent reason. When the killer attacks Makani, she begins to question if the killer knows her true identity.

The few chapters that are told from the points of view of others are the victims last few minutes before being brutally slain. You learn how the killer messes with the victims minds, and has been for quite some time. For one, the egg timer keeps appearing even though she has put it away a few times. For another, he wakes up to his house being rearranged. I won't lie; any time my keys show up …

A Big Review: Part 2

So we're going to play some catch up here because I've been a bad blogger. And I'm extremely sorry. I could give you every excuse in the book, some are valid, some are not, but it cannot be denied that I have neglected my books and my readers. So I'm going to do some mini-reviews for the books I've read. Mostly, they're mini because it's been so long since I've read them and it would be a disservice to you and to the author to write a full blown review when I don't remember all the details. But I do remember how each of these books made me feel, and that is what these will be based off of. So I hope you enjoy!

Like a lot of people, I read this in high school; I really wanted to read it again so see how I felt about it as an adult. I'm sad to say that it was better in high school. I also know that I didn't fully read it in high school; Sparknotes were very essential to me then. I r…

#GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso(Read on May 5th, 2017)


I read this because I started the Netflix series and I wanted to have the background. The book had been sitting on my shelf for probably over a year and had picked it up many times to read it, but never did. I loved this book, and I wish I had read it sooner, but I think I read it at the right…
