I am a bit rusty on writing reviews so please bare with me. It's been a while since I even attempted writing one as you can see from the lack of blog posts. However, here goes nothing!!

There's Someone Inside Your House is a YA horror novel about teenager Makani. Who is forced to go live with her grandmother in Nebraska. She has a dark secret that she thought no one would have to find out. However, when her fellow classmates start getting murdered, will she be able to keep hiding her secret? And will she be safe from the killer?

Having read some of the author's work before I was familiar with her style of writing. The story itself is really quick read and you can easily get lost in it. There is no denying that the author knows how to write. However, it was the plot itself that I struggled with. It was an ok read don't get me wrong. I read it in a day. I just didn't love the story.

I was expecting it to be a really good YA slasher book. I am a big baby when comes to horror movies and books. So it doesn't take much to freak me out. Sadly this one didn't have that scare factor that I was looking for. The mystery aspect of the killer was interesting at first. You want to know who and why. Sadly, the killer is revealed way too early for my liking and the motive just felt a bit................meh.

Now the characters themselves, they didn't really stand out for me. Usually when reading a book you can connect with at least one character. I couldn't with any of them. Maybe Ollie a little for his pink hair because I used to have pink hair but that's about it. Makani is the main character with a dark secret. Now when you are teased with this from the beginning of the book you are wanting something dark, something juicy right? Makani made a mistake. Was it super dark? Not really. I was really disappointed with the big reveal. A huge let down.

As I said the story is a fast paced read. It's a good book just to escape into a for while. Just for me personally it didn't have the fear factor a good horror should have.
