whodunnit? I theorize about who's doing the murdering in 'there's someone inside your house'+giveaway!
Thank you so much to Penguin Teen/Dutton Books for Young Readers for sending me an ARC of THERE'S SOMEONE INSIDE YOUR HOUSE by the amaaazing Stephanie Perkins! Be sure to add this book on Goodreads because you DEFINITELY want in on this action. And now... it's time for me to try and figure out whodunnit!
(Actually, let's first take a moment to talk about how FANTASTIC the cover of this book is. I mean LOOK AT IT. Creepy, murdery feels all wrapped in HOT PINK? It's like they made this cover just for me. Sometimes I just pull my copy out and feast my eyes upon the utter perfection.)
So. I looooove a good mystery. And I love character deaths. Therefore, I love murder mysteries. I ALSO just happen to love Stephanie Perkins' books. So did I love There's Someone Inside Your House? OBVIOUSLY.
I have finished the book at this point, and...woah. I loved it so much. BUT. For the purposes of this post, I shall pretend that I have only read the first half and give my thoughts on who I thought had done all the murderin'.
Right off the bat, I pegged Alex as the murderer. Did I have a reason? Nope, I really just wanted to pick someone. This book was NERVE WRACKING and I wanted to start pointing fingers right away because "I grew up reading Nancy Drew, I can figure this out!" Haha...no. I did keep Alex in the back of my mind though, but never really had a reason, more just a gut feeling. Eventually a different character began to seem reeeal suspicious to me though. I was, eh, 90% sure they were the killer. But I'm not going to name them because spoilers because OOPS they ended up dead right after I'd shifted my finger pointing. I'm a terrible sleuth. So by the time I'd finished the sampler of this book, I actually had NO FREAKING CLUE who the killer was, just my Alex gut feeling. I don't know how I ever won at Clue growing up.
So was I right? Was Alex the killer??? MWAHAHA I'm not telling. BUT I will say that everyone needs to preorder THERE'S SOMEONE INSIDE YOUR HOUSE right now because it is INTENSE. And I mean that in the best way. The scenes that Stephanie wrote that show the actual murders playing out super messed with my head and I couldn't walk into my kitchen alone at night because I was sure there would be a misplaced egg timer and then I would die. Which obviously means I'll be reading this book again any time I need a scary fix. So definitely make sure to preorder your copy at one of the links below and start counting down the days until Sept. 26!
