Waiting on Wednesday: ‘There’s Someone Inside Your House’ by Stephanie Perkins

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly series hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases we can’t wait to get our hands on.

This week’s Waiting on Wednesday pick is the young adult slasher novel we never knew we wanted: There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins.

We’d heard stirrings of a Stephanie Perkins young adult horror novel for around five years now, and everything from the title to the description and even the cover were definitely worth the wait!

Seriously, do yourself a favor and zoom in on that cover’s subtle wallpaper.

There’s Someone Inside Your House will finally hit shelves on September 12, 2017. BRING. IT. ON.

Welcome to Bookstagram, a hashtag based portion of Instagram occasionally referred to as Instabook, where bibliophiles around the world take and share book photos.

Pretty self-explanatory stuff.

My November additions to Bookstagram marked the beginning of my love affair with my new iPhone and my hate affair with the lack of natural sunlight while I’m home.

My Year in Reading: Cassie-la’s November 2016 Wrap Up

november-2016-book-wrap-up

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany (★★★☆☆)

I went into the so-called eighth book in the Harry Potter series with very low expectations, which was definitely the right move. While I found the beginning of the play to be enjoyable, by the second half, I was tired of the shenanigans and the ridiculous dialogue. It was acceptable fan fiction, but it was no Harry Potter.

Twisted Palace by Erin Watt (★★★★)

The final book in the ridiculously over-the-top Royals series has arrived and it ended with a bang — albeit an extremely predictable one. From the Pretty Little Liars-esque cliffhanger in Broken Prince, to all the open-ended love stories, the duo calling themselves Erin Watt make sure to tie everything up in a nice little bow.

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (★★★★½)

The second and last book in Leigh Bardugo’s amazing Six of Crows duology will break your heart in all the best ways! Get ready for romances, friendships and alliances to be tested and for your still-beating heart to be ripped from your chest. No one is safe from Bardugo’s clutches, and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
