I’m excited to say that I was contacted by Khushboo Rani Mahato to review this book. Of course I said I would and received the PDF file, thankfully since I don’t have an e-reader. Of course I looked this up on Goodreads and this book just came out October 30th 2017. So that’s really awesome that it’s a newer book. Anyways! Here is my synapsis of the book.

Our main characters, Khushi and Ashwin, are brought together by social media and start developing a relationship. We fallow these two as they navigate through life and the challenges that are involved. We get to see the way this teenage couple works through very common difficulties that couples their age go through but also we get to see the high points of their relationship. This couple ends up facing a truly difficult decision. What will they do and how will they handle it?

As a disclaimer this is a really short book which makes it a little hard to review and also there are some grammatical errors.

I ended up giving this book four out of five stars. I’m not being generous with my rating just because I was asked to review it. I honestly really liked it. Let’s start with the positives. This is an adorable book. Plain and simple. It was really interesting to see the relationship between Khushi and Ashwin and how they handle things. I found the relationship to be really relatable which means I was on an emotional rollercoaster. There were times when I was cheering on the couple, times where I wanted to slap Khushi and Ashwin and tell them to grow up, times where I wanted to yell at them, and times where I wanted to cry. This was really impressive since its only 71 pages. Now for the negatives. This falls into the insta love trope. Or at least it seems like it does because of the length of this book. As I said above there are grammatical errors. This bothered me a fair amount mostly because I love languages. The only other thing that I didn’t like was how short it was. When I finished it I was left wanting another 200 pages and for the story to be more in depth because I feel like it could have been a really good longer book or duology.

If you are at all interested in this you can find it on Amazon. I really do suggest it.

Book Review: There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins (Spoiler Free)

If you didn’t know this is Stephanie Perkins first time writing a thriller. When I did read this book I did keep that in mind and maybe because of that I wasn’t as harsh on this as I am with authors like Stephan King who write a lot of thrillers.

In ‘There’s Someone Inside Your House’ we fallow a teenage girl named Makani who was sent to live with her Grandmother in Nebraska because of her dark secret and needing a fresh start. All of a sudden teens are being murdered. But why? Of course these murders cause the town to become very scared as to who is going to next because there is seemingly no pattern to the murders. Through all of this Makani is forced to face her dark secret. Will it change her life? Will the murderer be caught?

I gave this book three out of five stars which isn’t bad but its the lowest rating I’ve given a book so far this year. BUT at least it didn’t make it to the DNF list. On BookTube there are a lot of reviews on this book and of course I did watch some of these. So I did know that not everyone likes this book. Obviously I did buy it anyways and read it. This was a kind of meh read for me. I not really sure why. I was expecting a little more from this book if we are benign honest. Personally I wouldn’t call this a thriller I would call it a romance with some gore. This book would be great for younger people or anyone who doesn’t really read thrillers or is easily scared. If you do like to be scared this book won’t do it for you.
