Did somebody say Gods of Jade and Shadow's author wrote an amazing gothic novel? I think I broke several nails when I clicked the request button several times. CLICK!CLICK! CLICK! I think I composed a special clicking request song and my nails start to bleed! Oh God I want this bloody so much!

'What do you get when you combine the best elements of Rebecca, Gone Girl, and author Silvia Moreno-Garcia? Mexican Gothic: a period thriller as rich in suspense as it is in lush ’50s atmosphere.'

UMM WAAAANT. ALSO, WHAT A COVER

Imagine if the fear and madness in The Yellow Wallpaper or the eerie unease of a du Maurier novel actually had supernatural roots. That is what Moreno-Garcia gives us in Mexican Gothic. The novel moves deftly from traditional gothic to gory horror without feeling forced. I really enjoyed this book. It would translate well to the screen!

I will be at C2E2 in Chicago on Feb. 28 discussing Mexican Gothic as part of the Penguin Random House Book Club: Del Ray Gothic Fantasy session. I’m very lucky to receive an ARC of Mexican Gothic in preparation for the book club. I will post my thoughts here once I have read my copy.

Thank you to Penguin Random House and C2E2 for this opportunity!

Boring, insubstantial, unwieldy, predictable, naive.
