Noelle Kelly (corpsebride) | 23 comments I'm about midway through this, I'm really enjoying it. The setting is so atmospheric, dark and dank, in contrast to the vibrancy of the main character

Laurie   (barklesswagmore) | 505 comments How are you liking this one? I want to move into that creepy house and never leave! But only after ridding it of all of those loathsome people residing inside it.

Also what are your thoughts on the heroine in the early pages? I feared i would despise her . . . but I didn't :)


Kimberly (kimberly_3238) | 211 comments Hoping to start by the weekend.

i would come stay with you for a few weeks at a time if you moved in there. I thought Noemí would be ditsy and annoying but she really wasn't. I liked her.


Laurie   (barklesswagmore) | 505 comments I loved the characterization in this novel! Also, you'd be welcome any time in my creepy old victorian mansion when I hit the lottery, haha.

Kimberly (kimberly_3238) | 211 comments I put it on hold for some readalongs (with specific dates). Should be reading it by next Monday!!


message 28: by The Dekya (new) - added it

The Dekya (dekya) | 15 comments I'm at 30% of the audiobook. I think I shld have gotten an e-book. A lot of the Spanish words are lost on me(◞‸◟)


Ingerlisa | 3 comments I just finished this and all I can say was that this was not was what I was expecting but it was a lot of fun.


Mindy'sBookJourney (mindysbookjourney) | 15 comments I just finished the book and I loved it. it was dripping with gothic vibes which is what I was hoping for. the mansion was creepy and it felt claustrophobic. there was a great sense of mystery throughout. and the last third, climax and finale, were everything I could ask for from a horror novel. 5 stars for me.


Kimberly (kimberly_3238) | 211 comments Still haven't started, but I will be reading it before the end of the month!!


message 32: by The Dekya (new) - added it

The Dekya (dekya) | 15 comments I stopped the Audiobook, and got the ebook frm Kindle. It's $2.99 rn. I think it'll help me with the Spanish parts, unlike the audiobook


PaulaSatánder (paulasatnder) | 27 comments Kari, I thought the same as you regarding Noemi and Catalina


Sally | 1 comments I am never eating mushrooms again.


Kimberly (kimberly_3238) | 211 comments This book is officially in my November TBR list....as is Horrid! LOL! (At least I own both).


Kimberly (kimberly_3238) | 211 comments I'm finally reading October's group read!! LOL! I have Horrid lined up, but am still waiting on December's .... post office is overwhelmed. I'll be ending the year, and STARTING with woman horror authors!!
