a week and I already brought back Christmas ornaments and enlightened house I don t have any idea how much electric bill will coast next month but I m sure my husband will have the worst scream crying experience of his lifetime This book is insanely terrifying, spin tingling, horrifying, mind blowing, eyes popping, tear jerker nope it s not emotional, you cry like a baby because you realize you just pissed your pants when you were reading it and you re dying from humiliation I ve been there , paranoid, a dangerous dancing between Mexican folklore, horror stories and Darwin s theory of natural selection You want to throw the book and start running outside from your house I took 5 tours around Sunset Boulevard at the rush hour and was saluted by angry drivers flipping birds but I didn t care Running gave me endorphin and adrenalin I needed Here is the eerie, ominous, petrifying plot of the book Noemi is sent to High Place after her father gets an awkward and suspicious letter from her cousin Catalina, recently got married The letter implied that she s suffering from a mental illness or there s something really wrong about her husband Virgil s mansion So Noemi goes there to check her cousin s medical condition and learn the truth hid behind her letter.But as she takes a few steps to the house, she feels that something is really really wrong about the place she s introduced to Virgil s family resembles us Manson Family meets Adam Family Yes, they re completely weird, living by strict rules, having marriages in family, covering the house s walls with deceased brides And there is a big tragedy still affects the soul of the house a daughter kills her family members and commits suicide.So as a normal person, Noemi should cry for help and run as soon as she meets that eerie people, including control freak, demanding Florence, flirting and nasty Virgil, the maids who act like they swore to silence and don t forget about Howard reminds us of long time zombie extra of Walking Dead I think he s soul mate of woman in bath in Shining And only normal person of the family is na ve, artistic, shy son of Florence Francis who loves to talk about fungus.I m not gonna give much spoiler but this riveting, heart shattering, blood freezing, scary book has so many alerting elements including ghosts, sleepwalking, violence, bloodshed, disgusting and extreme vulgarity It s so different from the first book of the author but if you ask my opinion that did I enjoy it Of course I truly did I tested my pain endurance levels I screamed a lot and I was flabbergasted, speechless at some chapters And ending, yes it s volatile, blasting but also satisfying.This means here comes another gazillion five stars But quick note when you re reading this book, don t try to eat your mushroom pizza as like I did I don t like to write what happened to me afterwards This is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO twisted, unexpected, gory, exhilarating I don t know a sequel comes after that But if author decides to write it, I d be happily to consume it without thinking a second Sooooo much special thanks to NetGalley and Random House Publishing Ballantine for sharing this fantastic ARC and making my wish come true in exchange my honest review And I personally congratulate Silvia Moreno Garcia for this heart throbbing, extra ordinary book.bloginstagramfacebooktwitter I

you under like a riptide that doesn t loosen until you turn the final page Before I dive into my review, I think it s fair to note that the majority of this book is atmospheric, character driven, and the slowest burn imaginable for me, this worked spectacularly well, as I love to feel completely absorbed into the narrative in horror novels And yes friends, this is most definitely a horror novel I ll include content warnings in a spoiler tag below for those who are interestedNoem s father said she cared too much about her looks and parties to take school seriously, as if a woman could not do two things at once Maybe the reason why this slow burn worked so well for me is because I instantly connected with Noem she is confident, intelligent, and the life of the party When her father receives a suspicious letter from Noem s cousin, Catalina, he sends Noem to investigate and report back As expected, everyone involved getsthan they bargained for, and what begins as a handful of unusual occurrences slowly morphs into a whirlwind of horrifying circumstancesThis house, she was sure, was haunted She wasn t one for believing in things that go bump in the night either, but right that second she firmly felt every spook and demon and evil thing might be crawling about the earth, like in Catalina s stories One of the things I loved the most about this story is how vastly different the haunted house felt The author has successfully blended the traditional aspects of the old, decrepit, ghost filled residence and a new,modern aspect, one I won t go into detail of for fear of spoiling the big twist I think she nailed it on the head when she stated in her Goodreads interview that this book is for the reader who is both classy and trashy, because it has the high entertainment value that fast fiction lovers rejoice in, but it is also filled with beautifully devastating prose If you, too, have a love affair with all things that go bump in the night, Mexican Gothic should be your top priority this summer I cannot recommend this book highly enough to those who have a desire to spend long hours in a derelict house and an iron stomachThe truth was she was afraid of going to bed, of what nightmares might uncoil in the dark What did people do after witnessing the horrors they had seen Was it possible to slip back into normality, to play pretend and go on She wanted to think this was exactly the case, but she was afraid sleep would prove her wrongContent Warning view spoiler Sexual assault, incest, murder and gore, cannibalism, themes challenging white supremacy and eugenics, discussions surrounding the death of a parent and other family members, miscarriages and stillbirths, discussions surrounding suicide, and the consumption of alcohol and smoking hide spoilerMany thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy.
