The body horror? Very disgusting. EW. But, I was also enjoying it. What is wrong with me 😀??

“In a sense all dreams foretell events, but some more clearly than others.”


It has been a while since I last read a horror/thriller book, and I am fascinated with this one. With a mixture of gothic Latin theme, feminism acts and tight-gripping-to-the-end storyline, this book fascinates me so much. However, I understand that wordy narrations might not be a lot of people’s choice of reading companion, Silvia Moreno-Garcia did give me quite a pleasant experience for such a gruesome story.

Trigger warning: Incest, Rape Attempt, Gore, Violence, Murder, Gun Usage, Death.

4/⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
