ARC Review: Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

If you’re looking for a compelling and excellently plotted addition to Gothic horror set in 1950s Mexico, look no further than Mexican Gothic!

I devoured this book in one sitting; I simply couldn’t pry my eyes away until the end… CREEPY house, CREEPY people, & excellently plotted Gothic thriller set in 1950s Mexico that you won’t be able to put down!

The Bone Houses by Emily Lloyd-Jones

What an enjoyable, original, and fast-paced read! I’m really glad that OwlCrate included this book in the September 2019 box (just look at the cover!)!

It’s a weird feeling writing a full review six months after reading a book, but trust me when I say that The Bone Houses is a memorable read that’s stuck with me long after finishing it. It is truly a crime that more people aren’t talking about this fantasy horror with a soft relationship and truly touching sibling relationships!

Guest Review: Whispers in the Dark by Laurel Hightower

Greetings friends, I am super excited to announce the first guest review on Reader Voracious! Lilyn from Sci-fi & Scary read Whispers in the Dark and loved it so much that they needed to write a review for it. The problem? One of the SF&S contributors already reviewed it and was looking for a blog to host their review. I was more than happy to lend Reader Voracious for the day to give you a bonus review, so please give Lilyn a warm welcome!

Lilyn’s Review

I normally don’t review books by authors that I ‘know’ (even if it’s just a loose connection on Twitter). I feel like there is a potential for bias there as soon as you develop any sort of affection for them as a person. It’s gotten cracks about me being a princess in a white tower before, but I don’t care. We all operate to our own personal standards of what we’re comfortable with.

Well, this is the princess coming down from her white tower and breaking her own rules to tell you all that You Need to Read This Book because it’s just that damned good.

Rules for Vanishing by Kate Alice Marshall

☠️ You can read an excerpt on PenguinTeen.com!

Holy moly, ghouls and pals! This book. I was looking for a spooky read and this faux-documentary style story in the vein of The Blair Witch Project looked incredibly promising. Not only does it deliver on the spookiness, but it is so much more than that. If you are a fan of found footage and mixed media storytelling, please add this one to your October TBRs.

“FIND THE ROAD. FIND THE GATES. FIND THE GIRL.”
