Well, Mexican Gothic was definitely not what I was expecting. Actually, because I don't read much gothic literature, I was not really sure what to expect. I think I'm hooked! This book was much more fast-paced than I thought it would be and I was completely carried away by the story. Make no mistake, there are some really creepy moments. I was listening to the audio book and gasped out loud a few times. Maybe don't read this book with lunch . . .
It is part fairy tale, part ghost story, and part cult expose. If you enjoyed The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell, then I recommend you read Mexican Gothic next!
