The Mysteries of Udolpho | Ann Radcliffe
post image

Once I got over just how long this novel was, I was on a roll. The heroine certainly got her money's worth out of adventure. Read my review here:

Pickpick

This #GothicHorror met all my expectations and more. This truly haunted ghost story echoes parts of Daphne du Maurier‘s Rebecca, but walks it‘s own path. Set in the wake of the Mexican War of Independence, the complex web Beatriz, new mistress of Hacienda San Isidro, finds herself in is far more fraught than she ever thought it could be. She will face the malevolence in her new home with the help of an unusual priest.

“Our relationship was founded on one thing and one thing only: my world was a dark, windowless room, and he was a door.”

Just started my #GothicHorror read for #NSR22 I‘m only 4 short chapters in and the vibes are strong with this one! It‘s already very atmospheric and I‘m rooting for this scrappy soul. And really, you can‘t get a more gothic start to a marriage than this!

I enjoyed this, gothic horror is not my favorite-they tend to just move too slow for me-but I did enjoy this. I think Moreno-Garcia is becoming a new favorite author for me! 4⭐️
One of the #Roll100 picks!

“When the novel opens, Emily St Aubert is enjoying the kind of innocent, idyllic life that any reader of Gothic fiction knows will soon deterioriate into terror and superstition as her circumstances change.“

My last read of 2020-a strange read for a strange year. It was a slow-burn, gothic horror in the beginning-which I loved. Then it took a turn and was like a separate book. I was a little fatigued and unimpressed by the end.
