It’s here! It’s here! It’s finally here!

If you wanted to know what my most anticipated read of the year is, it’s this beautiful book I’m holding up right here: The Daughter of Doctor Moreau by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. I couldn’t be happier to finally hold this incredibly beautiful book in my hands!

To provide a little bit of history, I am a huge fan of Silvia Moreno-Garcia and ever since I finished reading the last page of Mexican Gothic with our book club, The Top Shelf Society, I have wanted to read another gorgeous, historical fiction SMG gothic horror. Mexican Gothic is beautiful, tragic, strange, and has very important themes discussed within. SMG’s writing is enchanting and we feel this book has the potential to sweep us off of our feet yet again.

And finally … it’s here! Gah!

Yes, my expectations are very high. It’s SMG, after-all! Regardless, I’m just so excited to enter another one of SMG’s worlds and spend a little bit of time with with our heroine, Carlota, as I turn the pages of this gorgeous read. We will likely be doing a buddy read, details to come.
