The Daughter of Doctor Moreau by Silvia Moreno-Garcia 🌟 ARC Review 🌟

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!!

This is another remarkable read by Silvia Moreno-Garcia! If the authors name doesn’t catch your attention then maybe the title will; The Daughter of Dr. Moreau. How does this not leap out and beg to be read and enjoyed? As soon as I saw this book, especially with such a beautiful cover, I was on it… And it did not disappoint!

Carlota is the only child of Dr. Moreau and leads a simple but elegant life on their property of Yuxaktan. Among the hybrids and beautiful plant life lies secrets that even she cannot guess at. When a rich and powerful young man comes seeking her attention this acts as a catalyst for life changing events.

I highly recommend this as a gorgeous and beautifully told story that I was lucky enough to luxuriate in

🌟Arc Review 🌟 The Candy House by Jennifer Egan!

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!

One of my favorite books has been A Visit from the Goon Squad for a long time. So when I saw that there was a new book that is related and by this ingenious author, I could not wait to read it. And I was not disappointed!

I love these short tales going from character to character, all somehow relative but in different times, and this complex weaving of these different stories creates a beautiful full picture by the end. And, if this impacts me like Goon Squad, I will be caught in moments years from now thinking of these characters and their lives, their thoughts and opinions

No, it is not straightforward. My suggestion to readers, as is always my suggestion with stories like this, is to just let go of preconceptions and just go with it. This book is incredibly insightful and delves deeply into some very important issues like authenticity and something I’ve asked myself a lot in the last few years… Are we losing touch?

Great read. Highly recommend A Visit from the Goon Squad. It’s a provocative style of story telling but I’m hoping people read this and see the big picture the author is painting.

Comes out April 5th!
