the walls are painted a sterile white. Her mom jumps at the smallest noises and looks over her shoulder even when she’s the only person in the room. And when Sam steps out back to clear her head, she finds a jar of teeth hidden beneath the magazine-worthy rose bushes, and vultures are circling the garden from above.
To find out what’s got her mom so frightened in her own home, Sam will go digging for the truth. But some secrets are better left buried.

READ MY BOOK REVIEW
I just finished reading A House with Good Bones in one sitting and it was REALLY good! I’d say it’s a great mix of haunted house/curse/cheeky read that blends horror seamlessly. Even though I personally wouldn’t consider it horror because I wasn’t scared in any way it is the best category, I can think of to add it in. I wouldn’t necessarily categorize it as southern gothic either because there was nothing “gothic” about the house in my opinion. But alas, everyone will have their own opinion on that!
All in all, I really ate this one up! This book is told in first person POV through the eyes of a daughter who needs to go stay with her mother for a few months because she has been furloughed. But once she gets home, she notices her mother is acting different. Gone is the bright and charismatic mother she knows and in its place is a woman who is anxious, always looking over her shoulder, and losing a lot of weight. Chalking it up to a mental health issue, our MC looks for answers. But maybe science doesn’t hold the answers to this mystery. Could be that the house is playing tricks that neither of them could comprehend…
This is another solid novel from T. Kingfisher and probably my favorite so far! I do need to go back and read a few more of her books but this one was very enjoyable, and I flew through it in a few hours!
