  1. Gasp! You didn't like Dracula?!! The horror!!

    Kidding. Lol! I read this in high school. Very difficult book to get through as a teenager, but I liked it a little bit. Excited to see that you read it! I'm so surprised. :)

    Congratulations on making it to the halfway point AND at the halfway point in the year!! Very cool. ^_^

    1. I expected Dracula to be...more Dracula, less Van Helsing? Also, I expected more scary but should've known better, since it was written in the 1890s.

      It was free on Kindle and I wanted to read something different to my usual. It's the advantage of keeping track of what you read :-)
