Vampires and werewolves set in a steampunk Victorian London. This was a lot of fun and I look forward to reading the rest of the series. #pop19

It's a classic for a reason & a lot different than what I expected! Riveting, cleverly-constructed Gothic fiction that also works as a mystery. Love the forms of text incorporated into the narrative. Underlying it are issues percolating around womanhood, female sexuality, & fear of Others. One of those interesting novels that is a compelling read despite the author's iffy politics (that was in view in full force in The Lair of the White Worm).

batsy Illustration by John Coulthart. More here http://www.johncoulthart.com/feuilleton/2018/06/01/illustrating-dracula/ Thanks for the buddy read @Cinfhen @erzascarletbookgasm @Sace 🖤🦇 21h
Libby1 I agree. This book surprised me. 21h

batsy @Cathythoughts Thanks Cathy! Like @Libby1 says it surprised me. Very atmospheric & kind of with a transnational mystery element with the multiple characters & travel, etc. 21h
Cathythoughts Yes, that sounds good .. being surprised! I never knew Bram was short for Abraham ( I heard it on the radio .... must be true 😆 21h
batsy @Cathythoughts Oh, I didn't know that either! Why didn't I think of that ... I was thinking Bram's such a unique name 😂 21h
Cinfhen Beautiful review. I agree this book was a wonderful surprise. BTW: cool tidbit about Bram‘s name @Cathythoughts Abraham makes sense 20h
LauraBeth Always love your reviews. I‘ve never had a desire to read this but you make it sound compelling. 20h
erzascarletbookgasm Wonderful review. 👏 Haven‘t read The Lair and I think Bram Stoker has a nicer ring to it. 😁 20h
Earlene I finished this a couple of weeks ago and Inreally enjoyed it. I especially liked that you got so many facets of the story from different characters. 20h
batsy @Cinfhen @erzascarletbookgasm Thanks for the motivation to read this 😘 19h
batsy @LauraBeth Thank you! I wasn't interested in this before but the Litsy love for it made me reconsider and I'm glad I did 🙂 19h
batsy @Earlene Yes! That really kept the narrative momentum going. 19h
Naj Lovely review. I absolutely adore this book. 19h
batsy @Naj Thank you! 🙂 19h
Hamlet Great review... again! 16h
batsy @Hamlet Thanks! 🙂 16h
ctboeheim The original has so much more depth than all of the remakes and adaptations. They‘ve given the story an undeserved reputation. 15h
UwannaPublishme Great review! And thanks @Cathythoughts for the trivia about Bram‘s name. Who knew? 😆 15h

Yesterday I had a little time to myself. My rehearsal ended early and I needed to get lunch before heading home. I may have tripped and fallen into BN on the way to lunch and ended up with this #bookhaul. Well Met was so fun I needed my own copy, and Jeaniene Frost comes recommended by Ilona Andrews, who have never led me astray before. Not sure when I‘ll get to them...

Crazeedi You should watch where you're walking! Hope it didnt "hurt" too much falling in BN, ?❤ 1d

I love this book and the whole series so much. I‘ve thoroughly enjoyed this reread with my ears, and just like the previous times I‘ve read these books, I‘m left feeling bereft now the series has ended. They‘re so, so good I just want more! 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤

Both are TBR. Here's the description of Amatka from an online article:
"The eponymous city...is one of four colonies, a wintry, agricultural commune that grows fungus for sustenance. No one talks about the fifth colony, the one that was lost so long ago.."
I was immediately intrigued by Rowe's "Enter, Night" when I heard it described as a Canadian 'Salems Lot. #ghosttown #MOvember @Cinfhen

Cinfhen Enter night immediately made me think of Metallica 🎶Exit, light

vivastory @Reggie I noticed your review when I was looking through the posts after I posted this. I'm hoping to get to it soon. I found out about it through one of Adam Casares' book recommendation videos on YouTube. 8h

I'm not going to feel guilty about folding the laundry slowly. It gave me an excuse to keep listening.

I'm thinking I should start reading the book though because I'm at a section that feels a little rambly (Lucy at Whitby and her proposals.) I'm having trouble focusing on the audiobook. @Cinfhen @batsy @erzascarletbookgasm

Cinfhen I did switch back and forth between book & audio but I think the audio was way more compelling 2d
erzascarletbookgasm Yeah perhaps you can alternate between print and audio. 2d
Sace @Cinfhen I love the audio, but I just hit a bit I didn't like as much on audio. I bought the audio with the Kindle edition so luckily it syncs, making switching back and forth very easy. 2d
batsy I read it in print, but I had some trouble sorting out that particular section involving Lucy and her suitors, as well! I had to reread that one letter in particular because I realise that The Guy was not the guy I thought it was 😂 2d

I have started a re-read before the new book comes out. I am doing a slow re-read with The Cincy Underground Facebook group, which suits me at the minute timeline wise, though I may jump ship to the Goodreads read along with Kim at some point!

It‘s been ages since I read these, and I had forgotten a lot! But I love Rachel, Ivy, and Jenks, and I can‘t wait to see more of Al. I never warmed to Trent or Nick though, Rach has terrible taste in men!

thegirlwiththelibrarybag Ahh, I also started a reread... I should get back to it! I didn‘t know there was going to be a new book 2d
Bookworm54 @thegirlwiththelibrarybag There are 2! American Demon is expected to come out in June next year :) it‘s set between the end of the last book and the epilogue 2d
thegirlwiththelibrarybag Ok! I stopped reading originally after one of my favourite characters was murdered - but I read at least the first two earlier this year - hopefully will get back into it (I‘m pretty bad at drifting away from series) 2d
