Really creepy example of an #evilwoman , made creepier by the fact that this fictional tale is based on real life Hungarian Countess and serial killer Elizabeth Bathory who was said to bathe in the blood of her young victims (hence the title and nickname). It alternates between 17th century Hungary and a present day storyline with a descendant of Countess Bathory who may be influenced by his relative from beyond the grave 😱 #rockinmay @Cinfhen

Billypar @TobeyTheScavengerMonk Wow- didn't realize she was a Hellboy villain. Is she in any of the movies or just the comics? 3y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk A character inspired by her is the villain in the Hellboy Animated: Blood & Iron movie and he has to battle a sentient torture device that Bathory used in the Wake the Devil comic. 3y
Billypar @TobeyTheScavengerMonk oh wow...I have got to get acquainted with the Hellboy series 😐 3y

Throwback to last Sunday when I started these two books and then forgot to post the picture I took at Starbucks. 🤓 #TBT?

I'm struggling to get into The Blood Countess, but that may be because I haven't had a stretch of time to dedicate to it. #justkeepswimming 🐠

CherylDeFranceschi It is most horrifyingly creepy if you keep going. He's an amazing author. I hope you get into it! 3y
LibrarianRyan Okay @Bookzombie is there a secret to getting the paragraph breaks that isn't just hitting the space bar a lot? 3y
Bookzombie @CherylDeFranceschi Thanks for the encouragement! I'm going to give it some time this weekend. 🙂 3y
Bookzombie @LibrarianRyan I cheat! 😬 I sometimes type up what I want to say in Notes on my phone, which allows me to have paragraphs. Then I just copy and paste into Litsy. 3y
LibrarianRyan @Bookzombie okay I do that too with my google drive. When I dump a lot of books at once that is why. I type faster on a full keyboard. 3y

Here is my October TBR, a mix of books I own and library books. I'm excited for #scaretober! #mostanticipatedreads #booktober

BekahB Anna Dressed in Blood, After the People Lights Have Gone Off, and Mongrels are all fantastic books! Blood Countess looks good. I love reading books with Bathory as a character. 3y
Bookzombie @BekahB I can't wait to read them. I have had Blood Countess on my shelf for years. Lol. Time to read it. 3y
