🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃A wonderful gothic tale for the spooky season! Vampires best served cold and vicious. I really enjoyed this prequel to Dracula, it makes for a nice pairing.

I loved Dracul in the beginning, but the ending took a direction that I didn‘t really enjoy. But the ending saved it. Overall, it was a fun read and great for this time of year. Oh, and be sure to read the author‘s note it was really interesting.

“The prequel to Dracula, inspired by notes and texts left behind by the author of the classic novel, Dracul is a supernatural thriller that reveals not only Dracula's true origins but Bram Stoker's - and the tale of the enigmatic woman who connects them.” #BramStoker #Dracula #livingdead #creepy #spooky #HellFireClub

1. Ehm... no 😂 I don't even try an audiobook so no, definitely I've never listened a book on a CD
2. Sometimes, especially when I need to cancel all the noises around me (voices, TV,...). In these cases I choose instrumental music so I cannot sing the lyrics 😂

I started reading this and one thing is really distracting to me: it's using the framing device of being Bram Stoker's journal, but everything about it is deeply American. The way it's narrated, the spellings, the way Dublin is discussed, and the absolute worst is the dialogue. It'll mention Dublin Castle or whatever, then Cletus Stoker will say something and I'll be like “wait, where is this set? Mid 19th century Ireland or Mayberry?“

My answer changes every time I'm asked. This one isn't scary to me but it's one of my favourites. It's dark, gothic and VERY atmospheric
3. Sharks are NOT horror movie monsters!!!! Enough. With. The. Sharks!
4. Scary-sexy, non-sparkly, creepy ass vampires. I'm starting to get a feel for mermaids too. You know, the murdery kind 💀
5. Mugs, Funkos, booksleeves and just....weird, creepy shit you don't see anywhere 😂

#95 of 2020. I really liked this book. It has plenty of spooky gothic atmosphere fitting for a vampire story. This pairs up quite nicely with Dracula to expand on the original story. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Love love love, this novel! Perfect #Halloween read with scary sound ambience and giving out candy with nightly lit #pumpkins. The smell of bomb fires, I sat delightfully enthralled in this book. It's between 2 time periods for Bram Stocker, as a child and current a time he's being attacked by a mystery beast. Excellent writing style #creepy #suspenseful #scary 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃 5 pumpkins

This was a re-read for me and a book club pick because I really enjoyed it the first time around. The second time was not a let down! I am really interested in reading more from Dacre Stoker because I really enjoyed this vampire tale that read almost as a ghost story at times.

I finished it in time, yay! I thought the book was very much in line with the original Dracula. I adored the voices of the female characters, Ellen and Matilda, the best. This creepy, gothic novel got the atmosphere just right for Victorian vampires. The suspense and mystique surrounding the plot really sucked me in.

Dracula is an incredible book. This prequel is pretty darn good, too. Mysterious, creepy, well-written and fun to read. What if Bram Stoker‘s classic isn‘t fiction? In this creative book, Stoker and his siblings come together to uncover the mysteries of their very unusual childhood nanny...

This was my #GothicHorror for #Booked2020, and I am proud to say I put my big girl pants on and kept listening even after it got dark today!🦇

I have always heard if you like "Frankenstein", then you don't like "Dracula", and I guess I break the stereotype. I enjoyed "Frankenstein", but I absolutely adored this tale. So much intrigue! I love the language and it was nice finally getting to read a classic.

#WomenReading.

Melismatic I‘ve never heard that trope...but I agree, too. I prefer “Frankenstein”. 2y
Palimpsest I‘ve never heard that before. I do prefer Frankenstein, but I really like Dracula. I saw a ballet of Dracula by Michael Pink a few years ago and it was amazing. Admittedly in the novel the multiple blood transfusions became a little too repetitive for my taste, but I have a theory about that so I can forgive the redundancy. 2y
WriterAtHeart @Palimpsest - ohhh,a ballet! I love the ballet and I am sure it was absolutely amazing! 2y

Palimpsest It was! Wish there was a recording. Here is a snippet. 2y
ravenlee I can see some validity to that, but the style of the two novels is so very different. I tend not to like epistolary novels, so even though I love Dracula it always takes me a while to settle into it. I love Frankenstein too - maybe I‘ll reread them both sometime this year. 2y
