Dracula | Bram Stoker

Mehso-so

If a woman had written this, they would have deemed it melodramatic twaddle and disregarded it entirely. It was ok but not great.

Cinfhen Ha!! Love the blurb 1mo
Nebklvr @Cinfhen It was rather eye-rolly 4w

Jesstifies Just read it, it was really good, slow for me at the start, but became very comfortable!! 1mo
Stellina @Jesstifies I'm noticing it's a slow start so I'm happy to hear it picks up. Thanks for your opinion, that helps a lot! 1mo
KarmonR I was surprised to see how many forms of communication Stoker played with. 1mo

The title got cut off, but it‘s the same as the first line.

Graywacke Where do you find all these? Random, or do have some resource of only-magnificent-selected-poems 1mo
Lcsmcat @Graywacke The website poetryfoundation.org is my main online resource. But I also have several anthologies that I read from. (edited) 1mo

Graywacke @Lcsmcat I‘m impressed. 👍 1mo
Lcsmcat @Graywacke My mother had an English teacher who gave them an assignment to create a scrapbook of poetry, the only requirement for which was that they must love each poem they selected. She kept it and we used to pull it out and read them together. And I have a brother-in-law and a good friend who are published poets. It‘s just always been around. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1mo
Graywacke @Lcsmcat what a great idea - the scrapbook. That‘s cool - your mother, bil, and friend and the rest. And special. I once had a neighbor who became Texas state poet laureate one year - he was my inspiration to get in touch poetry. He meant a lot to me, although we have now mostly lost contact. I have hundreds of his books he cast off when downsizing. 1mo
Lcsmcat @Graywacke Cool! Is your friend published? You should share his work on here. 1mo
Graywacke @Lcsmcat yes. He has several books and a now dated selected work (tagged) 1mo
Lcsmcat @Graywacke I‘ll have to look for his work. 1mo
Graywacke @Lcsmcat hmm. I‘ll have to send you some suggestions. Fascinating guy. Maybe try 1mo
Lcsmcat @Graywacke Thanks! I‘ll look for them. (edited) 1mo
Graywacke His earlier stuff was years in the writing, decades actually, waiting till he thought he had enough prime stuff. There is a texan-southwest trend. Later he was more free flowing, I think. (The two I tagged are a little later). 1mo

The Prime Minister | Anthony Trollope

Pickpick

Just finished this the fifth book in Trollope‘s six book Palliser series. It can be read alone but was particularly satisfying since many characters from previous books pop up here and there. Trollope has become one of my go-to comfort reads.

Lcsmcat I love Trollope! 1mo
Ruthiella @Lcsmcat He‘s wonderful! Once I finish the Palliser books I have most of his stand alone novels yet to explore.😍 1mo
Centique I haven‘t read any Trollope yet! I‘m going to have to rectify that 😊 1mo
Ruthiella @Centique Try Rachel Ray for starters. It is a stand alone and short (for Trollope). If you like it there‘s 40+ more books for you to discover. If you don‘t you haven‘t invested too much time.😀 1mo
Centique @Ruthiella I‘ve stacked it! 🤞🤞 1mo

Kicking off #Victober with a classic I haven't read before: Lady Audley's Secret. Along with a cozy blanket and furry companion, I'm getting into the Autumn vibes as well. 🍁 🍂
Who else is participating in #Victober and what are you reading?

KarmonR I am going to use #victober as a motivator to revisit some Victorian poetry and perhaps an essay or two from the period. 1mo
julieloverofbooks Currently reading David Copperfield and loving it! 1mo
Stellina @julieloverofbooks Ohhhh, I'll have to add that one to my list! Thanks for the recommendation. 1mo
Stellina @KarmonR Sounds like a great plan! I've never participated before but I'm loving it. 1mo
