Count Dracula’s Reading List

The quote that I talked about here came to me again as I re-read the same book.  The quote is about Dracula (by Bram Stoker).

This is a what-are-we-reading post that I will try to fancy up by relating books I have read to Dracula.

Undertow by Elizabeth Bear (assassin!)

The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton (relevant to Dracula’s un-aging nature)

The Bright Side vol. 1: Dee & Em by A. Francis (death and philosophy!)

MFK by Nilah Magruder (who is the real monster?)

Gods, Monsters, and the Lucky Peach by Kelly Robson (ditto-ish)

The High King’s Golden Tongue by Megan Derr (uh… people wear fancy clothes.)

Sleepless Vol. 1 by Sarah Vaughn, Leila Del Duca, and others (gorgeous, gorgeous clothes; people that are only mostly dead; a little stabbing)

That’s all I got.  What’ve you got, readers?

    I just read Kameron Hurley’s God’s War books and found them very good (though also fairly violent). Only a decade behind the curve! Also, I pre-ordered KJ Charles’ latest, which is out tomorrow.

      We have a not-secret love for KJ Charles. I just read Unfit to Print and put the newest on my amazon list.

      I haven’t been able to get into Kameron Hurley but I’m willing to believe the scads of other people who think she is great.

    Victoria Sweet ~~God’s Hotel, also wrote Slow Medicine. Not fiction. Real life changes in medical treatment where time is allowed for patients not 15 min slots including doctor walking down the hallway. She was a doctor in S.F.’s Laguna Honda Hospital….

    Currently reading “Winter in Madrid” by CJ Sansom. English people in the Spanish Civil War. Pretty good so far. Can’t link to Dracula though – maybe blood sucking bourgeoisie vs the comrades?

    Also listening to the newest Ian Rankin – John Rebus is perhaps like Dracula in the sense of being impossible to kill off?

    Totally aside from that – I’ve been trying to comment on Ana Begins & my comments won’t publish! All I wanted to say there Ana (if you read this!) is that I’ve seen both The Lion King & Matilda with my kids and while both were great, we loved Matilda more. I’ve actually seen Matilda twice – which is unheard of for me to pay to see a show twice, that’s how much I loved it.

    Making a note to myself that our library needs to add Nilah Magruder and Elizabeth Bear!
