FrightFall Read-a-thon

Last year during the FrightFall Read-a-thon I said that I might read Dracula for the required scary book and actually won Dracula in Love during the giveaway. And a few months ago I found Dracula My Love, so I thought it would be fun to devote this week to Dracula (I didn't get to read it last year) and Dracula retellings.

I also have a few library books waiting to be read, so this isn't a for-sure thing.
But there will be paranormals involved, so I will be in that realm. And maybe some Stephen King.

Other than that I'll be reading Twilight.
Although what can be scarier than that? According to a 6 year old I heard from: very. But it's alright because Edward will save the day.
It's so great to hear that kids no longer fear... what I feared? I don't know I started that off as sarcastic but I actually watched scary movies as a kid and didn't see them as a big deal. Although I was afraid of the traditional monsters. You know the classic Universal Horror monsters.
Which totally takes me back to when they focused on those and weren't so obsessed with zombies.
Which also brings me back to Dracula.


  1. There you are, Diana! Glad to have you with us again. I really liked Dracula in Love. I like your Dracula theme. Enjoy the scary this week!

  2. A Dracula week sounds awesome! Aww, the 6 year old describing Twilight sounds cute. Good luck with the read-a-thon!
