Interesting list of books.
It’s supposed to be so humid tonight. This has been one hot summer.
Please forgive the intrusion.
“I can’t wait to read more.” “If you like Dracula this is a must read.” “I found myself HEARING the characters in this story.” “One of those rare occasions when you feel you did not go wrong with an indie.” “I can’t wait to get the next in the series.”
Dracula: Hearts of Stone
Dracula is a good guy in this adventure of romance, wizards and fangs; lots of interesting characters and humor, including the author Piers Anthony. A 12-year-old wizard named Jenny is trying hard to figure it all out. A very special Siamese cat named Moon Diamond and his friend Zacharia. A vampire dog named Tessy. Alexander is a handsome red sheriff that serves with honor. Wei and Bao are Chinese sheriffs with style and a passion for the law.
There’s an extraordinary female sheriff that’s being pursued by a shy vampire, but she does find him interesting. I find that a book is always better when the work is interspersed with humor.
Please check out my author page for excerpts:
Welcome to the group based on the book 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die.
There is a general explanation of the group under the discussion thread GROUP GUIDELINES.
The books of the month (BOTM) that the group is reading are pinned to the top. June’s BOTM are The God of Small Things by Roy, Wide Sargasso Sea by Rhys and Midnight’s Children by Rushdie. I will post new discussion questions in June.
We are also starting something new. It will be a Long Read consisting of books from the list that are greater than a 1000 pages. The group will be starting with War and Peace by Tolstoy which will be a May, June, July read.
