Hey, thanks for joining The Online Book Club. Please introduce yourself to the group! We are currently nominating (voting will follow) for our March group read. As this is a new group, I'd love for you to invite your friends to join. Looking forward to discussing books with you, Gav.
Georgeanna wrote about Dracula: Hearts of Stone. “Jenny is a serious power for good to be reckoned with and I can't wait to read more about her, Allison, Piers Anthony(yes, the famous author), Michael, Lauren, Boa and Wei, Alexander and Tessy, Moon Diamond and poor Zacharia, and, of course, Dracula.”
Dracula: Hearts of Stone
After eons of darkness Dracula has come into the light. He must emerge from his suicidal hole to help mankind fight the bad vampires that prey on humans. The author Piers Anthony (now a vampire) tries to help him claw his way out, at the risk of his own existence. Meanwhile, a timid vampire named Michael falls for Lauren, a courageous vampire sheriff named Lauren. Even though Michael is frightened of her, he can’t help but pursue the red sheriff.
A 12-year-old girl named Jenny has turned out to be a vampire killer, protecting the innocent wherever she can. But as the evil ones take notice of her, she realizes that she might survive to her teen years.
It’s a tale of romance, fangs and valour.

I'm delighted to have you as a Shelfari friend! I saw Kubick's movie "A Clockwork Orange" many years ago and have been been haunted by it to the point where I was a little reluctant to read the book; but, the movie only served to enhance my enjoyment of the book. I could hear Malcolm McDowell's perfect voice as Alex throughout my reading! And the last chapter of the book really wrapped the story up nicely. It is an amazing work.
I didn't see any Ishiguro books on your shelf. I'd highly recommend "Never Let Me Go." A beautifully written story, with a haunting plot that is a great novel about coming-of-age and losing innocence.
"A Clockwork Orange" and "Charlotte's Web!" YOU are my kind of reader! Hope you don't mind if I follow your shelf. I'm sure you'll be able to help guide me when I'm ready to choose my next read. I just finished "A Clockwork Orange" and loved it!
I'm a fellow Canadian and often go by London to bring my children to University of Waterloo. We always get hit by huge snowstorms when travelling from Waterloo to Sarnia (and back), as we pass your gorgeous city, during the holiday season :) I have always enjoyed visiting though!
I notice we have similar tastes in books, and will enjoy following your reads.
Hey! Welcome to the group All Genres! This is a very friendly and chatty group-jump right in! Please feel free to post to the discussions! We would love for you to invite your friends to the group. Please note: the calendar for reading the genres and the group rules are located at the top of the page as part of the group description. November group reads are: Storm Front and Outlander
I hate it when I get conflicting reviews on books........especially series'. I think I'll put this one on the back burner and read it if I run out of other stuff. Which is not likely, at least for a long time. I just went a little crazy and bought 22 DTBs I found at flea markets and Goodwill and I have a ton of stuff on my kindle I still haven't read. I'm pretty much set for a while. I'd say through the winter at the least. But knowing me, I will buy plenty more before I need to. :D Books are my one splurge and, luckily, Mr. Angela doesn't begrudge me this.
