Q: What was the last book you started to read but couldn't finish?
A: Bram Stoker's, Dracula. I'm about 200 pages in... I just couldn't take it anymore though. It's not for me at all. I liked the movie, but not the book.

  1. Happy Birthday Freda! I hope you have a terrific celebration!

  2. Happy Birthday Freda! It was my birthday on Wednesday. Hope you are having a great day and get spoiled!

    The one and only Ivan has been on my TBR list until I saw the movie. The movie was gorgeous and I enjoyed it so much. But now I don't want to read the book anymore... It happens!

    Have a good weekend!

    Weekend Book Friends

  3. Happy birthday, Freda!
    I've heard wonderful things about The One and Only Ivan but have never read it, Hope you are enjoying it!

  4. Oh, I loved this book! It was so cute. I haven't watched the movie yet, but I've heard that was good, too. I hope you enjoy it! If you do, you should read The One and Only Bob. I haven't read that one yet, either (I'm such a slacker!), but I've been told several times that it's also good!

  5. Sounds good. Have a great weekend!

  6. This is a book that was extremely popular in my school library and in the school library world. I didn't read it because I don't like sad books or books with animals as main characters. I hope you enjoyed it.

  7. I like the look of this. My Friday post is here -

  8. Happy Birthday Freda!! Have a great weekend!

  9. Happy birthday, Freda! Hope you do something fun to mark the occasion!

  10. My daughter and I read the Applegate book a month or so ago and enjoyed it. The movie is good too. I hope you are enjoying it!

    I am sorry Dracula didn't work for you. I'm the opposite as you--I loved the book and can't stand any of the movie versions. LOL

    I hope you have a great birthday and enjoy the weekend!

  11. Thought about reading this. DIdn't know there was a movie. Cheers. have a great weekend.

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
