Here is my 56...

Q:  Mary Shelley's Frankenstein vs. Bram Stoker's Dracula. Which classic horror tale is scarier?
A:  Having read neither and only seeing the film, okay, sort of a lie... I tried to read Dracula but I fell out of love with it 100 pages or so in and that sucker is a big book. I had every intention of getting back to it one day but that day hasn't come yet. Based on the movies, or tales itself, I go with Dracula though. Bela Lugosi kept me up at night as a small child when I saw him perform the role. Frankenstein never really scared me, more intrigued me in the aspect of science.

  1. I've heard about All Adults Here, but I haven't read it. The quotes are interesting. Have a great weekend! :-)

  2. Sounds like a good one. Have a great weekend!

  3. I haven't read Frankenstein or Dracula either but I think the vampire movies are more scary.

  4. That opening is quite something! This sounds like a nice, contempary read, like you said on Insta. For me it's got to be Frankenstein, not cause the Creature itself is scary per se but because I love what Shelley does with language and it's such a harsh critique of society! Thanks for hosting and have a lovely weekend :)

  5. All Adults seems like a good read yes! I like the cover too.

    I have read both Dracula and Frankenstein, and find Dracula way scarier than Frankenstein. Frankenstein is a bit more of a science project I would say.

    Hope you are well Freda and that you will have a good weekend!

  6. I like the cover and the quotes. Looks like an interesting read!

    I've read both Dracula and Frankenstein. I like Dracula better, and I find it scarier. Frankenstein is much more disturbing though, if that makes sense.

  7. I was a bit confused by the different names in the quotes, but clicking through the Amazon link, I see it is multiple generations of a single family. Frankly, I was also a bit confused about the genre, since having a dead body on the first page often implies a mystery or thriller. Guess the author likes playing with reader expectations. Have a happy weekend!

Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. 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
