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!

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

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
