Book Blogger Hop: Both Bram Stoker's Dracula and Marry Shelley's Frankenstein...
How could I resist joining the Coffee Addicted Writer's book blogger hop this week when it's Halloween themed?
This Week's Question is:
"Both Bram Stoker's Dracula and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein are considered classics. Have you ever read either of them?"
Yep, I've read Bram Stoker's Dracula back when I was in high school but I've never read Frankenstein.
Frankenstein is one of those books that's been on my TBR for years but I've never mustered the motivation to read it, even though I want to. It's the same for many classics: Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, Lady Chatterley's Lover, Tess of the D'Urbervilles, Anna Karenina...
I want to read them but I never prioritise them over contemporary books.
Lately, I've been toying with the idea of creating a reading challenge for 2018 in which I read one classic novel every month, throughout the year, in order to finally see what all the fuss is about and why these books have stood the test of time.
My fav Dracula quotes:
"I shall tell you. My thesis is this, I want you to believe."
"To believe what?"
"To believe in things that you cannot."
"Yes! The flies like it, too, and I like the flies, therefore I like it." And there are people who know so little as to think that madmen do not argue.
