Finally Reading Dracula!

So I've finished Paper Towns, and I think it was better than Looking For Alaska, which many seem to disagree on.

But after years of waiting, I've finally bought Dracula by Bram Stroker. The first vampire novel and the one that brought vampires into our modern society.

I've been a fan of vampires for longer than I can remember. I honestly can't remember when my fascination with vampires started. I had once read a book that said the reason why humans like vampires is because of the idea of "Immortality". It also detailed how the myth of vampires came into being.

For years, I wanted to buy Dracula and read it. I couldn't find any copies back home, but I found some here. About 5 of them are in the "Classics" section of Waterstone's. I bought one recently, and can't wait to read it! I also bought Frankenstein and it had a picture of Frankenstein's monster on it, which I found weird but reasonable. Dracula has a picture of a (or the) castle on it.

    Ha! I downloaded Dracula on my Kindle and I'm reading it too. I'm loving it so far.

    I read Frankenstein in high school...it was all right. So far I prefer Dracula.

    Haha, yeah, this is on my list of Vampire novels to read as well, after Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series and the rest of the Twilight saga (I'm going through a phase :P)

    Please post your thoughts on it after you finish! :)

    No problem. I actually read the first of the Sookie Stackhouse books. It was a good read, no revolutionary or mind-blowing, but still very entertaining and exciting. I plan on reading the rest when I go back home. (Hardest part about studying in the UK is leaving all my unread books behind)
