Once more, I’ve been doing a bit more writing than reading this summer. My novella was accepted by a publisher and I just finished the editor’s suggestions. Once I know more about the release date, I will be posting more info!
I finished Harris’s Hannibal series up this summer and checked out the classic Carmilla, which was actually the first vampire novel, predating Dracula by nearly 30 years. Since Carmilla was a female vampire, and also contains suggestions of homosexuality, it has been overshadowed by Dracula, which borrowed heavily from aspects of the earlier novel. I reviewed Crown of Crimson for Online Book Club and you can check out my review there. I loved Miss Peregrine’s School for Peculiar Children and I can’t wait to see the upcoming movie. Fantasy and Indulgence in Death crossed off 30 and 31 of my list as I work my way through the series. Stay tuned for my upcoming review of The Bones of the Earth, which will be published soon.
