Portable Mistletoe
Portable Mistletoe rated it 2 months ago
Of all the ways vampires are depicted in books and movies, this classic Dracula is how I prefer them. Awful, evil, coldly predatory, both compelling and repelling their victims. The story itself is wonderfully moody and atmospheric and the characters – even the minor characters – are truly a lot of ...

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.I have some pretty mixed feelings about this book. I liked it well enough but I didn't fall in love with it as I had expected to do. This is a story that is told in two timelines and I found that I really enjoyed one timeline much more t...

Once again, this was a good full cast audiobook experience, although there are portions that drag. And although I like how competent Mina is, it's annoying to see her patronized as well. I finished this a while ago but was lazy about posting anything. I read it for the Gothic square for the 2018 H...

She was queen for n...

Boring with incredibly simplistic writing. Yes, I know it's middle grade fiction with children as the target audience, but so was the first Harry Potter and The Hobbit, which both offered immediately engaging characters, fascinating new-but-familiar worlds, and a sly humor that sucked me in immediat...

This story was as charming as it was frustrating. The narrator does a beautiful job with her lovely, lilting fairytale-like accent but the material has issues even a skilled narrator can’t overcome. A beautiful young lady named Sunday falls truly, madly, deeply in love with a frog. A talking frog, m...

Narrators: Alan Cumming, Tim Curry, & full cast I’m done! I’m not sure what to say about it though. I am glad to have read, or listened to, this classic, but I think I’ll need to reread it in print at some point. The performances of the cast were quite good, although I’m not sure how well this boo...

The way this book is set up--being told through a series of diary/journal entries, letters, etc.,--really lends itself to a multiple narrator format. Everyone involved gave an amazing performance, especially Alan Cumming as Dr. John Seward, and Katy Kellgren as Mina Murray/Harker.

I'm getting more of my review backlog out of the way, because, one way or another, I plan on starting the new year with a clean slate. I'd like to leave anything I haven't reviewed by then behind.Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie (aka “Georgie”) doesn't want to spend Christmas with family me...
