i vant to suck your blood
Dracula - Bram Stoker

I am so annoyed with Bram Stoker's Dracula! If I have to hear about Lucy getting one more blood transfusion. Or if I have to hear about how beautiful she is or how Mina loves her one more time ... omg. 

 

Can I just appreciate this book solely for its place in history without having to read it? Because I feel like reading it is making me not like the book at all. 

 

But I laughed at this quote ... "just as a woman does". 

 

The moment we were alone in the carriage he gave way to a regular fit of hysterics. He has denied to me since that it was hysterics, and insisted that it was only his sense of humor asserting itself under very terrible conditions. He laughed till he cried, and I had to draw down the blinds lest any one should see us and misjudge. And then he cried, till he laughed again, and laughed and cried together, just as a woman does. I tried to be stern with him, as one is to a woman under the circumstances, but it had no effect. Men and women are so different in manifestations of nervous strength or weakness!

Slains Castle, Cruden Bay
Dracula - Bram Stoker

Inspired by today's mini-road trip, I'm looking to re-read Dracula. Bram Stoker stayed in the Cruden Bay area when writing Dracula and it is said that Slains Castle - not a ruin in Stoker's day - was the inspiration for Dracula's castle, even though Stoker later moved the setting to Whitby.
