Suddenly Sunday - Dracula

Suddenly Sunday is hosted by Confessions and Ramblings of a Muse in the Fog. Stop by and check it out!

Hello everyone! I haven’t posted a Suddenly Sunday in awhile. A mix between I have been busy catching up on posts and not having the desire to. Work has been crazy, as we are getting toward the end of the fiscal year, and I have been trying to keep some of my time open after I get home, so I have been utilizing the preschedule function.

I want to first thank all of you for your frequent lovely comments. It really does break up the monotony at work to read them. Also, I’m very excited to have crossed the 200 follower mark. Thank you everyone!

Earlier this week I posted my review of The Creation of Eve by Lynn Cullen. I did enjoy this book, but it really wasn’t quite what I expected. To remedy that, I posted Sofonisba Anguissola, Who? to give those unfamiliar with her life a little background. She honestly had one of those lives that could make a beautiful book or movie without changing a thing!

Don’t forget that there is a giveaway still going on right now for my favorite book yet this year – Heart of Lies by M. L. Malcolm. It will end on the 29th.

Starting tomorrow there is going to be an exciting event going on between Lions and Men and this blog. As you might have noticed from the banner above we are co-hosting a Dracula Week! The graphics are courtesy of my boyfriend – I don’t have a hand for those things.

Nick, from Lions and Men and my boyfriend, read Dracula by Bram Stoker while I read Dracula in Love by Karen Essex. I thought that it would be perfect to have a little crossover event featuring the two books. Here is a small summary of what will be taking place this week, but be sure to check out both blogs throughout the week.

Monday 8/23 – Nick’s review of Dracula at Lions and Men
Tuesday 8/24 – There will be a discussion between Nick and me about Dracula and Dracula In Love at The Maiden’s Court
Wednesday 8/25 – Part I of an interview with Karen Essex will be posted at The Maiden’s Court
Thursday 8/26 – Part II of an interview with Karen Essex will be posted at Lions and Men
Friday 8/27 – My review of Dracula In Love at The Maiden’s Court

There will also be several other posts but the exact dates have not been decided at this time – these include: Vlad the Impaler, traits of Dracula, an installment of Caught on Tape, and vampire mythology

There is currently a giveaway going on at Lion’s and Men for a copy of Dracula – check it out!

Hope you are all having a awesome weekend so far and hope to see you around this week!

  1. Oh -- Dracula week! Love it -- and perfect timing -- I've just started Dracula In Love and I'm *in love* with it.

  2. This is such an interesting idea, especially seeing Dracula from the perspective of the two sexes, and the myth, literature and HF sngles.

  3. Oops, just saw my typo. That was supposed to be HF angles.


Thanks for leaving your comments! I love reading them and try to reply to all!
