Review and GIVEAWAY! Dracula In Love by Karen Essex

Dracula in Love

My thoughts:
(if you read a few entries down you can get a summary of the book)

I liked this story. I have not read Dracula and I think I might have needed to before reading this. I got pulled into the hype of this being like the Twilight for adults. Sorry, there was no similarities when it came to being anything like Twilight.

The story itself is dark and captivating. I was drawn in from the beginning waiting to see everything that would  happen. I expected the Count to be around a lot more then he was in the book. She never once really to me seemed to be that in love with him as much as he was in love with him. I felt almost the same as the Count, that Mina is selfish. It seemed always about her. Then again, the book is in her persepective.

I say pick it up. Its a good read. It is completely different from anything paranormal you have been reading if that is your genre. I think this is even a book that someone who isn't into paranormal would enjoy. It isn't about vampires running around biting people. It is dark, mysterious and gothic.

So on that note, I have been talking about it all week, that I am hosting a giveaway for 2 of these books! How awesome. The contest will end Aug 20th, just fill out this form HERE.

***Thanks to Double Day for giving me 2 books to giveaway and the opportunity to review this book***

I'm not much into goth novels but this one looks very interesting. I do like Carlos Ruiz Safon, his novels are goth.

Yay for it being nothing like Twilight because if it was, I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole :)
