I signed up for a chance to win an advanced reader's copy of the book Dracula In Love by Karen Essex. I was pleasantly surprised when it showed up at my house. I was going on a long car trip and since I had a new book I took it in the car with me and read it the entire trip! The book cover states that it's the grown up version of Twilight. I really liked the Twilight movies so was very excited to read something that didn't take place in a high school.
So for 3 hours I read the book and was totally bored. I do enjoy reading novels set back in the 19th century, but this half of the book was a snore! I was going to not even finish the 2nd half of the book but her friend suddenly died, morbid, yes, but the only exciting thing to happen in several chapters!
I finished the entire book, grudgingly though! I found it very bizarre and weird at times. But I must admit that it was the 1st vampire book I have ever read and I'm not really into anything science fiction and certainly do not believe in vampires, so maybe that is why I was so disappointed in this book.
I would give it 2 thumbs down! just too weird and too boring for me!
