I’ve been trying out Good Reads to see what the website is all about. It’s kind of fun to rate books and see what they recommend you read, although I feel like I shouldn’t have admitted to some books as I occasionally get weird suggestions. Plus I don’t know how to rate some books I read back in high school and college because usually I either don’t remember them or have the feeling I really didn’t like them. Honestly, I probably just didn’t like them because I was being forced to read them. Except for On the Beach. I hate that book.
Right now I’m reading Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. I thought it was an appropriate time of year (I think I read Dracula around this time last year…mistake). It’s a lot different from what I thought it would be, but it’s not bad so far. I’ve wanted to watch a lot of Halloween type movies lately, too. Clue (okay, more mystery than Halloween), Hocus Pocus, Young Frankenstein, etc. Tis the season.
