Hello there, Bookstagram people! A thorny subject today... 📚
•
Spoilers - why, why, why...?
•
Yesterday I was reading my current book which I'm nearly finished. It's a classic (I won't write the name because I don't want this to be a spolier) and I was very nearly 500 pages in. As it's a classic from the 1800's there are numbered footnotes alongside phrases, customs, objects, etc. that are no longer used or exist today. If you are interested in finding out what these phrases/expressions/customs/objects mean or were, you can go to the back of the book to find a list of explanations and definitions. Great.
•
However, as I'm approaching the 500th page I come across a numbered footnote. Being curious I make a habit of looking up these footnotes. This particular footnote says that the last character's comment could be an allusion to the death of the protagonist later in the story.
•
I was not impressed to say the least. Honestly, what publisher would do something like that? Not a very bright move on their part. What were they thinking??
•
Also,...
•
...earlier this year I was in a bookshop in my neighbourhood and I got chatting to the sales assistant. He asked me what I was reading at that moment. I told him and he (as a "joke") asked me if I'd reached the part where one of the central characters dies yet.
•
Of all people - someone who works in a bookshop. Furious! I could have just slapped him across the face with a hardback. 💣 He stood there smiling at his little "joke"
•
Hilarious, I'm sure you'll agree.
•
Anyway, rant over. ☕
•
On a much brighter note I'm very glad that #victober is so popular. Especially the Gothic literature selections I see people making. Keep it up! 🍁 October is always a great month to plunge into Victorian ghost stories.

'Welcome to my house! Enter freely. Go safely, and leave something of the happiness you bring.' - Bram Stoker, Dracula ⚰
•
Happy 1st October, bookstagrammers!
•
Well, Halloween is on the horizon. Do you have any October reading traditions to get yourself in the mood before the big day...?
•
I like to read Dracula's Guest by Bram Stoker. It's a short read and perfectly atmospheric. As soon as it begins, you are immediately drawn in. If you haven't read it, give it a try. 📖🌘 I read that it was originally the first part of Dracula but was removed. Does anyone know why when it is so brilliant?
•
Anyway, wishing you all a wonderfully eerie October! 🎃 Enjoy!!!

'The last I saw of Count Dracula was his kissing his hand to me, with a red light of triumph in his eyes, and with a smile that Judas in hell might be proud of.' - Bram Stoker, Dracula ⚰
•
Hey bookstagram folks! I hope you are well!
•
Autumn/fall is upon us and the leaves will start changing colour here in Barcelona soon which started me thinking about  how important colour is as a motif in Gothic literature...
•
In the 19th century the colour yellow was likened to psychological disorders, e.g. The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Of course Dracula conjures up images of black, white (Victorian virginity) and blood red. If I think Frankenstein, naturally the colour green comes to mind and Poe is synonymous with raven black, a black cat and The Masque of the Red Death.
•
So, bookworms...which shade/colour do you most associate with Gothic literature?
•
Raven black?
Jaundice yellow?
Gravestone grey?
Blood red?
Sepia brown?
Ivy green?
Pumpkin orange?
Bone white?
•
For me, I would have to go with red. Blood, devils and hell fire and so on 👹🔥
•
Can anyone think of any colours that I've overlooked?
•
Feel free to comment/like/share - ✴🖤✴

Autumn already. 2018 is flying by. Bring on the dark evenings, mugs of tea, books, blankets and candlelight. Oh, and Halloween. 🎃 I've been burned by the sun enough now.

'The best time for planning a book is while you're doing the dishes.' - Agatha Christie
•
I've been in a bit of a slump lately. Everything I write I question, my storylines are not working out and I'm making a complete mess of it all in my head. I'm not even certain if this post will make sense.
•
I've also fallen back on my reading. I used to read every day but during this summer it has been very patchy. Then I notice how unhappy I am because I haven't been reading and writing as I was.
•
What's more, I feel like I've not been studying as hard as I ought to. This makes me extremely frustrated with myself. Ufff!
•
I'm going to wash some dishes now. Hopefully it will settle my thoughts.
•
Am I alone in this? I can't be.

'And all I loved, I loved alone.' - Edgar Allen Poe 📖📘
•
Yesterday I bought a second hand copy of Tales of Mystery & Imagination by Edgar Allan Poe, 1933 edition, Daily Express Publications, London at Ickworth House, a #nationaltrust estate in Suffolk, England.
•
Isn't it incredible what other people just give away for nothing...? What you would treasure, someone else might think nothing of. I'll give it a very good home though.
•
Here's a selfie of me burning my pale skin in the summer sun. Have a wonderful Sunday! 📚

"I think I have heard you say that their uncle is an attorney in Meryton”
•
“Yes; and they have another, who lives somewhere near Cheapside.”
•
“That is capital,” added her sister, and they both laughed heartily.
•
“If they had uncles enough to fill all Cheapside,” cried Bingley, “it would not make them one jot less agreeable.”
•
“But it must very materially lessen their chance of marrying men of any consideration in the world,” replied Darcy.
•
- Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice 🎩💰
•
•
What snobs! Personally, I would have jumped at the opportunity to explore Cheapside in the early 1800's. But then again, I don't own Pemberley.

Hey Bookstagram folks! Let's go spooky. What is  your all-time favourite Gothic literature monster?
🌘
For me, I would go classic : Dracula. ⚰
✴
Or the ghosts in A Christmas Carol.🕯

Remember: Frankenstein is the scientist, not the creature. 🖤📗

'Life, although it may only be an accumulation of anguish, is dear to me, and I will defend it.' - Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, Frankenstein
▫️
A day by the lake at St. Moritz. Blissful. Lying on the bank, sun shining, feet in the water, snoozing. Happiness is completely free.
▫️
Also, being in the country which was the birthplace of the novel Frankenstein is an added bonus.
