To explain my silence, I haven't been doing much that's super exciting in general and my dinners have been variations of whole wheat pasta with veggies, which would make for boring pictures that are taken in artificial light. In light of this, I am going to be doing the 30 Day Book Meme, which I found through Windy City Vegan. Without further ado, here is day one:
Twilight! Just kidding, but it is a vampire book: The Historian: A Novel by Elizabeth Kostova. To be perfectly blunt, when I describe the plot to people, all I can think about is how lame I make it sound. It's the story of a young woman searching for her missing father. Also missing are her mother and her father's advisor, who are all linked to Dracula. Yes, the book is about Dracula, but it never feels cliched or boring. Between lush descriptions of various locations throughout the world and the overwhelming sense of dread that pervades the book, you forget all the stereotypes of Dracula that culture has provided and become immersed in the story provided.
