  1. I read Dracula for Classic that Scares You. (It wasn't scary :D lol)
    I chose this because it was for some reason an intimidating title. I'd never even picked it up before so it simply must have been the idea of the "original" vampire story that was 'scary'.

  2. I finally tacked Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand (1,168 pages long). It took me a few weeks, but I'm glad I stuck with it. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Rand developed some strong characters (most notably, Dagny Taggart, one of the strongest women characters I've discovered in literature). Even though this is a philosophical/political book, the underlying story is great!

    1. I LOVED Atlas Shrugged. Yes Dagny is indeed one of the strongest female characters in lit. It is a bit daunting to start...but I breezed through it. (other works by Ayn Rand...not so much)

    2. I read Atlas Shrugged too! We have different perspectives, though, because I didn't enjoy the book at all. I look forward to reading your review.

  3. A Dance to the Music of Time by Anthony Powell: Nearly 3,000 pages should explain why it scared me. But I did it and I think I should get extra credit; it's actually 12 novels, published in four volumes - ONE STORY. I couldn't recommend any of them on their own, but I don't really recommend the WHOLE either...just too much of an investment. Bucket List - moving on.
