Right now I'm in the middle of The Historian, by Elizabeth Kostova. A great Halloween read. A bit spooky, and dark...it delves into the history and legend of Dracula.
I usually don't go for dark, arcane books, but for whatever reason, it peaked my interest while browsing in a bookstore...and, of course, with it being so close to Halloween it seemed like a natural fit. Some of the backdrop is beautifully set in Eastern Europe...where a portion my family history stems from. I wanted to give it a shot. A well written novel.
And, thanks to the book, Istanbul, Turkey is going down on my list of places I must travel to at some point.
