After posting about my favourite Gothic reads, I was inspired to make some grand plans for my Halloween reading. Illness and family time, unfortunately, have drastically carved into my reading time. In short, I have yet to read a single Gothic text this month.
Then I remembered that I've been dying to read The Vampyre by John Polidori for ages, and a lovely copy of the text is sitting on my bookshelf waiting to be opened. The tale is very brief as well, so I'll be able to plow through it (and hopefully a few other tales of the macabre to which the cover refers) by Halloween. The history of The Vampyre is quite dramatic, which has only enhanced my curiosity. I'll let you know what I think (and share more about the story behind the story that fascinates book nerds the world over) after I've finished it. I hope others have been more successful than I with October Gothic reading. Have you picked up anything exciting this month, Gothic or otherwise?
