The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
I loved this book -- really really loved it. I started reading it last year and then was juggling too many books. I was reading a lot at night, and this book was too scary for me to read at night (yes, I'm a wimp) so I had to only read it during the day...so...it got dropped. Recently, however, I started reading it while I was at the gym and I loved it! It's not "scary" but definitely creepy. What I loved: I loved the setting. There's a lot of traveling in the book, and I was intrigued by her descriptions and these places I've never been to. I was also, however, thrilled that part of it takes place in Budapest and fell in love again with that city. I enjoyed the characters, though at times I was annoyed, but that's ok. And finally, I'm so happy with the ending. A book about Dracula -- it could be very cliche and unoriginal, but she did a fabulous job...and I love how she concluded it. I'd recommend it. Great piece of fiction.
