Parasha: Oh right!

Okay, so more discussion in the next, um, week or so about next month and any future months! Maybe. If we feel like it. Well, here goes:

The ones that had some love in the polls last time:

Dracula, in the same, heh, vein as Frankenstein. Classic, horror/sci-fi vibes, hopefully a bit short. (It's been a while since I've read it, I don't recall it being overly long though.) Although with us just having done Jeckyll and Hyde as our previous thing, I wonder if it'd be too soon to do this, now? (I also seem to recall it being a bit dry, honestly, although as I said it's been a while.)

Howl's Moving Castle. Would be fitting since the author passed away recently, and it's a fun book. And might be interesting to compare and contrast the book to the movie, for those who have seen it.

Lucifer. A graphic novel, which is a plus since it's shorter in content and all, although this is another DC one which I feel a bit bad about! But it might be about time for another graphic novel.

The Secret of NIMH. Also has the compare/contrast with the movie thing going on, and might be in a slightly different vein from stuff we've already done, being sorta kiddy fantasy, but not, I think, heavily so?

Some other things that were brought up before, but people didn't seem as interested: Should we keep them on, or yank them? Any thoughts?

Greywalker by Kat Richardson (an urban supernatural book)

The Jungle Book or Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling (Actually having gone back to the Just So Stories, they might be a bit *too* short, and kiddy.)

Bambi by Felix Salten (I yanked Black Beauty which no one seemed interested in anyhow, and which would probably be too twee, but if someone wants it added back, lemme know?)

A second Agatha Christie book (I think the general consensus is that it'd be better to move on to different things, but who knows?

A different graphic novel, such as The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Astro City, Queen and Country, Bone, and some unnamed Marvel.

Also if anyone has something else to suggest, please, make with the suggestingness!
