Books like Dracula

Hey /lit/, I rather liked Dracula by Bram Stoker, and was looking for something similar. I found it fun because of the old-fashioned but pretty easy to read writing style (if a bit monotonous sometimes), gothic horror (which is kind of amusing these days) and of course, the vampire theme too. While looking for something similar I read Interview with the Vampire, but though good, wasn't quite what I was looking for.
What similar book would you guys recommend?
Frankenstein - Modern Prometheus?
Anyways, might be obvious I don't come here often since this must be pretty entry-level to you guys, but regardless, hope you can help out.

Can /lit/ into psychology?
Specifically the MBTI?
/g/ sent me here...
I'm having a hard time figuring out my personality type (want to do so to analyse my life and figure out what I'm doing wrong).
The online tests always place me on INTJ, INTP, ISTP, INFP, ISFP... Depending on my mood, and what page I'm using, so I decided to actually research the Jungian cognitive functions and the theory behind the MBTI.
I know I'm Ne/Si since I see the interconnections of things/ideas and possibilities in the outside world, and I always have vivid memories of the past when I'm in a similar situation.
I also know that I'm Ti/Fe because I'm always disassembling things and ideas to figure out how do they work and the logic behind them, I'd also give my life for those I hold dear, i.e. my family.
Based on my own research and conclusions, I must be an ENTP, and I do quite fit the description of one (have lots of ideas, I'm always late, never finish anything), BUT not a single test I've ever taken places me as an ENTP...
That makes me thing I must be wrong, or that I'm a very unusual kind of ENTP, which might imply there is actually something wrong with me...
What do you think /lit/?
Help me, I want to stop procrastinating and ruining my life...
If I only could focus on what I'm doing...
Pic related, I never study and I always manage to do beat that the nerds in my class (that was 5 years ago, I'm NEET ATM).

Thoughts on the Dune series? High points? Low points? Best book of the series? Worst?
So I'm half way through the Dune series now. Finished Children of Dune a few weeks ago and now I'm half way through God Emperor and I'm a little perplexed by it... possibly even disappointed.
Children was excellent. Plenty of intrigue, the action and pacing was pretty consistent throughout and Herbert's books always seem to culminate in a great climax at the end.
God Emperor is just strange to me though, I think mainly because it feels so disjointed from the rest of the series. It jumps forward some 3.5k years into the future and the only characters that carry any sort of continuity through to the 4th book are Duncan and Leto to some degree. What's more, Leto is just a bizarre, quasi-omniscient worm creature at this point, and so far a majority of the book seems to overlook a lot of the other characters, especially Siona, who I figured the book would follow a little more closely, but so far she has only appeared during a few instances and has been mentioned a few times by Leto.
Regardless, the book isn't "bad" by any means, and I'm hoping/expecting that it will pick up near the end like these books usually do.
