Right now I am rereading The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice. I forgot how much of a wonderful writer she is. I love The Vampire Chronicles. I orginally became interested in Anne Rice after I saw Interview With A Vampire a few years ago. Because I am only 23, I wasn't old enough to read them when they first came out or to see the movie when it was first released. However, I am glad that I found out about Anne Rice through the movie.
I have just finished the Weight of Water by Anita Shreve (Much better then I expected. Tugged on a few insecurities that I'm not proud of.)
I tend to read alot of books at once. It takes me a bit to finish them, but I enjoy the challenge.
So - I am also reading
The Early Stories of Willa Carther by Mildred Bennett - (Enjoyable and at times disturbing)
Apocalypse Array by Lyda Morehouse - (I don't like it but I can't stop reading it.)
Asylums by Erving Goffman (Fascinating)
Shattered Nerves by Janet Oppenhiem (Dry as a bone)
Monster by Frank Peretti (horror fiction)
I'm currently reading my sisters keeper by Jodi Picoult.
It is truly amazing.
I hate the fact i saw the film before i read the book, but i thought i'd give the book a try anyhow.
And its amazing, so different from the film! I can't put it down!
