Renee began Throwback Thursday at Its Book Talk as a way to share some of her old favorites as well as sharing books that she wants to read that were published over a year ago. Books that were published over a year ago are almost always easier to find at libraries or at a discounted sale price. As I have been sifting through my TBR list and purging those books that no longer hold my interest, I came across several from years past that I’d love to share with you!
Published: May 1977

Here are the confessions of a vampire. Hypnotic, shocking, and chillingly erotic, this is a novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force — a story of danger and flight, of love and loss, of suspense and resolution, and of the extraordinary power of the senses. It is a novel only Anne Rice could write. (from Goodreads)
That has to the one of the shortest book descriptions that I have ever seen on Goodreads. Most of them are usually so long I get bored of reading them before I get to the end. I must admit, I had absolutely no idea that this book had been published in the 70’s. I have read it a couple of times over the years and had it in my head that it was published in the 90’s. During my teenage years I was absolutely obsessed with all of Rice’s Vampire chronicles. Lestat was my jam. I doubt I will ever read them again (mostly because I gave away my copies of the books to the library the last time I moved) but I still have fond memories of all of The Vampire Chronicles. Also, Lestat and company are far more entertaining vampires than those twinkly teen drama soaked ones. You know who I mean.
