Halloween Bingo Pre-Party: Vampires, Werewolves, Zombies or Others?
Interview With The Vampire - Anne Rice
Twilight - Stephenie Meyer
'Salem's Lot - Stephen King
Let the Right One In - John Ajvide Lindqvist

Sorry all, I had to do some self-care starting this Friday through the weekend. Still feeling kind of out of sorts, but wanted to jump back in here. Talking to all of you and having fun things to look forward to is helping. That and sending out the bingo prizes!




My first horror book monster that I fell in love with was definitely vampires. I remember when Christopher Pike was writing his teen horror books I read "The Last Vampire" in one sitting. Then of course there were the sequels all over the place too.

And who can forget R.L. Stine's vampire books as part of the Fear Street Series. 




I then fell in love with Lestat in "Interview With a Vampire" finished that series to date as much as I could along with reading and finishing the Twilight series when I was overseas. I think there is something that had me going that it's so romantic to have an immortal being that would want to be with me forever so much that they would turn me into a vampire so we could be together always.  


I eventually grew up (literature wise) and realized that I tend to really only like Stephen King's views of vampires and that they are evil. Even though I wasn't down for everything in Salem's Lot, I appreciated what King was doing. He revisits vampires in his Dark Tower series as well as his short stories such as "One for the Road" (sequel to Salem's Lot), "The Night Flier", and "Popsy." Other vampires stories I have enjoyed are "Let the Right One In" and "I am Legend". 


I never really got into werewolves that much and I realized I didn't read a lot of werewolf books growing up beyond watching movies like Teen Wolf and Silver Bullet. And even though I grew up near Pittsburgh, I never got into zombies as a kid/teen/early adult. I think I only started really reading them after "The Walking Dead" got so popular.

Interview With The Vampire
Interview With The Vampire - Anne Rice 4.5 stars

I've been wanting to read this forever it seems, and it did not disappoint. I love really getting inside Louis's head. I also like how the act of being a vampire isn't romanticized. If anything the emotional crisis for vampires is way higher than humans. I'm definitely planning to continue the series.

Enjoyed the reread
Interview With the Vampire - Anne Rice,Simon Vance

I read this book many, many years ago and wondered if I'd enjoy it as much now as I did then. I mostly did. I was a bit disappointed with Simon Vance's narration, though. That surprised me. I've loved his work on several other books but not this one. 


I'm glad I reread the book but have no desire to keep going with the series.

Interview with the Vampire: Claudia's Story - Anne Rice,Ashley Marie Witter
The art work in this book is beautiful. The story pretty much follows Interview with the vampire. So nothing really new here except the art work. It's also a very quick read. I only picked this up because it was a bargain book at BAM. I hesitate to give Ann Rice any more of my money cause all her recent books have been disappointments. This one just alright with very very nice art work. I'm not sure I'd recommend to people that aren't fans of the Vampire Chronicles.
