Shelf Control – May 19, 2016

Shelf Control

Shelf Control is a weekly feature hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies.  Consider this a variation of a Wishing & Waiting post… but looking at books already available.  Take a look at your shelves and/or Kindle and post about a book you own but haven’t read yet.

 The Vampire Lestat
Author:  Anne Rice
Published: Published October 1st 2002 by Ballantine Books (first published 1989)
Length: 481 Pages

Goodreads Summary: Lestat. The vampire hero of Anne Rice’s enthralling novel is a creature of the darkest and richest imagination. Once an aristocrat in the heady days of pre-revolutionary France, now a rock star in the demonic, shimmering 1980s, he rushes through the centuries in search of others like him, seeking answers to the mystery of his eternal, terrifying exsitence. His is a mesmerizing story—passionate, complex, and thrilling.

How I Got It: I bought it.

When I Got It: I honestly have no idea.  It’s probably been over 5 years.

Why I Want To Read It: I absolutely love the Queen of The Damned movie, it’s one of my all time favorites.  I have read the first book of the Vampire Chronicles but haven’t read any farther than that.  I’m very interested to see the differences between the Lestat that I know from the movie and the Lestat that is bound to be different in the books.

**I own The Vampire Chronicles Collection which is the first three books-in-one (Interview with the Vampire, The Vampire Lestat, and Queen of the Damned) cover shown below.  This is one of my pet peeves so I hope to one day get individual copies of each of the books.**


Have you read this book or any of the Vampire Chronicles?

  1. Ooh, I had a phase where I was totally obsessed with Interview With the Vampire (the book, not the movie — the movie was pretty bad). I really liked The Vampire Lestat as well, although I’m guessing there are parts that are kind of pop culture specific and might seem really dated now. It’s definitely worth reading!

    • Glad to hear someone else thought the movie was pretty bad too! I enjoyed the book but the movie was a total let down. I am definitely looking to getting back into the series though at some point.
