#YearOfRice

I‘m still trucking along in my #YearOfRice and I have some thoughts on this one:

- The movie has NOTHING on this book, and very little in common with it. 🤔

- LOVE the female characters added to the story! Maharet, Jesse, Pandora... yay!

- Anne Rice and her writing are no joke. 🙌🏻

- I love me some Louis, but Lestat is the man: ‘I can‘t help being a gorgeous fiend. It‘s just the card I drew.‘

On to the next!

The Vampire Lestat | Anne Rice
post image
Pickpick

Ok, so now I like Lestat a whole lot more than I did at the end of Interview with the Vampire. Some observations:

• Anne Rice is pretty freaking good.

• This story is ambitious, sprawling around a lot of the world and huge spans of time.

• These vampires have some interesting histories and legends.

• Tom Cruise really had no business playing Lestat. Seriously, wtf was up with that casting? 🙄

On to the next!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

andreadmw YES!! To all your observations. I was a Louie girl until I read this novel. Well, honestly, don‘t think I ever stopped being a Louie girl. But, definitely softened my heart to Lestat. What a story! 6mo
EmilyM I think this was my favorite book in the series. 6mo

I read this in the 90s as an impressionable teenager because I was obsessed with Brad Pitt and wanted to read the book before the movie.

I reread it as part of my #YearOfRice, and I still love it. Of course, mentally picturing Brad as Louis for a few hours was bound to be nice.😍

I love Simon Vance as a narrator, but he seemed an odd choice for this. Maybe Brad could narrate?

Obviously, my Brad Pitt obsession is still going strong.😂

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Blaire Yes! I also loved this in the 90s. 6mo

EmilyM Such a great series--although Tale of the Body Thief, I think it was called, wasn't great. 6mo

The Fifth Season | N. K. Jemisin
post image

February wrap-up... my reading was really down this month. Seems like falling on ice and injuring my hip and leg would give me more reading time, but nope!

14 books finished:

9 by black female authors #readblackwomen
4 #1001books
5 challenge books
5 #mountTBR books

I only finished one Anne Rice book this month, so I am now two books behind schedule on my #YearOfRice.

Favorites are pictured... The Fifth Season was my overall favorite. ❤️

Erinreadsthebooks I taught Raisin for years and years. Love it so much! 6mo
SW-T Hope your hip & leg are feeling better! 6mo

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Awesome on the reading, not the injury. 6mo
vivastory Sorry to hear about your injury! 6mo
UwannaPublishme Ouch! Hope you‘re feeling better. 🌻 6mo
Liz_M Ooh no! Yeah, funny how painkillers and exhaustion from dealing with an injury hamper reading time. I hope you had some recovery time to watch movies /tv 6mo
sprainedbrain @Erinreadsthebooks I can‘t believe I hadn‘t ever read it. So good! 6mo
sprainedbrain @SW-T slowly getting there! 6mo
sprainedbrain @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego 😂😂 I figured that out! I can‘t wait to read the rest of the series. 6mo
sprainedbrain @vivastory Thanks! My kids make fun of me because apparently I hurt myself at least once a year... 😂 (edited) 6mo
sprainedbrain @UwannaPublishme @Liz_M Today is the first day since I did it last Saturday that I have been able to rest and do nothing, so I‘m feeling much better today! 😃 6mo
