At Violin's center: a uniquely fascinating woman, Triana - who once dreamed of becoming a great musician - and the demonic fiddler Stefan, tormented ghost of a Russian aristocrat, who begins to prey upon her, using his magic violin first to enchant, then to dominate and draw her into a state of madness through the music she loves. But Triana understands the power of the music and she sets out to resist Stefan, to fight for her sanity and her life.

The Vampire Lestat | Anne Rice
post image
Pickpick

"Very few beings really seek knowledge in this world. Mortal or immortal, few really ask. On the contrary, they try to wring from the unknown the answers they have already shaped in their own minds -- justifications, confirmations, forms of consolation without which they can't go on. To really ask is to open the door to the whirlwind. The answer may annihilate the question and the questioner." — Marius — The Vampire Lestat ?

AkashaVampie True. I think that's why I like to read series so much becuz it gives me more time in them. 11mo
STORYBOOK-CAFE @AkashaVampie That's how I feel about Anne Rice's vampire chronicles. I just started reading them from the beginning, again. I can't even say how many times I've been through the series. I was wondering if you were a fan too because of your name? 11mo
AkashaVampie @STORYBOOK-CAFE honestly I have never read any of her stuff. I do have it on my #SeriesBingo board tho. I do love the movies... Interview With A Vampire and Queen of The Damned. 11mo
AkashaVampie @STORYBOOK-CAFE i just really like Akasha for a name. My oldest son's middle name is Lestat. 11mo
STORYBOOK-CAFE @AkashaVampie The Vampire Lestat is my favorite book of all time. I read it the first time when I was 11 years old. I'm almost 39 now and that old ragged paperback is still on my shelf, I've loved it to death lol. So I think it's pretty cool your son's middle name is Lestat. You should give the books a try. I think you'd enjoy them. 11mo
AkashaVampie @STORYBOOK-CAFE Thanks hun. I know... I call myself a vampire lover and have never read any of hers. I need to get my butt in gear. I'm close to ur age. I turned 35 back in December... but most days I feel 80 (especially when I move. Haha). 11mo
STORYBOOK-CAFE @AkashaVampie Haha believe me, I know exactly how you feel. That's the way it is for me too. 11mo
AkashaVampie @STORYBOOK-CAFE haha. It sucks getting old. 11mo

This classic tale of children, adults, rules, imagination and the quest for love and companionship is as ageless as this story. A lovely book that doesn't take too long to read...you can let your mind wander as you paint pictures in your mind about what the garden would look like. 🍃

Macbeth, a tragedy written by William Shakespeare, is considered one of his darkest and most powerful works. Set in Scotland, the play dramatizes the corrosive psychological and political effects produced when evil is chosen as a way to fulfil the ambition for power.The play is believed to have been written between 1599 and 1606, and is most commonly dated 1606.

The Library: A World History | James W. P. Campbell

The Library: is one of the first books to tell the story of library architecture around the world and through time in a single volume, from ancient Mesopotamia to modern China and from the beginnings of writing to the present day. As these beautiful and striking photos reveal, each age and culture has reinvented the library, molding it to reflect their priorities and preoccupations—and in turn mirroring the history of civilization itself.

Wimbourne Books presents the fourth in a series of rare or out of print ghost stories from Victorian authors, spanning the years 1835 to 1869, including stories from a wide range of authors; English, Irish, Scottish and American. Includes tales by Charles Dickens, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Washington Irving. The authors do a splendid job of taking you back in time to "witness" the ghostly happenings on the moors and in the rooms of ancient manors.

Mozart's Letters, Mozart's Life: Selected Letters | Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Robert Spaethling
post image
Pickpick

Robert Spaethling presents Mozart in all the rawness of his "driving energies" preserved in the "zany, often angry effervescence" of his writing. Where other translators have ignored Mozart's atrocious spelling and tempered his foul language, Spaethling's new translations are lively and racy, and do justice to Mozart's restlessly inventive mind. This collection should be on the shelves of every music lover.

Laura Hillman was born in 1923 in Aurich, Germany, near the North Sea. Five years after Hitler came to power, Laura was separated from her town and family. The events Laura witnessed in the camps kept her from writing for many years, but she finally set out to write her memoir, facing for the first time the circumstances that led to her survival with the help of Oskar Schindler.

"Unquiet Soul" : is a stand out biography of Charlotte Bronte. Peters's insights are crisp and electrifying. The research done was extensive, and the narrative flows like fine literature. This is a great read for a newbie and perhaps even more enjoyable for the long time fan like myself as Peters works in short, sure stokes and one sees long known events in another light. (1975)

During her lifetime, Emily Dickinson did not seek out recognition or attempt to change the world around her, even in the smallest way. She kept her life‘s work, and her innermost feelings, almost entirely to herself. From the 1860's onward, she had essentially become a recluse. After her death, it was her sister Lavinia finally that preserved the more than 1,700 poems Dickinson had secretly produced. Read more about Emily's life in this biography.

The Witching Hour | Anne Rice
post image
Pickpick

[A] huge and sprawling tale of horror." (The New York Times Book Review)

Demonstrating once again her gift for spellbinding storytelling, Anne Rice makes real for us a great dynasty of four centuries of witches - a family given to poetry, murder and philosophy, a family that over the ages is itself haunted by a powerful, dangerous, and seductive being called Lasher who haunts the Mayfair women.

KathyWheeler I like this book but I still remember how mad I was when I finished it. There was no mention that it would be a series when it first came out, so I thought I was reading a stand-alone. As I was approaching the end, it was clear that it couldn‘t be. I was not in the mood for a series back then. 11mo
