OMG - Anne Rice has written a new Lestat novel…!

In case I’ve not mentioned it before, I had a love/hate relationship with her books in my teens. I devoured them eagerly, but they often lay a bit uneasily in my stomach. While she can create dense atmosphere, I think she had huge issues with character consistency/development, her female characters always struck me as the same cold, sellfish type and some of her plotlines were… *ehem*.

I must have read pretty much all of her books until I went to uni. When I moved away from Germany, I binned them. I thought she should have stopped writing vampire books a long time ago and could well understand that she herself professed to have a love/hate relationship with Lestat.

After already proclaiming the end of the Vampire Chronicles after volume five, then writing another 5+2(?) vampire books (Vampire Chronicles/New Tales of the Vampires) and once more proclaiming the end a few years ago, now this?

What do you think?

I’m 36 and I am at a really good place in my life right now. And when I was your age, in college, I wasn’t. So don’t you let anyone tell you that college or your 20’s should automatically be the best part of your life, or that growing up and being an adult means everything goes downhill. That’s bullshit. I am so happy right now as a middle-aged person. That’s totally a thing. So don’t worry about growing up.
My chemistry professor today, just out of the blue. I thought it was really apropos for all college-aged individuals. (via pineapplemountain)
