Hello Hearts! Good morning, evening, or night! In today's article we are going to be discussing my fall reading list, what they are about, my favorite quote from the book, as well as some past favorites that you should check out!
Make yourself a coffee and let's talk about books!

Cover Description:
"At the novel's center: a uniquely fascinating woman, Triana -who once dreamed of becoming a 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 dominate and draw her into a state of madness through the music she loves.
But Triana understands the power of the music perhaps even more than does Stefan-and she sets out to resist Stefan and to fight not only for her sanity but for her life. The struggle draws them both into a terrifying supernatural realm where they find themselves surrounded by memories, by horrors, and by overwhelming truths. Battling desperately, they are at last propelled towards the novel's astonishing and unforgettable climax.

Violin is crowded with the history, the drama, then invention, and the romantic intensity that have become synonymous with Anne Rice at her incomparable best. "

"Or was it also a dream in a life where dream and reality are so intimately linked that one inevitably ends up triumphing over the other?"

Reader's Opinion: I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! And upon searching the book, I think it is so horribly underrated. Anne Rice is not only an amazing author, but, this story itself is capturing and let me craving more! I wish it had never ended!

Cover Description:
" A fledgling English lawyer Johnathan Harker treks into the Carpathian Mountains to complete a real estate transaction, frightened peasants warn him of horrible dangers that await him. Harker, terrified by eerie events along the way, finally meets his client, Count Dracula, a tall, gaunt old man with a surprisingly powerful handshake.
Harker soon realizes that he is a prisoner in Dracula's sumptously furnishes castle-a strangely devoid of mirrors. One night he is accosted by three veluptuous women, whose sensuous dancing and inhumanly red lips arouse and terrify him. Later, as fifty coffins-sized boxes are brought into the castle in preparation for Dracula's departure, Harker knows that the Count plans to do more in London than see the sights.
Back in England, Harker's fiancee, Mina Murray, is deeply worried. She hasn't heard form Harker in months, and her friend Lucy is acting very strangely. Ever since a ship loaded with fifty boxes of reeking earth wrecked nearby, Lucy has been sleepwalking and exhibiting an "odd concentration". No one, not even Lucy's fiance, Dr. John Seward, can explain her sudden condition. And no on yet suspects that the rational modern world must now confront an ancient evil it is ill equipped to recognize-let alone defeat.
Part Gothic novel, part modern horror story, and party morality play, Dracula is the campire saga that started it all. "

Reader's Opinion: I have only previously read a portion of this book and have yet to finish it, however, from the portion I have read and the thing's I have heard, I do believe this is a classic that is worth the read! Especially in these cold spooky months, when we are surrounded by things that our mind wishes to deny.

Cover Description:
"In this dazzling and long-awaited conclusion to the acclaimed Mortal Instrument series, Clary and her friends fight the greatest evil they have ever faces: Clary's own brother.
Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. Bearing the Infernal Cup, he transforms Shadowhunters into creatures out of nightmares, tearing apart families and lovers to the ranks of his Endarkened army swell.
The embattled Shadowhunters withdraw to Idris-but not even the famed demon towers of Alicante can keep Sebastian at bay. And with the Nephilim trapped in Irdis, who will guard the world against demons?
When one of the greatest betrayals the Nephilim have ever known is revealed, Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Simon, and Alec must flee- even if their journey takes them deep into the demon realms, where no Shadowhunter has set foot before, and from which no human being has ever returned...
Love will be sacrificed and lived lost in the terrible battle for the fate of the world in the thrilling final installment of the classic urban fantasy Series The Mortal Instruments!"

"Weapons, when they break and are mended, can be stronger at the mended places," said Jace. "Perhaps hearts are the same."

Reader's Opinion: Okay, so the reason these books are on my fall reading list is because I either haven't read all of them (which is most likely the case. I have to control myself from picking up multiple books because i always end up reading one and not finishing the other). But I have read the very first part of this book, and the rest of this series! AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the series for any book lovers! I flew through the first three! They literally sucked me into their world! And I have no doubt that this book will be the best, the "bang!" asyouwill, in the series! I absolutely cannot wait to finish it, tho it is so good, I think I am procrastinating so I will not have too.

Cover Description:

" A love triangle that will span eternity. . .
The year is 1864 and the Civil War rages on. But seventeen-year-old Stefan Salvatore is fighting a battle all his own. Engaged to marry someone he does not love, Stefan falls for a mysterious girl names Katherine. With her gleaming curls and mischievous brown, eyes, Katherine is beautiful and seductive. . . But she also harbors a dark secret: She's a vampire.
Based on the popular CW TV show inspired by the bestselling novels, Stefan's Diaries reveals what really happened between Stefan, Damon, and Katherine-and how the Vampire Diaries love triangle began."

"'I think he means us brother" Damon said with a short laugh.'"

Reader's opinion:
The book actually gives a more in depth back story to Stefan and Damon Salvatore's lives. Which I absolutely adore! And to see Katherine in her earlier states is nice! This book is one in three, I do believe, in which all are fairly small and detailed. However, my next goal is to dive into the series that started it all! The Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith!

Cover Description:

"Anna, an adopted child, has always wondered who her real parents are. When Anna and her family check into a strange old hotel, Anna meets the ghostly Colonel and Mrs. Terwilliger. Her resemblance to the couple's missing daughter is eerie- especially since the young girl disappeared over one hundred and forty years ago!
Unable to resist the lure of the past, Anna is drawn back intime to the danger-filled days of the Underground Railroad, which helped runaway slaves to freedom. Here Anna discovers the mystery of her childhood- a mystery that must be solved if Anna is ever to find her way home again."

Forgive me, I couldn't find an image of the book nor would it let me upload one. So here's some spooky and resemblance images.
"Blow, blow
Sweet and low
Wind of the western sea-ee."

Reader's Opinion: This is the book I am currently reading, so far it has been amazing. Detailed and catchy! It is not very thick, just like Stefan's Diaries, so if you are looking for a short read over the weekend I recommend it. It is bound to leave you wanting more & if I am right, I do believe there is more to this book (following books).

This is going to be a list and of books I have already read and could read a thousand times again! I hope you check them out & enjoy them as much as I do, if not more!

1.) Caught in the Act by Peter Moore

2.) Crusade by Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguie (I think there is more books to this, but I have read this one and it is soooo good!)

4.) Cursed by the Moon by Lori Handeland

5.) Moon Cursed by Lori Handeland

8.) IT by Stephan King

9.) VIOLIN by Anne Rice (I told you I LOVED IT)

10.) The Darkest Angel by Gena Showalter (This book and the two by Lori Handeland are books I picked up in a thrift story, they are like the ererie romance book but I love supernatural things and despite the "exotic" details, I think the over all story is worth mentioning.)

11.) Goosebumps: WEREWOLVE OF FEVER SWAMP,
GHOST DOG,
CURSE OF THE MUMMY'S TOMB,
