A tasteful book review of The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty by Anne Rice
This book is recommended for adult audiences only. Read at your own risk and keep an open mind about Anne Rice. Rice firmly believed that women should have the freedom to read and write whatever they pleased, and considered the trilogy her political statement. I can totally see this statement after reading the book.
I have not read the second or the third book of the series and cannot decide if I will. While the first book was certainly an interesting read and a quick read I have not decided if this is a genre of book that I find I need to continue reading.

Yes, as soon as I saw Ann Rice I thought this would be a vampire book. Wow – I had no clue she was writing this type of trilogy. It's not my type of book but it's good to know. Glad I read your review!

I am always up for a new book, I will read just about anything! I have not gotten too much into Ann Rice but have heard good things.

Read books 2 and 3 too! The end of book 3 is awesome!!!

I'm not familiar with the Anne Rice books. They aren't my thing. I know she is a popular author. I think any reading that people do is awesome. Great way to slow down and enjoy quiet time.

I also haven't read anything by Anne Rice – although I appreciate your thorough review, it isn't a type of book I would take the time to read.

I have never read an Anne Rice book, though I know she is supposed to be an excellent writer. I didn't read any of the 50 shades because I heard the writing was atrocious. Thanks for this review, I didn't know this series existed!

I am a huge Anne Rice fan but I have never read this series! Thank you for this wonderful review! Adding these to my list!
Well I'm glad I saw your review! Probably not my style of book, but if I saw it and didn't read these I would have definitely thought vampires and would have been in for a shock! Lol!!
