Throwback Thursday: May 24th, 2018

I decided to do Throwback Thursday but blog style. I am going to select a book I have read before and see if I would still read it.

This week’s Throwback Thursday is a historical vampire romance:

After Midnight (Cabot, #1)

Author: Teresa Medeiros

Date of publication: August 30th, 2005

Genre: Paranormal, historical romance

Where you can find After MidnightAmazon | Barnes and Noble

Book synopsis (from Goodreads):

“Our sister is marrying a vampire.”

When the ever practical Caroline Cabot first hears those words from the lips of her fanciful youngest sister, she accuses Portia of having a wild imagination.

But when she discovers their sister Vivienne is actually being courted by Adrian Kane, the mysterious viscount rumored to be a vampire, she decides to accept his invitation to a midnight supper and do some sleuthing of her own. To both her delight and her dismay, she soon finds herself falling under Kane’s bewitching spell.

After all, what’s a proper young lady to do when her sister’s suitor arouses more than just her suspicions?

Have I reviewed anything by Teresa Medeiros? No. I didn’t have a WordPress or Goodreads back then

Have I read any other books by Teresa Medeiros? Oh yes. I was in my late teens/early 20’s I picked up Heather and Velvet and got hooked. I read every single one of her books up until After Midnight.

Did I like After Midnight when I first read it? Oh yes. It was a historical romance/vampire novel. What wasn’t there to love about it?

Age I first read After Midnight? late 20’s. I was pregnant with my now 12-year-old. This was actually the last book that I bought before I gave birth.

Would I read After Midnight now? Yes.

How many stars would I give it:

Late 20’s me: 4 stars

Early 40’s me: 4 stars. Even though I remember it being kind of like a historical romance Twilight.
