I really want to read the Anne Rice books, since from the one I got to read half way through was really, really good. I'm just not allowed to read books like that, thanks to my mother. I was half way through, secretly reading "An interview with a Vampire." Then my mother saw what I was reading and wala, got it taken away. She even tried doing that with the Harry Potter series, but I made a fit when she tried to take them from me. I'm almost 17, shouldn't I be able to read what I want?
