Vampire Academy | Richelle Mead
156 posts | 639 read | 8 reading | 89 to read
St Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school - hidden away, it's a place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St Vladimir's where the girls must survive a world of forbidden romances, a ruthless social scene and terrifying night time rituals. But most of all, staying alive.

I read it before, but I‘m rereading it so I can actually get through the series. I still very much enjoyed it, and liked it so much better than the movie… No surprise there.

BehindthePages Oh yeah, tons better than the movie! 2mo

#LittensDressedInBlood Today's prompt is Zombie Squad- what book characters you'd like to help you survive a zombie apocalypse?

I went with the crew from Vampire Academy. Packed full with badasses like Rose and Dmitri, and Christian can use fire, so I think I have a pretty good chance of surviving with them watching my back. Wait... so zombies even want to eat vampires? Would they see them as fellow undead? What about dhampirs?

Solid 3 star start to the series. I. And see a lot of potential in both character growth and growth in the plot. I have hopes for where the series could go and I think that is why it didn‘t rank higher. It wasn‘t quite there yet. It felt like the first few Harry Potter books. All the raw materials are there and I‘m curious to see how it ends up.

If I have read this book, I certainly don‘t remember. After re-watching the Twilight series on Netflix (🤭🙃😍) I was in the mood for something fun, fast paced and somewhat guilty pleasure. This certainly fits the bill and is a worthy beginning to a full series. ❤️ the take on the duality of guardians and their charges. And the spunk of the two MCs. Glad to have my reading mojo back & finish it in a few days! #recentlyread @TheAromaofBooks 🧛‍♀️

5/5 for the first in this series! This is a great first book in the series. I just loved Rose. She is feisty and fiercely loyal. The perfect balance to the more demure Lissa. I‘m so intrigued by Dimitri and can‘t wait to see where this goes. Christian is an awesome character too! I will definitely be continuing this series.

Despite focusing on my TBR this year, I just felt the urge to re-read Vampire Academy and Bloodlines, so that's what I'm doing. And I'm enjoying it more the second time around! I forgot how much action each books holds, so it's been a fun distraction from the insanity of reality.

I had hoped to finish Someone We Know yesterday, and I would have... but then I started watching Bridgerton and it took over my Sunday. As much as I love reading, it's rare I get that sucked in by a show.
Still I finished 4 books (Uncommon Type, Girl 11, Star-Touched Stories and Vampire Academy) and made progress on 2 more (Game Of Cones and Someone We Know) for our first #AnywayYouReadathon

The main character Rose and Vasilisa (Lisa) are amazing. My all time favourite is Rose. I love the way she is. She's strong, herself, independent, doesn't take no for an answer, speaks her mind, knows how to fight, gets it her way...there's seriously a lot I love about Rose Hathaway. Honestly to the point I wish I were she.

This series has been sitting on my shelf for a while, I guess it's time to give it a go, since nothing else is jumping out at me.

Also, I cataloged all of my books so I don't keep accidentally buying books I already own, and I have 1,047 books in all!

heikemarie I started this book years ago from the library and it was going well enough but I didn‘t end up renewing it and never picked it up again. I should get back on that. 1y

I had bought Vampire Academy years and years ago and I enjoyed it but I just never got around to buying the rest of the series. Well, I was at my local Ollie's store a week or so ago and seen Shadow Kiss and Spirit Bound for only $1.99!! so I grabbed them and I ordered the rest online. Frostbite got here today, just waiting on Blood Promise and Last Sacrifice now. I'm excited to reread the first and finally read the whole series! 😊

InBooksILive @xxjenadanxx I really liked the first one so I'm sure I'm going to love the whole series! I know I'm excited to finally read them all haha 2y

I love this series I come back to it so very often! Rose kicks butt! Not your normal damsel in distress but an actual heroine who fights her battles and doesn't wait for someone to just rescue her!

This is my day 1 recommendation for #adventrecommends.

Okay I know this book/series has a lame name and cover (it did come out around the time when vamps were "In") but it is awesome.
The world is completely different from most of vampire books so you should give it a try (especially if you are a fan of CW shows, I think you would like this)
It's a 6 book series. It has some amazing friendships and strong heroines. Also Dimitri ❤.

1. I watched Vampire Academy a while back, but just finished the book. I kind of loved the campy badness of the movie. To All the Boys I‘ve Loved Before is perfect.
2. Cinnamon
3. I just started Horrorstor last night.
4. Takeout maybe once a week, but don‘t eat out at a restaurant very often.
5. Best: Had a fun date night at a local beer garden.
Worst: my brother had to cancel his upcoming trip to visit us. 😔
