Vampire Academy
Vampire Academy | Richelle Mead
126 posts | 544 read | 9 reading | 69 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.

My accidental re-read was exceptionally enjoyable, so much so I intend to re-read the entire series! Bring on Frostbite!

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! 😊

xxjenadanxx Nice find!! I love Vampire Academy! 2mo
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 2mo

InBooksILive @kaysworld1 I've been wanting to read the Sookie books! I watched a couple seasons of True Blood too and couldn't finish them either. I had won a few books from the Sookie series in a giveaway awhile ago but I never got them unfortunately. 2mo
kaysworld1 @InBooksILive I bought mine from charity shops must of been fate that day I went on the hunt for them and the first shop I went they were there, I already had 3 books so I used Goodreads to check which ones I needed 🤣 shame you didn't get the books they are really good xx 2mo

CrowCAH @Reviewsbylola it‘s great! The characters are round and interesting, they have great internal and external conflict, and there‘s an underlying mystery. I even recommended the offshoot series 3mo

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. 😔

My #OctoberTBR! I thought I‘d include ebooks here this time because I have a lot of them from #Libby I really want to get through in the next few weeks! After reading Dandelion Wine last month I‘m really excited to read more Bradbury. I am going to try to reread Frankenstein, though I won‘t be able to host the buddy read I suggested last month-there‘s just too much going on this month, and I‘m afraid I wouldn‘t be a good organizer right now.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I can‘t tell if it was short, or if I was so absorbed that I wasn‘t noticing how quickly that I was moving through it. I really wish that I started reading this series when I bought it 5 years ago. It was amazing - it had me in suspense and at the edge of my seat. The writing was beautiful and immersive, the complexity and depth of the characters was out of this world. Now, please excuse me while I start book 2.

The answer came to me before I'd even finished asking myself the question. I couldn't be Mason's girlfriend because when I imagined someone holding me and whispering dirty things in my ear, he had a Russian accent.

I lost track of time yesterday and wasn‘t able to post my #aprilbookishmadness post. So I‘m posting them both now. My first prompt is #authoryoulove and for this I choose Nicholas Sparks. And it was because when I was trying to figure out who, I realized that I had every single book. Lol and my second is #coupleyoulove but for real Rose and Dimitri forever ❤️

This was a very enjoyable book. It ended well, although I'm sure the bad guy will continue to do bad things in other books, but that happens in series . I don't know if I will continue the series or not but I'd recommend the book to a friend if I had friends who liked a lot of vampires :)

Aurora0044 You should definitely keep reading the series, the books/story only get better! 😍 1y

A friend of mine mentioned Vampire Academy when we were talking about love triangles so I picked it up. I had a reading competition going with a different friend but she abandoned me to do her own thing. Oh well. Read on!!

#WCW was a hard pick for me because I LOVE a well-written strong female character so I had a lot to choose from but I decided on an oldie (for me...in teen years). Rose is an awesome friend, a kick-ass fighter, and has a strong personal moral compass. She can be over/confident and she may not always make the best decisions but, in the end, she almost always puts herself and her feelings second. #TRW2017 #WomanCrushWednesday

TaylorMay Lol this cover always looks like Angelina Jolie 2y
queerbookreader Not sure if you've checked these out but she made the first three into graphic novels too 2y

EchoLogical @MarriedtoMrT Have you watched the movie? I saw a preview for it before it was released years ago and it completely turned me off from the books. 😲 2y
MarriedtoMrT @EchoLogical I tried but the first 10 minutes or so were awful and I couldn‘t watch the rest. The book is definitely better. 2y
TaylorMay Agreed. Lol I didn't hate the movie but the books are SOO much better. The movie made them roo lighthearted almost campy. 2y
MarriedtoMrT @Chachic The first three were some of the best. I struggled with the later ones but did finish the whole series eventually. 2y

Day 5: Thriller or Paranormal | #melandprireadathon it's paranormal for me. I am not that into Thriller, I do have some favourites in Thriller like Sin Brothers by Rebecca Zanetti, but it is not my preferred genre.

1. The Ravens Cycle.
2. Twilight Saga. What? It's my guilty pleasure and made me love reading when I was 12.
3. The love triangle in Matched by Aly Condie.
4. Thriller/Mystery.
5. Can't think of one.
6. Maggie Stiefvater
7. Insta love.
8. Hmm can't think of one, but I have no interest in finishing Six of Crows series or Truthwitch series.
9. Vampire Academy.
