Shadow Kiss
Shadow Kiss: A Vampire Academy Novel | Richelle Mead
The third book in the series of New York Times best-selling adaptations of Richelle Meads Vampire Academy.It's springtime at St. Vladimir's Academy, and Rose is close to graduation, but since making her first Strigoi kills, things haven't felt quite right. She's having dark thoughts, behaving erratically, and worst of all ...might be seeing ghosts. Consumed by her forbidden love with her tutor Dimitri and protecting her best friend, the Moroi princess Lissa, Rose is in no state to see the deadly threat that will change her entire world - and make her choose between the two people she loves most.

This was a decent read but my biggest problem with this was that there was something that has beginned as an insta-love and I couldn't relate to it. And this wasn't as thrilling as the second installment.

Pacing felt a bit off: the beginning was good but then there was a big part of the book where happened almost nothing. The last 100 pages had all the action.

I read this book so fast! 190 pages the first night & 180 pages the second night. I would've read the last 40 something pages that night but it was 1 am & I have to work today. Lol anyway I told myself I'm gonna be pissed if this one character dies & then BOOM! Dead! Ugh well I guess that's what makes it interesting! So ready to finish this series that I bought the next book on audio so I could listen at work haha I give this book a 5/5 🍪

I spent sooooo much time listening to this book trying to remember what happened with Eddie in the Bloodlines series and totally forgot what happened at the end of this one!

Book three, which in all honesty is the one I was looking forward to because of a certain scene with the forbidden Dimitri, was even better than I remembered! It's also the one where Rose has to make some very adult decisions. I'm taking a little break while I wait for book 4 from the library, but I'm excited to continue this journey... plus it gets me closer to Bloodlines. Book 14 of 2021.

It‘s been a while between book 2 and 3, but I jumped right back into the world of The Vampire Academy and I really do enjoy it.
This one may have been my favorite one yet. Mead has plot twists and ghosts and action and romance. It‘s all combined and I really felt like we were getting more focused in on who Rose is as a person, not just a dhampir.
Do yourself a favor and don‘t judge the book by the movie. The books are so much better!

Does anyone else re-read?

I‘m re-reading my favorite series right now!!!

wanderinglynn Yes! I love rereads because I find I get different things out of the books or see things I didn‘t get the first time. 2y
ljuliel I re-read some books , and more so with audio. I don‘t think I retain as much when listening, so I can listen to them several times and notice things I didn‘t previously. 2y
juls29 I don‘t often reread but I love that series! 2y

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ WOW. WOW. WOW. Never have I ever read a paranormal series with so much complexity and depth. Everything ties together and is fleshed out so intricately. This is an amazing series. I am so anxious to see what happens next.

I will finish this book today 😊

JanuarieTimewalker13 This is the one I stalled one. I have to revisit. Just not sure when. Are you liking it the 2nd time around? 4y
Aurora0044 @JanuarieTimewalker13 I loved all the books the second time around, it was like coming home. I wish they had continued making the rest of the movies because I think the series would have been great on screen ❤️ 4y
JanuarieTimewalker13 Ok, good to know! Thanks!!☮️ 4y

“She didn‘t understand what it was like to be filled with a love so strong that it made your chest ache - a love you could only feel and not express. Keeping love buried was a lot like keeping anger pent up, I‘d learned. It just ate you up inside until you wanted to scream or kick something”

I had so much anxiety in this book. There was so many times I wanted to reach in, grab people, choke the shit out of them and yell at them to leave Rose alone. My heart just broke at the end and I can't continue until my other books arrive in the mail. 😖😫😩😢😭
