My First Post!

I've been reading like crazy the past few months. I've always loved books, but ever since I got my Kindle (In Febuary) I've been reading like I can't stop. So I'm starting this blog to write about the books I'm reading and sometimes, other things not related :P.

I'm going to start with something I just read recently. A series actually.

Vampire Academy.BEST.VAMPIRE SERIES.EVER. I know I'm one of the LAST ones to read this series, I just always meant to read them but never actually got around to it. And I was stupid not to. I'm not writing about the story, but rather my what I loved about the book/series. If you want to look it up,read reviews, synopsis etc. here's the link -
Vampire Academy

I've read quite a few vampire novels, heck even quite a few PNR ..I keep going through them hoping to find that one book/series that is so addictive (and this happens rarely)that you can't put it down and this was one of those.I bought the all the parts and read the whole series in about 40 hours. I slept for two :P . When I read the first few chapters of VA, I assumed that the story was about Vasilisa (Lissa) and I was a little disappointed because from the beginning I got attached to Rose. And I'm glad its mostly about her. This is one book with a kick-ass heroine and with not a needy, whiny, co-dependent girl who needs a man to feel like her life is meaningful. It was pretty cool as the story is about not one but two lead characters - Rose Hathaway and Vasilisa Dragomir. Both these girls are so different from each other, yet so perfect together. They're like 2 sides of the same coin. It's got a lot of action and is fast-paced.

The book starts with a high school setting, typical with bitchy girls, gossips, puberty and such, however as we go further into the series, it gets a little darker. You can see the change in the main characters and how they've evolved over the books. And Dimitri, *swoon*. Richelle Mead created an awesome romantic interest for Rose, a guy who balances her out and leads to her growing up. He's the one who grounds her when she's impulsive,upset,angry,crazy, anything! Sure,the books lack in quotes that leaves an impression (I love a good line!), but its got characters who do make up for it instead. Each book makes you want to get to the next one. I liked Twilight.. a lot. I did get over it though..And I have to say, this kicks Twilights ass! Anyone who likes the Trylle Trilogy, Fallen Series, Hunger Games etc. would like this!

Also, nothing's stopping them from having sex. Well, almost nothing. Thank God for that.


  1. I LOVED this serie. It's one of the first books that actually made me cry :)

  2. this is awesome series ever for vampire stories, I love VA, I love all character but not strigoi Lol' ^^ VA is Perfect to me

  3. I totally agree with you that Vampire Academy is the best vampire series ever! It's original and entertaining, and who could possibly not like Dimitri? I fell in love with Richelle Mead's writing thanks to this book.... I stayed in love, of course, because of Georgina Kincaid and Seth :-)

  4. I've been putting off these books for far too long, I need to start them ASAP.

  5. I love Vampire Academy! It's my most favorite vampire series! :)

  6. I've been in love with this series since I accidentally stumbled upon it in Target a few years ago. It's been great to see Rose grow and mature. I love Adrian, even though I knew Rose and Dmitri (swoon) were right for each other. I just started Bloodlines and am so excited to get more time with Adrian!!
