Review: Vampire Academy: Richelle Mead

Title: Vampire Academy
Author: Richelle Mead
Vampire Academy Series: Book 1
St. Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school—it's a hidden 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—the very place where they're most in danger...
Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy's ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world's fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever.

   I like this cover because the girl looks so much like Angelina Jolie. But I do wish this whole series had a different set of covers, just because amongst other books in the store it didn't really stand out.

My Review:
absolutely love this series. 

OMG Wat an amzing book!! 

The thing that i loved most about this book is how independent and strong Rose is. Though she can get a little over excited and say things she shouldnt, I think that is what makes her such a likable character. She is very easy to relate with.She's very realistic because she's strong and an amazing friend but she isn't perfect. 

Another awesome thing about this book is Dimitri & Rose's love for one another. I like that it wasn't "the moment i saw him i knew i loved him" kind of thing it was a genuine attraction and relationship that built up and made them fall for each other. They understand one another and Richelle Mead just makes you want to fall in love with him while routing for them. 

I love that rose isn't self involved and is very responsible. I think this is DEFINATE MUST READ for people that loved twilight, or that love a great paranormal romance, or just want to read and amzing book. All the characters are well devoloped and you begin to care for them. 

I loved this book!! This is one of my top 3 favorite books

  1. I completely agree! I have read this series three times because I loved the books so much! You HAVE TO read the spinoff series: Bloodlines. It is my second favorite series now.

    And not to sound like a creep, but I have been looking through your book reviews and have found that I have read almost all of the same books you have read and loved them, specifically Vampire Academy,Hex Hall, and City of Bones. Just thought it was a big coincidence! Happy blogging :)
