I was getting hair done a while back and the girl helping out in the salon seen me reading my Kindle and before you know it we were discussing what we like to read. She said she was currently reading Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. I said I had never heard of her. Did you read Twilight? Well yes.. Not the same author, but like those sort of. Well ok I'll give it a try.
Yep I liked it. Not like Twilight they have different beings hanging out in the same private academy for different beings. They all sort of get along. This is a school after all. So now on to book 2 after I finish reading As You Wish by Gabi Stevens. The second book in the Fairy Godmother books I started in book club. But I have to wait for book 3. I hate that!! Oh well it's not like I don't have books to keep me reading..
After two years on the run, best friends Rose, half-human/half-vampire, and Lissa, a mortal vampire princess, are caught and returned to St. Vladimir's Academy. Up until then, Rose had kept Lissa safe from her enemies; school, however, brings both girls additional challenges and responsibilities. How they handle peer pressure, nasty gossip, new relationships, and anonymous threats may mean life or death. Likable narrator Rose hides doubts about her friend behind a tough exterior; orphan Lissa, while coping with difficult emotional issues such as depression and survivor's guilt, uses her emerging gifts for good. Mead's absorbing, debut YA novel, the first in a new series, blends intricately detailed fantasy with a contemporary setting, teen-relevant issues, and a diverse, if sometimes sterotyped, cast of supporting characters. Occasional steamy sex and a scattering of vulgar language demand mature readers, but teens able to handle the edgy elements will speed through this vamp story and anticipate the next installment.
