Fangirl Style Reviews: Vampire Academy Series Edition

Fangirl-Style Reviews is an original feature created by me :$
What is a Fangirl Style review? Basically it's me being short, not very eloquent, and perhaps screaming in font or using a lot of !!! :) :v :|| etc. non professional, FUN, crazy, weird reviews. 
AKA.. FANGIRL-Style! :tup

I read Vampire Academy a few weeks ago and devoured it. I instantly knew what all the fuss and hype was about; I was in. I really liked Rose as a character, her strength and her friendship with Lissa. I right away ordered the second book and when I got it I couldn't wait to continue the series and see what would happen to Rose at St. Vladimir's Academy. Not to mention, it seems like I have read every one of these books so far in one day. I'm a fast reader, but I'm rarely that entranced to read it in one day - let alone but three books in a series. 

So, one thing I wanna tell you guys is this: if you haven't read VA yet, you need to! It's an amazing series, and well-written. Lots of action and kick ass heroines are what it's all about! Plus, then we can fangirl all over it :P


Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy, #3)Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead
Source: Paperback via library
My rating: 4 of 5 stars :star :star :star :star

Really more like 4.5 stars. 

Pulled an all-nighter to finish this one. It was kinda hard to watch Rose fall apart in this book. I admit I wish Lissa had reached out more while it was happening and confronted her about it..I also wish rose would've trusted her best friend with her issues, not all of them, I get that, but some of them.

I'm officially hooked on this series. With each book I get more and more invested. I doubt I'll be waiting much longer before I start the next one. :e

Do you love the Vampire Academy books? Why do you (or don't you) love them?

  3. I remember putting of this series so much because if the whole "vampire" thing but after tons of recommendations i binge read it a year ago over march break and loved the books so much! I'm a total fan now

    1. Awesome ^_^ isn't it funny how we put off books for so long then when we finally read them it's like why did I wait so long?! :P lol

  4. Ahh! I still need to finish this series! To be honest, I became a fan when I listened to the audiobooks, the narrator was so fantastic! But I still haven't "read" the last two books because I wanted the audios, again.
    Great post, Dee!
