Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead
*Since its a series review, the format is different, sorry*
I love how this series progresses after each book. It’s really addictive and I couldn’t stop reading it, I took it everywhere I went and whatever I did ended up being aside as I grabbed the book again.
Rose and Lisa are like an epitome of friendship and bonding. They’ve been best friends since forever so I guess it’s hardly any surprise as they stick around each other till the end.
Rose Hathaway is such a badass character that I literally could not even try to be unimpressed. She is very mature and understands what others her age wouldn’t begin to comprehend. Her relation with Lisa and her complex relation with Dimitri and then Adrian is so fascinating to read about.
Her travels make me yearn for some adventure time myself. Those beautiful places keep calling out to me.
At first I didn’t like Lisa that much, she just seemed superficial put against Rose, but then she did manage to slither her way in my good books. Her relation with Christian is something I like the most about her.
These books are based on teens in school, so obviously they’re going to make huge mistakes. Some people find it annoying, but personally I feel it gives a sort of reality check to the otherwise totally fantasy world.
I absolutely adore both Adrian and Dimitri, but obviously I ship Rose and Dimitri. I can rant about the love triangle but then I won’t stop giving out spoilers.
There were just the perfect number of cliff hangers to set me off the edge and make me scream “What the f”, so that was something I loved.
I flew past the whole series so quickly I don’t even remember what happened in which book, like the details clearly. So I can’t tell you guys my favorite book/part of the book, etc. It’s really fast paced and that’s one of the reasons people like it so much, they don’t get bored!
If you like stories which include vampires or boarding schools or bad-ass female characters, this series is for you.
I could not help but notice that the Vampire Academy series is so familiar to the House of Night Series, which I may just like more. Maybe, I don’t know for sure.
If you’ve read this series, what do you think? Too predictable? I can’t say because I went in after being a victim of many spoilers thanks to goodreads and book-tube.
Is that why I didn’t enjoy it as much as House of Night? Dayum.
