The Books Still on My Mind this week are…
The Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead
Summary from Richelle Mead’s website:
Two races of vampires walk our world. One, the Moroi, are alive and wield elemental magical. The other, the Strigoi, are undead and evil–feeding on the innocent to survive. Rose Hathaway–a half-vampire with poor impulse control–is training to be a bodyguard for a Moroi princess. Learning to decapitate and stake is hard enough, but Rose’s real danger may lie in an illicit romance with one of her instructors…
Why these are still on my mind?
I just absolutely love this series. I checked out all the books from the library and read them back to back. I didn’t want to put down any of the books and they always kept me wanting more. Vampire Academy was different then other vampire books I had read and I really enjoyed reading it. I love when the female characters can kick-ass and Rose totally could. Oh and I can not forget Dimitri and Adrian (sigh). They really made the books unforgettable. The series was just full of everything I could ask for (love, action, betrayal, humor, friendship, etc). I was so sad when it ended but I have the spin-off Bloodlines to get me through 🙂 It will be a long time before I forget about series (if ever).
