Vampire Academy - Richelle Mead
I first picked up Vampire Academy in 2009 and began reading it, but at the time I just couldn't get into it for some reason. I actually wasn't going to read the series at all. After the first round of voting in YA-Sisterhood's Crush Tourney this year, I decided to pick it up along with several other books. This time I loved it. I felt the characters were strong, I liked the pacing, the storyline and pretty much everything else about the book.
I think Rose is one of my favorite heroines. She's strong willed, confident, outgoing and just plain strong. She has an attitude I love and strength and loyalty that I love. Insert Dimitri and well they are a great couple or would be. I like him just as much. Lissa i liked well enough, but I'm hoping she snaps out of the funk that was her in the first book. From the way the end sets up I'm thinking maybe? Don't know. I also liked Christian, definately sounds hot and I loved his personality. Overall it was a great book and I can't wait to read the rest of the series. I hope it's just as good.
