Is anyone else just wanting to read this for Dimitri and Rose's story?
Stacia (out of inspiration)
I am fangirl, hear me roar.

No, really. I'm not kidding. Me, the one who likes to slap people who squeal too much. We all have our weaknesses which will turn us into a crazed fangirl. Dimitri Belikov is mine. Oh how I love that Russian.

I promise that I will read the Laini Taylor short story (and maybe check out a couple others), but it's no secret that the only reason I had to get my hands on this book was for the extra helping of my Dimka in the Richelle Mead short story.

Creative and insightful...more

This review is only for Homecoming by Richelle Mead.

4/5 stars

*swoooooon* Melty gooey fangirl puddle = me.

I can't begin to express how wonderful it was to revisit Rose and Dimitri and to read something from her POV again. I actually had tears of joy in my eyes when I started this. I also had the sappiest grin on my face throughout, especially reading the ending.

YA heroes like Dimitri and heroines like Rose are quickly becoming an endangered species. Unforgettable characters like these two are...more

ROSE & DIMITRI´S STORY :))))))




And it was too short and sort of crappy....I expected more...

Rating only for Mead's short story
N. Chow
YES FINALLY. ROSE DIMITRI I HAVE MISSED YOU <3 SO EXCITED FOR THE OTHER STORIES TOO :D Richelle Mead+Michael Grant+Meg Cabot all in one book? I may just die. *_*

Rose and Dimitri back in Russia. I'm going to die by pleasure! Really!

//after reading

I wasn't as impressed at I thought I will be but I didn't hate it. Meybe one day I'll read other short stories too.

I just can't wait for Rose and Dimitri the Stigroi's story. I hope so much that it is being released in Australia!
✽ Sharon is an emotional book junkie ✽
**Only read Richelle Mead's Homecoming**

Rose and Dimitri...isn't that the only thing that matters? and it was even better because they went back to Dimitri's hometown to see his family and for them to see him...alive and not a Strigoi.

All of Dimitri's family makes me laugh and I loved how Rose still fit right in. I couldn't get enough of the little looks between Rose and Dimitri and they just fit...perfectly.

Of course, they have to go on a Strigoi hunt but the best thing about that was the hot...more

We all wanted an epilogue to Rose and Dimitri’s story. We all wanted more after the stunning conclusion that was Last Sacrifice and Richelle Mead?

She bloody gave it to us like the amazing author that she is!!

description

Homecoming was written in typical Richelle Mead fashion. It was:

Snarky.

Action-filled

Humorous.

And generally, FRICKING AMAZING!!


The characters were no less wonderful. Rose remained the kick-ass, smart-mouthed heroine that she was. Dimitri kept to his mysterious, yet I-know-I-can-drop-you-on-th...more

A Dimitri quote from foretold *madwomen squeal*

"I haven’t even really tried to win you over, Roza. When I want to, I can be very persuasive.”

*THIS REVIEW IS FOR RICHELLE MEAD'S 'HOMECOMING' ONLY*

Wow, that's all I can say right about now. Revisiting the Vampire Academy world is not a new thing these days, what with the Bloodlines series continuing the VA adventures; but revisiting in the mind of Rose Hathaway - AMAZING!

I had been missing Rose's voice for so long. The brief glimpses we've had of her in Bloodlines were not enough to keep my need for more Rose from making me go insane. It was incredible the way I fell back into Rose's...more

Homecoming

"I haven’t even really tried to win you over, Roza. When I want to, I can be very persuasive."

I really, really, really missed my Rozka. I didn't even realize how much until I read this. I was smiling like an idiot the whole time! I don't think I'll ever get tired of these two. It's nice that they get happy moments like these. After everything they've been through in VA, they definitely deserve this! Now I need a Rozka wedding.

Preview of the story can be found HERE.

CAN'T WAIT!

There is a total of 14 stories with the theme, prophecy and prediction. I'm going to write a short review to each of these stories and give it a rating. The final rating will be the weighted rating of all these stories.

1. Gentleman Send Phantoms by Laini Taylor
It's about three girls who are waiting for the phantom of the man that they are going to marry on St. Faith's Day. St. Faith's Day is a special day where a girl can lure forth the phantom of the man she'll marry, see this man's...more

I simply loath this type of commercial stunt. Why couldn't the short story about Rose and Dimitri be either sold separately or given for free? It's very common for renowned authors to write short stories and present them to their readers as a sort of thank you. But unfortunately there are those who are too greedy and they want to milk it till no end. One more point against Richelle and the team behind her.
Jo ★  The Book Sloth★
We are first introduced to Dimitri's family in Blood Promise(which is my favorite book in the series where Rose is concerned), when Rose visits them in the hopes of finding clues on Dimitri's whereabouts after he was turned. In that book we get a glimpse of how "blood-whore" communities work, which is nothing like one would expect by all of Rose's prejudice.

In this short story Dimitri and Rose go to Siberia for a visit about two weeks after the events of Last Sacrifice. Dimitri still tries to fi...more

I don't care what anyone says, Rose and Dimitri are the BEST YA couple EVER! This short story has me craving for more Romitri. Reading about them, secure in their relationship was just amazing. Made me so happy. Thank you Richelle for creating such beautiful characters, and please continue to give us more of their story.
Oksana
Since I'm a fan of Rose and Dimitri, both as separate characters and as a couple, I was very excited about 'Homecoming'. It's a very short novella, and it takes place after all the events that happened in the sixth installment of 'Vampire Academy' series 'Last Sacrifice'.
Rose and Dimitri go to his hometown Baia in Siberia, to inform and prove to Dimitri's family that he's no longer a strigoi. Naturally, all the relatives are happy about the news, and the celebration is in order. But, of course,...more
Klara Louise
Rose Hathaway and Dimitri Belikov, where do I begin. They touched my heart in a unique way through the Vampire Academy series, but I never felt that when Last Sacrifice finished it was right, I could still feel all of the lose ends. So when I found 'Homecoming' those lose ends were tied up and I finally felt like I could sleep easy about Rose and Dimitri and know that everything they went through to be together was finally at a close and that they could be together and have no one tear them apar...more

ROSE AND DIMITRI'S STORY??

The interaction between Dimka's grandmother and Rose was just priceless. xD

Foretold
When I heard that Foretold had Dimitri and Rose’s story which takes place after the last VA book, I was immediately on the hunt to get my hands on this anthology. Then, I come to find out that Laini Taylor was in the line-up too! Okay, move over bookers this anthology has my name written all over it!!

Jana (The Book Goddess)
Alright. I'm definitely not the first one to admit I only bought and read this for Richelle Mead's story. Who wouldn't want to read about one of our favorite YA couples Dimitri and Rose again? I sure missed them.

Anyway, the short story 'HOMECOMING' is such a gem. I loved it. The only bad thing I have to say about it is that it's too freaking short. But it's still filled with some romance, action and humor. Can I just say how much I loved Dimitri's creepy grandmother? She was just hilarious. And...more

[No stars, because I've only read Richelle Mead's short story]

So, no. I'm not going to fangirl. 'Cause, you know, I'm not a fangirl.
Can you hear this noise? It's so NOT me fangirling over Rose and Dimitri's awesomeness.

(view spoiler)

Nope. Not even a little bit. Not even at all.
Alela
been waiting for Belikov family reunion

XXXXX

I have read only R. Mead's Rose&Dimitry's short story, I liked getting a bite of that couple again, but somehow it didn't feel the same, the story and the feeling behind it felt obligatory, very structured and stiff, it was written like step-by-step - intro, problem issued, big and "very dangerous" adventure, and the epilogue. I know the structure is important in every story, but somehow when I read the book I don't want to see it put so obviously...more

“You’ve given some pretty convincing arguments, but you’re still a long way from winning me over.”

“I haven’t even really tried,” he said, in a rare moment of arrogance. “When I want to, I can be very persuasive.”

“Yeah? Prove it.”

His lips moved toward mine. “I was hoping you’d say that.”
