Is anyone else just wanting to read this for Dimitri and Rose's story?

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.

*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

I just can't wait for Rose and Dimitri the Stigroi's story. I hope so much that it is being released in Australia!

**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

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!!

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-can-drop-you-on-the-grou

How could I possibly resist the opportunity for more Dimitri Belikov. Easy, I couldn’t! And so I bought the entire Foretold: 14 Tales of Prophecy and Prediction compilation JUST to read 40 pages of Dimitri and Rose, and I really enjoyed it.

Taking place a few weeks after the end of Last Sacrifice, this little story shows us Dimitri’s return home to Siberia to visit his family after the dramatic events at the end of the Vampire Academy series. Of course, while they’re in town, they get roped into

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.

*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

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.

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.

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.

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

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,

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

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

Some of the stories are okay, a few of them are outstanding but as a whole this story collection book is on the disappointing side, here's my comment on each story:

Laini Taylor's r's Gentlemen Send Phantoms feels very average, the writing is nice and the story is descent and interesting, but it's nothing too outstanding. 3.5 stars.

One True Love by Malinda Lo is great, and you can always count on Malinda Lo to give you worthy LGTB YA stories. 5 stars.^_^

Misery is pretty much okay-ish. But nothing
