Freshman year sucks for Vlad Tod. Bullies still harass him. The photographer from the school newspaper is tailing him. And failing his studies could be deadly. A trip to Siberia gives “study abroad” a whole new meaning as Vlad connects with other vampires and advances his mind-control abilities, but will he r...more

Now, they're not particularly hard exams. Most of us students finish them in twenty minutes. The problem? It's supposed to take two hours. So that leaves us with a lot of time on our hands.
I needed a book, see. So I went through the shelves at my local book store to find a thin, quick read. Normally, I would have opted for a fluffy Sarah Desson-ish book, but something caught my eye. It was a thin, titless cover on display beside a Twilight counter. Picking it up, flipping ...more
After the 6th goddamn time Heather Brewer completely and utterly misused "bemused" and its various forms, I gave up. Six times in a book that isn't even 300 pages long. As well, I started to notice that she seems to think "smirk" is simply a synonym for "smile", because she uses it in some extremely awkward places.
It's alarming, that it a ...more
My problem is the book only skims the vampire world and its code. It does not provide a lot of details why the audience shouldn't be on the slayers side. Though the vampire may be nice people to talk with. There is no getting around what they feed on. Darren Shan did provide a dividing line between the good an ...more
Now we join Vladimir Tod in his first year of high school. The worst four years of your life with the added bonus of being a half-vampire. Not only that but now with the added threat of a vampire slayer and a nosy student who wants to reveal what Vladimir is to the world. If Vlad thought the only thing he had to worry about being fresh meat and his love life then he's going to be dead wrong.

Vlad is now in the ninth grade, which means he's attending Bathory High School. However, some things don't change. He's still getting bullied, continues to be tongue-tied around the girl he likes, one of his classmates suspects he's some sort of monster, and he's become the target of a slayer. He's also developed a good friendship with his best friend's cousin, who's come to stay for a while.
At least he's n ...more
In all honesty this bored me a little. I found it a little hard to focus at certain points in this book. The plane ride for instance.
I really didn't like that Vikas and Otis tried to change Vlady, his eating habits and how he used his abilities. But it's not like Vlad spoke up against it either. Which really bothered me because in my opinion he should've been a little more "if I don't wanna, I don't have ta." But that's ...more

The Chronicles of Vlidmir Todd was an awesome book about a vampire-human teenager who lives with his vampire-human bestfriend, Henry. Vlad ( short for Vladimir ) and Henry where secretly half vampires that tried to live normal lives, much like humans. They both were freshmen in high school, attending Bathory High.
At the beginning of the school year, Henry’s cousin, Rodney, who was also a vampire, ended up moving to Bathory and attending Bathory high, along with V ...more
