As I said,I quite liked the first one,not as much as everybody out there,but it was interesting and I started to like vampires as creatures.This is,however,was as enjoyable as the first.It was not better for me.The...more
The same can not be said for Frostbite. The lore of Vampire Academy hasn’t changed but the complexities and further insight, or perhaps just familiarity have lessoned the ache of it. It’s also dealt with differently and in a more realistic way – which is in direct ascension with the g ...more
Oh dear... I seem to be ever so slightly... hooked. How did this happen? I was proceeding with caution, I swear I was but... my god, this book was good. I liked it even better than the first one in this series, I honestly have nothing but praise for this book. I shall of course have to accept my fate when they start to go downhill, but there's always a chance that by then my obsession will have ran so deep that I won't even care in my lust to find out what happens to Rose and Lissa and Dimitri.
Well that's just silly. If you die to be with someone, you wouldn't be able to be with them, cause you'd be dead! Plus, like everything else in this book, that's such a melodramatic statement.
I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what the big deal over this series is. It’s recommended all over the place, the star average for this is really good, and it’s really popular – maybe I got my hopes up too high? I read the first one, was indifferen ...more
Might have spoilers:
Rose has become sightly an adult and now she realizes her mistakes and her relationships with many people increased. I always liked Rose because she is a strong kick-ass heroine and can handle anything ...more
If you’ve been following my reviews for a while you probably would have noticed that I rarely reread books. I’m not the fastest reader so I’d usually rather read new books than reread ones that I’ve already experienced. However, with the Vampire Academy novels I had no trouble rereading the first two books because they’re just so addicting that you can’t help but fly through them even if you don’t have much time.
What I Liked:
➨ More Dimitri! Yay!
You can never go wr ...more
Bada Bing. Bada Boom.
And while Rose may do all those things, she does them in her own way and her own time and becomes a fully fleshed girl whose mistakes you might cringe at but you understand. That's ...more
I didn't think that this series could get any better than the first one but I was wrong. I really enjoyed reading this book and can't wait for the next one.
There was action but that wasn't my main reason for liking Frostbite. Rose was changing so much during the book. One way was her relationship with her mom. Rose had been hating her mom but as I was reading, I was starting to see how similar they are to each other and I was so glad about the ending that they had. Rose and Dimitri was anothe ...more
Finally, the first review I write for 2015 and it's going to be more of a rant...
Frostbite is the second book in the Vampire Academy series. I was really looking forward to reading it (and the rest of the series). But unfortunately the things that mildly bothered me in the first book were very annoying in this one. My main problem is Rose. She is such a vengeful, pitiful and immature person that is really hard for me to feel for her. She keeps complaining about Lisa not having time fo ...more
Frostbite was such a fantastic read! In this book, I got to know more of Rose and her life in the Vampire Academy. There were lots of exciting events that happened, including their adventure trip to Idaho wherein the students and the guardians intended to escape Strigoi threats. And of course, it was nice to finally meet the infamous Adrian Ivashkov. Fancy meeting this hot dude because indeed, he’s one swoony guy! I totally love his character. He reminds me so much of Dae ...more
We have some Rose/Dimitri drama. Jealousy, fighting, Dimitri finally accepting his feelings for Rose and understanding that they won't go away.
Rose beeing a kickass.
Some Rose/Christian scence and cooperation which I always love.
Alot of crying.
And most importantly.... This is the first book that Adrian makes an appearance...
I honestly don’t know why it took me so damn long to read Vampire Academy... and then waited months before reading Frostbite. After (finally) reading it, I’m sold... but where do I start? The amazing BFF relationship? Unique, fascinating mythology? The swoo ...more
I get that she's 17, but she has been indoctrinated into this lifestyle since she was barely out of diapers. She should have dealt with her impulse-control issues by the age of 12. She should have learned about killing Strigoi much sooner. After all, th ...more
(view spoiler)[- The recaps are annoying. I skipped the first part before chapter 1 (I think that part is great - you can skip it or if it's been a while read it for a refresh) but the parts ...more
OMG, I am really starting to love this series. Is it cringe-worthy at times? Sure is. Is it teen-angst filled drama? Yep, guilty. Is it so much damn fun? HELL YEAH!
So this is the book where we get introduced to the infamous Adrian that I have heard so much of from VA fans. He certainly didn't disappoint. He did leave me with one problem though! I don't know if I'm team Adrian or Team Dimitri! TOO MANY HARD CHOICES!
Liked that ...more

WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME THIS SERIES WOULD RUIN MY LIFE?
DAMN YOU BOOK DAMN YOU
I admit that I have a terrible personality flaw, and it's that sometimes, I can be the worst hipster. It's been a long journey for me from the classic-reading snobby teenager I was to the adult who shrieks about ships on the internet and proudly draws fan art. Vampire Academy was an unfortunate casualty of my hipster snob years where I wasn't so into vampires or love triangles or thin ...more
Frostbite was much more action packed than the first book, and there was more of this.
Luckily, still none of that.
I want to give Rose and Dimitri a kick in the ass to get them moving. But, that was part of my prediction in book 1, so I'm not surprised.
There's some annoying teen angst, again, not shocked.
I'm liking the darker tone increasing as I go. A bit of disbelief at the end.
So far, VA and ...more
