Feb 20, 2009

it was amazing
bookshelves: made-me-cry
Read in February, 2009 , read count: 2

** spoiler alert ** Just finished reading it yesterday.

I don't know why. It just made me cry. It was one one of the books that you just look back and see how much a character has grown, how much she has learnt.
Her giving up Dimitri and saying she wants him to be happy was very touching that I just cried.

Rose at book 1 was really looking for trouble. She was a risk-taker, and she pretty much broke the rules. In book 2, Rose was selfish, and she sort of used Mason. In the end, she decided that she didn't love him, and realized doing that was only going to hurt them more. She realized that love could not be forced. -Which pretty much said that she understood what love is, showing her growth from book 1.
Ironically, Rose was the one who scolded her classmates for breaking the rules, while on book 1, she broke the rules herself.
She was a very quick learner, and she understood that she couldn't take on the Strigoi easily, not like she has previously assumed. In the end, she killed two.

What I love about Vampire Academy books is that they are deep. It shows a person a lot: how you could find the strength in weakness, courage in fear, surviving in suffering, love from misunderstanding, and truth in lies.

Quotes Ria Lize Liked

Richelle Mead
“You can't force love, I realized. It's there or it isn't. If it's not there, you've got to be able to admit it. If it is there, you've got to do whatever it takes to protect the ones you love.”
Richelle Mead, Frostbite

“You know what would help?" I asked, not meeting his eyes.


"If you turned off this crap music and put on something that came out after the Berlin Wall went down."

Dimitri laughted. "Your worst class is history, yet somehow, you know everything about Eastern Europe."

"Hey, gotta have material for my jokes, Comrade." Still smiling, he turned the radio dail. To a country station.

"Hey! This isn't what I had in mind," I exclaimed. I could tell he was on the verge of laughing again.

"Pick. It's one or the other."

I sighed. "Go back to the 1980s stuff."

He flipped the dail, and I crossed my arms over my chest as some vaguely European-sounding band sang about how video had killed the radio star. I wished someone would kill this radio.”
Richelle Mead, Frostbite

Tandra Godin Every Thing you said is true. i think the samething. rose needs to understand her fellings. She thought she liked Mason But She really liked Dimitri, even loved Him. I think she shouldnt have used Mason and maybe he wouldnt be dead

Ria Lize Yeah, she shouldn't have used Mason. He did kind of help her in Shadow Kiss, though, which he wouldn't have been able to do if he lived.

Dina I agree what you said was true....and she deffinetly should not have used Mason

Alissa I completely agree! great review!

Julie Nguyen Omg! I cry a little, too. And Rose never get to tell him the truth. Aww.

Tania I cried during the last 10 chapters on and off. Lol...(blushing)....

Kuljeet Omg, yes!! I love how Rose says Dimitri can be with Tasha. It's so touching and she's really grown on me, even though I don't like her kissing and "almost sleeping with" every guy she knows. That's not the definition of a "badass" Richelle!! lol

Amanda Jerez Completely agree c':

Montana I tottaly aggree but Mason was a really nice guy maybe if Rose didn't tell him were the strigoi were he would still be alive
