message 1: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (sarahashari) I love these books! What do you guys think of them?


message 2: by S.S. (new)

S.S. (ssrice) | 75 comments Just reading the first ones, but they are well written, with believable characters.

Also like Chloe Neill's vamp series.


message 3: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (sarahashari) I read the first of Neill's series last year. I plan on reading that one again and the rest soon.


message 4: by Heather (new)

Heather | 166 comments Vampire Academy series is very good and the next one comes out later this year. The only thing the author does that drives me crazy are the cliffhangers!


message 5: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (sarahashari) I know! But it's fun trying to guess what will happen.


message 6: by Nat (new)

Nat | 5 comments I love the vampire academy books, I have re-read them a few times actually. The characters are fantastic and so lovable, especially Rose and Dimitri =D It is definitely one of my favourite series. I can't wait until the last book is released in December.

Laura Beth (tampabookworm) | 229 comments Loving them! I am on the 3rd one now...


message 8: by Susan (new)

Susan I have got to start this series!!!


message 9: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (sarahashari) Yes, you have GOT to. It's way better than Twilight.


message 10: by Susan (new)

Susan Uggghhh my TBR pile just keeps on growing!! LOL


message 11: by Jaimie (new)

Jaimie (jaimier) | 1275 comments I loved this series and can not wait until the last one comes out in December.

**spoiler**




I didn't think I would ever want to see Rose with anyone but Dimitri however I have to say that after the last one (even starting with the one before it) I love Adrian. He has turned out to be so interesting and sweet and well he is different from Dimitri but in a totally good way and I don't know that our russian love is ever going to bounce back to what he was. There is a lot of scar tissue there and it would be hard to get over the fact that you tried to kill and/or force your lover to become the last thing she would ever want to be, I'm just saying...


message 12: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (sarahashari) I was in love with Adrian from Frostbite. He's good looking, rich, charming, and hilarious...you can't get better than that.


message 13: by Hillary (new)

Hillary (eledri) | 24 comments Im with you Jaimie. I was one of those who didn't think I'd be able to stand Rose with someone other than Dimitri, even though I always liked Adrian.

I liked them together after this last one. You got to see the side of him that was only hinted at there possibly being. I liked that.

I still however must say I hold out hope for poor old Rose and Dimitri.

Poor Adrian...stuck in the middle...


message 14: by Courtney (new)

Courtney (cklueh) This series is a MUST-read for YA fic. Each one is better than the last. The characters all mature and make tough decisions. I won't post any more spoilers, but I'm cheering for Adrian. "Adrian, Adrian, he's our man..."


message 15: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (sarahashari) If prefer Adrian but I'm fine with whoever she ends up with. I find myself rooting for whoever's in the scene. When she's with Dimitri I keep thinking, "Kiss her you fool!" and when she's with Adrian it's more like, "Screw Dimitri, go with Adrian!"


♡Meme♡Reads love♡ | 68 comments Just read the first book to the series. LOVED IT!! :)


message 17: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Railey I LOVE this series. I haven't read the last book yet but I was pulling for Adrian after Blood Promise. In my opinion, this series wipes the floor with Twilight.


message 18: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (sarahashari) Of course it does! Much better storyline, way better writting, kick-ass characters.


message 19: by Annie (new)

Annie  (anncraven) This is one of my all-time fave series. I cannot wait until Last Sacrifice comes out!


♡Meme♡Reads love♡ | 68 comments On the last chapter of Spirit Bound (Vampire Academy, #5) by Richelle Mead I can't wait for the next one.... I think I went through these books to fast. :)


message 21: by Laura Beth (new)

Laura Beth (tampabookworm) | 229 comments I am in the middle of that one right now Meme! Loving it!


message 22: by Courtney (new)

Courtney (cklueh) Don't they just seem to get better? Each time I read the new one, it became my favorite of the series.


♡Meme♡Reads love♡ | 68 comments I agree Courtney they do get better and better!

Laura I'm taking my time with the last chapter I don't want it to end yet! How long till the next book???


message 24: by Laura Beth (new)

Laura Beth (tampabookworm) | 229 comments It comes out in December!


♡Meme♡Reads love♡ | 68 comments Thats way too long!!!


message 26: by Laura Beth (new)

Laura Beth (tampabookworm) | 229 comments Not too bad! At least it is not another year! :0)


♡Meme♡Reads love♡ | 68 comments Yeah thats true, I just wanted to wine... ;)


message 28: by Annie (new)

Annie  (anncraven) Meme, Spirit Bound is my fave of the entire series. I was able to get my copies of her books signed by her when she came to Toronto last month.

I'm going to be super sad once this series is over. Imagine waiting a full year until the new spinoff book comes out. Agoonnnyy.


♡Meme♡Reads love♡ | 68 comments Wait there is going to be a spinoff???
WOW! Wonder who is going to be in those books?
Don't know if I can handle it.. he he ;)...... The Mortal Instruments already have me going crazy over wondering if Jace and Clary are gonna stay together. I'm Scurred..lol


message 30: by Annie (new)

Annie  (anncraven) Yup! She's writing it right now. She said that Sydney is one of the characters we're going to see, but she won't spill on who the others are yet. :) Teeeeeeeeeease.

The Mortal Instruments is also great. One of my faves too! Keep reading, Meme! I really hope you enjoy it. Isn't Jace so awesome? and Hot? and sexy? LOL.


♡Meme♡Reads love♡ | 68 comments Yeah girrrl very H.O.T. :)


message 32: by Samita (new)

Samita Spinoff? Oh no. Between Spirit Bound and Blood Promise my interest in this series waned. Blood Promise specially. I do like Richelle's writing, but I've had enough of this series.

Wow, that's new. I've rarely met people that don't like Va. Why don't you like it anymore?


message 34: by Christie (new)

Christie | 3 comments I will admit that Blood Promise kinda got me out of the series alittle...But decided to continue with Spirit Bound and I am awaiting the new one...impatiently.


message 35: by Laura Beth (new)

Laura Beth (tampabookworm) | 229 comments Spirit Bound was actually my least favorite in the series so far. I so love Richelle that I am now going to read Succubus blues....


RomanceNovelNews.com (RomanceNovelNews) | 13 comments I read the first four in a row and hated that I had to wait for the fifth. Now the final book is coming out and I am grateful to be getting an advance copy! I loved Dimitry in the fourth book when he was evil. He was very alluring. I'm not worried at all about Rose getting out of trouble and thought the ending in book five was not a cliffhanger at all. (I was a little disappointed there.) I hope the series finale will be good.


message 37: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (sarahashari) Advanced copy! You're so lucky!


message 38: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca | 97 comments Last Sacrifice comes out tomorrow!!! Im so excited! Does anyone know if you can get the ebook at midnight?


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) I pre-ordered it for the Nook, and usually they're pretty good about delivering on time. Sometimes you'll get it an hour or two late, but that's rare.


message 40: by Jaimie (new)

Jaimie (jaimier) | 1275 comments You can read the first chapter already - however it kind of just frustrated me because I wanted to keep going.

Thats why I decided not to read it.


message 42: by Jaimie (new)

Jaimie (jaimier) | 1275 comments Read Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy, #6) by Richelle Mead yesterday and I really enjoyed it. I am going to miss these books - I just love Rose.


message 43: by Kourtni (new)

Kourtni (kourkyloo) | 602 comments I know, it's so bittersweet to finish a good series. I am going to miss Rose as well.


Shannen *aka Mrs. Jericho Barrons* (shannybananny71) My hubby just finished Vampire Academy and has started Frostbite. I love being able to talk with him about books. I need to finish this series before him. :)


message 45: by Kourtni (new)

Kourtni (kourkyloo) | 602 comments You are a lucky woman Shannen. Oh how I would love to talk books with my hub. You do need to finish! Go! Read!


Shannen *aka Mrs. Jericho Barrons* (shannybananny71) I am lucky. I really didn't think he would want to read any of the books I have read but one night, he needed something to read and I gave him Twilight. :) Now, he has the Kindle app on his phone and doesn't know how to buy books so he reads mine. Haha!

I will say that he likes pretty much every book that I have told him to read, including the Mortal Instruments series, Hunger Games series, Fever series and Midnighters series. He still needs to read the Darkest Powers series. I keep trying to get him to read Midnight Breed or BDB but he's not going for that. LOL!


message 47: by Kourtni (new)

Kourtni (kourkyloo) | 602 comments That's too funny. I was reading Lover Avenged last week and my hub sat down next to me and asked if I was enjoying my "dirty porno book". LoL You would think men would enjoy reading a "dirty porno book"!


Shannen *aka Mrs. Jericho Barrons* (shannybananny71) I thought he would like it too but apparently men are visual creatures. Hehe!

You're lucky! I can get my husband to read some of my books, but not usually UF/PNR. They have to be more sci-fi ish like Hunger Games, Maze Runner, etc. I don't think I could get him to read VA or Fever, and definitely not something like BDB. I feel awkward even reading BDB around him. He was looking funny at me the other day when I was reading a Lisa Kleypas historical romance.


message 50: by Chantal (new)

Chantal (chantal23) | 5 comments I just started reading the very first one in the series, and I'm already sucked in! I love it so far!
