Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
Series: Vampire Academy #1
Publication Date: May 26th 2009
A couple of months ago I read the Graphic Novel version of The Vampire Academy because for some reason my library never had the first book but had the rest of the books. But my lovely boyfriend bought me a copy of The Vampire Academy last month and I just had to pick up it asap!
Although I'd got the basic storyline from the graphic novel, I loved getting the more indepth story line while reading the book. I learnt a lot more about the characters and the background of this story and I really loved that!
I adored Rose so much! She's such a badass character! She's smart, tough, snarky and so damn amazing. Her friendship with Lissa was so strong and Rose would do absolutely anything for her. She's so protective and doesn't back down, and they're the main reasons I love her so much.
I still wasn't a major fan of Lissa's character though. She still seemed so dependent on Rose and didn't really seem to have a backbone. She was always relying on Rose to fight her battles and then when she wanted to help she went ahead and abused her powers. I kind of wanted to slap some sense into her most of the time.
I adored Christian and Dimitri! They were both hot and amazing in completely different ways. Christians was the dark and brooding loner guy, and Dimiti was the extremely hot older guardian. I loved both of them so much, but I think Christian has to be my favourite <3
I loved everything about the story line of this novel. I loved learning about the different kinds on vampires and what they can all do; learning about all of the characters; learning about the history of some vampires and I adored all the action! There was so much action and a lot of unexpected twists that kept me on my toes!
Overall, this was such an amazing vampire novel. It had badass characters, an amazing story line and some girly drama (which I loved!). I definitely can't wait to get my hands on Frostbite now!
