    I love the Vampire Academy series. It’s such a different take on the vampire genre. Rose Hathaway is a strong independent like-able main character. Also I love love love Adrian Ivashkov. There are so many great characters that it can be hard to choose a favorite. The series is full of twists and new characters. Each book gets better then the previous. Spirit Bound was my favorite.

    Hey K sisters!!

    I am so glad you’re doing Vampire Academy for this month! I love the books, it is number 2 on my list below twilight

    The reason being the difference in the “genre” of vampire. Love that its not all, super speed, super strength or super hottiness. It even add in some magic that being the moroi. And I really love Rose! She is strong, independant and reckless(sometimes, my type, *wink*)

    And the cliffhanger in the fifth book just pisses me off! (Kidding) I am glad that’s there is more as I was craving for more!

    Oh, people, its not twilight-ish, its another story of its own and a whole new type of vampire(s)!

    Worth the read!

    Wow you guys are going to finally read Vampire Academy Series. These 5 books are great. But not as good as Twilight of course. But they came into a close second. The Rose Dimitri and Adrian drama reminds me so much of the Twilight triangle. But don’t worry Kassie and Kallie once you start reading the books you won’t be able to put them down.

    Finally i was eagerly waiting for you gals to pick these books as your book of the months. I fell in love with this series when i was on holiday in NYC and havent stopped loving them ever since. Personally my favourite character would have to be Rose, not only can she kick major butt but she is also a typical teenager and is a very loyal and loving friend to Lissa . She is a lovable character and most girls can relate to her. She also show that this an’t a mans world. =p

    YAY!!! i’m so happy you guys picked this one it’s my favorite right after Twilight
    my favorite character is Dimitri, i love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love him a lot. He’s just Russian and awesome and his character has all these little quirks that are so endearing like how he loves westerns and 80′s music plus i think its cute when Rose calls him comrade.(SPOILER) i cried so bad when he went strigoi. My favorite book was Blood Promise; the way she described Russia and i liked that Rose and Lissa had space to grow. Plus i was crying like every page because of what she was there to do.. love the show ladies (did i mention love; lol)

    this is Great this series is my third favorite series after Twilight and The House of Night. well all of them are amazing but my favorite ones are Blood Promise and Spirit Bound. my favorite Character is Roza because she is independent, loyal, (reckless, even if it put her in trouble) , and i kind of like Lissa but just because she is a spirit user. My favorite male character is Adrian (which i think Rose should end up with) because i think he a good fellow, and sweet, and because it seen that he really love Rose. can wait for the next book !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Mary says:

    I love Richelle Mead. I love this series just as much as twilight. Love Adrian though I love Demetri I just find that relationship is a dead end. I can’t wait for December. So happy your FINALLY going to talk about these books. You should read her dark swan series too though it’s a bit more adult

  9. Arianne says:

    You guys should really stop posting this kind of stuff! This is a twilight website and I come here to get the scoop on twilight not some other book!

  10. Jenifer says:

    I love this book! My favorite character is Rose and I REALLY hope she gets to be with Dimitri again.

  11. amaya says:

    i loved the book and my favorite is rose and i dont know who i want her to be with

  12. Maria says:

    ok so this is my favorite series EVER! i definitly loves this more then twilight (still love twilight though so dont even bitch cuz i will bitch right back). Anyway my favorite character is Rose she is soo much like me that it kinda crazy the flirtyness, attitude, protective nature and of course temper all the same as mine. all her reactions are pretty much the same way i would react to something. I’m studying to become a police officer so we can both kick ass. i will also be soo angry if they make this into a movie because it alway ruins the books and no one will ever be happy with the actors. Like I still think Kristen was a bad choice for bella I’m not saying I dont like her as an actress but i just don’t think she plays a good bella like the break up scene in new moon made me laugh i didn’t have the same effect as the book did. honestly hollywood leave books as just books and stop making ever best selling book into a movie it always ruins everything!

    • Cindy says:

      Agree and disagree with you.
      I love this book more than Twilight, mostly because Rose can defend her self and throughout the book you have to marvel at her loyalty and bravery. Bella on the other hand is a damsel in distress, and i’m leaving it there.
      But i disagree with the books into movies thing. I think that movies based on books can be really good.(if they don’t mess it up) For example the Harry Potter series, in my opinion, was not messed up. Sure they had to take some parts out but thats because its a big book, but overall it stuck with the book. Another reason is that “Last Sacrifice”comes out in December right? and well when they do make the movie(Preger Entertainment bought the movie rights to the series) it will take them years to make them so we VA fans will have something to look forward to, plus since theres a movie, there is going to be a LOT of good publicity. :)

  13. Cynthia says:

    OMG… i am such a fan and im even wrighting my own series of what i think what will happen next…. and whats with Dimitri and all of his freekin baby self he used to be a god now hes like one of those guys that would read comic books all day and i bet my life they would be westerns… but still he is like so stupid enough said he may have helped Rose in the end of Spirit Bound but he’s still a baby he needs to get over him self and i bet that Adrian and Rose are going to end up having a kid and then she’s gunna marry him and Dimitri is gunna go psyco!!!!!!!!! And Rose isn’t going to take him back and even if she did he’ll make up another reason why they can’t be together, again… And to all of ya FANGGIRLS out there i think it’s kind of stupid that your never going to meet a guy like Dimitri and you know what your not gunna be like Rose either unless someone has a baby with a fairytail and still it would not happen huh i wonder why but i dolove the books there all i read but i have a fine line of where fantasy and reality are. there are no such things as vampires so get over it ok there probably never will be just like there’s no Santa and no frickin Easter Bunny ok. but i do think i ran him over the other day lol lol lol and chickie that is obsessed with Dimitri get over your self it aint gunna happen ever. never ever ever…..!!!!!!! But that’s about all i have to say i hope i offended every single one of you fantasy jerk-offs… ya that’s it…

  14. Cynthia says:

    get over your selves i couldn’t fit the rest on here and i wanted to offend you more ok so here goes anyone who has been obsessed with twilight vampires do not SPARKLE so stop putting all that body glitter on ok… also vampires have fangs you chicken shits and well that vampire hack can go F**k her selk, again… i also want to say that vampires can not be VEGATERIANS ok your reather on blood or blood there’s not difference ok and don’t go all retarded on me and bella and edward don’t even like each other and rosile and emmit only talk about sex when they talk about them selves. oh and i wonder why carlise only changes teenage kids into vampires huh that would be something to look into. all of the Werewolvs are pedaphiles!!!!!!! Stephanie constanly contradicts her own plot… Bella Swan means beautiful swan HA HA HA HA HA right she is a freekin anemic chick with no frickin powers and all yall are gunna turn out just like her if ya keep dis up kk that’s all i have to say and i really wanted to offend all of you so thank you and get over it.

    • Veronica says:

      Um, I don’t understand why are you here, if you don’t like Twilight?? You do realize this is a Twilight FAN PAGE right??

      Seriously, GET HELP!!!!

    • Cindy says:

      LOL !!
      I agree with most of that, including the sparkling and the werewolf pedophiles. :D

  15. Cynthia says:

    P.S. Bella is a slut!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Kate says:

    And btw. Vampire Academy is great! :)) I love it and I hope that Rose and Dimitri will find their “happily ever after” :)

  17. Sabrina says:

    I love the Vampire Academy series!!! I read the first few about a year ago and was sooooo excited when Spirt Bound came out it is definitely my favorite although I liked the first one too! I really like Rose she is cool and strong and a great friend. Apart from the killing I think that all us girls want to be somewhat like her. I love Dimitri and I really hope that they end up together their so perfect for each other. But due to what’s happened in the last book I think she will end up with Adrian. Anyway loved the books and love the podcast. I have read a few of your other book recommendations (like Shiver and Wings and loved them Thanks Kallie and Kassie!

  18. Nikki says:

    Oh my…yes this is a twilight fan page…apparently some people have nothing better to do with their time than try to bring others down!!!! Cynthia, there is a thing called respect, and also something else you apparently have never heard before….its called puncuation…here are examples ( . – this is a period/ , -this is a comma) If you put some of these in the proper places, it would make your garbage so much easier to read!!! Just tryin to help ya out, lol!!

    On another note, I plan on reading the Vampire Academy Series!!

  19. Hannah says:

    Ok, firstly Cynthia, you really need to see a doctor. People (like me) like these books because they create the fantastic world we seek. Would you rather be out in the world with a normal life, job and family or would you rather have adventures everyday in a world where almost anything can happen, one far better than our own? I know which i’d chose.

    Plus you seem pretty pathetic insulting people that aren’t real. I mean seriously, “Werewolves are pedaphiles”. How could you have mustered that accusation.

    Next, i’d like to say that (as my joint favourite character, along with Rose) Demitri’snew found personality, while aggravating, is understandable. He is upset for what he did (even though it wasn’t his fault) as a Strigio (especially to Rose). He lost his personality and confidence and also beleived he lose his faith, hope and (most importantly) his soul. The very thing that makes him, him and me, me and you, you. If anything I hope he goes back to normal.

    Also, you said how none of us could be like the characters in these books but the characters have certain qualities and traits we see in people everyday. And you also contradict yourself when you say we are going to be like bella swan.
    I also think that although they no go though the same situation, most people will eventually find their own ‘Edward’ or ‘Dimitri’.

    You may feel differently but you have obviously completed both of the series and maybe more like them so you must be attracted to me somehow, so infact you are like us, looking for a better world in the boring world we live in.

    P.s. Why waste your time here if you aren’t inerested.

  20. Hannah says:

    Sorry about the mistakes on the last post it’s quite difficult on my phone. So i’ll correct them here.

    Firstly, instead of “Demitri’snew” I meant ‘Demitri’s new’.

    Secondly, instead of “also beleived he lose his” I meant ‘aslo believed he lost his’.

    Next, instead of, “they no go though” I meant ‘they might not got through’.

    And finally, instead of “attracted to me somehow” I meant ‘attracted to them somehow’, although this one sounded particularly amusing to me.

    Now i’d like to take the chance to say i loved reading the books and love the storyline and all the characters. I can’t wait for the sixth vampire academy book, but I kind of wish he series wouldn’t end. I always feel that there is more to these types of stories. And it doesn’t help that I’m a VERY impatient person.

  21. hawra ali says:

    i just wanna start by saying that i love mead and read her va series the first day it came out and let me say its better than the twilight series by a mile. now i cant believe u guys have to think about it all the signs are there besides i hate adrian with a passion he ruined everything so im team dimitri all the way and she will end up with i mean its ovi in sb that he loves her just by not wanting to see her. book 4 n 5 really broke me down and hit me right where it hurts. ps stop writing cynthia annoyin

  22. zeze says:

    i like the twilight series but the movies sucked i cant believe i wasted my cookies on it the actors still need more skills cuz they sucked in the movie and nothin was like the book. now i rate va 3 out of 5 stars becuz rose is annoying, adrian smokes and drinks too much, dimitri i have no problem with hes actually kickass, and mason was my fav but of course he had to die. you gals should read the summoning by kelly armstrong the book is action packed and derek is awesome, tori is funny,chloe rocks. smack

  23. stargazer says:
