Vampire Academy - Richelle Mead After debating what book I should read next, I finally settled on this one. So here's what I just wanted to say: I finally read the Vampire Academy! How awesome is that? LOL. Okay. This book is really good, and I liked it, as well as the writing and the characters. I liked Rose's smart-ass and cool character which is very opposite to that of her bestfriend, Lissa. But even then, they trust and care for each other no matter who the guardian and the royal is, and I admire that. I can't really say it's the best, though. The book, I mean. I've had my fair share of vampire books read, after all. I'm not much in a hurry to read the sequel but I'm definitely going to!
