Note to reader!

I try not to reveal too much of the book's major plots but some times I can't help it to give an overall idea of what I personally thought. I try not to ruin the book for anyone and sorry if I do so. Any of the books I write about have been read recently so that the review is fresh in my mind. Some books I will reread and post again later but if you have a request let me know, it will take me a while to go through my library again.

Also I try very hard to find the cover art from the actual book that I have some times this is not possible and I may result to a more common known cover. At no time will I ever post a book cover with a movie poster on it I like the originality and imagination of books movies just ruin what the readers imagination is capable of creating.

Rating Scale: The books I post here will be set on a rating scale. The scale being from 1-5 one being most likely to read again and 5 being least likely to read again.

Vampire Academy

Vampire Academy Plot Summary
This is a new series for me suggested by a friend and, it was a good suggestion. If this opinion continues throughout the sequels, there may be several entries in close succession rolling out.

This book was a little slow to start but it did well enough to keep me interested.  It has one of those, start just past the beginning and piece it together as we go, beginnings.  Good tactic because you want the whole story before you veto a book and by the time you get all the information you might as well finish it right?!  Grammatically, there were several misspellings, more than usual.  Now I know my spelling sucks too but I don't get paid to write.  It was annoying when I had to re-read a line over and over again because a "T" was missing or there was an extra letter in the middle of a word that changed the word to something else entirely.  This may have just been a problem at the printer and not with the writer in general so it will in no way change my opinion on the story.

I enjoyed this book more than the majority of the Twilight books, and I liked the twilight books.  This story had better vampires, better fighting, and magic!  Who doesn't love magic mixed with the elements?   The main characters are two teenage girls, which is a refreshing change from the normal YA structure that is inevitably boy+girl.  One of the girls is in training to be a bodyguard so she gets her ass kicked a lot, so the action is somewhat there.  Then there is, of course, the drama that goes with being  a teen girl in high school.   This book like so many others does have some of that YA predictability; like the sole virgin amongst all the sinners, but not nearly as bad as some.  So, we have the typical teen drama for the guilty pleasure and then fighting and magic for the story line. A- but, I would definitely call this a chick book so male readers beware.
