Losing Mom: Functional Structure in Nominals: They go on a rescue mission and are almost close to winning when Dimitri is attacked and Rose later finds out that his body wasn't found.
I am astounded. I am dumbfounded. I am, to my core, shook. I reread a book that I liked in Especially not books that I like I am Especially not books that I liked before. Isla and the Happily Ever After, for example.
Or A Court of Mist and Fury. The Selection. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
The Night Circus. Just One Year. The year of the reread has uh And then THIS book comes out of the woodwork. I literally expected to hate this book before rereading it. It has vampires. The villains are mostly teenage girls girlhatecentral. The central romance is between a 17 or 18 year old honestly not too sure and a man in his mid-twenties. The whole thing is rife with opportunities for slut shaming.
And yet It was not five stars fun. It was not even four stars fun! But it waaaaas fun. So first off.
A dhampir is a half vampire, half human whose entire existence is dedicated to protecting the Pretty Vampires. There are also Mean Uggo Vampires. They just want blood all the time!!!
Almost like a vampire or something!!! Or, I think, a Mean Uggo Vampire can bite you. I am the worst reader in the world. Okay, so. Bad news first. This book is fun, yes, but it could be one million times more fun.
I solved it obvs and figured out that Vampire Academy would be exactly 1,, times more fun with the following provisions. And over. Pretty Vampires are tall. Also they are pale. Also they are soooooo sleeeeeender you guys. I will never, in my life, forget that Lissa is the last of the Dragomir line. Just cut the repetition Richelle!!!! For my sake plz!!!!!!! A lot of that is based on the construction of the plot and it is garbage, for sure, but whatever.
There is so much drama!!! Apparently the only thing worse in the entire world than making steamy eye contact with a Mean Uggo Vampire is any damage to your reputation. Sure, no problem. But your fellow students finding out you almost died? SO embarrassing. Heaven forbid. In other words: Also, sooooo much of this book toes the line on girl hate and slut shaming. It seems like girls AND boys suck here, even though there are at least two 2 girl villains.
Is that better or worse????? I literally am asking because I cannot tell my own thoughts anymore. Thinking about it makes me feel like Charlie Day in that one episode of Always Sunny. Like, me trying to figure out if Rose hates women: Plus there are only two characters I actually like out of the millions upon millions who exist in this book. I like the gal a lot.
And very badass. Dimitri is the way-too-old-for-Rose love interest Was that funny? I am off my game today , you guys! Please allow me to continue to live in the happy illusion that I am sometimes funny and therefore have a game to be off.
But here we are, you know? Just have to accept it really, in all its devastating off-brand-ness.
Like, yes, vampires, perhaps the least creative mythical creature to put in a young adult novel in the twenty-first century, but otherwise Pretty solid to be totally honest. Bottom line: This is fun and not good but also very guilty pleasure yum great. I must go. View all 24 comments. May 19, Emily Books with Emily Fox rated it really liked it.
I expected a cringe-worthy vampire book and turns out this was good! Very teen-angsty but I will definitely continue the series. PS Don't watch the movie View all 12 comments. I don't know how anyone could read this book and not get completely addicted I mean the writing, the characters, everything about this book is perfect!! Rose is a Dhampir and Dhampirs protect the Moroi.
Rose is that girl you can't help but want to be friends with. Dimitri Belikov is also a Dhampir and Roses training instructor.
He's legendary and is described as a God. He's sexy, strong, Fast as hell, level-headed, brave and a total bad-ass! But he has a soft side to him that not everyone gets to see.
They are 7 years apart in age. When they first meet Rose is 17 and Dimitri is I know a lot of people will see this as wrong and for a lot of other reasons too. But I don't give a shit You can't help who you're attracted too or who you love etc. The attraction and sexual tension between them are hot.
You can't help but root for them in the future. They are the definition of true love and they bring out the best in one another. Dimitri believes in Rose and sees a great guardian in her. Rose plans to be Lisa's proctor.
Dimitri is also assigned to be her proctor. So you can see how that might complicate things. Lisa believes everyone should be treated with respect.
But will also break the rules when it comes to those she loves. Lisa meets a boy named Christian Ozera. Christian is treated like the black sheep. He's snarky and can come across as a first-rate asshole but most of its just show.
He's a hottie who wears lots of blacks. Christian has had it rough and has his walls up. They both have this connection and it draws them to each other. Lisa can be herself with him. I love these two s0 much. It is truly hands down Amazing!! View all 5 comments. Dec 28, E rated it liked it Shelves: I decided to read Vampire Academy because it was on a list of books most likely to inherit Twilight's throne http: Before I harp on about the first Vampire Academy book, I want to comment on the series as a whole: They pull fewer punches than a lot of other supernatural novels, and the series gets quite a bit darker as it progresses.
The characters encounter myriad trials--mental instability, torture, betra I decided to read Vampire Academy because it was on a list of books most likely to inherit Twilight's throne http: The characters encounter myriad trials--mental instability, torture, betrayal, death, and of course true love.
The primary protagonist, Rose, is especially strong; she is tough, quick-tempered, but very clever with a great sense of humor and she develops a depth and sadness as the series progresses. Best of all, I think that most of the books in the series are consistent, building effectively on one another--something I can't say for most sagas.
I wish the characters were allowed to change and deepen a little more in light of certain traumatic events throughout the series though to be fair, I think the whole aftereffect of traumatic events is explored more thoroughly in the spin-off series, Bloodlines. I find the dialogue weirdly wooden and would prefer a little more subtext in it especially for the lest direct, more socially graceful characters like Lissa; Rose is obviously the kind of person who says what she thinks, come hell or high water!
Nonetheless, the books are absorbing, probably my favourite YA vampire novels currently on the market. Now on to a bit about the first book itself: The heady mixture of vicious gossip, the supernatural, and adolescent sexuality there's all kinds of making out creates something compulsively readable and fun.
Sure, the reader has to cope with sentences--stuck in the midst of dead serious scenes--that read "And then, suddenly, he was there, charging down the hallway like Death in a cowboy duster"; sure, the character development is about as subtle as a blow to the head. And yes, it's true that the dialog is full of more dead wood than an old oak tree. None of that matters when your story is narrated by a beautiful liquorish body guard who hates books and gets slap-happy whenever anyone else so much as gives her best friend and ward--a vampire princess yes, a vampire princess --so much as a funny look.
Did I mention that this bodyguard and her princess share a psychic bond? That our tough narrator has a crush on her sexy Russian mentor who quite obviously fancies her as well?
That all of the other vampire royals are full of malice and gossip? That the vampire princess has special powers? How about a war between "good" and "bad" vampires? Oh reader, this book is good fun.

Chapter One. We're presented with a pretty confusing situation, without knowing who's who and what is going on I almost thought I had by mistake picked up the sequel, because it felt like I was missing out on something.
But at least we have what seems like a kick-ass main character, Rose, and a strong female friendship between her and Lisa, s This is a negative review. But at least we have what seems like a kick-ass main character, Rose, and a strong female friendship between her and Lisa, so I was like: Then a mildly interesting premise suddenly turns into high school drama and terrible writing, so I was like: Things keep getting worse, because Rose is acting like the spoiled thirteen-year-old we've all been despite her being what, seventeen?
So, while trying really hard to be a badass, she ends up looking like an immature brat, and I was like: By this point I had almost forgotten about the whole vampire thing, because the book was basically a cheaper version of Mean Girls, with a lot of slut-shaming, girl-on-girl hate and most characters just being juvenile and stupid, so I was like: But then I thought, come on Jun, there must be a reason why so many people love this book You can't give up just yet!
A lot of nonsensical things happened: Enter a rushed and underwhelming ending, and boring characters being more boring than usual. On top of stupidity, internalized sexism and a plot that consisted solely on young girls hating on each other, and on boys calling them names and being generally awful, add some horrible writing and a fucking weird pacing that made me want to DNF the book at least every two pages.
I will not be continuing this series. View all 48 comments. I still loved the book the second time around, although I did drop one star as I'm a bit different now. I always get nervous rereading my old books because I'm afraid I will hate them, BUT, I want to slowly reread everything to see what I'm going to keep.
Fighting cancer changed a lot and hoping it doesn't come back has changed a lot of things. Happy Reading! May 19, Leonie rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: A girl most likely, and pretty much any girl at that: Recommended to Leonie by: No one!

This was a re-read for me considering I have basically been reading these books every year since I was 13 meaning six years.
Coming back to this series is like a warm hug as every character is familar, the plot is familar, the tone is familar. I was glad this re-read was successful as a lot of re-reads I have done this year have left me disappointed. Vampire Academy is a well-known series, whether becasue the covers are ugly or because of the Vampire Academy is a series I am very familar with.
Vampire Academy is a well-known series, whether becasue the covers are ugly or because of the kickass characters or the movie flop I don't know. This series, however, displays some kickass female characters and some kickass female friendships which, how often do you really see in YA?
I won't even try to summarise the story because I'll probably accidentally throw spoilers in, I just recommend picking up this series. Ignore the ugly covers. Pick it up. As a warning this review will be short for two reasons. Also, I am using gifs from the Vampire Academy movie, but that does not mean I really enjoyed said movie. Characters Rose Oh Rose, our kickass female main character.
I could go on forever about Rose. About how absolutely empowering it is to have a female character who can and will kickass.
I mean she's not perfect, she slut shames constantly and is a hypocrite in some aspects.
But, she's a smart ass who will give a lashing to anyone who gives her crap and her main goal is to protect her best friend, Lissa. Rose is a Dhampir, which is basically someone who is half Moroi vampire and half human. She is one of the few females training to become someone who protects the Moroi, the rest labeled "blood whores" - most commonly so by Rose.
I really enjoyed watching Rose train throughout the book and get her strength back, watching the devlopment she has from reckless teenager to dedicated warrior.
Dimitri Dimitri is another Dhampir, someone who is an official Guardian meaning he protects the Moroi as a career. I'll be the first to admit I'm not a Dimitri fan. I don't like him. At all. I find him creepy, unprofessional and slightly unnerving.
He is painted to be a God. To be the best Guardian there is, basically. However, I found his stoic response a lot of the time an asshole move that had me rolling my eyes a lot of the book and every time I read it. I also get slightly unnerved over his feelings for Rose, it is the student-teacher relationship that has me cringing at the pure idea their relationship. Now, thats not to say I don't ship Rose and Dimitri.
I do, I love their progression through the novels and as I re-read this series I think that will become obvious throughout my reviews. It is, however, just the introduction of Dimitri that rubs me the wrong way every time I re-read this series.
Christian Christian is a Moroi who has the affinity over fire, and is one of my favourite characters in this series. He rivals Rose in every way and the pair of them are absolutely hilarious when they are interacting. I always get a good laugh from the banter exchanged from the pair of them throughout Vampire Academy. I can't say too much more about his character, however, without spoiling what happens in this particular book. I mean, I may be able to, but I don't really want to. Lissa Lissa is another Moroi, and Rose's absolute best friend.
The pair of them have been through thick and thin, which includes being in the car crash which murdered Lissa's entire family. Due to this experience, or so it's hinted at, the pair of them have a bond. Now, I don't mean they've connected through the loss of people close to them. I mean, Rose can literally feel what Lissa is feeling.
It is a big strange, yes, but the more we see it through Rose's perspective the more interesting it really gets. Lissa is an incredibly complex character, she has never developed a particular skill over one of the elements like Moroi are supposed to. She struggles with who she is and she has a stronger compulsion over people than others of her kind.
Her progression, downfall, and rise throughout the book are incredible to watch and it only gets more intense the further along you get in the books. World-Building The world-building in the book is incredibly easy to follow. It is set in modern society with a few twists to place the paranormal creatures. Rose also explains what each word means, which doesn't leave you confused and struggling to grasp what a "Moroi" is.
Plot The plot? Writing Mead draws you in with her easy writing style, it's easy to fall in love with and easy to follow the story as it progresses. It's creative, of course, but it isn't complicated in the way you have to fully stop reading to understand the joke that is being made to you. She is also amazing at foreshadowing.
Overall Overall, if I can continue to love this book after six years of re-reads I think I am highly advised to tell you to pick it up. View all 14 comments. Jul 10, Taneika rated it really liked it. I finally decided to bite the bullet and pick this series up. I'll be honest, I did not expect to enjoy this as much as I did! So easy to read and Rose was a spunky, outspoken heroine and I love that Richelle Mead wasn't afraid to make Rose so sexually confident and confident in herself too.
View all 10 comments. Nov 07, Ivana - Diary of Difference rated it liked it Shelves: I finally did it. After years of you guys begging me to read this book, I have finally managed to dig into this vampire world with Lissa — the Moroi mortal vampire and Rose — her guardian, sworn to protect her. Now, they unwillingly return to the Vampire Academy, and try to live their normal lives, but danger is on their doorstep. I loved the plot, and the idea of the world building, even though, I have to admit, I wish we had more pages of the Vampire Academy description.
It is a character quality we rarely see, and it was so well delivered that it gave me shivers for a few scenes. Lissa, well, we hardly get to really know her.
And as of Rose, as much as I admired her bravery and wisdom, sometimes she was just so dumb for her own good. I loved the plot twists, and the cliffhangers, especially the few ones right at the very end, but it took so long for them to come. Unrealistic romances will happen that will make you cringe.
A real smile too — not the dry one that accompanied the sarcasm we tossed around so often. I greatly enjoyed it, but being older I think these things stuck a bit to me. Even though it had a few weak points, I would definitely read the second book of the series. Have you read Vampire Academy? Is it on your TBR? I would love to see what you think! Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Pinterest View all 23 comments. I devour every angsty teen vampire book series I get my hands on. Vampire diaries, Bloodlines, Vampire Academy, Crave, and of course the one that started it all for me, Twilight!!!!!!
Yes I am that mom, the Twimom! And I have no shame! After reading Twilight for like the 9th time and not getting my fill of vampires, this was years ago before I found Goodreads I went to the library to find a new vampire book and came across Vampire Academy. Smart ass, kick ass heroine, Russian warrior god like hero Yes please!!! I loved this read. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because as with many first books in a series this book was a little slow at the first half.
With the details setting up the paranormal world and character development it slowed the book down a bit, but still a really enjoyable read. This series focuses on four people and their relationships with each other, and the world of Moroi, Dhampire, and Strigoi. So I will speak a little about each main character then touch on the plot of this book. Rose Rosemarie Hathaway: Rose is the main Heroine in this series. Vladimir Academy where she is training to be a guardian guardians are Dhampirs trained to protect Moroi the good vampires against the Strigoiki the bad vampires.
Rose's best friend is Lissa and her love interest is Dimitri. Rose has some abandonment issues because she never met her dad and her mom dumped her off at the school to be raised so she could go off and be a guardian.
Rose is a smart mouth, that is loyal, brave and she has a short fuse. Dimitri Belikov: Dimitri is the main hero in this series. He is a 24 year old Dhampir guardian. He is called a god because he is one of the best guardians and has amazing fighting skills.
He is Lissa's guardian and a teacher at St. Vladimir academy. He is the love interest of Rose and he is her guardian trainer. Dimitri is stoic and stand offish. He is totally dedicated to his job. Dimitri is very protective and loyal. Lissa Vasilisa Dragomir: Lissa is a Moroi Princess. She is best friends with Rose and her love interest is Christian. Lissa's whole family is dead killed in a car wreck.
Rose also died in that wreck but Lissa having spirit magic brought her back to life. Now Rose is shadow kissed and has a bond with Lissa. The bond is one way Rose can feel what Lissa is feeling and sometimes she can see through Lissa's eyes.
Lissa feels a lot of guilt that she isn't living up to her family name as she is the last Dragomir. Because of Lissa's spirit magic she gets depressed and has dark painful emotions and cuts herself to feel better. Lissa is sweet, loyal and doesn't treat people badly just because she is a royal. Lissa can't stand for anyone or animal to suffer and wants to help and heal any time she can.
Christian Ozera: Christian is a Moroi royal. He has fire magic. His parents made a choice to turn Strigoi willingly so they could live forever. They were hunted down in front of him when he was a child and killed. He lived with his aunt around humans for a time. He is anti-social, and everyone acts like he doesn't exist. He is very brave and open minded. He wants to fight with the Dhampirs instead of being protected and helpless.
He is very smart, observant, but is insecure and can be jealous. The Plot: The book starts with Rose and Lissa being caught and brought back to St. Vladimir's Academy by Dimitri after being on the run for the last two years in the human world.
As the girls settle back into school life and try to get caught up with their classes and friends some crazy things start happening. Someone keeps killing animals and putting them in Lissa's room. In the spoiler tag is a run down of the rest of the book with heavy spoilers so don't read if you don't want to know view spoiler [ It's Victor Dashkov with the help of his daughter Natalie.
He was testing Lissa to see if she could heal death. Victor is sick and dying and ends up kidnapping Lissa to force her to heal him. He tells her that because he has a chronic disease that would just keep coming back he plans to hold her prisoner and force her to heal him over and over.
Lissa is saved by Dimitri, Rose and Christian. Victor is taken to prison where he has his daughter Natalie turn Strigoi and break him out of prison. Natalie is killed by Dimitri after almost killing Rose. Victor is recaptured. Dimitri tells Rose that he has feelings for her but they can never be because for one he is older and her teacher and for two if he let himself love her he would protect her and not the princess. I could understand why Dimitri would hold back. I loved the sister like friendship between Rose and Lissa.
The way they were there for each other even when they were fighting. The connection between the 4 main characters is built up nicely in this book and felt real. The plot was good and I loved the different take on vampires.
Overall I really enjoyed this read and I can't wait to start book 2. View all 33 comments. Feb 03, mark monday rated it liked it Shelves: Dear Vampire Diary, wait, why did I write that?
I'm half-vampire. I go to a Vampire Academy for chrissakes. I wish I could talk to Dimitri instead.
I'm not really a diary sort of girl, whatever that even means. I love that shoulder length hair. I should talk about more important things like my training and my best friend Lissa and all the plots swirling around her and stupid school cliques and my hectic schedule and what I learned in dimitri today. I want to thank you, Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. I don't want to admit it to myself and I especially don't want to admit how much I like it to other people, they'll think I'm some junkie or some slut or whatever, and if I think too hard about it, I'll probably think the same thing about myself.
I like how you left that ambiguous. I love you for that. I will still read your sequels. Richelle Mead View all 30 comments. Oct 19, Rachel E. Why did I avoid this book like the plague? Well, I have a confession: I hate most vampire books and I only picked this up because I had the paperback lying around and I was sick of it's unread status mocking me Rose was a perfect heroine and I liked how unapologetic she was and her friendship with Lissa.
I'll admit I was rooting more for Lissa and that hot broody jerk what was his name? I just forgot than Dimitri-Rose, but I still loved both. Can't w Why did I avoid this book like the plague? Can't wait to read rest of series since I heard it gets better with each book The only reason I picked up this book was because I'm trying to read all my unread paperbacks at home, so I've got some others to get through first Jan 04, Sabrina The Trash Queen rated it it was amazing.
So many feelings for just one book. Some characters here already have my heart, and this book was so short at least it felt that way I wanted more, but then I still have more 5 books to read, so that satisfies me it better.
The writing was entertaining, easy and fast to read. Is not hard to understand anything because everything makes sense, which is absolutely the best, and the plot twist at the end? And I really liked it. View all 18 comments. Not entirely a miss but a miss nonetheless. My Grievances: Girl-on-Girl Hate: I hate this shit so much Every time I turned a page I was slapped in the face with it! And guess what… the worst culprit in my girl-on-girl hate onslaught was over a boy.
Slut Shaming: Side note: Inappropriate Love Interest: I have known scores of high schoolers with crushes on their teachers…. It made me question one of the only characters I enjoyed in this story. There was really no plot, for me, in this book. There are a few others, as well, but I think these four encapsulate my feelings pretty well. My Happy Places: The Social Hierarchy: And while the Royalty annoyed me it did have a fundamental purpose, overall.
The Guardians: I loved the hard work and dedication that went into it. This moment endeared me to him quite a bit! I adored Christian. His moral ambiguity, his lonerness…. I may read book two for Christian alone. I loved that he was the one character intelligent enough to put everything I guessed together….. Thus they fluttered around like idiots while Christian was over in the enlightened square going all "Guys?!

It's right up my alley for fantasy and although sometimes the characters got on my nerves, I really love the world and the plot and it was all together a great story. Sometimes the writing felt a bit young for me but that doesn't make it any less of a great novel.
