Rose loves Dimitri, Dimitri might love Tasha, and Mason would die to be with Rose...It’s winter break at St. Vladimir’s, but Rose is feeling anything but festive. A massive Strigoi attack has put the school on high alert, and now the Academy’s crawling with Guardians—including Rose’s hard-hitting mother, Janine Hathaway. And if hand-to-hand combat with her mom wasn’t bad enough, Rose’s tutor Dimitri has his eye on someone else, her ...

    Just finished reading it yesterday.I don't know why. It just made me cry. It was one one of the books that you just look back and see how much a character has grown, how much she has learnt.Her giving up Dimitri and saying she wants him to be happy was very touching that I just cried.Rose at book 1 was really looking for trouble. She was a risk-taker, and she pretty much broke the rules. In book 2, Rose was selfish, and she sort of used Mason. In...

    “You can't force love, I realized. It's there or it isn't. If it's not there, you've got to be able to admit it. If it is there, you've got to do whatever it takes to protect the ones you love.” God!!!I love this book!! It was amazing!! This isn't the first time I read this series, and I still love it!I love Dimitri! I love Adrian! I love Christian! “Good God. Men everywhere.” ----------------------------------------------------------...

    Finishing a book in general is exciting. Now, finishing a *Vampire Academy* book is scary.Perhaps this does not apply to all Vampire Academy books—I have yet to be able to decide that—but what do the first two books in the series have in common?They both have wonderful beginnings. Everything is beautiful, everything is just fine. But then something bad happens that brings all the characters down to earth from the clouds they were sleeping on....

    I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. This books picks up shortly after the first book in the series. Rose is still in training with Dimitri and feelings run strong between the two but cannot be acted upon, with both of them being Lissa's (a Moroi princess and Rose's best friend) future guardians. There are some attacks on the Moroi royal families. This sends fear of what should be done to stop the Strigoi. Some feel it is time for th...

    The first book in this series left me feeling a big Meh. It’s confusing, nonsensical premise was distracting, though I felt in some ways it managed to distract from what was essentially a weak plot and simple story.The same can not be said for Frostbite. The lore of Vampire Academy hasn’t changed but the complexities and further insight, or perhaps just familiarity have lessoned the ache of it. It’s also dealt with differently and in a more...

    Oh dear... I seem to be ever so slightly... hooked. How did this happen? I was proceeding with caution, I swear I was but... my god, this book was good. I liked it even better than the first one in this series, I honestly have nothing but praise for this book. I shall of course have to accept my fate when they start to go downhill, but there's always a chance that by then my obsession will have ran so deep that I won't even care in my lust to fin...

    Something is happening to me.Something bad.I don’t know myself anymore.The me I know would never enjoy a book with a love triangle AND a love square. Let alone giving three (well, two and a half) stars to said book, which also includes vampires, high school drama, and something that veers precariously close to girl hate.But here we are.I like the Vampire Academy books.Book one was good. And guess what. So is this one (kind of?). Although defini...

    4 Life Lessons Stars Spoilers This isn't really a review Per se but more of a run down of what happen in this book.Frostbite picked up right after book one. Rose and Dimitri were fighting their feelings for each other and tried to move on with other people. Which I didn't like at all. Rose kinda started dating Mason where they shared a few kisses. I really loved Mason. I didn't want him to get used as a stand in and that was pretty much what happ...

    This series is BOMB AF.I swear, why didn't I start this series sooner? My heart is all over the place! MASON! R.I.P. Mason.That was my bro. I really wanted him to be with Mia at the end, but...not anymore I guess.All in all, this book was HELLA AWESEOME.Rose is still my favorite badass bitch.Lissa and Christian are hot.Adrian Ivashkov is DAMN SEXY & I kind of want him and Rose to go out.Quick note: I love Dimitri, don't get me wrong.

    The blurb says: Mason would die to be with Rose... Well that's just silly. If you die to be with someone, you wouldn't be able to be with them, cause you'd be dead! Plus, like everything else in this book, that's such a melodramatic statement. I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what the big deal over this series is. It’s recommended all over the place, the star average for this is really good, and it’s really popular – maybe I got my...

    My review of Vampire Academy. If you’ve been following my reviews for a while you probably would have noticed that I rarely reread books. I’m not the fastest reader so I’d usually rather read new books than reread ones that I’ve already experienced. However, with the Vampire Academy novels I had no trouble rereading the first two books because they’re just so addicting that you can’t help but fly through them even if you don’t have ...

    Oh... my... God! Holy...I am freaking out! This is the second installment in the Vampire Academy series. Are you kidding me?! This book looks like the last book in the series! Gosh, what will happen in the other four books? I loved this book, it was so entertaining and amazing. Might have spoilers:Rose has become sightly an adult and now she realizes her mistakes and her relationships with many people increased. I always liked Rose because she is...

If it is there, you've got to do whatever it takes to protect the ones you love.” Actual rating 3,5 stars!THAT ENDINGGGGGG!! I loved it so much, and I cried, like a lot.. So the last 70 pages were really good, but I didn’t really like the beginning of this book. The plot was so slow and I didn’t like the whole ski trip thing.I...

    This is a satisfying sequel, because the thing is, Richelle Mead could have gone very obvious with Rose. It would have been easy street, and would have probably still worked, as Rose threw in a quip here and there, kicked some ass, got in trouble, got saved, learned her lesson and then got the boy.Bada Bing. Bada Boom.And while Rose may do all those things, she does them in her own way and her own time and becomes a fully fleshed girl whose mista...

    A lot of people don't like this Vampire Academy book as much, but it's one of my favorites. There are breath-taking battle sequences at the end, and a devastating aftermath that leaves Rose forever changed. My respect for her grew leaps and bounds in this book, and the series really kicked into high gear both in story and in emotion.

    5/5I didn't think that this series could get any better than the first one but I was wrong. I really enjoyed reading this book and can't wait for the next one.There was action but that wasn't my main reason for liking Frostbite. Rose was changing so much during the book. One way was her relationship with her mom. Rose had been hating her mom but as I was reading, I was starting to see how similar they are to each other and I was so glad about the...

    Rating: 3/5Finally, the first review I write for 2015 and it's going to be more of a rant...Frostbite is the second book in the Vampire Academy series. I was really looking forward to reading it (and the rest of the series). But unfortunately the things that mildly bothered me in the first book were very annoying in this one. My main problem is Rose. She is such a vengeful, pitiful and immature person that is really hard for me to feel for her. S...

    “Everyone has light around them, except for you. You have shadows.” OMG, I am really starting to love this series. Is it cringe-worthy at times? Sure is. Is it teen-angst filled drama? Yep, guilty. Is it so much damn fun? HELL YEAH! So this is the book where we get introduced to the infamous Adrian that I have heard so much of from VA fans. He certainly didn't disappoint. He did leave me with one problem though! I don't know if I'm team Adria...

    (Finally made a review) Frostbite was such a fantastic read! In this book, I got to know more of Rose and her life in the Vampire Academy. There were lots of exciting events that happened, including their adventure trip to Idaho wherein the students and the guardians intended to escape Strigoi threats. And of course, it was nice to finally meet the infamous Adrian Ivashkov. Fancy meeting this hot dude because indeed, he’s one swoony guy! I tota...

    Oh. My. Goodness. Rose Hathaway is back, and she’s the reason we have the word BADASS. Frostbite, the second instalment in the Vampire Academy series, is rather obvious evidence that there is a real reason this series is so colossally popular.I honestly don’t know why it took me so damn long to read Vampire Academy... and then waited months before reading Frostbite. After (finally) reading it, I’m sold... but where do I start? The amazing B...

    I randomly decided to re-read Vampire Academy and Bloodlines because I'm going through a lot of bad reading slumps, and these books have always helped with that. I do plan on doing actual series reviews for them but for now, as I finish each book, I'm going to do spoiler-ish rambles on each one specifically:(view spoiler)[- The recaps are annoying. I skipped the first part before chapter 1 (I think that part is great - you can skip it or if it's ...
