Mmmmmmm, Dimitri...

Vampire Academy - Richelle Mead

I'm currently reading a 700 page non-fiction book about America around the civil war.  It's very hard for me to read about certain subjects, like the civil war, just because the whole thing is so shameful.  So I'll read a couple of chapters, and then read something in between.  And right now, that's Vampire Academy.  These vampires kick ass.  They aren't silly, they don't sparkle, they are just hard core, and some of them are downright creepy.  This is everything that Twilight wanted to be. 


Can we have a moment to appreciate Dimitri?



Mmmmm, yes please.


This is YA, so it's easy to read, and quick to get through.  There is a fair bit of teenaged angst, which gets a little annoying at times, but not enough to keep me from enjoying the book.


A nice opening book to the series.
