Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

St. Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school—it's a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St. Vladimir's—the very place where they're most in danger. . . .

Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy's ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world's fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever.

I have been wanting to read the Vampire Academy series for a REALLY long time! I think that I'm going to finally buy the book the next time I go out because it sounds great and a lot people seem to love it. And it's about vampires so it's a must read!


Ballads of Suburbia by Stephanie Kuehnert

Kara hasn't been back to Oak Park since the end of junior year, when a heroin overdose nearly killed her and sirens heralded her exit. Four years later, she returns to face the music. Her life changed forever back in high school: her family disintegrated, she ran around with a whole new crowd of friends, she partied a little too hard, and she fell in love with gorgeous bad-boy Adrian, who left her to die that day in Scoville Park....

Amid the music, the booze, the drugs, and the drama, her friends filled a notebook with heartbreakingly honest confessions of the moments that defined and shattered their young lives. Now, finally, Kara is ready to write her own.

I think just about everyone that read this book, LOVED it. I just entered a contest to win it at The Book Pixie!

  1. I really want to read this book. I've heard a lot of good things about this series. (:

  2. Marisa you should definitly read them. I loved that series - very very good! I put them off too and after I finished the first book I was glad I did because I didn't have to wait to find out what happens. Now, I feel like I'm going crazy waiting for the next book to come out.

    Briana I haven't read this book yet, but it's also on my wishlist. I don't think I've seen a review that said they didn't like it. I also entered some contests for it, so we'll see what happens. Good luck with your contests.

  3. Both are excellent books! I love the Vampire Academy series- so addicting. I'm currently reading Ballads of Suburbia and loving it! :D
