in english please ;)

Da die Statistik der Blogzugriffe sagt, viele Leser kommen gar nicht aus Deutschland dacht ich mir, ich mach mal ein kleines Experiment und blogge in Englisch. Die deutsche Version des Textes gibt es hier.

Because my statistic says some readers are not from Germany I decided to do a little experiment and do a blog in english. The german version of the text is here.
At first, as normally, I want to ask for a little Feedback. What do you think about the blogging in english? Should I do that on a regular basis?

And now the blog itself:
We decided do to a little Spotlight-thing. Where we talk every month about a topic that we like. This month it's a author I recommend to everyone: The fabulous Richelle Mead.

Richelle mead is an american author, here in germany mostly known for her Vampire Academy series (for short: VA).
But she wrote other good series, too:
1. At first: The Dark Swan series.
It's about Eugenie a young shaman, who has to fight against creatures from the Otherworld
2. Second in line is: The Georgina Kincaid Series.
It is , of course, about Georgina. She is a Sucubus fighting with the side effects of being a Demon.

Though this books deserve a Spotlight and definetly get not enough attention this month it's all about VA. Besides the fact, that I did a bookreview for the first one on my homepage (maybe it's coming to this blog in english, too :) )  I also wanted to introduce to you my favorite Character from the big VA universe:

Adrian Ivashkov.  (Of course XD)

For those of you, that didn't read VA a little warning: you may consider to stop reading. Because Adrian appears first in the second book and I don't wanna give away any spoilers.

Adrian is a Moroi, and the Queens' nephew. He is 21 years old and a spirit user. He tries to cover the side effects connected to this element with drinking and smoking. He has the reputation of beeing bad and a ladies' man. But after he meets Rose he has an eye on her and does not hide that.  So after a while she promises to give him a shot.
Adrian teaches Lissa everything he knows about the element Spirit and learns from her in return. Sometimes he shows how caring he can be, e.g. when he rescues the younger student Jill.

“I’m like a fine wine. I get better with age. The best is yet to come.”
- Adrian Ivashkov (Blood Promise)

 But how would I cast Adrian?
Thats an easy one XD Hayden Christensen:

 Why? Because he is perfect for the role and a really good actor (both things are of course a matter of opinion ^^)
Of course he is too old for that role, but with the new techniques in movie-making that shouldn't be a problem.
My second choice would be  Chace Crawford. But how do you see that? Who is your favorite Adrian Ivashkov? Tell me about it. :)

What you should know about VA:
1. The movierights are sold, but there is no official statement that plans about actually making a movie exist.
2. The sixth and final VA book "Last Sacrifice" is already published in the english-speaking part of the world, so the series is finished. But there is no reason to be sad: A Spin Off is scheduled to start in august this year. A Sequel where Sidecharacters become Protagonists.

What do you think about the Spin-Off "Bloodlines"? Is it just money-making or are you glad, because you just can't get enough of VA?

PS: To everyone who likes VA: You may consider voting for it at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Award all infos are here.
As said before this is just a test, and I'm not sure if I should start blogging in english.

I wish you all a wonderful week full with words and fantasy.
best wishes kj
