Aloha :) The prompt for today (we'll I should have posted this yesterday, but you know how I am with keeping up...) is:
Your favourite series
I love a lot of series, but when it comes to picking one I'll always go with the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. I just love these books! There is not one book I disliked and I enjoyed each equally.
I posted about that series a lot, I even think my first English post was about Richelle Mead.
Her vampires were different from the once hyped through Twilight and I think that is one of the main reasons I stayed with this series the whole time. And maybe the wonderfully tragic love story was the other reason.
I cannot begin to describe the excitment I felt when I finally held the last book in my hands. I was so happy and so sad that the series ended at the same time. And now I am as excitedly waiting for the movie!
Here is what I had so say about the ending of VA, back in the day:
"Though I didn't wanted it to end like it did, Richelle Mead has a wonderful stile of writing and I was totally satisfied with the way she put the end into words. Honestly she could have killed EVERYONE at the end of this novel in a Shakespear-like tragedy and I still would be satisfied because she would have written it in such a wonderful way. I'm just happy she doesn't try to sell washing machines, because I would probably buy a dozen without needing one. " Wednesday, July 27, 2011
Yeah, you're reading it right. I would even buy a washing mashine from this faboulous author... Now go and read the book!
This story was actually the thing that got me into Paranormal Romance and reading YA. So therefore you can say this whole blog is kind of Richelle Mead's fault.
So thank you for such an amazing series, Mrs. Mead.
