Last Sacrifice (Vampire Academy, #6) by Richelle Mead- Review

Well guys, I've finished the series. I have to say that after reading all six of these wonderful books, Richelle Mead is the queen of vampire fiction. These books are beautifully and skillfully written and while I'm happy that I finished the series, I'm also disappointed I won't get to read more from Rose's point of view. After a very small amount of deliberation, I'll be starting the Bloodlines series next. I was going to take a Richelle Mead reading break, but after finished Last Sacrifice last night, I've decided I need something else to hold me over!

Spirit Bound (Vampire Academy, #5) by Richelle Mead - Review

And I've finished another one of the Vampire Academy books and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Now, I'm not sure if I'm excited to start the last book and have the series come to a close as I'm so excited/anxious to figure out what Ms. Mead has in store, or if I'm completely heart broken to be done with this series. I think the end of the next book will answer that question for me but until I get there, please enjoy this review of book five, Spirit Bound. Once again, I will try and keep the review as spoiler free as possible, but as you know, I'm pretty dang excited about the series so a little something here or there may slip!

Blood Promise (Vampire Academy, #4) by Richelle Mead - Review

Part of me really didn't want to write this review tonight... mostly because I want to be reading the next book Spirit Bound. I don't know what it is about the VA series, but I devour these books in only a matter of days (sometimes hours!) and Blood Promise was no different. Once again, I will warn you that there may be some semi spoilers in this review. I've really enjoyed the dialog I've had with other readers on these books and so I don't want to be too cryptic about my opinions.

Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy, #3) by Richelle Mead - Review

I have one word for you: Amazing. Shadow Kiss was such a thrill ride that I read all 440 pages in one night... I just couldn't stop. Now after that one amazing word, I think I may have a few other words for Richelle Mead because of how she made me feel at the end of this heart breaker. I'm only joking, Shadow Kiss has further put me in awe of Mead's talented storytelling and superb writing. I know I normally do spoiler free reviews and I can assure you I will not be giving away any huge plot twists, but be cautious in reading this review as I feel like I need to get some things off my chest that may spoil some mystery to the series.

Frostbite (Vampire Academy, #2) by Richelle Mead - Review

I hate doing this to you guys, reading all the books in a series right in a row, but with these books I can't help it. I'm completely drawn into the series and come hell or high water, I don't think I can stop continuing on so please forgive me if you get a little tired of my Vampire Academy reviews, but I'm hoping that you guys love the books as much as I do!

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1) by Richelle Mead - Review

I'm so excited that I finished the first book in the Vampire Academy series. I've been waiting to start it for a while and now that I have, I'm so excited to continue on with this series. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend Richelle Mead's launch party for her newest book. I had never read any of her books, but I was excited to see her speak nonetheless. She completely charmed me and I bought almost all of her books... yep... a lot of them.

Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush #1) by Becca Fitzpatrick - Review

Hush, Hush has been sitting on my bookshelf staring at me for some time now. It also gives me the eye anytime I see it in the books store and so this lazy Saturday morning, I decided to give it a try. I read the whole book this morning and I have to say I was in a very good mood all day, thinking of fallen angels and boys named Patch...

Abandon (Abandon Trilogy #1) by Meg Cabot - Review

I will start off by saying that I've never read any of Meg Cabot's books. This was my introduction into her writing and I think I probably should have chosen another book to begin with. I've heard some great things about her writing and I picked Abandon out because I love mythology retelling and I thought another Persephone myth would be right up my alley. I wasn't a huge fan of this book, but I have no doubt that others will have a different opinion than me.

Fifty Shades Freed (Fifty Shades #3) by E.L. James - Review

And here we are. I've finally finished this infamous trilogy and I have to say, I'm very pleased with how things were ended. In previous reviews for both Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker, I was addicted to the sereis amid some confusion on my part. Why do I even like these Twilight-y and raunchy books? I don't really have an answer to that question but I do know that I really enjoyed Fifty Shades Freed and I find myself content and all mushy inside after finishing it.
