Vampire Academy - Richelle Mead

I feel a little bit bad saying this, but I didn't enjoy Vampire Academy.  I read SO MANY glowing reviews of this series on GoodReads, and so many people have recommended the book to me, but it just didn't do it for me.  Perhaps the series gets better as it goes along?  If anyone has any thoughts to share on this, I wouldn't mind hearing someone convince me to keep reading.

I just found that nothing much happened.  The writing was okay and the pacing of the story was a little slow for my taste.  Rose's character annoyed me, especially when she'd get super angry with lightning speed.  There seemed to be no middle ground with her; she'd be fine one second or livid and ready to fight the next.  Lissa's character also annoyed me and I found her to be completely spineless.  She seems completely dependent on Rose who, in turn, is either completely devoted to Lissa or completely focused on either getting drunk or making out with a boy.

All in all, not planning to read any further into the series -- unless someone has thoughts on whether the series gets better?  I know that some series take a book or two to really get going, but I just can't see this one getting much better.

  1. I understand that you may not have loved this book, I felt that it was ok and the second book is good but for me the series really picks up from the third book on. The last three books are great. I hope you will continue, it ended up being one of my favorite series. Btw..I love the Casters Chronicles too, but Beautiful Darkness, Lena is a pain...
