Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead | Book Review

(Vampire Academy #1)

Published: August 16, 2007


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.

My Rating: 4 stars4/5 (Very Good)

Welcome to Book Snacks!

Hey to all readers out there! Welcome to my blog, where I’ll be writing review of books I’ve read and recommend! If I hated or disliked a book, I will most probably not even write about it, unless it’s well known and popular. No offense intended to anyone who loves a book/series that I’ve disliked, just stating my opinion!

I read a variety of genres of books, so no matter what genre books you like, you will probably have at least a couple of books in that genre (except maybe horror and historical fiction; I don’t read much of those.)

Also, feel free to drop in some book recommendations in the ‘Recommendations‘ page! If there is a specific book or series you would like to see a review on, also feel free to contact me at or comment on my ‘About‘ page. If you’re an author/publisher with a review request, head over to my Review Policy to assure I qualify for your needs. Stay tuned, and happy readings!
