Vampire Academy is out and I have thoughts!

Hello and happy Saturday 👋👋

I don’t post on Saturday’s but today is a special case because I’ve just finished watching the first 4 episodes of the new Vampire Academy series and I have thoughts and feelings.

It’s been adapted by the same person as Vampire Diaries which was obviously a really popular show but I have not been optimistic about this show from the moment it was announced.

Besides from the announcemnt I haven’t actually been keeping track of its production or anything like that. I hadn’t even watched the trailer so I went into this completely blind.

I read the entire Vampire Academy series in a week. (why am i like this?)

Howdy doodle 🤠😊 Welcome to my blog.

If you’re a regular reader of this blog then you may recall that a week and a half ago I made a whole post discussing the news of Vampire Academy being adapted for a TV show, while also complaining that the movie deserved better.

Well. Inspired by my own rambles, I picked up the first book to re-read just for fun but then one things led to another and ten days later I officially finished the entire six book series.

5 years these books have sat on my shelf and I read the lot in 10 days 😂😂 I don’t know what came over me. Actually I do. It was ✨anxiety✨ that prompted me to hide from life by reading these books at an onbsessive rate but that’s besides the point.

I really, really enjoyed my time re-reading the first four books and then finally finishing the final two novels and I’m here to talk to you about the series today.


*the covers are ugly. please enjoy this instead*

I’m still mourning the Vampire Academy movie.

The word around the internet the other day is that Vampire Academy is getting a new TV show, which “yay”, I’m always excited about book adaptations but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t slightly bitter about the movie.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not bitter because it was a bad movie that was totally unrecognisable to the original novel. I’m bitter because there was no sequel!!!



In my opinion Vampire Academy (2014) was by far one of the top tier book to film adaptations. After watching for the first time I was hooked. I went on to watch it again and again, and even got the entire book series, (which I still haven’t read the last 2 books of).

They had the perfect cast in Zoey Deutch as Rose and Lucy Fry as Lissa. After the release of this movie I would search for any information about the sequel for a good year or so. I think I even set a google alert. The sequel, Frostbite, was my favourite book of what I’ve so far read and I was excited to see an adaptation of that but alas …

Series I need to finish but probably wont for a while // Top 5 Tuesday

aaaa

Hello, happy Tuesday and happy September!

The first Top 5 Tuesday topic of September is: Top 5 Series I Need to Finish!!!

I actually had a post similar to this planned out but there’s a fair few To Be Finished series so it’s probably for the best that I’m splitting this up into 2 parts. For today I’m focusing on the series I’m quite far into that I need and do want to to complete soon.

Spring Cleaning Book Tag

 

large (1)

Spring cleaning, something I seriously need to do! I am a naturally messy person, it stems from me being incredibly lazy and I just throw things all over my room and it builds and it builds. It’s a vicious cycle.

I saw this tag done by Lori’s Bookshelf Reads  and I thought it was perfect for hopefully getting me motivated to sort out my life and clean out my mess of a wardrobe

black-and-white-flowers-tumblr-transparent-121. The struggle of getting started:
A book or series you struggle to begin because of its size. 

9781408872895One I previously struggled to start due to size was Throne of Glass because there are so many books in that series and each is bigger then the last. I’m happy to report I’m four books in. Currently I haven’t built up the nerve to read Poison Study because there are multiple trilogies to this series and that scares me.

Books for my younger self // Top 5 Wednesday

 

0b52cfa20534e151d7c781034eb22588 (1).jpg

Well done me for so far consistently posting a Top 5 Wendesday even though this is literally only the second week. I’m just gonna take the wins when I can though.

I’m not sure if this is meant to be books to help my younger self or just books I think my younger self would just generally enjoy but I’m going to roll with it.

The weekly topics are posted HERE on Goodreads.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

This is more for past me from a year then me when I was a little kid because I have owned this book for so long but I got so intimidated by the hype that I ignored it until recently when people on Tumblr just kept yelling at me to read it.

Tash Hearts Tolstoy by by K. E. Ormsbee

I really enjoyed this book and I wish there had been more books with Asexual characters a year ago when I was trying to figure things out. I am however really enjoying reading through Asexual/Aromantic character books at the minute.

The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot

images234Q50FU.jpgI’ve never read this series but I loved the movies. I think if I were to read them now they’d be far too juvenile and I wouldn’t enjoy them. Too bad child me wasnt that interested in reading back then unless it was Twilight.

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomasf043712f-4655-4c8a-b60f-fca1e4c6ca9f

I’m including this because I still haven’t read it and younger me and current me shouldn’t be scared of the hype and the love around this book. Hopefully I’ll get to it before the movie comes out.

Vampire Academy by Rachelle Mead

51XN5PsardL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

Partly to introduce myself to a better vampire alternative to Twilight. Partly because maybe if I’d started this soon I wouldn’t have gotten fed up of vampires and maybe I might have actually finished the series. As is stands right now I haven’t gotten past the fourth book.

 


Thanks for reading 💜
