What’s better than reading an old favorite book series? Reading that series with an old friend. When I was in middle school and high school my friends and I loved the Vampire Academy series. Recently one of those friends and I decided to read the series together again.
The Vampire Academy series was written by Richelle Mead. There are six books in the series and the first is called Vampire Academy. The first book is about Rose and Lissa, two of the main characters, returning to school after running away. I always liked the first book because it introduces many different characters that grow with each book. I also enjoyed this book because it explains the different types of characters. The three types of characters are Moroi, Guardians, and Stigoi. Mead really does an excellent jobs setting up the structure of this fictional world.
In 2014 there was a movie released based off of the book. I was not a fan of the movie because it did not do the book justice, but of course the book is always better than the movie.
I am excited to read the series again and spend time talking about it with a friend. I hope that I will find more reasons to love the series. If you like vampires books that are different from most I would recommend the Vampire Academy series!
