Kiss and Tell (1)

Kiss and Tell is a new meme hosted at Fantasy 4 Eva.

So, everyone! How are you all doing? It's been such a long while since I actually did an interactive post. This meme that I've decided to participate in every week will help me keep in touch with you guys. All I have to do is gush about a book that have either captured my attention (at a library or at a book store) or wanted for a really long time (oh, I have tons of those).

So let's start shall we?

Vampire Academy (#1)
by Richelle Mead

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.

I have always wanted to start this series. Always! Every time I would stumble upon it, I would think about the cover and how the girl looks exactly like Angelina Jolie. Doesn't she?! I believe so. Anyway, I know of many bloggers that absolutely love this series. What I want to know is how good it is -- although I assume that it's an amazing series -- so that I can decide if I should buy it or borrow it from the library. (I'm not the type of person who buys a lot of books. I go to the library instead). Ooh, but I'm so excited to start this...whenever that will be.

(Am I being generous or is it that good?)


by Carrie Jones

Zara White suspects there's a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She's also obsessed with phobias. And it's true, she hasn't exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane...but Zara's pretty sure her mom just can't deal with her right now.

She couldn't be more wrong. Turns out the semi-stalker is not a figment of Zara's overactive imagination. In fact, he's still following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There's something not right - not human - in this sleepy Maine town, and all signs point to Zara.

In this creepy, compelling breakout novel, Carrie Jones delivers romance, suspense, and a creature you never thought you"d have to fear.

I have seen this book everywhere. Even in drugstores and...other stores that don't usually sell books. So I've thought about giving it a try. Still haven't. I did read different sorts of reviews about this one so my final decision is to borrow it from the library. Yay me!
