Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

Title: Vampire Academy
Author: Richelle Mead
Series? Yes
Aquired From: School Library 
Summary:Lissa is a Moroi vampire. Rose (Short for RoseMarie) is Lissa's best friend and future guardian. Rose is also our narrator. We find out that Lissa was in danger of the Strogoi at the Vampire Academy, so Rose and she run away. When they return, they are put under a lock down. At the school, the girls meet Mia, the popular girl who 'stole' Lissa's boyfriend. Mia makes it her mission to make Rose and Lissa's lives miserable. Rose meets Dmitri, a sexy Russian guardian. When dead animals begin appearing in Lissa's room and bag, Rose knows that something's up and sets out to figure it out, all the while putting Lissa first.
Review: Not gonna lie, this is probably the best vampire book I have ever read. The romance was sultry and I could relate to Rose and Lissa's relationship. The ridiculously close best friends, who would literally do anything for each other. I loved all the characters, and the plot. I just got the sequel from the school library today, but now I'm kinda afraid that it's not the right one, and I'm SO not okay with that. I need more Dmitri, Christian, Rose and Lissa NOW!
Cover Rating: 4/5
Comments on the Cover: Mysterious and seductive, just like the book.
Character Comments: I LOVE THE CHARACTERS IN THIS BOOK. I love the way how you'll love them, and then you'll hate them, and then you'll love them again, and maybe go back to hating them again. I love the characters the you can't decide if you like or not.
