Book Review: Spirit Bound - Richelle Mead

After returning from her adventures trying to kill Dimitri, Rose finds herself back at St. Vladimir’s. Even though she had dropped out of her field experience to become a fully-fledged guardian, she’s allowed back in, and she graduates from school, and becomes a guardian. Whether she’ll be allowed to guard Lissa, is another story though.

At the beginning of the story, Rose is romantically involved with Adrian. She’s told everybody that she is totally over Dimitri, but she isn’t. And when she heard that there might be a way to save him, and make him dhampir again, she couldn’t resist. Even if it involves breaking Lissa’s biggest enemy out of the biggest prison in the dhampir world. But she has to try. She can’t give up on Dimitri, can she? It’s risky, and the only person who claims to have done it had gone insane. What if, in trying to save Dimitri, she gets her friends killed? Could she give up on everything she has worked for her whole life? Is she that self centred and selfish?

The fifth instalment in the Vampire Academy series is back up to the high standard that was lost in Blood Promise. Rose returns to the person that she was, the one we all know and love, and her loyalty to those she loves and her no nonsense attitude keeps the book flowing, and makes you need to keep reading. Full of everything you ever wanted from a Vampire Academy novel, Spirit Bound keeps you reading, and hungry for the next book in the series. Overall, much better than Blood Promise, and if, after reading that, are a little unsure about reading the next one, go ahead and read it, it’s much better!

I give it 4 Feet!

#readFreshers: BACK TO CAMPUS

Hey guys! Welcome to my stop on the Freshers blog tour. This book is hilarious and so much fun and I'm so excited to have Tom and Lucy on the blog today!

Here's Tom and Lucy's offering for today!
As soon as we started writing FRESHERS, we knew we wanted to go back to York university.  We spent three years there between 2001-2004 (Lucy) and 2002-2005 (Tom), and we knew that if we wanted to write a realistic campus novel, we had to go back to the campus we'd once called home. So, back in February 2016, we did. Here's a photo of Lucy reminiscing outside the big central hall building (which features quite a bit in FRESHERS). 

While we were on campus, we managed to sneak into our old corridors and have a look around, and it was comforting (and horrifying) to find out that students today are still as gross as we were back in 2001/2002. The corridors were sticky and smelly, and the kitchens were basically pasta-sauce-spattered bomb sites. We also spoke to as many genuine …

Synopsis from Goodreads:It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five painful days since the death of Juniper's big sister, Camilla. On her first day back at school, bracing herself for the stares and whispers, Juniper borrows Camie's handbag for luck - and discovers an unsent break-up letter inside. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of Camie's accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card …
