2014 Real Book Challenge: February

Another Saturday, but I'm trying really hard to share my REAL Books reads for the previous month on the 1st, regardless of what day of the week it falls on.

This month should be labeled with an F for reading. I got through ONE real book. I can't believe it! I really didn't finish too many eBooks either, because my time was spent elsewhere.

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

February Total: 1

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead was added to my list due to the 16 books to read before they become movies list I talked about last month and it was pretty good. I'm excited to see how they adapted the movie, but I think I'll have to wait for $1 theaters or DVD since it doesn't appear to be playing around here. As for some who said VA was better than Twilight, you obviously don't know about my obsession with that series, and even though the books writing was subpar, I loved everything about Twilight! Vampire Academy was 4 Stars for me.

Synopses: 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.

You can keep up with my Real Books Challenge by following me on and I usually try to post my real books on Instagram when I can.

I borrowed a library book for this one and boy did it look well read! I started a real book that should fall into March's challenge. It's the second in the Hard Ink series I mentioned was released this week!


  1. I've heard such good things about Vampire Academy but wasn't sure if I would like them myself. Maybe I will check them out now...

  2. I have a pile of books i got from goodreads that i need to read plus the 5 i bought recently.

  3. Only one book should be a crime. Just kidding. I am on a reading binge lately. I want to start the Hard Ink series too.
