I just finished this wonderful novel (after working on reading it since BEFORE Europe.) In true Richelle Mead fashion, it was a wonderful mix of romance, heartbreak, humour, sadness, and too many other emotions to name. I absolutely love this series, Vampire Academy, and its characters. The plot is brilliant and original. The characters are realistic. I reccomend this series to anyone who loves vampires, romances, and books about amazing friendships. 🙂
As I’ve done with every book I’ve read since freshman year, I marked specific parts of the novel that I like to type up and keep for future inspiration and amusement. So here we go :

If ever there was a distraction, it was someone wanting to kill me.

“It figures. You’re the only girl who;d get all emotional about the thought of killing. I don’t even want to think about what goes on when you and [your boyfriend] are alone.”

“Is that a gun?”
“I’m not stopping to find out.”

“Be sorry you lied. Don’t be sorry you loved him. That part of you, part you have to let go, yeah, but still something that’s made you who you are.”

“I can think of many words to describe you, sexy and hot being at the top ofthe list. You know what’s not on the list? Sane.
“Okay, well, then my job is to be the less  crazy one.”
“That I can accept.”

“Your optimism… your belief that you can make anything happen. It’s one of the amazing thing about you. It’s also one of the most infuriating things about you.”

“Maybe my belief in the impossible isn’t so crazy after all.”

Massacres, miracles… it didn’t matter. Everything was cause for a party.

“Wecan argue your messed-up unholy schedule some other time.”

“No dhampir is off my list of evil creatures.”

“Okay. I believe you.
“Really?”
“Do you want me to not believe you?”
“No, it was just easier that I thought convincing you.”

“Don’t you think that if God can supposedly forgive you, it’s kind of egotistical for you not to forgive yourself?”

“I’m addicted to you. Somehow I think you could do all sorts of bad things to me, and I’d still come back to you.”

I I had learned anything about life and love, it was that they were tenuous things that could end at any moment.

Cautions was essential – but not at the cost of wasting your life.

“I cheat at cards and buy liwuor for minors. But I would never, ever force you into something you don’t want.”

 Please NOTE: If you like any of these enough to repost or use them, make sure you credit back to Richelle Mead, these are her words.

Still on the books note, I bought four more books today. 🙂

  • Beauty – Robin McKinley
  • Spindle’s End – Robin McKinley
  • Don’t Judge a Girl by Her Cover – Ally Carter
  • Blue Moon – Alyson Noël

I can’t wait to get started! I think I’ll read Beauty first 🙂

Kamikaze girls!

Guess just watch Kamikaze Girls (aka The Shimotsuma Story)! I DID! And it was amazing! Halarious and beautiful! J’adore!

Here are some of my favorite quotes:

Everyone’s got a problem. There’s always some pain inside. It’s Ok to cry, but women can’t do it in public. Otherwise, everyone will break down. So only cry alone. It makes you stronger.
-Akimi

Humans are born alone. We think alone and die alone.
-Momoko

Humans are a mystery…
-Momoko

Humans will always betray eachother.
-Momoko

To be honest, Momoko reminds me quite a bit of myself. Though I haven’t the brilliant wardrobe she has, or the under handed way of getting it, we share a love for embroidery. She also removes herself from society by referring to people as “humans,” I tend to do this as well. She is also mostly alone, which nearly parallels myself. I have a few friends though, not many good ones, but people talk to me and make sure I’m never too lonely, though the only two I truely care for are my sister, Becca, and my Prince, Tyler. Momoko and I also share the idea that women should not do physical labor and should not be expected to work. I understand that I will have to work, but then it will not be strenuous activity. Another thing is her general attitude. When Ichiko says she’ll hit her, she replys “OK”. When Ichiko says she’ll kill her, she says “Why not?” She’s always poking at Ichiko in a silly childish way, as I do quite often. Especially in using names that I like. (example: she called Ichiko, Ichigo, even thoguh she hates the name.)She also shares the deep desire to be rid of the small town she lives in. It’s quite obvious she would love to be in Tokyo, rather then her grandmother’s town. Just a side thought. She’s my ne role modle. 🙂
