Musing Mondays, a weekly meme hosted by Should be Reading, asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!
I’m currently reading Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. I have to confess that I’m only reading this because the movie’s coming out. What can I say? I’m a sucker for a good teeny bopper vampire flick! It’s been a while since I’ve read another Twilightesque book, mainly because the whole vampire/boarding school sub-genre is getting tiresome.
Just 100 pages into the story, I’m already sensing that a love triangle and an epic vampire clan showdown are in the midst. Yes, this series appears to be following the formula, yet the author is shaking it up a bit with some creative twists on the vampire lore. I’m interested to see how things pan out for the main character, Rose, who is getting a lot of one-on-one time with her personal defense-against-the-Strigoi trainer, Dimitri. They’re currently in the love-hate stage, which I’m sure will turn into a forbidden love affair. You see, Rose is at the bottom of the vampire totem pole and is forbidden to canoodle with members of the royal class.
Oh how I love a scandal! Stay tuned for the book/movie review.

I haven’t heard about the Vampire Academy before, but I hope you enjoy reading it. Here’s my musing
Thanks, Rose! I’ll take a gander at you musing…
I’m not into “Vampire” reading but must say it does sound interesting if there is to be “canoodling” going on. Haven’t heard that fun word used in ages. Enjoy your reading this week.
Oh yes, loads of canoodling and giggling girls with fangs! It’s a pretty fun read. 🙂
I’ve read some of this series and I actually like it.
