I Am Carina And I Speak For The Books!

I am Carina, and I speak for the books! I read books because I love to and I write reviews because I need to place my thoughts in "paper". My reviews are honest. Usually not mean, but I can't make promises. Even when I don't like a book, I try to be as nice as possible. And when I love a book, I'm not going to lie, there might be some Fan Girling and Gushing.

Bloodlines (Bloodlines, #1)

Bloodlines (Bloodlines, #1) - Richelle Mead This is the spinoff to the Vampire Academy series. Characters emotions and other things will make more sense if you read that series before this one. Plus, it is awesome.Although this is a spinoff, it is also a new series. And as new series go, this book did have some of the 1st book in a series syndrome. Nope, it was not perfect. The twists were pretty obvious, at least to me, and I had it all pretty much figured out before it happened.I am surprised that I did like Sydney as a protagonist. She is not Rose, but I can see her growing more on me.Adrian, was Adrian. Sarcastic, sexy, alcoholic, party beast, heart broken Adrian. But his new relationships and responsabilities are bringing him closer to a new him. A better him. And I soooo enjoyed reading about him again.Thumbs super up for Eddie! We didn't get much into him, until the end, where he explains his feelings towards a new character and how much he reminds him of a lost friend. This sealed him in my "I love you" book.Jill...meh. Maybe she'll grow on me too. Next.New characters were good. Some good, some not-so-good, some evil.And then, the ending.Holy guacamole!The talk, and the looking in the eyes and the arrival.......................................................................................................................................well played Mrs. Mead. Well played.[b:The Golden Lily|8709523|The Golden Lily (Bloodlines, #2)|Richelle Mead|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1360599818s/8709523.jpg|13582370] here I come!Carina ApprovedCarina EndorsedNot Perfect, But Carina Loves
