Picked up the Vampire Academy as a holding book for another series I was waiting for. Turns out it was pretty cool. You can read about the series here: http://www.richellemead.com/books/vampireacademy.htm
I really like Mead’s writing style and characters, both in this series and two previously mentioned, the Dark Swan series and the Georgia Kincaid series, both of which are adult series. The Vampire Academy series are young adult but us not so young adults can enjoy it too!
