Review: Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

Review: Bloodlines by Richelle Mead Bloodlines (Bloodlines #1) Richelle Mead Published: Aug. 23, 2011 (Penguin Teen) Purchase at: Book Depository, B&N or Amazon Rating (out of 5): 4 stars Bloodlines may be a separate series from Richelle Mead’s remarkable Vampire Academy, but it’s set in the same world with some of the same characters. It also takes place following the end of Last Sacrifice, the final VA book. If you read Bloodlines before...

Book Bits: Richelle Mead, Allison Pang, JR Ward, more and Contest Roundup

Book Bits: Richelle Mead, Allison Pang, JR Ward, more and Contest Roundup I’m working on a fun post about vampire cowboys. (You read that right. Trust me here.) If you’ve actually read a good book with vampire cowboys, shoot me an email. I want your suggestions. First four chapters of Bloodlines The team over at EW’s Shelf Life have exclusively posted the first four chapters of Bloodlines. If you’re unaware, Bloodlines is the first in Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy spinoff...

Book Bits: Richelle Mead, Jeri Smith-Ready, Kim Harrison and LOTS of excerpts

Book Bits: Richelle Mead, Jeri Smith-Ready, Kim Harrison and LOTS of excerpts There were so many great new releases this week, my head is still spinning. I pre-ordered Andrea Cremer’s Wolfsbane, so that’s my current read, but all the excerpts in today’s Book Bits already have me ready to order more. Dive in, and prepare to add to that TBR list. Taste of Succubus Revealed The Georgina Kincaid series almost over, and I’m not sure if I’m excited or nervous about that. Either way, I...

Review: Succubus Shadows by Richelle Mead (Georgina Kincaid #5)

Review: Succubus Shadows by Richelle Mead (Georgina Kincaid #5) I realize many of my favorite books — and recommended series — may not have their first few books reviewed on VBC. I’d like to get everyone caught up. In the coming weeks, I’m going to try and get reviews up-to-date on series from two of my favorite authors: Richelle Mead for her Georgina Kincaid series and Jeaniene Frost for Night Huntress. Succubus Shadows (Georgina Kincaid #5) Richelle Mead Published:...

Book Bits: Downside Ghosts and Bloodlines excerpts, Sookie’s finale, Hollows Insider and Contest Roundup

Book Bits: Downside Ghosts and Bloodlines excerpts, Sookie’s finale, Hollows Insider and Contest Roundup Sorry for the lack of post yesterday. I have a few reviews to get done for y’all, but I’m recovering from a concussion. (No, I don’t have a cool story. I fainted. It’s boring and, yet, still totally scary. I’m fine. But it limited my computer time and creativity.) I’m officially on the mend, and expect to have all sorts of reviews, features and giveaways right around the bend. Get your Downside fix I’ve...

Book Bits: Clockwork Prince, Rachel Vincent, new books from favorite authors, ‘American Talk’ and Contest Roundup

Book Bits: Clockwork Prince, Rachel Vincent, new books from favorite authors, ‘American Talk’ and Contest Roundup Today’s roundup is all about the future — new series, new books and teasers galore. And, yes, this will probably be the last time I include a Harry Potter-related video in Book Bits. This one should make you laugh, though. Clockwork Prince excerpt Cassandra Clare posted a nice excerpt from Clockwork Prince for us. Actually, it’s the entirety of the prologue. Expect ghost-y goodness. Read the full excerpt...

Book Bits: Dark Swan, Mortal Instruments, Jane True, True Blood, Contest Roundup and more I just might be caught up on email after the long weekend (and traveling the week prior). Miracles can happen. In today’s Book Bits we have teasers for Shadow Heir and City of Lost Souls, bookstore drama, a True Blood recap to make you laugh, cover art and info on a charity auction. Plus, some sweet contests in the roundup. (Related: We’ll be giving away copies of Melissa Marr’s Graveminder in the next...

Fireworks: Character sparks

Fireworks: Character sparks It’s Independence Day here in the U.S., and that means all sorts of good summer-y things. There will be barbecue action, sunshine and fireworks. I’m big on fireworks. Though, we’re not allowed to set off our own displays here in Texas (we’re in a drought, so there is a burn ban in effect), I’ll be taking the husband to watch the city’s big display later tonight. How can you not like pretty explosions in...

Review: Succubus Heat by Richelle Mead (Georgina Kincaid #4)

Review: Succubus Heat by Richelle Mead (Georgina Kincaid #4) I realize many of my favorite books — and recommended series — may not have their first few books reviewed on VBC. It goes with the territory of a blog that I review my latest reads, and only get to the others when doing a re-read (like we did for Vampire Academy or for a group read). But I’d like to get everyone caught up. So, in the coming weeks I’m going to try and get reviews up-to-date on series from...

Alpha Showdown Round 8: Kate Daniels vs. Rose Hathaway Today’s the final preliminary round of the Alpha Showdown. We couldn’t make it an easy one. We have two feisty, strong woman up this time. Will you go with Kate Daniels, who wields both magic and one hell of a sword, or Rose Hathaway, who has killed so many strigoi that we’ve lost count? You can get a refresher on just what this Alpha Showdown thing is here, but a key point to remember: Each poll is open...
