We’re looking to the release of Last Sacrifice, the final book in the Vampire Academy series, with excitement and apprehension. We want to complete this journey with Rose, but it will be hard to let go of our favorite YA series.
To get the most out of it, we’ve decided to re-read the series before the Dec. 7, 2010, release. We invite you to relive Rose’s journey of love, responsibility, friendship and heartbreak with us.
Vampire Book Club is sponsoring a Vampire Academy Re-Read Challenge. All five books will need to be read between Oct. 1 and Nov. 30. We’re giving a two-month block, because we’re aware some of you will be doing Fever and Highlander series re-reads simultaneously.

If you haven’t yet read the Vampire Academy series, this is a great time to do so. It’s a remarkable YA series with great appeal to adults. The fourth title, Blood Promise, is one of our favorite books — YA or otherwise.
Want to participate? First, you need to sign up via this form.
As you read or re-read each title, review it and link back to this post. If you’ve already reviewed a book, comment on this post with a link to your original review and a comment on something new you took away from the book this time around.
Not a blogger? Not a problem. You can post your reviews to Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. (any public site that allows reviews) and just post the link to that review in the comments below.
The challenge runs Oct. 1, 2010, to Nov. 30, 2010. Reviews and comments must be posted between those dates to be eligible for prizes. You may fill out the participation form at any time prior, though.
