Hey Book Lovers! Did any of you forget what day it is? It’s time for another Teaser Tuesday! For any of you that haven’t caught on to what these are, they are little weekly segments that showcase a “teaser” from my current read. I usually like to choose an excerpt from my current page or one really close to my current one! If you would like to do these posts, please be sure to send me the link once it goes up! So now, without further ado, let’s get straight into this week’s teaser!
‘My words were interrupted when two guys farther down the pew suddenly exploded into snickers. Glancing up, I saw them looking right at me, not even bothering to hide their smirks.
Looking away, I triedto ignore them, suddenly hoping the priest would start up soon. But Lissa returned their looks, and a sudden fierceness flashed across her face. She didn’t say a word, but their smiles grew smaller under her heavy gaze.’

SO YUP, I am finally reading Vampire Academy! Although I read it back in 2016, I didn’t actually like it. I was in the worst part of a book slump then and didn’t enjoy it at all. But, I bought myself a cheap, “different cover” edition of Frostbite and thought I would give VA another go. And I have to say, I AM LOVING IT SO FREAKING MUCH!!!
If you haven’t heard of Vampire Academy, here’s the synopsis:
Lissa Dragomir is a Moroi princess: a mortal vampire with a rare gift for harnessing the earth’s magic. She must be protected at all times from Strigoi; the fiercest vampires—the ones who never die. The powerful blend of human and vampire blood that flows through Rose Hathaway, Lissa’s best friend, makes her a dhampir. Rose is dedicated to a dangerous life of protecting Lissa from the Strigoi, who are hell-bent on making Lissa one of them.
After two years of freedom, Rose and Lissa are caught and dragged back to St. Vladimir’s Academy, a school for vampire royalty and their guardians-to-be, hidden in the deep forests of Montana. But inside the iron gates, life is even more fraught with danger…and the Strigoi are always close by.
Rose and Lissa must navigate their dangerous world, confront the temptations of forbidden love, and never once let their guard down, lest the evil undead make Lissa one of them forever…
THAT’S IT FOR TODAY! I hope you enjoyed reading this week’s Teaser Tuesday! Don’t forget to like, comment and follow for more of my posts!
