Vampire Academy

First off, if you haven't read these books, then I HIGHLY encourage you to!! They are SO good!


I have been waiting YEARS for the Vampire Academy movie to be released and that finally happened last week! Ahh!! My friend Megan and I went and saw it and I wasn't disappointed!


I did think that the movie moved a little fast compared to the books and at a couple parts, it took me awhile to figure out what was going on or to remember the way it had happened in the books, but that could be because it's literally been probably five years or so since I first read the books.

The actress who played Lissa Dragomir, Lucy Fry, reminded me a little of Taylor Swift for some reason (maybe the blonde curly hair), and that bugged me the entire movie, lol.


The actress who played Rose Hathaway (my favorite character), Zoey Deutch, was right on though. She is exactly how I pictured her when reading the books.


At first, I wasn't impressed by the actor that played Dimitri Belikov, Danila Kozlovsky, because he is supposed to be super hot! When reading the books, I just imagined him as drop dead gorgeous. But as the movie went on, I started to find him more attractive, I'm not sure if it was as they showed his character more, or as he and Rose's relationship grew. Either way, I'm satisfied with their choice in actor now, lol.


Now to wait on the second movie... Ugh!!

Have you seen Vampire Academy or read the books? What did you think?

  2. I know there is a lot of hype about vampires these days, but I don't read books or watch movies geared towards teens. I am just to old for that these days :)

  4. The actress who played Lissa Dragomir really does look a little like Taylor Swift... and a little like the main actress in the show Revenge!

  7. I've never heard of this series before, BUT I love when I find a book series that I can really get into, and it seems that it will not end because you always have something to look forward to (as in another edition added to the collection).

  9. I did not read the books, but I did see the first movie. I didn't like it as much as the Twilight series and nothing will ever beat Interview With The Vampire as far as my personal vampire favorites go! Lucy Fry DOES look similar to Taylor Swift!!

  19. It's nice when you read the book and then watch the movie. It does make for some major comparison, but I think you end up having a better understanding of both.
