WHEN LOVE AND JEALOUSY COLLIDE ON THE SLOPES, WINTER BREAK TURNS DEADLY…
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.
Rose has serious guy trouble. Her gorgeous tutor, Dimitri, has his eye on someone else, her friend Mason has a huge crush on her, and she keeps getting stuck in her best friend Lissa’s head while she’s making out with her boyfriend, Christian.
Then a nearby Strigoi attack puts St. Vladimir’s on high alert, and the Academy whisks its students away on a mandatory Holiday ski trip. But the glittering winter landscape and posh Idaho resort only provide the illusion of safety. When three students run away to strike back again the deadly Strigoi, Rose must join forces with Christian to rescue them. Only this time, Rose – and her heart – are in more danger than she ever could have imagined…

As the year 2019 came to an end, we did not only closed a year but we are closing a decade. And because of that, I’ve been seeing this trend of people looking back in their decade. So here I am looking back at my decade of reading.
I have been wondering how I will do this but I finally come into terms with just mentioning books that have become the highlight of my year or a book that changed my perspective during that said year.
I have to warn you that this will be a very very veeeerrrryyyy long post because this decade is not just a decade of picking up favorites or seeing how my reading taste changes, this decade is my journey of becoming a bookworm.
So without further ado, here is a decade of my reading…

“They say Dimitri is a god. Well I’m an Atheist.”
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 . . .
This is one of those moments where I’m very thankful for having a blog to vent out my thoughts and fangirl without looking like a weirdo. I’m a huge fan of the Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead. I read it last year and I can still recall the events that transpire in those books and it only feels like I read it yesterday.
I have to admit that I haven’t read the Bloodlines Series because I only want RoMitri. I know, it is a very lame reason. I’m still convincing myself to read that series with no luck of succeeding this year. Maybe next year. And my voice has been heard!!
