Date With A Vampire (Ep 5) Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

Welcome to Date With A Vampire, a Thursday feature every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month with vampire themed book and movie recommendations.

Last month we had a laugh with blondes who bite: Lestat de Lioncourt and Eric Northman. This month we’re going emo with outcasts.

For this first Thursday date, meet Christian Ozera from Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead.

The moment I saw Christian skulking around in the shadows my mind chanted a sultry, “hello, there, bad boy.” I love Christian Ozera the way I love Toby Cavanaugh in Pretty Little Liars. Loners and outcasts have always held a special place in my heart.

Thankfully, the Vampire Academy movie exceeded my expectations. (The overall ratings weren’t making my blood pump with excitement.) But I ended up enjoying the film and wish they’d continue with the rest of the series, which I ended up buying in paperback.

The box set is now in a box, one of many as we make our move (today!) to a town a little north of where we’ve been holed up the past three years. It will be another couple months before the floors get done. The house still has the original orange shag carpet from the 70’s. Can’t wait to have it all finished and books back out of boxes and onto bookshelves where they belong!

As always, give me a shout if you have a suggestion, especially the cinematic kind during these next couple months of grueling labor.
