This week, my quote comes from... 

St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school—it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s—the very place where they’re most in danger...
Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever.
So yeah, this series might have been out for a while now, but I just fell in love with it recently. The summary doesn't even do this book half the justice it deserves!  I picked two quotes for today, both between Rose and Dimitri. So, the first one, which made me snort out loud:
“Wow." I hadn't thought Dimitri could be any cooler, but I was wrong. "You beat up your dad. I mean, that's really horrible...what happened. But, wow. You really are a god." 
He blinked. "What?"

"Uh, nothing.”
And the second one... well, its so sweet. Really. It just made Dimitri all the more swoon worthy. (Though I did think he was a bit of a pedophile, falling for someone 7 years younger than him. Though I think I can look past that one. ;) )
"Because we can't be together." 
"Because of the age thing, right?" I asked. "Because you're my mentor?" 
His fingertip gently wiped away a tear that had escaped down my cheek. "That's part of it," he said. "But also, well, you and I will both be Lissa's guardians someday. I need to protect her at all costs. If a pack of Strigoi come, I need to throw my body between them and her." 
"I know that. Of course that's what you have to do." 
"No. If I let myself love you, I won't throw myself in front of her. I'll throw myself in front of you."
Ooh. Swoon. Its too bad really, that Dimitri's: a.) waaaay older than me, and b.) fictional


So enough of that. What was your quote this week? :)

  1. Oh Dimitri. *drool*

    But wait, he isn't that much older than you. :< You could work out! Don't give up so soon!! (There isn't any placeholder romance shit going on in my head atm, nope.)

  2. Gah I love that man... :P I read Vampire Academy a few months ago, and when I got to the scene where you got the second quote from, I let out a really stupid sounding "oooooooo aaawwwwwwww!!!!" and did a little dance in my seat. I guess it came out louder than I expected because EVERYONE on the bus gave me that "Bitch is nuts" look haha.

    1. Me too! ;) And lol, I seriously wished I could have seen that- but then again, I don't blame you! Dimitri can have that effect on people... ;)


Don't just sit there with your mouth hanging open. Flies will get in. Why don't you leave a comment instead and allow me to get a peek of those thoughts running in that brain of yours?
