The Compulsive Reader: Bloodlines Party!

Bloodlines Party!

I've received some pretty interesting things in the mail before, but I think that the package that came via UPS this morning beats them all...

That is a rose, a finished copy of Bloodlines, a tote bag, and A COOKIE CAKE.

Pretty crazy! I was so surprised when I saw it. And also alarmed at how big it is--I wish all of you lovely readers and Richelle Mead fans could come over and share it! We would have a Bloodlines party, because I also got some fun swag along with with this package--Bloodlines temporary tattoos! Not golden lilies, unfortunately, but they are awesome!

Anyway, I did finish Bloodlines the other day, and I have to say, it was awesome! Same awesome writing as the Vampire Academy series, but it's suspenseful and full of action in different ways. I was always a Dimitri girl before, but after Bloodlines, I really like Adrian a lot--I think you really get to know him a lot better in this book...so, that's something Adrian fans have to be happy about!

What about you guys? Looking forward to Bloodlines? Are you all for Dimitri, Adrian, or are you undecided?

I cannot tell you how jealous I am! I love getting bookish packages in the mail, and this one beats them all. Enjoy the cake:)

Can't wait for Bloodlines!

You're so lucky!! I wasn't certain how I would like Bloodlines since Sydney didn't make much of an impression with me, but now I'm starting to get really excited.

Dimitri will always be my favorite, but I definitely like Adrian, too. He showed a real soft side once he and Rose were actually dating, so I'd like to see more of that when he's NOT competing with Dimitri ;)
