"Bloodlines" by Richelle Mead ~ Top of Indie Charts of YA Fiction

Published by:  Penguin Young Readers Group


Noted in GalleyCat as being at the Top of Indie Charts of YA Fiction and one of the books people will be talking about for the next month, "Bloodlines" is breaking onto bookstore displays for the eager hands of hundreds looking for the latest Richelle Mead series starter.  Mead, the author of "The Vampire Academy" series, is the darling of all things vampire to YAs.

I mentioned this book to you last week as a review coming up for me, and I'm reading it today!  Here are a couple of trailers for your entertainment, meanwhile:







So, going out to get your copy?  Or, have you already read it and want to tell us about your take on it?

The first book in Richelle Mead's brand-new teen fiction series - set in the same world as Vampire Academy.When alchemist Sydney is ordered into hiding to protect the life of Moroi princess Jill Dragomir, the last place she expects to be sent is a human private school in Palm Springs, California. But at their new school, the drama is only just beginning.

Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Bloodlines explores all the friendship, romance, battles and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive - this time in a part-vampire, part-human setting where the stakes are even higher and everyone's out for blood.

Scorpio Richelle Mead is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of urban fantasy books for both adults and teens. Originally from Michigan, Richelle now lives in Seattle, Washington where she works on her three series full-time. Before becoming a writer, she considered a few different career paths. She received a liberal arts degree from the University of Michigan, an MA in Comparative Religion from Western Michigan University, and a Master in Teaching (Middle & High School English) degree from the University of Washington. In the end, she decided writing was the way for her but believes all of her education prepared her for it. A life-long reader, Richelle has always had a particular fascination with mythology and folklore. When she can actually tear herself away from books (either reading or writing them), she enjoys bad reality TV, traveling, trying interesting cocktails, and shopping for dresses that she then hardly ever wears. She is a self-professed coffee addict, runs on a nocturnal schedule, and has a passion for all things wacky and humorous.

I haven't read any of her books. I really want to read Bloodlines because I've read so many positive reviews. I also have the Vampire Academy books that need to be read.
