New kid alert! Lauren from the Headless Owl has joined our class! And Ashelynn is out of class this week due to technical difficulties.
Week Four assigned reading: Blood Promise by Richelle Mead.
Very brief plot summary:
Rose leaves Lissa and goes off in search of Dimitri, whom she hasn't seen since the Strigoi attack. She has to find him so she can keep a promise that she made. (It's a Blood Promise, right?) But ... things go wrong. To make matters worse, Rose is terribly worried about Lissa, who doesn't seem to be herself. At all.
What I loved about this book:
Rose travels to Russia
I've always wanted to go to St. Petersburg. Jealous! Except Rose is there for business, not pleasure. The kind of killing-the-person-you-love-business ... eeep! If I were Ashelynn I would have put that in all caps. But I have more self-control on the keyboard than that!
Sydney! She shows up for the first time in this book and since she has short hair, I imagine her as Michelle Williams:
There are new kids at St. Vlad's and as usual, they're NO GOOD. (Whoops, how did those caps sneak in there?)
Lissa's having a hard time with Rose away:
But, to be honest, at 55% way through Blood Promise, I'm getting a little restless. Not a lot is happening. Then, all of a sudden WHOA NOW WE ARE TALKING! Look who's here:

Dimitri shows up and I think Rose is capable of doing what she came to do, but no. She can't. Because she's so torn between doing what she thinks Dimitri would want and the fact that she loves him.
But then FINALLY she's back to herself and does what she needs to do:
How do I know Rose is back to herself? Because she tells Adrian to write her an outline detailing why he would be a good boyfriend. An OUTLINE?
And Adrian is all, "I'm on it." What????
All of this is terribly upsetting, so I can't wait to dive into the next book, which Jen M from Some Like It Paranormal promises is all kinds of awesome.
Leave a comment and tell me what you think, but don't tell me what happens next! I'll be offline for part of the day, but I'll be back tonight :)
