Fae Friday – Back to School

Happy Fae Friday everyone! By now I’m counting down the days until I leave this country. It seems I’m a lot more excited to leave now than I was in January… Anyway, let’s do some Fae Friday stuff!


Fae Friday is hosted by Caffeinated Fae, and you can find all future prompts on her blog! All you gotta do is link back to her page and have fun with the prompt! Here is this week’s prompt:

“It’s officially time for school to start, so this curious wannabe fae wants to know what is a book you enjoyed that takes place at a school?”

Unfortunately for me, all my classes will be 100% online this semester. It’s also my last semester as a grad student, so that means I’ve spent exactly ONE MONTH in class, and that was February… Oh well, nothing we can change about that. Though I am a little sad. Campus life can be a lot of fun!

Vampire Academy book cover

Vampire Academy

By Richelle Mead

Lissa Dragomir is a Moroi princess: a mortal vampire with a rare gift for harnessing the earth’s magic. She must be protected at all times from Strigoi; the fiercest vampires – the ones who never die. The powerful blend of human and vampire blood that flows through Rose Hathaway, Lissa’s best friend, makes her a dhampir. Rose is dedicated to a dangerous life of protecting Lissa from the Strigoi, who are hell-bent on making Lissa one of them.

After two years of freedom, Rose and Lissa are caught and dragged back to St. Vladimir’s Academy, a school for vampire royalty and their guardians-to-be, hidden in the deep forests of Montana. But inside the iron gates, life is even more fraught with danger… and the Strigoi are always close by.

Rose and Lissa must navigate their dangerous world, confront the temptations of forbidden love, and never once let their guard down, lest the evil undead make Lissa one of them forever…

Why Vampire Academy

Vampire Academy was the first book I thought of when I read the prompt. I love any type of school setting, and I wish I had more books of this kind. I read this series a super long time ago, but I’ve always wanted to do a re-read. Maybe I’ll get to it when I don’t feel so pressured to read only new books… Also, I really enjoyed the spin off of this series, Bloodlines! Those books also take place at a school, but they’re a hell of a lot different from St. Vladimir’s. Like, it’s in California. And it’s also a normal-people school, sooo… Anyway, both series are lots of fun, and I love Mead’s take on vampires!

That’s it for today! A short and sweet Fae Friday post. Tell me about your school situation, is your school opening its doors, or do they have an adjusted plan in place?
