The Vampire Academy series is a guilty pleasure of mine. I love the books, the characters, and the vampire lore. I have recommended the series to many friends.I found that in [b:Spirit Bound|6479259|Spirit Bound (Vampire Academy, #5)|Richelle Mead|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51iiY6urtEL._SL75_.jpg|6670482], Rose's character grated on my nerves. I really wanted to like Rose. I wanted her to save Dimitri. I wanted her to be with Dimitri. I was Team Dimitri. I just found that Rose was so angsty and so self-involved. It really took away from my enjoyment of the book.I look forward to reading the next book because I really want to know what happens next.
