Hey Bloggies! Don't ask me where I got that name, it just sounded good!
Anyway, if you haven't already seen sneak peeks of the Vampire Academy: The Graphic Novel #1, expected to be released August 23, 2011, you can find it by clicking on the link there but first, please take a look at the pic below.
This is the cover of the graphic novel and I made it nice and big because I want to know what you think of Rose, Lissa and Dmitri...because I'm about to tell you what I think!
Rose and Lissa? One word: plain. Nothing about them excites me nor does anything about them stand out. They're boring. I look at Rose and I'm not intimidated like everyone who meets her, is. Lissa doesn't look nearly as beautiful as I was led to believe, a royal beauty, so to speak. And Dmitri? In this picture, for me, he is all wrong. Yes, Dmitri is tall. Yes, Dmitri is strong. But neither feature did I imagine so...prominent. Was it just me? Anyway, please let me know what YOU guys think of our favorite trio in color!
So what are you guys doing next Tuesday? That's nice. Who me? Oh, I'll be at a book signing with a little known author by the name of Cassandra Clare! Next Tuesday, May 3, 2011 from 6:00-8:00pm, Cassandra Clare will be signing at the Books of Wonder in Manhattan, NYC. She will be joined by Holly Black and debut author Lauren DeStefano. I hope to see you there!
I must have been the first person to purchase this book today at my local Borders, because they weren't even on the shelf yet! Which meant the guy had to go in the back to retrieve my copy, which also means I did not get to choose my own copy. I am very picky with the copy I take home. It has to be perfect. If I was able to download pictures to my computer I would show you how the cover is not quite folded right and how it sticks out on the top. I will attempt to fix it but it will probably bug me for the rest of eternity!
I have to say, I'm already disappointed with this book because it's thinner than the first one. Boo. Click the link to find out why Christopher Farnsworths' vampires don't sparkle!
