Reads and Feeds with a giveaway?

BOOKS + FOOD
=
READS & FEEDS

This R&F post is going to be a little different. Or maybe a lot different.

One of the series that I have loved the longest has been the Vampire Academy series. Since I am going to see the movie in a couple of days, I wanted to share these books with you again. The pictures show the reading order for those of you who haven't already read all of them. You can click on the pictures to go to the Goodreads link for purchase info or blurbs.

I have read all of them a few times. I also have the first book of the spin off series but I must admit that I haven't read it. I loved Rose so much that I can't make myself read that book because it is not from her POV. :-(

Now comes the hard part. What do you suggest to eat while talking vampire books?

I would say something with a red sauce, ;-) but depending on the vampires, you may want to avoid garlic.

I found some interesting posts regarding vampires and food. You can check them out if you'd like.




Now last but not least, since it is getting close to Valentine's Day, I Love the Vampire Academy series, and I Love my followers aka YOU, I've decided to offer a giveaway. :D


It is open to all followers provided The Book Depository ships to you.

I will email the winner and you will have 48 hours to respond.

The winner will receive the VA book of their choice.

I reserve the right to cancel this giveaway if there aren't enough entries. (Hopefully this won't happen!) In order to help avoid this, Please Share the giveaway with others. The more the merrier! :D


There is a separate question in the Rafflecopter which you will get a point for.


Here is the question for the post and the CIG giveaway:

What food would you suggest to go with this post? or What would you serve a vampire?

  1. Hm.. I have a whole bunch of alcoholic drinks that I have for Vampires but I don't know about food. LOL Maybe these cinnamon apples that my family makes. They ooze red. I need to send you the recipe for them. Maybe that can be my next reads and feeds since I have to send you some. :)
    I loved this series too! I admit I still need to read the last one and I have the first in the spin off but haven't read that either. I may reread these again soon. Let me know what you think of the movie! I don't think I will be able to see it for awhile at least not for another couple of weeks.

    1. I will definitely let you guys know by Wednesday what I thought of the movie. I've heard both good & bad reviews for it most of the bad seemed to revolve around my fear ~ Dimitri. Some say the actor just didn't cut it. We'll see. Anyway, I just reread book one to be prepared for the movie. :-)

      That recipe sounds great. You could either suggest some spicy/sweet reads or you could tell us some of your fav vamp reads or maybe you have another idea, either way I'm sure it will be a hit!

      I can't believe you haven't read Last Sacrifice. Tsk! Tsk! It was GOOOOOOODDDDDDDD! :-) It was an awesome ending to the series!

    2. I know! ::hang head:: I'm going to reread these soon. And I'm sure I can think of something spicy to go with it! ;)

    1. Awesome suggestion Sophia! I am half afraid to read Bloodlines. It has been sitting on my shelf since it's release day. :-(

      Good Luck!

  4. I really need to see where i'm in the series because i can't remember so i perhaps will have to start from the start again but i told you i planned too after that since i'm reading it in french i will have to find the missing book.

    i'm curious about teh spin off , i know it's not easy to change the main point of view and often i'ma little disappointed when it happen but perhaps for once it would be the oone i prefer, who knows^^


    now what i would serve to a vampire, really that'sa good question and i really don't know i have idea for cocktail, but food...that'sa mystery i guess i often read they couldn't eat and thus i haven't though of it but as soon as i get an idea i will let you know

    i will share this don't worry and thank you a lot for showing us that you love us so often!

    1. :-) I think that helps to keep things interesting when we have different circumstances for different vampires depending on the series or author. So yes some vampires eat! Good Luck!

    2. We could think of it as it takes place in the same world but brand new series? I dont know. I'm hesitant too on spin offs when I love the original so much but shes a good author so I'm sure its great.

      Delete
    3. It is the same series but a new POV. The same characters are in it just almost no Rose & Dimitri, but mainly Jill, Adrian & Sydney.

      Delete
  5. I've read the first two book of the series! I love Rose's character very much, she's such a kick-ass! But.. my sister told me the ending of the series and now I'm not really sure I want to continue. I hope now that the movie is out I'll get motivated :)

    1. Oh that is a let down but I doubt she told you every detail. I'd still urge you to read them. :-)

  6. Blood with Sprite? I seem to be pairing a lot of drinks with Sprite. Or a Bloody Coke! Food...teeth fries? Lol.

    ReplyDelete
  7. And....nope I haven't read any books by the author before. I know, I'm a bad girl! Can't wait for the movie though. If I win I'll probably start with the first book!

    1. Oh my, if you like vampires, you should definitely read this series! :-)

  8. I have read the Vampire Academy series and enjoyed it very much. Even though I have Bloodlines, I have not read it yet. I would love to win a copy of The Golden Lily (Bloodlines #2).

    I would feed a vampire a Bloody Mary and a very rare steak.

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

      Delete
    4. It was at this spot that sells only popcorn. My fav's the movie theater kind too.

  11. I would probably serve vampires red velvet cake (GEDDIT? What makes the cake red...) then I'd probably serve it with clotted cream. Blood...clots....clotted cream? Haha!

    1. LOL! :-) You get points for creativity!

  12. If you loved the Vampire Academy series then you must read Bloodlines and the books in that series. I too loved Rose as the narrator. And I really did not think that there was anyway that I could love these new books narrated by Sydney as much as i loved VA. But after reading the first four books in the series I have to say that I may even love these books more. They are amazing.

    1. That is good to know! I'm still not sure, which is a little bit crazy. I love Richelle's writing style so I don't know why I won't just read it already! :-/

      Delete
    2. Because Rose is kick ass and you might feel like your cheating on Dimitri a bit? LOL
      Have you read her succubus series? (I cant remember if I saw that you did or not)

      Delete
    3. Maybe! :P

      No I haven't. I think I may have purchased book one though.

      Delete
    4. I've read the first 3 I think? I loved them. Georgina is another great character from her.

      Delete
    5. i've read the first 1 or 2 and i did love them ( it was the reason i bought the vampire academy series in fact) i'm curious about her new series though ( game of gods?) and i'm not sure wheiother to add it ort not on my list ( but it will be translated this year too since quick translating work)

      Delete
    6. Yea me too. I love her writing so I'll more than likely grab it. :)

      Delete
  13. I have read the series and really enjoyed all the books. I can't really pick a favorite but I'd probably pick the first book to win.
