Ohh my, ohhh my...I have been waiting for this for a long while. It seems as if Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series is getting a new look and the cover of Blood Promise is revealed.
The only issue I have is that now the series will be going hardcover. That totally bums me out and enrages me a bit, because that makes the books even more expensive and offsets my book collection.
Thanks to Vania at Reverie Media for giving me the heads up on this :)

i like the new look, but sadly am no longer a fan of the series after shadow kiss. That book was a major bummer.

Ohhh Amy, I know I cried but ole' bucket of tears with the last book, but only because of how amazing it was (and yeah the ending tore my heart out). I am sorry that you will not be reading anymore, hopefully you can reconsider. I am sure Richelle has something amazing in store for us.... :)

Ohhhh I cried so hard, Amy I hope you dont give up on the series. I am sure that Richelle is going to get us all a great story in the next installment.
To me that would be like turning off Gone With the Wind before the end!!!

Amy, please don't give up! I think Richelle has great things in store for us in Blood Promise!!

The covers do look better. I hate it when they switch from Paper to hardcover!

I hate when a series can't either all be paperback or all be hardcover. The new one looks good. I dont like the new third cover though.

I love the new covers, but now I'll have the old ones! Nooo! And I agree with you on the hardcover thing, it totally makes your series collection look weird. Grrr!

Personally, I love a HB book. It keeps better and I can cover it with my bro dart covers that keep them all shiny and on my shelves in neet order. Besides my all the ones I have already are signed by Richelle...grrrr

Thanks for this wonderful information. I can't wait for BLOOD PROMISE. I guess this is what you get when a series gets really popular. They put it out in hardback. The covered didn't change that much. Only SHADOW KISS looks really different.

I hear they will be in a box set too sometime this year. November I think. I think I'll just get that...

I really love this vampire academy series. I never knew it existed until like last friday. I already read all three books and i'm sooo anxious for blood promise. I don't know what will happen i mean i do have my theories but hopefully Richelle will surprise me. Hey what other books do you guys recommend?

Geez, I feel like I have been waiting forever for this!! The ending to the last one, was sooo surprising and it killed me that Blood Promise wasn't and still isnt out yet!! D:

please don't give up on the series. I cried to but I just know that Blood Promise will be better and mor exciting than the others and they were pretty exciting.
I know how all of you feel about Blood Promise going hardback I have all the other ones in paperback and now it will look all weird. I'll have to ge them all in hardback if they come that way in a set.

I really hate that Blood Promise is going to go hardback, I just don't like it!! But while I am waiting for the book to come out I like to daydream about what will happen!! I was really shocked & a little disapointed when I finished Shadow Kiss b/c of Dimitri but now I have hope that Rose and Adrain will have some sort of relationship together in the near future.(Adrain, over time, grew on me so now I kind of like his character.) CAN'T WAIT!!

Omg!i can't wait!i hope that Adrain and Rose get together. i love the books but Shadow kiss's end i kinda cried

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
