I take it Tall Poppy Syndrome doesn’t exist in the US. Rose Hathaway is hot and she knows it. I don’t like false modesty, but blatant arrogance also pisses me off. Rose wouldn’t survive Australia, in which our motto is “get over yourself.”
But Rose’s melodramas make for sweet, nourishing crack. Yes, they’re trashy, but also deliciously fun to read. And in the end, isn’t that what reading should be about? Good thing I have the rest of the series ready and waiting on my bookshelf. I sense entertaining reading ahead!
It’s November 12th – Richelle Mead’s birthday. I was thrilled when Random House Australia bought the Oz rights for the Georgina Kincaid and the Dark Swan series. No word on whose bought the Oz rights for the Vampire Academy series, though. At present, I own the first two Succubus books, the first Vampire Academy, and the first Dark Swan. But greedy me naturally wants more 😉
Anyway, give the gift of royalties by purchasing Succubus Blues, Succubus on Top (Succubus Nights), Succubus Dreams, Vampire Academy, Frostbite, Shadow Kiss and Storm Born.
