Vampire Academy Review As Told By Stick Figures

You know how sometimes you love a book so much that written reviews just don't do your feelings justice? And so you're forced to make potentially embarrassing videos to convey your feelings instead?

Oh? No? That's just me? *Shrugs*

My thoughts on the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead, told through stick figure drawings, 'cause...why not?

  1. This is the coolest (and most creative) way to review a book! Who knew stick figures could be so cute? ;)

  3. Did you only use one marker or did you have to use more? (I'm hoping you used a marker and I'm not just thinking this) lol. So cute! And I agree, this series is AWESOME and I feel slightly idiotic that it took me until this past month to read this series...and I already miss it. :(

  4. Dear Anna,

    I bow down to your awesomeness! Because of you and this video/review, I will read this series. I have not read on word of it, but after this I will commit to read the entire series. Every word.

    Jealous of your wicked sweet stick figures,
    Shannon =D

  5. Your stick figures are totally adorable.

    (I'm not gonna lie, though, these books still don't appeal to me at all.)

So I'll hopefully be getting started on those soon.

  53. Anna-- How did I miss this?! This rocks. I must read this series! I started a video review of Wither in November because I didn't even have the words for that book and I'm STILL working on it because I feel like even my video isn't going to do it justice. Perhaps I should have employed the stick figure technique rather than what I did!! :P

    I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  54. That was really funny lol.
    :D

    ReplyDelete
  55. hahahaha.. It's beautiful! xDD

    ReplyDelete
  60. You know a post is epic when you're still getting comments on it 2 months later.

    I just heard about this one and I had to check it out. I, too, am a late adapter to VA and it was all the Twitter squee'ing over Last Sacrifice that made me think "hmm. maybe I should pick these up!"

    Epic, epic, epic, amazing, hilarious, etc. review. So cute.

    ReplyDelete
  61. OK you have just convinced me to add this to my TBR list. I had always avoided them, but this was soo cool and I can feel your enthusiasm. I actually want to read them now. :D

    ReplyDelete
  62. Oh my gosh. Best. Review. Ever!!! I laughed so hard at the Dimitri (omgomgomgomgomgomgomgomg) part. :) That was a very apt description of my feelings as well!!
