Re-readathon: Frostbite by Richelle Mead ~ Chapter 6 - 10

To keep up with our goal of re-reading more of our favorite books and re-discover them we created this challenge to help accomplish that goal. We will read five chapters each week with a blog post every sunday. 
Co-hosted by Christina @ Booksane and me!

Frostbite (Vampire Academy #2) by Richelle Mead
Paperback, 328 pages
Published September 1st 2009 by Razorbill

It’s winter break at St Vladimir’s, and a massive Strigoi vampire attack has put the school on high alert. This year’s trip away from the academy to the wintery peaks of Idaho has suddenly become mandatory.

But Rose’s troubles seem to follow her wherever she goes—dealing with the pain of knowing that her relationship with her tutor Dimitri can never be, things get even more complicated when one her closest friends admits his feelings for her.

The glittering winter landscape may create the illusion of safety but Rose—and her heart—are in more danger than she ever could have imagined...

I have to say that reading five chapters a week and posting once a week is much easier for me and doesn't feel so "heavy" for the blog, so yay. =D

Chapter 6 - 10

| As always beware for the spoilers if you haven't read the book yet. |

Chapter 6

Chapter six was good. Really good. And I actually did remember this chapter pretty well because of Janine Hathaway, Rose's mother. I loved that Janine took it upon her to do a training with Rose because Dimitri just got back from driving Tasha somewhere and back. Janine and Rose have some serious issues to work through. And as Rose kept mouthing off to her mother, it wasn't too surprising that Janine hit her. Of course, not on purpose. I think she just slipped up. Still, not fun to receive a black eye from your mother. 

Chapter 7:

Chapter even pretty much start with Mia being a bitch once again. This time she was taunting Rose about the black eye her mother gave her. I think Rose should break Mia's nose again. After that Rose went to Lissa, who was getting ready for a date with Christian. They talk a little about a lot of things, Spirit, Mason...
After Lissa is gone Rose gets pulled into Lissa's head while she's making out with Christian.

Chapter 8:

Inside Lissa's head, Rose realizes that Lissa and Christian are getting it on for real and tries hard to get out of Lissa's head but it doesn't work right away so she's forced to watch a little of it. After that Rose runs into Mason (that cutiepie!) and they talk about this and that until Rose arrives at training with Dimitri. They get into some arguments until Rose gets seriously pissed and kisses Dimitri to prove a point. And Dimtiri kissed her back (squeeee!). Of course after that it's all like, no we can't do that, blah blah. SIGH!

Chapter 9:

This chapter was so very sad for Rose. She's invited to the christmas party/gathering of Tasha, where also Lissa, Christian, Mason, Dimitri and her mother are attending. Dimitri and Tasha are being cosy and talking easily. When Rose and Janine go to Rose's room to talk, Janine lets it slip that Tasha is interesting in Dimitri not only to get him as her guardian but also to have babies with. Rose was very much shocked and I really did feel bad for her.

Chapter 10:

Chapter ten is probably my favorite chapter so far. It's finally time for the ski trip and Rose is very happy about it so she doesn't have to see Dimitri a lot after what her mother told her about Tasha and him. Rose hangs out a lot with Mason, Lissa and Christian. She even decides she wants to move on from Dimitri, with Mason. So they go skiing, all four of them, Rose and Mason doing crazy stunts while Lissa and Christian take it slower. And then...
We all know and remember how he enters. The first sentence he says is pretty epic: "Hey, litte dhampir."
He and Rose talk a little, Adrian flirts a lot. We also find out he's an Ivashkov, which is a huge, wealthy royal moroi family. Of course Mia has to enter suddenly and get into it with Rose, while Adrian makes cat noises. Always makes me laugh. And I love when Rose leaves that he says "I'll see you soon." because we all know what he means. :)

Any thoughts on these chapters and post?
Let me know!


  1. I actually think Janine did mean to punch Rose to teach her a lesson - Just my 2 cents - someone that good doesn't mess up like that. I am totally with you that chapter 10 is my favourite chapter! I loved meeting Adrian all over again *swoons* - Tee hee! Great recap Stephanie :) I am enjoying this re-readathon once again!!
