  1. Vampire Academy could be so cool! I hope they do well with it or I'm kicking somebody! I also have to read Delirium before it's a movie >.<

  2. You haven't read Delirium yet? There are some changes people are concerned about, but I guess when it comes to television, many things tend to be different.. especially when there are only 3 books. Concessions have to be made.

    I agree. Vampire Academy can be so good. I like the casting so far.
