6 Reasons Why I'm Obsessed with Rose Hathaway

So I started reading the Vampire Academy series again... This is about my 4th go around. 
I know this series has been over for quite some time and Bloodlines is Richelle Mead's recent spin-off series, but for me, VA always lives on! 

I seriously adore the cast of characters Richelle Mead created in this series... My favorite of course being Rose!

So here are the 6 reasons of why I love Rose Hathaway:

1. She's altruistic

Rose always puts her friends before herself. In the series, she's constantly risking her life in order to save the ones she loves.

2. She's a true badass

Pretty much in every sense of the word.

3. She's impulsive

In my own life, I always tend to think things over carefully before I act- don't get my wrong, it's important to think things through before jumping head first. But I tend to over-analyze to the point where opportunities will pass by and regret will soon follow. I admire this character trait so much! Even though Rose's impulsive nature gets her into trouble throughout the entire series, she walks away with no regrets!

4. She's sexy- without even trying.

That takes some serious effort- but not for her!

5. She kicks major butt- literally.

Who doesn't love a kick ass heroine? Rose Hathaway is the epitome of girl power.

6. She's sassy.

That girl always has something to say, and it's not always proper or pleasant. Her constant witty banter Dimitri always makes me giggle.

So I ask you my VA readers, why do you love Rose Hathaway? I also love reading Rose quotes. Please post if you find any!

  1. I read the first book in this series a LONG time ago and don't remember much about it-- but I do remember being fond of this character!

  2. I haven't read them - but I do like that sword :)
