My Opinion :

So, I received two copies of The Golden Lily. Now, let me explain how that happened. The first copy, I won in a giveaway on Twitter from the US publisher. The book (almost) never came! It took more than a month! And so, since I was in contact with the Canadian publisher, they sent me another copy. And so, that's why I ended up with TWO pretty copies! But, I did host a giveaway of my extra copy :D

Bloodlines finished with not that much of a cliffhanger... although, weirdly, it made me want The Golden Lily even MORE!

The Golden Lily was action-packed, amazing! You don't want to miss it!

I simply LOVED this book. And, LOVED isn't enough to describe my feeling towards this book. I mean, if I could give a copy to EVERYONE ON EARTH, I would, but, due to my calculations, we are 7 000 000 000 people on Earth, and if a copy is, let's say 15$ CND (Hardcover, since those are better and prettier), then, it would cost be 105 000 000 000$... and I don't have that money (sadly, because I totally would give everyone on Earth a copy!).

I don't know how to express my love for this novel... it's just... so HUGELY AMAZING, AWESOME, FREAKISHLY GREAT, INCREDIBLE, IT BLEW ME AWAY, SO SO SO GOOD, A MUST READ, (and that doesn't even cover it!)

Richelle Mead is, and will always be, an incredible writer capable of making me want to not do anything else but read her books (and so, that's why I'll be buying other books by her :D). The writing is fast-paced, and you can't get enough of the book!

The characters really grow up in this book, especially Adrian.

In Vampire Academy (which, I recommend you read that series before you read Bloodlines and The Golden Lily, or else, it'll be kind of confusing), Adrian thinks pretty much just about himself, but, in Bloodlines and The Golden Lily, he... doesn't. He cares for Sydney very much. And, he starts being more... competent.

Sydney is a strong lead female character. She's not the Rose type of strong lead female character;  but she's smart and nice to everyone. She's a great character. I find myself enjoying her smart-but-does-not-know-that-is-not-something-people-normally-know moments (I also find myself laughing out loud, which causes me weird looks from people, but, oh well *shrugs*)

Anyways, now I don't know what I'll do until I get the next novel in this series! I mean, I'm actually writing this on April 10th, you know! So, miss Richelle Mead, please, please, hurry up!
