    My god What can I say about this book IT IS A BAD BOOK It has bad cheesy prose, a snotty annoying and kind of a bimbo heroine and the cliched, brooding Byronic vampire hero, needless to say that the moment they lay their eyes upon each other they fall hopelessly in love Oh yes I can t believe I almost forgot The mother of all originalities it also has a love triangle I think it s safe to say that this book is the poster book for cheesy YA pnr books and since it was writt My god What can I say about this book IT IS A BAD BOOK It has bad cheesy prose, a snotty annoying and kind of a bimbo heroine and the cliched, brooding Byronic vampire hero, needless to say that the moment they lay their eyes upon each other they fall hopelessly in love Oh yes I can t believe I almost forgot The mother of all originalities it also has a love triangle I think it s safe to say that this book is the poster book for cheesy YA pnr books and since it was written in 1991 it s even safer to say that the others copied L J Smith s tropes and not the other way around.But did I enjoyed it I am ashamed to admit itbut yes I did This book is a guilty pleasure, pure silly escapism and I m afraid I will be back for

    Written long before Twilight SMeyer s claim of never having read Vampire fiction is absurd There are FAR TOO MANY parallel s between LJ Smith s characters and Smeyer s.And when it comes down to it SMeyer has nothing on LJ Smith.The story is refreshing and action packed The characters are likeable Stefan and Damon are interesting And they don t SPARKLE All in all 9 billion times better than Twilight I can t wait to read the next one

    Okay, this was MY Twilight before there was Twilgiht I read this series when I was about thirteen I was already into vampires in my preppy goth kind of way, and this one made me say SQUEE This book is from the early 90 s, but with the Twilight phenomenon, it s now been reissued, bound with a new cover featuring some blonde model, and is being considered as the basis of a TV series on CW not sure how I feel about that I like the original cover better featured above I had to bid on ebay f Okay, this was MY Twilight before there was Twilgiht I read this series when I was about thirteen I was already into vampires in my preppy goth kind of way, and this one made me say SQUEE This book is from the early 90 s, but with the Twilight phenomenon, it s now been reissued, bound with a new cover featuring some blonde model, and is being considered as the basis of a TV series on CW not sure how I feel about that I like the original cover better featured above I had to bid on ebay for this baby Some parts of this are cheesy, but the story is this Hot, slightly bitchy and arrogant girl next door catches the eye of TWO vampire brothers who hate each other Insert drama here Then, in the later books, throw in witches and werewolves and angry ancient vampires bent on killing everyone Plus, it s got rockin 90 s fashions, like hot pink dresses and perms What s not to love If you liked Twilight, you ll probably like this Sometimes I wonder if Stephenie Meyer actually stole some ideas from LJ Smithsome parts are similar, but I guess there s only so many original ways to write about the human girl vampire boy, Romeo and Juliet ish storyline before things start to overlap in similarity They re both YA, they re both scary romance, they both have cheese, and they re both slightly addictive

    After reading the vampire trilogy by Stephenie Meyer, I thought I would continue my bloodthirsty fiction rampage with this older teenage vampire trilogy Lo and behold, it s almost the same story Oh, Stephenie Meyer, now I know how you cranked out those three fat should have been heavily edited books in such a short span of time For shame

    I came to that book by the internet A lot of people recommended it and I thought it MUST be right Gosh, did I failed It s one of the first book I was eager to give away and I really regret that I bought it At first the cover of my german version is ugly yeah I know, don t judge a book by its cover, but it IS ugly Second, I am really fed up with all this ooohw dark handsome mysterious guy or even better TWO gorgeous brothers I mean do we normal human girls now all have to wait for our Mr I came to that book by the internet A lot of people recommended it and I thought it MUST be right Gosh, did I failed It s one of the first book I was eager to give away and I really regret that I bought it At first the cover of my german version is ugly yeah I know, don t judge a book by its cover, but it IS ugly Second, I am really fed up with all this ooohw dark handsome mysterious guy or even better TWO gorgeous brothers I mean do we normal human girls now all have to wait for our Mr Handsome What s about true beauty The beauty of the heart Then the next point, Elena the school queen Talking about cliche Ugh I really don t want to write about that.While her character isn t very complex, so it is the same with her friends and cute little Stefano, the mysterious loverboy It s just like oh I saw you and you re like SO gorgeous I ll love you forever There is no developement, it s just given from the author.And that is a pity, because I started to watch the series on TV and I actually liked it better.UPDATE Series isn t that much better

    1 5 StarsThis is the case when the adaption is better than the book.This book is just sooooooooo bad.I read this book back in 2015 because I was a big fan of the television show which I m not any and wow what a disappointment it was Elena was very annoying and arrogant, probably one of the worst characters I ve read, and honestly all the characters were pretty horrible This book is ridiculous and a waste of time, don t read unless you want lose some brain cells.

When I say years, I mean it It all started when I was in high school, around 6 years ago, and I was in love with the Vampire Diaries TV Show When I found out there are books as well, I begged my mum to buy them for me And once I had them, I never got to read them, because teenage logicI recently noticed the Vampire Diaries books sitting on my shelf, forgotten, and I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to read it in October, because of the whole spooky vibe So there it is now even thought the wheel didn t choose it, I did, because it deserved the attention Elena Gilbert is a popular girl in high school and she always gets what she wants Boys want to be with her, girls hate her, or want to be her best friends And when this new boy Stefan comes into town, all mysterious, Elena wants him But Stefan is hiding a deadly secret that Elena might now be ready for just yet And her life, as well as the life of everyone living in Fell s Church is in grave danger Elena finds herself between two brothers one who came for a new life, and the other, who came for revengeReading this book, while already knowing what the plot it, I thought I found find it boring But no I still enjoyed every single page of it, and I still devoured this book in one day.From the first chapter, this book is intense and captures your attention It is written in third person, but it also contains diary entries that belong to Elena and capture her deepest thoughts that she doesn t dare share with anyone else I loved ElenaHer character is exactly what I was expected and what I have known to love brave and fierce, and also willing to sacrifice her own happiness and safety for the people she loves the most Elena s friends, Meredith and Bonnie are the friends every girl needs Funny and caring A few pages in, and you will get to love them too.Stefan the mysterious new guy in school The guy that tries to stay away from the girl he really wants because he s a danger to her A little bit of Twilight vibes, but we can get past that Because there is one thing that Twilight didn t have, that you can find reading The Vampire Diaries DAMON Even though we only get a glimpse of him in this book, we can feel his presence throughout the whole book We can feel his connection with Elena, as weird and spooky as it may be All that danger that he carries with him, we all want to see whether there s anything good in him at all His story is the most intriguing one, I think His hunger for revenge makes you really understand both sides of the story and choose a side for yourself So, are you team Stefan, or team DamonI loved reading this it was an amazing experience and it reminded me of my high school days, of those innocent happy memories My teenage life didn t include vampires, but hey it was still awesome Pick the Vampire Diaries up if you love Young Adult spooky books, if you loved Twilight and if you love vampire, love and mystery stories in general.Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Pinterest
