I started reading this series because I enjoyed the show so much I just had to read the books. What a disappointment. I know these were written pre-Twilight, but while reading this I felt like I was reading Twilight. It’s basically the same story, but the characters are not as likeable. Clearly Meyer ripped this one off but somehow she made the story more interesting, for me at least.

The main problem I had with this story was that Elena was a hard character for me to like. She came off very bratty and selfish. Stephan never became a crush for me. He was way too aloof. The romance scene where both characters decide they like each other was not well developed. All of a sudden they went from avoiding each other to “I’ll die for you”…bleh! I just couldn’t help rolling my eyes as I got to the end of the story. Thankfully, the show made some changes to make the characters more likeable.

This was pretty unimpressive. It wasn't awful but it didn't really have a whole lot of substance. It started off pretty good- I quite liked the beginning. However, Elena and Stefan were declaring their love for each other after literally one conversation and it all got a bit silly after that and I found myself rolling my eyes a few times. One minute they had never spoken two words to each other and the next minute they were 'in love'. It was just kind of silly. The writing was easy and light and it was a quick enough read which made up for the lack of everything else.more
16 years before Twilight, there were the Vampire Diaries! Seriously, they are SO much alike. I still prefer Twilight though, and it wasn't really my own choice to reread this so shortly after my first read of it, but it's being translated to Danish, so I was asked to review it for my publisher. Thankfully it's a quick read! It's not bad - just nothing special either.more
A very enjoyable read. The plot had enough of a difference to keep me enthralled and the multilayer characters were exciting to get to know. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.more

I started watching the series before reading the books. I think I prefer the series to the books, only because they picked some pretty delectable vampire men to star in it.more
I enjoyed this book reading about the relationship between Elena and Stefan and Damon. Unlike the tv show which I am a fan of Tyler, in the book not so much he really plays the bratty card well. I liked how Damon kept the mysteriousness of himself. Definitely a great teenage read!more
