    1. 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 safe [...]

    2. 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

    3. I didn t expect this book to be what it was I was planning on reading the series, but I kinda forced myself to finish this book, which is obviously not a good sign.Elena s characters wasn t likeable I don t mind the being popular part, I just couldn t stand it when she was ordering people around to find out information about Stefan And when she realizes that gasp , she might not get the guy, it s like the world will end because she didn t get what she wanted for once.The highs and lows barely re [...]

    4. Read Awakening legally and for free here courtesy of the publisher But please keep adequate amounts of brain bleach on hand.What can I say I read this on the usually safe assumption that the book would be better than its adaptation Differences are usually in the book s favor, but for once this is not the case The TV series is a dramatically revised and very loose adaptation of the book, and a HUGE IMPROVEMENT I d give the TV series 4 stars, but this book is among the most worthless I have ever r [...]

    5. 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

    6. 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 b [...]

    7. 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 [...]

    8. This book was pretty good, didn t really expect that I enjoyed it alot and will be continuing with the series Elena was quite annoying, and the insta love was just ridiculous, but I found myself being able to look past that.I feel like the series is only going to get better, I hope that s the case

    9. Gah This book To be honest, since Fury disappointed me, I didn t expect much from The Vampire Diaries.ButAnd so am I.Everyone in this book is batshit crazy Damon is batshit crazy, Katherine is batshit crazy and Elena isn t really far.I should really stop with the pictures.Elena, besides being crazy as fuck, has no personality Actually, none of the characters has a personality No dreams, no ambitions, no hobbies, no fears They re all like blank papers But of course, Elena is a super duper special [...]

    10. If the show had not been made, if I had not read a ton of other vampire books, THE AWAKENING might have been OK Since the show was made and since I have read a ton of YA PNR with vampires as the central figure I am amazed that I finished it First This book pales in comparison to the show So from here on out I am not even going to bother with a comparison.Second I hate Elena Flighty, believing herself entitled, and very insensitive to the needs and feelings of those around her poor Matt I really [...]

    11. 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.

    12. Picture the scene It s 1996, I m 12 years old I m at the library down the street, perusing the single shelf that makes up the YA section I find this little paperback that promises deadly love Vampire brothers, you say Unspeakable horror, you say I take the book home and read it in the course of an afternoon I AM AWESTRUCK WHAT IS THIS MAGICAL BOOK I ve never read anything like it.Immediately I make my dad take me to the bookstore in the mall so he can buy me the rest of the series I spent the re [...]

    13. These were some of my favorite books as a teenager They are about a high school student, Elena Gilbert, who is torn between two hot vampire brothers Melodrama ensues They are not the most mature books, but they are all about nostalgia for me Of course, as I get older, I think that a lot of the things Elena does are downright stupid, but I still remember how romantic it all seemed when I was 14.

    14. Well, well, well This is the book that actually started the cliche storm that influenced the Twilight series Put it in your book history book Whaa , my dear readers I haven t seen the TV series yet I will until I finish the entire series I can t wait for Nina Dobrev, one of my favorite actresses , but I m pretty sure it s so much better than this I don t know, maybe it was the writing that set me off I wouldn t say it was terrible, it just wasn t good I will say it once again Show, don t tell, [...]

    15. I ve watched the tv show for quite a while, which I admit definitely colors my reception of the book But I could not get past the first few chapters I tried, because I wanted to see how the books differed from the show I really did try, which is why I made it to the third chapters instead of the just the first The writing was sub par and I just could not relate to any of the characters They seemed like caricatures, all obsessed with popularity and being the queen bee, and I just couldn t take it [...]

    16. Creo que un buen indicador para valorar un libro es su capacidad para atrapar al lector y, al menos en mi caso, no pod a soltar esta novela Si bien al comienzo podr a sospecharse una historia simple y superficial, al ir avanzando va tomando un cariz bastante oscuro, con conflictos muy bien elaborados y en que los personajes van tomando mucha fuerza Adem s, destaco el estilo de la autora muy limpio, claro y con un equilibrio perfecto en lo descriptivo como para crear todo el entorno en la imagina [...]

    17. Okay so I remember back when Netflix had at least the first 3 seasons of this show on there or maybe 2 can t remember anyway, my neighbor told my parents about this show and how she LOVED it and so they watched the first 3 episodes and quit I on the other hand saw the first 20 minutes of it and my curiosity piqued especially after seeing the gorgeous sexy Salvatore brothers haha and I started on episode 1 and just kept going and been watching live after the season that was on netflix So that s w [...]

    18. After reading this book for the fifth or sixth time, I still enjoyed it It reminds me of Twilight by Stephenie Meyer I have about a million positive things to say and only one negative Elena says I love you too quickly The fact that such a serious statement is made at such an early stage in the bookritates me I love you is not something to be taken lightly, and when said too early it makes me think of puppy love, not undying love.Other than that single annoyanceis book is endearing It was writte [...]

    19. Vampire Month of May with Karly, Jess, and HeatherYowza That was brutal How did they make a show of this again I mean, I know the show is cheesy and all, but thisis is so, soooo, much worse Elena is a BLONDE special snowflake and self proclaimed Queen of Robert E Lee High School whose only goal in life is to get boys Totally sounds like someone an old world vampire would want, right Stefan is so blah and boring though, he probably needs some immaturity in his life Damon, hmmwe didn t get much of [...]

    20. Well, I didn t like this book Not at all I read half of the book and then got really really bored so I scanned the pages til the end I was both relieved and disappointed Disappointed because the book wasn t good I did not like the characters especially Elena And relieved because I was saved from another half a day of pure stupidity.Elena s obsession with the Stefan was just too annoying plus there were a bunch of stupidly infuriating scenes that were so, well infuriating and stupid Take the ribb [...]

    21. The Awakening The Vampire Diaries 1 Genre YA paranormal romancePages 272 Published 1991The Vampire Diaries 1Ok the vampire diaries First yes I get why they have this cover, but when she has dark hair and Elena has blonde, it s just weird.Elana fancies a boy, the boy Stefan is a vampire, she wants him, he is scared for her sake, they get together.That was the short version.First, 17 year old girl, 500 year old vampire, eww.Ok to the story I didn t like Elena She was the most beautiful girl at sch [...]

    22. NAME THAT BOOK First we have oh great i can t waiten add some lineswait for it and then the big reveal.i m shaking in anticipation

    23. Less of a review and of me venting, sorry You ve been warned.I was thinking of starting this off by saying The Awakening reads like fanfiction, but that would be an insult to fanfiction I m pretty sure the only reason I got through The Awakening was because I came to the conclusion that Elena has narcissistic personality disorder On the first day back at school, Elena sees Stephan and decides she s going to have him, even if it killed her If it killed both of them, she d have him 30 Okay, that [...]

    24. A pretty enjoyable, though fairly standard, short and easy, teen vampire romance novel.I was kind of disappointed with this book actually, and I honestly don t really know why I expected it to be than what it was I d been excited for quite a while to start reading this series, and I d hyped it up in my mind so much that I was sure it was going to be the best vampire book I d read in ages, deep and dark and smart and full of twists turns and non stop action, adventure, excitement and plot Not so [...]

    25. i remember reading this for the first time and loving itd i still do, even with the poor adaptation to tv.

    26. Before there was Twilight, or True Blood , there was the Vampire Diaries series, soon to be a tv series on the CW With many changes from the books, I m sure Oh, no, not another teen vampire series, I can hear you thinking, and yes, it has similarities to Twilight a school setting, a vampire human romance, and a good vs evil vampire subplot But the Vampire Diaries came first they were written in the early 90s , and the similarities end there.Instead of a dorky new girl as a protagonist, Elena is [...]
