Because you can't judge a book by its cover

I am super excited to be part of the Triple Threat, discussing all things Supernatural, Twilight and Vampire Diaries.

The Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith was a trilogy originally published in 1991 but due to public demand Smith wrote a fourth book, Dark Reunion in 1992.  Smith continued the series in 2009 with The Return: Nightfall and released this month The Return: Shadow Souls (trailer below).  Okay, enough with the history lesson, let’s get down to the fun stuff. Damon vs. Stefan, bad boy vs. good soul, which one do you drool over more?

Personally, while I drool over the bad boy, I always place my loyalty with the good boy. There is something that gets me going about the devotion of a good man. His willingness to do whatever it takes to save the woman he loves gives me warm fuzzies.  What do you think?

I have to admit I am one of those few women in the world who does not care for the Twilight series.  It all boils down to Bella, her whining drives me nuts.  (Although I am a total team Jacob!) That being said, I do enjoy a good vampire story and read the Vampire Diaries series several years ago when a friend introduced me to the series.  I like Elena much better than Bella, Elena is not content to sit around and wait for the problems in her life to be solved, she jumps in and makes things happen. Of course, sometimes she jumps in and makes things worse but at least she is doing something.

At the end of Nightfall we still don’t know who Elena will end up, which brother do you think she will choose?  A couple of cool things,visit Savvy Readers, leave a comment and win a copy of a L.J. Smith book. Also, L.J. Smith has a couple of Short Stories available to read for free her site. Finally, a couple of cool sites where all things VD are discussed:

2 Responses to VD, Have you Caught it?

  • Terry Kate says:

    I know I read the books back in the day. Now I watch the show and I am getting ready to reread the books. Seeing the Book Trailer makes me want the new one too! I recalled Damon – not being as bad in the books as he is portrayed in the show. I can not imagine a debate on whether or not to choose between brothers on the show, but we shall see what new seasons bring.

    Thanks for the great Post!

    I adore VD! It’s got great action mixed with Damon’s snarkiness. I haven’t read the books yet, but the show totally has me wanting to. And no, you’re not the only one who’s not a Twilight fan. I don’t care for it either. Bella is weak and whiny and Edward is unattractively too broody.

Why Ratings?
It is true you can't judge a book by its cover, you also can't judge a book's graphic content by its cover. NovelReaction's goal is to provide readers with a graphic content so they can make an informed decision regarding the books they want to read. (Also, to have a great place for people to discuss books.) So sit back, pull up a beverage, and read on!
Graphic Ratings*

1 = kissing
2 = kissing, some fondling
3 = descriptive stripping but no sex
4 = sex scene but not descriptive in details
5 = full descriptive sex scene

*I am rating a specific book by an author, not the author's style. If I am aware an author writes a specific way, I will let you know.
