Vampire Diaries and Goodbye To An Old Friend

The Vampire Diaries: The Awakening

I haven't read this series, but I love the t.v show!  The season finale was fantastic and it's been a great way to pass the time till True Blood's return next month.  I am wondering if I should read the books.  After Twilight I swore I'd not do YA any more.  I found it just wasn't satisfying me enough. Especially if you love PNR and suspense novels.

I don't really talk about tv shows too often on this blog, but Friday we watched the final episode ever of Smallville.  I didn't just like this series and Tom Welling, I loved it and I'm so sad it's over.  The finale was fantastic right down to him donning the suit, finally!!  It won't let me embed, but this link to you-tube shows Clark getting his suit.  I'll miss this show a lot.


  1. I have not read any of TVD books, but I LOVE the show. A friend of mine read them and said the tv show is much better --and has gone off the storyline of the books. She and I share our book & tv taste so I'm taking her word for it.

  2. I think the books are pretty different. I read them as a teen and liked them, but rereading them as an adult, they fell a little flat for me. If you aren't a big YA fan to start with, I'd say leave the books be and just enjoy the TV version

  3. I love The Vampire Diaries and I am also wondering about reading the books. I haven't watched a lot of Smallwille, though, I just wasn't able to find the time, although I like Superman series or films.

  4. My dad loved the show Smallville's always sad when a show you loved ends. I was wondering if you could give me info about your book club?

  5. Thanks for the Vamp Diaries input! I find YA not rough enough for me, so I think I'll pass since I have so many others I'd rather read!

    Rebecca, I left a post with the club info on your blog :)


Please take a minute to leave a comment. Good or bad I always read them : ) and respond.
