The Vampire Diaries - Stephan's Diaries
I have a teenage daughter obsessed with The Vampire Diaries, so we decided to read the series over the Christmas break. LJ Smith's characters are intriguing, but the difference between book Elena and T.V. show Elena is like night and day. The main male characters are probably what keep the teens grabbing up the series. Stephan is the good boy and Damon is the bad boy. In his diaries, you see why Stephan struggles with himself and why Damon is out to make Stephan's life miserable. I think as long as writers keep romance in their vampire novels, teens will read them. I give this book 3 stars, but the series 4 stars.
