Considering that on the surface this series seems to be just another cheesy vampire romance story (yes, they existed well before the garbage of Twilight), it actually has quite a bit more hiding in the story to unpack. Most vampire stories deal at least somewhat with themes around the prey-hunter dynamic, going back to humanity's primeval fear of predators and darkness, and Smith definitely engages with these tropes, but she does so in a surprising way. In Damon's character we are presented with the predatory vampire in a typical sense, but Stefan is starkly different in his engagement with his vampiric powers. He's not the first "troubled" vampire, but to an extent Smith's treatment of him in a romantic sense is what gives the story its tension and sets up a lot of the coming drama. Yet where Smith really differs is in his presentation of her female characters - especially Elena. She may be the main focus of Stefan's (and therefore Damon's) obsession as the doppelganger of their long lost Katherine, but she is anything but a damsel to be taken advantage of. The story is told from her point of view predominantly, and she makes it clear that when she wants something she goes out and gets it and she refuses to be daunted in the face of adversity. Of course, she's still a dumb teenage girl, and is far different than the more mature and down to earth Elena from the tv series adaptation, but she's a heck of a lot more interesting (and inspiring) than certain other vampire obsessed women. It's also good to know that even in 1991 (what?! I know) that we had better role models for supernatural/paranormal romances (even tough the stories are still slightly problematic) ( )

This was really not great. It was very easy to read, however, so I persisted.

Interesting how the book and tv show differ. Had a hard time not picturing the actors while reading it. It was also a super fast read. ( )

#1 The Awakening - ★★★★★
#2 The Struggle - Review Coming Soon!

I had The Awakening and the Struggle (the first and second books from the Vampire Diaries series) on my shelf for years.

When I say years, I mean it. It all started when I was in high-school, around 6 years ago, and I was in love with the Vampire Diaries TV Show. When I found out there are books as well, I begged my mum to buy them for me. And once I had them, I never got to read them, because teenage logic...

I recently noticed the Vampire Diaries books sitting on my shelf, forgotten, and I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to read it in October, because of the whole spooky vibe. So there it is now - even thought the wheel didn't choose it, I did, because it deserved the attention!

Elena Gilbert is a popular girl in high-school and she always gets what she wants. Boys want to be with her, girls hate her, or want to be her best friends. And when this new boy Stefan comes into town, all mysterious, Elena wants him. But Stefan is hiding a deadly secret that Elena might now be ready for just yet. And her life, as well as the life of everyone living in Fell's Church is in grave danger... Elena finds herself between two brothers - one who came for a new life, and the other, who came for revenge...

Reading this book, while already knowing what the plot it, I thought I found find it boring. But no. I still enjoyed every single page of it, and I still devoured this book in one day.

From the first chapter, this book is intense and captures your attention. It is written in third person, but it also contains diary entries that belong to Elena and capture her deepest thoughts that she doesn't dare share with anyone else.

I loved Elena!

Her character is exactly what I was expected and what I have known to love - brave and fierce, and also willing to sacrifice her own happiness and safety for the people she loves the most.

Elena's friends, Meredith and Bonnie are the friends every girl needs. Funny and caring. A few pages in, and you will get to love them too.

Stefan - the mysterious new guy in school. The guy that tries to stay away from the girl he really wants because he's a danger to her. A little bit of Twilight vibes, but we can get past that. Because there is one thing that Twilight didn't have, that you can find reading The Vampire Diaries...


Even though we only get a glimpse of him in this book, we can feel his presence throughout the whole book. We can feel his connection with Elena, as weird and spooky as it may be. All that danger that he carries with him, we all want to see whether there's anything good in him at all. His story is the most intriguing one, I think. His hunger for revenge makes you really understand both sides of the story and choose a side for yourself.

So, are you team Stefan, or team Damon?

I loved reading this - it was an amazing experience and it reminded me of my high-school days, of those innocent happy memories. My teenage life didn't include vampires, but hey - it was still awesome!

Pick the Vampire Diaries up if you love Young Adult spooky books, if you loved Twilight and if you love vampire, love and mystery stories in general.
