The original books were ok, very different from the series though. Then the network bought the rights and a lot of the new books coming out are NOT by LJ Smith (original author, also wrote the Secret Circle books which they made a horrible show out of).

I have not read anything past the original four books.

I read the books. They're pretty good if you like teen stuff.

I couldn't even get through the pilot episode on TV. I kept asking "When is something good gonna happen?"

OMG I loathed the books. I read them before the show came out...or I tried to, I couldn't finish the first one.

The Elena character from the books is vapid, narcissistic, and a bitch.

Seriously she goes after Stefan simply cause he is the only guy in school who doesn't seem to want her.

I didn't make it through the first book either. I found the writing to be awful. Easily comparable to the short stories my junior high kids were writing. In some cases, my seventh graders did a better job.

I like LJ Smith a lot, but yeah this was her worst series. Love Secret Circle though.

Of course it is pure fluff, but nothing wrong with that!
