Vampire Diaries by Talia, Teen Blogger

What do you get when you have two vampire brothers who both love the same human girl? Well if you add some witches, a couple werewolves, a hybrid or two, and then toss in some evil vampires for good measure, well you end up with a pretty awesome story!

Vampire Diaries by L. J. Smith is a hit TV show based on a series of books.

The show revolves around Elena who finds herself surrounded by the unnatural. She's dating a vampire, her best friend is a witch and her friend is a werewolf. To make things more complicated for her, Stefan (Elena's vampire boyfriend) has a brother (Damon - he is also a vampire) who is in love with Elena.

 To top it off there are other vampires and mythical beings who want Elena dead...and will stop at nothing until she is.

 I won't tell you anymore because I don't want to give anything away, but I will say that it all makes for a super duper tv show! You will be on the edge of your seat during every episode with plenty of twists and turns that you won't have seen coming! (Well at least I didn't!)

The show doesn't follow the books too closely so you can read the books and still be surprised by the twists in the show.

Or,you can read the books based on the show.The Library also has DVD's of the first and second season.

So watch the show and read the books and then you can decide the big question... Which brother do you like better-Stefan or Damon?

Hint: the right answer starts with a D and ends with an amon ;-)

Team Damon all the way for me!)
