I just finished watching the series premiere of The Vampire Diaries. Let me preface this post by saying, I loved Ian Somerhalder in Lost. Boone was one of my favorite characters and I was sad to see him go.

Did anyone else watch this? I know it premiered last week, but I did the whole DVR thing and just watched it on Tuesday night. I love this show. I would like to give respect where respect is due, this series is based on a series of books by L.J. Smith called, what else, The Vampire Diaries, and while I did think I might want to pick these books up, cause the show is so totally awesome, I think I'm going to pass. I'm already reading comments from readers of the books, that while the show is great, they changed a few characters, a few characteristics to make it work for TV. I hate it when they do that even if it works, so I'm just gonna go with, I love this show!

SO! In honor of The Vampire Diaries, I'm give you some of my favorite vampires. Some new, some not so new, but favorites nonetheless. . .


  1. I do not watch The Vampire Diaries, but omg your men are super hot... and I loving up some of these vampires... all of them actually!!! Jason and his yum-me abs... and Moonlight... OMG!!!!
    I hope you are having a great day my friend!

  2. I DVR'd it too :D Watched it the other night ... I thought it seemed good - need a few more episodes to make a final judgement though. Problem is, every time I get into a good Vamp show it gets cancelled so, I try not to get too excited ... look what happened to Moonlight, Kindred the Embraced etc.
    I'm thinking this one might stick around longer though as it's aimed at the Twilight & Supernatural audience. 'Course, if it's gonna get all 'sexy' I'm gonna wish it had a more mature cast but ... can't win 'em all.
    I've seen the books too but didn't read them because I knew the series was coming out and if I read a book BEFORE a movie, show, whatever - I HATE IT !!! Seriously, I pick the whole thing to pieces and criticize everything from actress haircolor to changes in scenes and age difference - you see where I'm going.
    If I wait awhile I won't have a problem reading the book. I know there will be differences but that's alright. To be honest, I's probably go get the first book now but I'm waiting for Stephanie's review over on Steph Su Reads. She does great book reviews on YA books of all genres.
    Oh, and yeah, the guys are 'to die for' hee hee - sorry, couldn't help myself !

  3. Cec, it's a good show, you should check into it. Maybe after the first season is over and we know it might stick around for two. Ban has a point, they usually cancel the vampire shows.

  4. Ban, "to die for" *snicker*.

    I'm with you, I may wait to read the books. Once I have the characters stuck in my head from the show it'll be easier to forgive the discrepancies.

  5. I'm a sucker for a sexy vampire! Watched the show, too. Really enjoyed it!

  6. Watched the 2nd episode last night. LOVING these characters. While Stefan is sexy and seductive and sexy, Damon, O M G! Yeah, he's my favorite. Is that wrong??

  7. If it is, then we can be wrong together!

  8. ooooooooooo yyyyyeeeeaaaaahhhhhh !!!!!
