I am excited to get Vampire Diaries to start reading!

I have been reading the House of Night series by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast (there is quite a few, i think 6 or 7 now?)
The Blue Bloods Series (the 4th one just came outby Melissa De La Cruz.
The Immortals series by Alyson Noel. The first one is Evermore and the second in the series BlueMoon.

Not to do with vampires but still immortals and a fun read. It has been keeping me happy in my vampire kick!

If you are asking what the "Souther Vampire Mysteries" are they are the "TrueBlood" books.

I watch the show, but I definitely want to read the books!

I like the Vampire Diaries tv show better than the books. I'm almost done with the second one.

I've read the whole SS series they are all so much fun to read. I've also read a few of her other books, Grave Sight (really interesting, no vampires), and Last Scene Alive (also no vampires). They are both from two different series that she has written.

If you like the vampire stories, Anne Rice's Lestat(Interview with a Vampire) is a strong contender. But do check out The Mummy by her, it's quite a story. The Mayfair witch series (The Witching Hour is the first) is also really good and ties into the Vampire chronicles later in the series.

Sorry didn't mean to go on. I guess you can tell I really like to read.

We all grow into the beautiful person that we're supposed to be. Some earlier, some later.

Yeah I know what you mean. The Vampire Diaries came out in the mid 90's. I would like to read some Anne Rice as well. I have both Wuthering Heights and Pride and Prejudice but I haven't got to start reading yet.

Are the other Charlaine Harris books as good as the SS novels? I am only about 3/4 of the way through "Living Dead in Dallas."

I started reading Anne Rice right after high school, great if you love the dark and brooding characters. I started reading the Sookie Stackhouse books before Twilight was even out, the sheer humor in those has made me a big Charlaine Harris fan. But Twilight was something completely different to me. The emotional content of the characters really pulled me in. I'm just afraid that the other books are going to be trying too hard to get that same feel. You know, same story different names. I'll give them a try though.

I thought the same thing, but now I am addicted to the Southern Vampire mysteries and the Vampire Diaries are okay, but not as good any Twilight by any means!

Love Wuthering Heights and Pride and Prejudice. I haven't wanted to read the other vampire novels for fear they would fail in comparison to Twilight. I love to read though, so I'd give the Vampire Diaries a shot.

It's a parody. Not the one I was looking for, but it looks funny.
