Book Description

A new beginning . . .

When Stefan Salvatore's first love turned him into a vampire, his world—and his soul—were destroyed. Now he and his brother, Damon, must flee their hometown, where they risk being discovered . . . and killed.

The brothers head to New Orleans, looking for safe haven. But the city is more dangerous than they ever imagined, full of other vampires—and vampire hunters. Will Stefan's eternal life be forever damned?

Based on the popular CW TV show inspired by the bestselling novels, Stefan's Diaries reveals the truth about what really happened between Stefan, Damon, and Katherine—and how the Vampire Diaries love triangle began.

About the Author

L. J. Smith has written a number of bestselling books and series for young adults, including The Vampire Diaries (now a hit TV show), The Secret Circle, The Forbidden Game, Night World, and the #1 New York Times bestselling Dark Visions. She is happiest sitting by a crackling fire in a cabin in Point Reyes, California, or walking the beaches that surround that area.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book January 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love the Vampire Diaries TV series and have already read Origins. I couldn't wait for this book to come out and I was not disappointed. I read this book in 2 days. I find it facinating the story that is unfolding between Damon and Stefan. The struggles that they are going through and what is shaping the characters that we have seen on TV. The show makes so much more sense after reading these two books.

I highly recommend this book to anyone that is a fan of the Vampire Diaries TV series. I will most certainly buy Cravings when it comes out in the next few months.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally Vampire Diaries is back on track... January 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I said in my review of Shadow Souls that it was time for L.J. Smith to hand over The Vampire Diaries series to someone else and work on an other series. I meant it in the best possible way, I like her books and want those that have her name on them to be good and to continue to be published. It feels like she's going off track and maybe her heart just isn't in this series anymore. Her other stuff is dying for some attention where as people working on this series on tv are doing a good job with saving it in my eyes. This book / line in the series is a good example of that. With the newer "Return" line of the series (which she is writing) I feel like I am reading because I have some sick devotion to the series, a "well I have to know what happens to the characters I love" thing.. But this (which she isn't writing) well I sincerely can't get enough.

It's a darker and grittier story than the books usually have been but very much in line with the television show. They are newly made. Loving the fact that they'll be young and beautiful and powerful forever. Hating it. Feeling betrayed. Wanting to kill kill kill. And not wanting to, preferring to die themselves. Oh wait, that's just Damon.

Yes, we learn how they change. How they become who they are as we see them today (again I cannot say this enough - this particular series is clearly meant for fans of the tv show but works for fans of the main book series too). The plot of this one is simple - the boys have been run out of town for being demons. Damon wants to die, resenting what Stefan has made him, resents the loss of Katherine, is angry, depressed, sulking, etc. Stefan, however, is enjoying his new life.

I've read "The vampire Diaries: Stefan'Diaries#1" and I enjoyed it! I wanted to know more about and was hungry for more! Added to that, it helps me going on learning and training English because I'm French. It's a very good product! Have a lot of fun!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great companion for hardcore TVD fans! May 22, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed Bloodlust a lot! It begins two weeks after Stefan and Damon become vampires. Stefan is feeding on the local girls he used to be friends with, and Damon refuses to eat anything. It was really interesting to see Damon being the "good" vampire. On the show he acts like he doesn't care about anyone, or anything, but that isn't true. He just does not let people see his insecurities. One scene in Bloodlust really struck me as ironic:
"Vampires kill. It's what we do brother," I said calmly, my gaze locking on Damon's blue eyes.
"It's what you do," he said. "Not me, Never me." (p. 46)
For anyone who watches the show, Damon and Stefan are the opposite of what they say right here. Damon is the monster who doesn't care who he hurts, and Stefan is the brooding, emo one, who will only eat deers and squirrels.

In Bloodlust, Stefan and Damon head to New Orleans where Stefan meets his BFF Lexi!!!! I was so excited to learn how they became friends. Ever since Lexi was staked by Damon in season 1, I wanted to learn more about her, and be able to spend more time with Lexi and Stefan together!

In Bloodlust we learn how and why this switch between the brothers occurred. I would recommend this book to any hardcore Vampire Diaries fan. You don't really need to read the first volume, unless you want too, but it isn't a necessity if you know the TV show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delena 4 life April 22, 2011
After I read this book and LJ SMith's series books I still come to the same conclusion.....That I want Damon and Elena together...I just feel sooo sorry for Damon and all the crap he has been through...He deserves some happiness......Stefan is not a bad guy but he makes some bad decisions because he cares too much......Like he loved Katherines soooo much and then in the end he ended up ranting her out (bad decision) and then he fell for Callie(bad decision) while her father tortured Damon....SO if Damon in the end ends up with Elena it will not hurt my feelings one bit......Stefan has had so many chances at love and whereas Damon's never loved him back nor excepted him for the good man he once was.........So I'm Team Delena all the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable reading October 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed reading the books and reading is fast on the kindle! I have done a review on the 1st book, on the series it just hints around what the brothers did after they be come vampires. I think that's why I do like the diary of because it tells of Stephan adventures and sometime involving Damon. Rather than just guess what they may have done or seen before they return to Mystic Falls in this time period.

More About the Author

Lisa Jane Smith is the New York Times #1 Bestselling author of The Vampire Diaries, The Secret Circle, The Forbidden Game, Dark Visions, Wildworld and Night World series. She has written over two dozen books for children and young adults, and has enjoyed writing every one of them. She lives in the Bay Area of California, with a backyard that is full of flowers, which she adores, especially with many different shades of roses.

She loves to visit a friend's little cabin in the Point Reyes National Seashore area, which has lots of trees, lots of animals, lots of beaches to walk on, and lots of places to hike. Once, while hiking, she saw a snow-white buck which allowed her to follow it nearly half a mile. She also likes to collect things: angels (they remind her of her late mother), tiny boxes from different countries or of fanciful shape, nineteenth century children's literature, and books about quantum physics--especially about the mystery of the dark energy in the universe. A militant optimist, she is also part of the Velociraptor Sisterhood (a fancy way of saying that she likes to read, write and discuss books with strong female characters), and she has traveled extensively in Europe and the Far East. The two countries she loves to visit most are Great Britain, with its historic monuments and amazing country landscapes, and Japan, with its bustling urban life and exquisite mountain scenery.

Her favorite current writer is Terry Pratchett, the author of the Discworld series, for its wild and witty satires on life, death, war, love, assassins, coppers, and Australia. Her favorite classical writer is Jane Austen. Her favorite poets are Robert Frost and Emily Dickinson. Her favorite movies are The Seven Samurai and Avatar (analyze that!). She doesn't have a favorite TV show, because she doesn't have time to watch TV (and only owns one for playing movies).

Her favorite people are her readers, each of whom she cherishes with deep and lasting affection.
