I borrowed The Vampire Diaries DVD from Netflix for about 7 months now. But I was immersed in another series (Smallville). I just sat on this DVD until this week when I have so many exams, I have to watch a new series!

I listened to the audio book before watching the show because it's there in my digital checkout from my local library. I wanted the background for the series. I end up liking the story, but not sure if I am really love it. I find the story slow, and have to stop a few times as it was making me drowsy. I don't know if it's the story or the reader. I am used to energetic reader like Dick Hill of Lee Child's Jack Reacher series.

This story is good in its own way. It's probably not going to be 'super'-anything, but it's fun series to watch on TV.

I finished 3 episodes of season 1. I think I will keep on watching. The actors are beautiful and attractive, and the story compelling enough.

Summary:
Set during the Civil War, against a backdrop of grand estates, unimaginable riches, and deadly secrets, three teenagers in Mystic Falls, Virginia enter a torrid love triangle that will span eternity.

Brothers Stefan and Damon Salvatore are inseparable until they meet Katherine, a stunning, mysterious woman who turns their world upside down. Siblings turned rivals, the Salvatores compete for Katherine's affection, only to discover that her sumptuous silk dresses and glittering gems hide a terrible secret: Katherine is a vampire. And she is intent on turning them into vampires so they can live together-forever.

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.
