My favorite thing about Vampire Diaries.. hmmm.. I haven't read the books yet (slacker!) but as far as the show goes.. I love the triangle with Elena, Stefan, and Damon. And Damon is definitely my favorite. <3

Jenn @ Under the Covers said...

I don't really have a favorite thing about the Vampire Diaries because it's all awesome, but my favorite character is Damon, who doesn't like a bad boy?

Thanks for the great giveaway and happy early birthday!!

anaavu said...

Oh wow your contacts over at Hachette are FABULOUS! I want to give them a hug ;)

Ya know, I've never read the Vamp Diaries but I sure as heck watch it every week! I'm super addicted! Most of all, I like to watch the brothers' sarcastic humor-it totally brightens my day. (Well that and their hotness, but that's obvioso. I love Damon for that same reason. He keeps his cool under the worst of circumstances and makes a snarky comment and gives one of those swoon-worthy smiles of his LOL!

Thanks for this awesome giveaway ! :D

Inessa said...

Sorry, I forgot to answer the questions ! Stefan is my favorite character! I love him! But Damon is cute too. The thing I like in TVD is the fact that it's very addictive! It's my favorite series, I can't stay a week without seeing it!

AJ said...

My favorite thing about the series is the surprising twists and that its very addictive! My character is Damon because he's soooo hot!

Na said...

I love the love triangle. I first read the series and The Secret Circle when it was originally published and it was one of my first paranormal books. I'm glad to see it re-issued :) Stefan is one of my favorite character because he's dark and yet light.

Hilda said...

I love the surprises in the story! I only watch the show though lol. My favorite character probably Damon. Thank you for this amazing giveaway!

yoits0111 said...

marybelle said...

Flame:) said...

Wow thanks for the giveaway! :) Hmm, I haven't read the books yet (I know, I know, I'm missing out on a lot!), but I've heard amazing things about it! :) Put that together with the fact that L.J. Smith wrote The Forbidden Game, which is my fav YA of all time, and I just know I have to read it! And there's romance!!! :D and hot vamps:) what's not to love?

elin said...

My fav thing about this series is that it's about VAMPIRES! I love Damon!!!!

Bee said...

Eeeee! I'm a HUGE fan of the show but I never got the chance to read the books.

Thanks for the opportunity :)

Bee said...

Oh, my favourite thing about The Vampire Diaries (the show, I mean, since I haven't read the books) is that inspite of the fact that almost all the characters are supernatural beings, there's an inherent humanity somewhere in there - that tells us that they aren't much different from us. I think the characters are some of the best ones I've come across - well-rounded, flawed and more significantly, real.

My favourites are Caroline and Tyler.

Maidenveil said...

Damon! He's a complicated character.

Dovile said...

My favorite thing about the Vampire Diaries is the love triangle, and my favorite character is Damon.

Sayomay said...

honestly i havent read the books or seen the show! My friends how been getting on to me about watching or at least reading the seires! :D

Oona said...

I love Damon and I also like Bonnie. I also love Damon in the tv-series. It really sucks that I haven't been able to read all the book yet, only the five first ones.

Cayce said...

My favorite is Damon!!!! :P
I haven't read the books, only watching the show, so it would be great to win them :)
Thank you so much for the wonderful giveaway!

Rose said...

I waited for a chance to read these book.. (:
Thank you for this giveaway and for making it international!

My favorite character is Caroline. I like about the series that once you think "everything will be okay now" and find out it's not. LOL

HeroineAddict said...

Well, I've only ever seen the television show, but my favourite character is probably Stefan...though I also love Caroline!

SacredmOOn said...

I haven't yet read this series. I'm working on it though. Thank you for the chance to win!

Thanks for the great giveaway!!!

Rica said...

i love the romance and action of TVD and my favorite character is Damon! :D

Jill Elizabeth said...

I have to admit - Damon is, by far, my favorite... There's just something so deliciously evil and yet still somehow redeemable about him! Thanks for the giveaway...

TheJay2xA said...

favorite thing about TVD is that it's very addicting! I'm Team Vampire and I definitely love the lore that TVD portrays. My favorite character would be Elena Gilbert played by the most awesome Nina Dobrev! love her to death, she's just gorgeous ♥

Thanks for the chance of winning the series~

Maegan Morin said...

My favorite part about the vampire diaries is damon! I liked him long before ian somerhalder played him on tv... but now he's better lol

Erica Nicholas said...

I honestly have no idea, because I've never read it! I've also never watched the tv show. I told myself I'd read the books first, then catch up on watching it.

~April~ said...

I am a huge fan of the show but have not gotten to read the books yet... I love them all in the show though... :-)

Arianne Cruz said...

My favorite is when Elena turned Vampire... I also love her and Damon as usual :)

DANIELA said...

glass said...

Great giveaway Love the show!:)

Emily @ Falling For YA said...

I have never read the books but I have watched the first season of the show! My favorite character is Catherine because she is pretty evil but also kind of similar to Elena! Blows my mind!

SarahSerenity said...

Happy early Birthday! :)
My favourite thing about VD..Ive only read the first book but ive watched the show and i love all the plot lines! And Damon is my favourite character! Besides being swoon worthy he's the most interesting to me.

Julie W said...

My favorite thing about TVD is Damon!!! I love my bad boy vampire :) I've never read the books, but I've watched the series and love it! I'd really like to read these books so I would know if the show follows the book or not!

VampedChik said...

I've just recently started watching it and Damon is definitely swoon worthy. :) I would love to read the books. Thanks for the contest!

Steph said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I've only watched the first and part of the second season - haven't read any books yet. I need to catch up! So far, I think my favorite character would be Stefan. I love anything to do with vampires, so this fits the bill!

Lisa Richards/alterlisa said...

Stefan is my fav character and I love anything vampiric!

IdentitySeeker said...

My favourite thing about this series is Stefan! Oh and Jeremy:) But seriously, I've never understood why most of my friends go crazy over Damon, because Stefan was my guy from the very beginning. I've read all the books and I watch each episode as soon as it's aired and my heart just skips a beat every time Stefan's face pops up on screen- even now that he's turned bad. Good guy or bad guy- I'll always be Team Stefan!:)

Thank you for this generous giveaway!:)

Sherry86 said...

I lvoe so Much the love triangle between the Salvatore brothers and Elena. I know that love is something dangerous sometimes.
My fav character is surely Damon. His personality is so interesting.

kristina shields said...

Alicia0605 said...

Damon because he is the sexy bad boy!!

FireStarBooks said...

I love the Vampire Diarie because of the characters. My favourite character got to be Damon. hmmm...that boy! <3 Bad and sexy!

Book Sake said...

I don't have the Vampire Diaries books, so I can't say what I do/don't like about them. On the show I love Stefan - being bad or good - I don't care! I hate how they live in this little town but always have some huge event going on. I'd be very tired if I lived there!!
- Jessica @ Book Sake

jay.uppal said...

they are awesome and it has to be stefan

Mockingjay said...

Have fun for your birthday! :) We should compare our presents!;D

AlexSarahLouise said...

I love everything about VD ! :) especially Damon! he has so many different sides to him .... :)

Thanks for the giveaway ! :)

.Ambur. said...

My favourite thing about the Vampire Diaries is also my favourite character...Damon! I also love how Caroline's changed from the books to the show. She's so awesome on the show. :D

S.E. Lane said...

I love the Vampire Diaries! My favorite thing about the books (and the show) is the crazy way they weave all their backstories and mysteries together from episode to episode - and book to book. My favorite character is Damon, of course. But i also find Elijah very cool. ;)

Lindsay W. said...

I find it immensely challenging to answer what my favorite thing about TVD is, nonetheless, I absolutely love both the book series and the show, so I'll give it my best shot. My favorite thing about the books is the chemistry between Elena and Damon. They have a connection that can't be explained and their attraction to one another is so tense and mysterious and when they're in a scene together I'm glued to the book. The the thing I didn't like about the books was early in the series Elena's character was too stuck-up. Even after her parent's death, she was still too much of a possessive queen bee and that attitude just really wasn't attractive. I am thankful that in the show, Elena doesn't portray that at all. My favorite character in both the book and the show is Damon, because despite everything he's been through he still has a great sense of humanity. When he discovered the truth about Katherine, he was heartbroken and he didn't turn off his humanity and he fell in love with Elena. He knows that it's always going to be the 'Elena and Stefan' show, but he has a passionate hope and it makes him the strongest, and my favorite, character. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

Dani said...

My favorite thing it's that they are traditional vampires.And (of couse!) I love the love story (I'm a sucker for romance even if envolves a little of death).
My favorite caracter is Stefan and the evil Katerina (also i really like the sound of the name Katerina, i'm from Chile so it doesn't sound that foreign but still it's so cool in my spanish ears)

BlogGirl said...

I love it so much because it's a supernatural show. There's a vampire, werewolf and a witch. Complete package. LoL. Plus it's super exciting every episode. I love Damon, rude but sweet and hot. :)))

Clint Andrew said...

My favorite thing about The Vampire Diaries is that the story is so unpredictable. I'm always excited to watch incoming episodes. My favourite character is Caroline because she's so strong, cool and lovely.

Charissa Jackson said...

I love everything about the show, the story is just amazing. I haven't gotten to read the books yet, but they are on my list. I think Damon is my favorite right now, it changes a lot. He is just so hot though.

books first love said...

The favourite thing: hey the show is about vampires :)and I love vampires. My favourite character is Daemon because is funny, interesting and hot.

layoffthebooks said...

I haven't read any of the new Vampire Diary books. I loved the old ones, but I'm not sure if they follow the same plot, or if the new books follow the tv show. elena is my fave character.

Happy Birthday!
