Vampire Diaries ReRead Vol. One: First up...The Awakening





So kind of like an episode rewatch, instead we're rereading the books.
This week is CHAPTER ONE to FOUR. Reread and discuss here.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
When the car came to a stop, the door opened, and
they glimpsed the driver."Oh, my God," Caroline
whispered."You can say that again," breathed Bonnie.
From where she stood, Elena could see he had a
lean, flat-muscled body. Faded jeans he probably
had to peel off at night, tight T-shirt, and a leather
jacket of unusual cut. His hair was wavy—and dark.
He wasn't tall, though. Just average height.

CHARACTER OF THE WEEK
Elena Gilbert

Cool idea But that quote isn't in the first four chapters, is it? Because I just read that book and I don't remember it...

To be honest, I find Elena incredibly annoying. I sincerely hope that she won't be this self-centered in the series. Anybody else have this feeling?

Great thread Kristy. Gives us something to discuss as we wait for the series. Now, I'm tempted to open my book.

Aww I dont have time to do a reread right now but I recently read the books so I remember enough
I find Elena quite self centered too, and its impressive how this manages to stick with her throughout the series Im glad the show is apparently going in a different direction

It seems like Elena in the show won't be self-centered, which is good b\c I didn't like how Elena in the book just felt so entitled to every guy in school.

yeah like when Stefan didn't pay attention to her, she was like.."OMG. HE DIDN'T LOOK AT ME. omg I must have him" really Elena, the guys didn't play attention to you so you have to have him?

I never could warm to Elena in the books, even after everything she's still all about herself. I hope the tv series changes that or else we'll have another Mary Sue on our hands and lord knows we've got enough of those in vampire related shows/movies.

Cool idea. I would reread the first book but my sisters have my VD books.

I liked Elena in the books, but she annoyed me a little in the first book.

jen I got confused on what book I've got. I've got the Nightfall. I thought it was the Awakening.
