Vampire Diaries - the Prequel(s)

Exciting news from The Bookseller today - more Vampire Diaries books, with a twist:

...Hodder Children’s Books is to publish three new titles in L J Smith’s Vampire Diaries series, which is currently being televised on ITV2 in the UK.

The new books by L J Smith will be prequels to the original books and will be called Vampire Diaries: ­Stefan’s Diaries.

  1. Hmmmm, cashing in on Vampire Academy's success much? I don't know, prequels aren't all that much fun if you ask me, since you pretty much know the skeleton of the story already ... at least, I'm guessing Stefan's Diaries will be about Katherine this and Katherine that ... he's such a Mope-saurus ... I'd rather read Damon's Diaries :D They'd be bound to be filled with blood and gore and action and excitement! Stefan's just going to be morose the entire time.

  2. Oh no! Vampire Diaries are my least favourite series (I find them almost literally unreadable) but that won't stop me from buying the prequels for our YA collection.

  3. I love the idea! Stefan couldn't have always been "morose". There had to have been a time when Stefan was fun and upbeat. I can't wait for the new books!

  4. These are prequels to the TV series. Not the original 4 books.
