Welcome to my humble blog. If you're here looking for a bunch of insanely boring posts about my daily habits and what I had for breakfast this morning, then you are out of luck. However, if you like to read and want to look over reviews for books before you buy them, this is the place to be.

The Vampire Diaries- The Return: Shadow Souls

                    L.J. Smith's Vampire Diaries series is a perfect remedy for the vampiritis that's been going around. However, the novels don't exactly follow the original vampire rules; you know, burnt by sunlight, killed only by wooden stakes, invincible... the list could go on, but I think I'll stop there. The only rule that she follows is the wooden stake thing, except that, unlike most vampire books, she offers an explanation. Apparently, there is a chemical in trees that is super-toxic to vampires. I'm repeating the word "vampire" a lot, maybe there are synonyms...
    Nope, none that aren't offensive, and I wouldn't want that big guy, Sage coming after me. ANyway, this yarn is about a girl named Elena Gilbert, who died twice in the previous book, one I have yet to read, and is trying to decide between two brothers, Damon and Stefan, who happen to be vampires. Personally, I am rooting for Damon, but things aren't looking so good for him, because Stefan is Elena's soulmate. *Sigh* So, Stefan is trapped in the Dark Dimension, and Damon is the only one who can get her there. With the help of Elena's two best friends, Bonnie and Meredith, and another vampire, Sage, who also brings the help of his huge dog and hawk, they go to the Dark Dimension. And if they make it back, well I'm not giving anything away. This is a book review, not a book report.
