Origins - Julie Plec, L.J. Smith, Kevin Williamson

Books ARE better than their television counterparts and this is a certified fact...with the only exception being the Vampire Diaries. Why? Well, I watched the show before I read the books and I thought, "The show is so so good...the books must be INCREDIBLE!" I started reading and I realized that the two were completely opposite except for a few basics. Even Elena's personality and looks were not the same. More importantly, the story started to get weird after the first four books but I managed to read the next three because I am a Delena fan and craved more moments. After that, the story got boring and stupid and dragged out...I couldn't go on any more. On the other hand, the show is fast-paced, thrilling, exciting and entertaining alongwith everything I expected from the books. Coming to the book I'm posting about, Stefan's Diaries follow the show's storyline thus these books are worthy of praise by default. I really enjoyed reading this and I could picture the amazing cast in my head for the characters! I am so excited for the second book which I'll start as soon as I'm done with this review! :-)
