    Wait – they’re making a movie??

    OMG!

    And they cast Ian Somerholder??? *sigh* It’s all about the eyes. Okay, so it’s mostly about the eyes.

    I haven’t read these in years, but I used to be totally addicted to LJ Smith. That was before the resurgence/rise of paranormal/urban fantasy in both adult and YA fiction. Back when I was working in a bookstore, and one of my fellow employees kept trying to shelve LKH’s Anita Blake books in the YA section, with authors like LJ Smith, because all she saw was “Oh, vampires + vampire slayer = Buffy”. I doubt she would make the same mistake now. :)

    Clearly I have to read The Vampire Diaries immediately. But I find myself already approving this casting choice. Mmmmmmmm, Ian Somerhalder.

      The CW, huh? Well…it could still be good. Plus, I’d watch Ian playing a really hot anti-hero with smoking intensity any day. The rest of the cast? Who cares?

      Okay, so I care about Elena, too. And it would be nice to get good actors for everyone. But I’ll probably only really be watching Ian when he’s onscreen. :D

    Well, first of all, I didn’t even know that they were making a film about the series!!! KIs it a film, or tv show?
    And secondly, Oh My!!! Ian is just…wow…he’s got a face to die for!!! *fangirls*
    But you know what’s funny? Everytime I picture Balthazar, I imagine him as Ian or Nate (from Gossip Girl). lol

    This is so exciting! (I read the LJ Smith books when first published–back when I was a teen. I still love them because of a serious case of nostalgia.) I can’t wait to see what they do with the material.

    This is, after all, not only the network of Buffy, but also of the Winchester Brothers.

    OMG! I read these books when they first came out. That makes me old, I guess. Haha. Sort of. I had no clue they were making a show of this. Yay! I am so excited. And Ian as Damon? Yummy!!! Cant wait!
