Today I am hosting a guest post written by my 13 year old niece Rosie who writes her own blog. When Warner Brothers asked me to review Vampire Diaries in light of the upcoming new season, I knew with Dallas on my hands it would be difficult to get them both done in time so I asked Rosie. She hadn’t watched them before but agreed to do it anyway, possibly a bit worried her aunt was going to give her something really weird to watch.
The email I got back said
I have finished the review!!!! It is honestly one of my favourite tv shows ever now and i am totally buying the books and other seasons! Can i post this review on my blog as well or not? I totally dont mind either way!
Thanks for season 1 xxx
Yes a very excited teenager I think you’ll agree, if you are also wondering what all the hype is about – read on for Rosie’s review, she also reviews books, she likes to cook and loves painting her nails, take a look at her blog and you’ll see My Head and Me
The Vampire Diaries, a review by Rosie
This is the smash hit series, The Vampire Diaries from ITV 2 on DVD. When I first got the DVD I decided to watch it as a treat, just the first episode for tonight then maybe tomorrow, another episode to make the Dvds last longer. That did not happen! Let’s just say they lasted about 4 nights with me watching them! Even in the first minute you get gripped!
At the beginning you might think it is your normal ‘Edward and Bella’ romance and it might be just like Twilight but no, it’s so much more. As you watch you discover a whole new take on vampires which, I have to say, is exciting!
This is a great movie for any teenager. There is so much suspense and the suspension is great! I personally love the moments when you can tell something bad is going to happen like a vampire coming to hunt and feed! The whole atmosphere is so amazingly created and it was truly addictive.
As soon as the first episode was over I was hungry for more, so I simply pressed play! That is the beauty of having the whole season on Dvd. The fact you can just press play and watch episode after episode, without having to wait a whole week for the next instalment is fantastic, especially if you are like me and just can’t wait a week for it!
The characters are played so well, it just makes the episodes more realistic and believable. I have to say, one of the main brothers (Damon Salvatore) is very, very(!!) fit with his dark, mysterious looks and charms!
As a lover of fashion, I love when there are moments when the story goes back in time and you can see the late 19th century dresses which are amazingly pretty and make me wish I owned a dress like that!
I realised they have made 3 seasons and season 4 is due to come out in October! I am so excited! I hope to see more romance and lots more bloodsucking vampires! I cannot say what else I would like to see as I have not yet finished the first season, let alone the others. I have one more episode left on season 1 which I will watch the night before I go back to school, as a treat… No wait that’s a lie I won’t be able to wait, I will have to watch it tonight, and when I am done I am straight off to eBay to buy season 2 box set and ALL the books in The Vampire Diaries series!
I can’t wait to sink my teeth into series 2!
