    LJ Smith and soulmates

    I started off reading the vampire diaries and ABSOLUTLY fell in love with LJs writting! no matter how much i wanted to i couldn't stop reading and i was hooked on her every word. i wanted to read more of her other books and that's when i found Night World and even though they're things i would usally pick up at first glance, i saw the name and KNEW i had to have it. then i read this. It was one THE most amazing books i've read. I kinda wish she would of stayed with Nick, but that's probably because, in my opinion, spent more time describing him instead of Adam, but him and Cassie were trying to stay away from each other so i understand the difficulty. I also seem to notice that the author likes the idea of soul mates, i wonder if in the Vampire Diaries Stephan and Elena were soulmates?

    Glad to see it reprinted.

    I first read The Secret Circle back in 2001 or so when I first got into L.J. Smith. I have to admit, when I first read the series, I thought the book and plot was somewhat lacking and boring, but that has definitely changed as soon as I bought the reprinted versions as my views on it has changed. It's getting close to becoming more of my favorite L.J. Smith series alongside Night World and Forbidden Game.

    I highly recommend reading these books.

    This was a very enjoyable book. There was a TV program based on this book. It was totally butchered in the program, several favorite characters were left out.

    I enjoyed the second book much better than the first one. Now that the first had set the pace, this one got to be filled with many of the action moments, which I enjoyed immensely. One thing that hasn’t changed since book 1 is its predictability. I could guess the skull’s relationship to Cassie by the end of the first book, and it is obvious she will be voted leader and will fix everything (she is, after all, the protagonist). At the end of the day, I like the message this book sends to girls, but plot and narration have a lot more work to do if they want to reach out to a wider audience. With that said, the book series and its author has its own set of fans, and I totally respect and support that.

    I borrowed this book from the library to read and post an honest review.

    Great Book

    I loved this book but the ending ticked me off. I never really liked Adam but i loved Nick. I wish she'd ended up with him instead, but of course that wouldnt happen because she was ment for Adam *blah*. Overall it was a great book though. I actually liked the main character unlike some other series ive read were the main character is stuck up and thinks to much of herself. She was actually relatable, and seemed to be developed well throughout the story.

    a great ending

    i love this series. it had a great ending although i would have liked that it had more to it . cause in the end cassie becomes the leader of the coven and her and adam end up together there could have been a little more to than that. but other than that it was a wonderful story and i wish l.j.smith would continue it.

    L.J. Smith ROCKS!!!

    The first book of the Secret Circle was great, and I can't wait to read this one. I was to see if Faye is going to end up being the one who caused the murders, and what will happen between Cassie and Adam, and if Diana will find out about them. I'll be counting down the day til this comes out!

    Good Book/Series, But Was Expecting Different Cover

    The picture shows the original cover, so that was what I was expecting. But instead I received the new cover from when they reprinted recently. Other than that, I'm very happy with it. Love the series and the TV show. Team Cassie and Adam ;P <3
