Ah, what can I say? I’m a bias, diehard fan.Although I have to admit that the TV show was much better, the book isn’t so bad either. It started off lame, but kept getting better & better.It’s making me miss the TV show even more, I’m still devastated that they cancelled it SIX years ago (I know, I can’t seem to get over it).The story opens with sixteen-year old Cassie vacationing on Cape Cod. It’s a long way from her home in California. She saves a boy and his dog from four colle [...]

Okay, don't judge me but I did read this when the TV show started and it wasn't horrible. You have your basic tropes of the new girl in school suddenly finding herself interested in a mysterious popular group.Who discovers, surprise surprise, that she has special powers.And that her fate was entwined with her new best friend's boyfriend, who says the kind of cheesy things only a fiction character can get away with.Yes, it's all terribly cliché, but I'll admit that I had fun reading it. Even tho [...]

The Initiation The Secret Circle is definitely one of, if not my favorite series. It was one of the first young adult series I read, and I could just not get enough. And since a television adaptation of this awesome series is coming soon, I thought now was the perfect time to revisit this series. And what I found was spectacular, but also different than I remember it being the first time I read it.The Initiation does a good job setting up the story for the next two books in the Secret Circle ser [...]

Wow. That was…kind of incredibly stupid.I won't go into it. It was just stupid.I only read it because I absolutely adore the TV series its based on.The show is so much better than the book, in my opinion, which is saying something because the show isn't exactly a paragon of excellence.Okay, I'm going into it. Cassie was dumb. There were plenty of times when she could have stood up for herself and didn't. For example, when that guy on the beach grabbed her wrist, she could have said, "Get the h [...]

LAMESTORY.EVER.I honestly cannot believe how many good reviews this book has. It was downright pathetic and made me want to hit someone on multiple occations. Really, I don't even wish this on my worst enemy much was wrong with this one, its boring even to write it. I'll just enumerate stuff:1) Cassie "I have no personality whatsoever" Blake. She was bullied the entire novel and yet everyone kept going on about how she stood up for herself. Really? I must've missed that. But see, standing up for [...]

My favorite characters in this book would have to be Cassie, Diana. Cassie: is a shy and caring person who put others before herself. Diana: is the popular girl that is really sweet and cares about others and just like Cassie she likes helping others. She is the mean girl that everyone is scared of, who likes to try and have all the power over everyone, she’s a control freak. If this book was made into a movie I would have Jessica Alba as Adam, Kirsten Stewart as Cassie, Charlotte Arnold as Di [...]

Meh.Some good ideas here but they don't go anywhere. Sixteen year old Cassie is suddenly forced to move with her single mom to mom's home town -- somewhere Cassie has never been because mom and grandma have been estranged for 16 years.You think a family issue this major would be addressed in the story but it isn't. Cassie moves into an ancient house filled with antiques but she might as well be living alone with the lack of communication in the house.There's some business with the neighbors, all [...]

3.5 stars. Interesting and captivating series. The characters occasionally were a little juvenile for me, and it drove me crazy how WEAK Cassie was, but she finally came into her own and stood up for herself.

Did I think this book was the best book ever and that i am totally in love with it? nobut did I think it was horrible and should of never been published? no to that too.It wasn't a horrible book, but it wasn't completley amazing either. First of all lets go into characters:Cassie: Now, usually I don't mind the main characters being shy and stuff, but this was absoloutley rediculous! The girl is absoloutley spineless and lets anyone trample over her without even trying to defened herself. That wa [...]

I love the plot, I loved every bit of this book! I have read it so many times and love it more each time! but I agree with something but I am not gonna ruin it because its in the last book. Anyway, the story great, characters great. Cassie shy, pretty, confident and just down to earth. Adam strong, bold, confident, funny, loving and etc. Each of the characters are different from the others, Diana being the nice, kind one. Cassie being the confident yet fragile one. Adam being the strong bold swe [...]

3 stars Image above is one of the best witch movies ever. Can you tell I'm a sucker for witch stories? I'm not talking about Harry Potter while good is about controlled magic in schools purely for educational purposes and riding a train out to a mysterical castles. I'm talking about bad witches and teenagers who go to a real human school, the good old fashion kind. I admit that I finally decided to pick up The Secret Circle because the show on CW had already started and I wanted to read the book [...]

1/5 STARS!I brought the Secret Circle a long while after i finished reading the whole ( nearly) series of The Vampire Diaries. I'm like a HUGE fan of TVD, in fact those books got me into reading for my own pleasure. I thought of buying the Secret Circle book 1 after i watched the tv series. They stopped after season 1, and i was eager to know how it all ends. But, as it turns out, the books in the series are like a completely different planets. There are even some different characters!

Este es un libro perfecto para pasar un rato. Debo decir que hace varios meses vi la adaptación a la televisión de esta saga. Me pareció sumamente interesante. Pero perdí el hilo de la serie y no la seguí viendo. Esta madrugada, en medio de una noche de insomnio descubrí el pdf este libro en mi computadora y no me pude resistir a leerlo. Me encanta la manera en que L.J. Smith escribe. Simple, interesante y asombrosa a la vez. Toda la trama del libro es un poco confusa y te deja con mucha i [...]

(It's three minus.)I admit that the only reason I read this book is because I'd heard that the CW was going to make a TV series out of it and because, even though I can't exactly say that I liked Smith's Vampire Diaries series (the highest rating they ever got was a half-hearted 3, and, to my shame, I read all seven of them), what I can say is that the TV show based on those book is nothing short of fantastic. In fact, I don't think I could survive without my weekly dose of Damon. The guy is jus [...]

I can't figure it out. I picked up this book with mixed emotions, and it knocked my socks off. I can't figure out how she did it. The Secret Circle tells the story of Cassie Blake and all that happens when she moves with her mother back to her mother's hometown of New Salem to tend to her grandmother. I know what your thinkingunds pretty unremarkable, right? Wrong. This book was utterly addictive. When I finished this one I immediately went out and bought the next one (I only bought the ones act [...]

Reviewed by Cassie Beale for TeensReadTooL. J. Smith exceeds herself with the reissue of THE SECRET CIRCLE. Though some of her older books, especially THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, are a delight to read, THE SECRET CIRCLE is leagues ahead in not only writing skill but in plot and characterization, as well. The main character, Cassie (who coincidentally shares a first name with this reviewer), is likeable and easy to relate to as a plain, shy, sixteen-year-old girl. After moving to New Salem to live with [...]

So, I watched the TV show based on this book when it came on The CW a few years ago. I thought it was just okay, but I was kinda curious about the books after I read Darth J.'s review. After reading this first volume, I have to say I quite liked it. No, it's not great literature and yes, there is some bad insta-love, but it's a 90s YA novel. What do you expect? It's just good, cheesy entertainment and I had a lot of fun with it. It's one of those books that you read straight through without feel [...]

With a few murders taking place at her high school and the boy she likes being not-avelable her life is getting pretty exciting and dangerous.

The characterseven the "good" ones were just ridiculous, and plotI'm not super sure there was even one hidden in there anywhere. Plus Adamt exactly a swoon-worthy anything. The only one that might have potential is Nickbut I'll never find out. Exactly everything a good witch story shouldn't be villain magicndictive, jealous teenagers

My 1st encounter with LJ Smith wasn't a pleasant one. Most of the time when a book gets turned into some form of media - the end result is usually disasterous. So when I began to watch The Vampire Diaries, I automatically ran to the book store and purchased the first four books. That was a grandios mistake. I have never, EVER, perferred a media adaption over the book. NEVER.I read five chapters of LJ's first installment in The Vampire Diaries series, and just put it away. I have yet to get back [...]

I read this book only because it was on my shelf from my highschool days (not very long ago, but still), and found myself actually quite enjoying it by the end. By the infamous L.J. Smith, who everyone knows wrote the Vampire Diaries. Starts out pretty slow, but definitely gets into some of that teen romance we all secretly love. Based in a town called New Salem, run by a coven of ancient witches teenage children. This turns out to be a group of 11, who the main character Cassie turns out to be [...]

Oh man. This is embarrassing. I shouldn't even admit to have picked this book up. But, see, there's this show called "The Secret Circle" on the CW about these teen witches and I'm totally wrapped up in it (here, covers face with a pillow and contemplates whether or not to keep some things to herself.) I do understand that it's not exactly Chekhov but it's insanely addictive and surprisingly well acted. And I guess I was kind of curious about the source material for the books since it was the Chr [...]

This book is a combination of the first book and the first half of the second book in the series although the entire series reads as if it were one giant novel (which is arguably how it should’ve been published in the first place). Telling the story of a young girl who moves to her mother’s hometown and finds herself as a member of a coven of 12 teenage witches, this is a book that is awfully difficult to put down. Set in the early 1990s, it’s funny to read various references that are made [...]

****ACTUAL RATING 3.5****I love the idea of magic and witches and I love books about them. I got this book as a gift after I read The Vampire Diaries and liked them. To me The Secret Circle was a great idea which some bits let down. First of all the things I liked about it.1) Faye. She is my favourite character. She is beautiful and sinister. I just thought she was such good relief after all the good-girl bits with Diana and Cassie and Melanie and Laurel that Faye could then come in and make it [...]

When I went looking for a witch book, I was recommended to read The Secret Circle. Already read one of L.J. Smith's other series, I knew what kind of writing I was in store for. As far as knowledge of the book, whatever I did know came from the TV series and the book and series are vastly different.This is the first time in a long time that I prefer the book over the filmed adaption. I definitely enjoyed the character of Cassie a lot more in a written version, as well as preferring her as my fem [...]
