How About a Little Fun? Who Would You Pick?-Vampire Diaries

September 8th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books

I don’t know why but for the past 2-3 weeks I’ve been feeling a little down in the dumps.  Instead of moping thought I would try to post something fun and hope to see some interesting comments from people.

I just started noticing lately that a lot of the books I’m reading involve love triangles and quite a number of them aren’t clearly black or white on who the heroine should choose.    Both guys all have their good points and are not totally bad.  So how about a series of who would you pick if you had the two guys fighting over you and why?

Today’s post focuses on The Vampire Diaries series by LJ Smith.  We have-

  • Matt-the ex-boyfriend who is really the boy next door.  Good looking, sweet, athletic, what’s not to like?
  • Stefan-the hot, sweet, new vampire in town
  • Damon-the hot, bad boy, new vampire in town

Oh to have such troubles huh?  This was really a tough one.  Matt is such a sweetheart that I feel bad for him getting the shaft but I do have a soft spot for bad boys like Damon.  Could I say it would be exciting to date Damon and marry Matt?  The only reason I am saying I’m developing a soft spot for Damon is after book 5 (Nightfall) we definitely started to see a softer side of him.  Stefan just never really did it for me.  He actually seemed a little boring to me.

What about you? Who would you pick?

And if you want to start thinking about it the other triangles (squares?).  I’ll be covering each in future posts.

  • Team Gale vs. Team Peeta in The Hunger Games & Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
  • Seth vs Keenan  in Wicked Lovely & Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr
  • Dmitri vs. Adrian in the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead
  • Oliver vs. Jack in the Blue Bloods series by Melissa de la Cruz
  • Edward vs. Jacob in Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
  • Bill vs. Eric in the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris
  • Zane vs. David in the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld

    Interesting post! :) I’m looking forward to the show since the books didn’t really interest me.

    I would definitely pick Zane over David from the Uglies Series. I was so sad after what happened in Book 3. Mostly for any book series, I won’t be able to choose, so we’ll see what happens with The Vampire Diaries! :D

    Great feature! I haven’t read the Vampire Diaries so I really cannot answer the question this time.

    OH I like this idea!!

    (have you thought about making it a reading challenge, LOL?)

    I haven’t read The Vampire Diaries yet so I can’t make any comment as to who I’d choose in this grudge match but you know I’ll be chiming in when you get to The Hunger Games edition! Oh and the True Blood series too, I’ve got opinions on that as well ;)

    Fabulous idea!

    I haven’t read the Vampire Diaries yet (really should have put in a hold to read at least the first one before the show came on). SO I’m not sure which one…
    I do have opinions on all the others except the series by Melissa Marr (also on my to-read list) :)

    LOL. Will be interested to hear what you guys think of the series overall. I’m curious how the three guys are going to be in the tv series vs the book and if that will change my opinion. Michelle-I know for sure there will be some heated opinions for Peeta vs Gale :)

    I am Damon’s girl. I have ALWAYS been Damon’s girl, ever since book 1. I haven’t read the newest one yet, but will soon. I always thought he had a hidden softer side.

    Go TeamDamon!

    Aw I would totally pick DAMON! He’s HOT!!! So sexy and dangerous, I can’t help it, I have a thing for bad boys ;)
    And everyone thinks that he’s so bad, but he isn’t after all, he has a soft side too!

    Great feauture! I’ll let you know if I come to think about another love triangle!

    Glad to see there are so many Damon girls out there :)

    with the tv series as my first experience with vampire diaries, i’m going with the goody-goody, stefan!

    Damon. Especially after Nightfall. I agree with you, in that Stefan never really did anything for me. Matt’s sweet, but he doesn’t seem to have as much charisma and personality as Damon.

  11. Serena (Savvy Verse & Wit)

    I’ve only seen the television show, so based on those episodes, I think I would be team Stefan!

  12. Amanda M.

    I’ve only seen the shows, so I’m defintely for Stefan!

  13. The Book Vixen

    Stefan is the only one for me. He’s hot. He’s got nice abs, a cute face, perfect hair. Yum! I’m not digging Damon at all.

  14. dsuzuki

    I’m curious if more people who read the books go for Damon where as more tv show people prefer Stefen?

    Oh please make a button and make this a weekly meme so the rest of us can do it. It’s so fun!! I haven’t had anything meme wise I wanted to play around with.

    For this, Damon only because he is so much more interesting and more fun than Stefan. I do not mind the killing humans for power thing.

  16. dsuzuki

    LOL. If I had any artistic talent I would so make a button. I’m having a lot of fun with this. Love Damon!
