The Awakening - L.J. Smith I read this book some time ago and, for some reason, I didn't continue reading the series... But I want to do so. This first book left me wanting to know more about the story and I felt that there was something missing. I liked it, but it wasn't a big deal.

Besides, Elena is not a character you'll love. It's not even a character you'll slightly like. But then Damon appears and we are all like "oh, you, sexy... Me wants".

Therefore, I don't think I'd recommend this book. It's basic, too simple and, of course, the story is full of cliches. It just good to entertain yourself (if so) when you have nothing else to do nor to read.
