    1 thought on “The Initiation

    1. I read this trilogy so many times as a teen that I had to buy a whole new set of books since they were so worn out. And then I pretty much wore those out too. I think the novels definitely qualify as guilty pleasures. I hadn't touched the books in years but when I was moving, I happened to come across my tattered copy and decided to open it up again. To my surprise, I tore through them in about a day and a half! At the age of 25, after having read these books about a dozen times, I found myself [...]

    2. As a young teen, L.J. Smith was an idol. From Dark Visions to The Vampire Diaries, she crafted dark genre pieces that were both intelligent and gripping. To this day, I reread my well worn copies with childlike glee, running over in my mind the influences her writing had on my imagination: the fact that for years I wanted to be a parapsychologist, that I love overblown fantasy stories with a love twist, that even now I'm wearing a hemitite bracelet. The first part of the The Secret Circle triolo [...]

    3. I picked up this book after seing some of the TV series episodes and I must admite that I am disappointed. I thought it would be as dinamic s the tv series, but NO, and I don't usually say that but I almost gave up reading it. I hated Cassie. She's childish, insecure and stupid. She keeps dreaming about a boy she has only seen once and talked to for less than an hour. Also, she keeps winning and crying, because she has no friends and she wants Diana to be friends with her. And that's not the wor [...]

    4. The Initiation (1992) (The Secret Circle #1), L.J. Smithعنوان: شروع؛ نویسنده: ال.جی اسمیت؛

    5. Ok, confession: I just ADORE books that have anything to do with witches, vampires, werewolves, etc. This series is such a great read! You will enjoy them if you are into YA.

    6. Girl considering herself different + lonely mom + beach + new home + grandma + new school + witches + secrets + best friend becoming 'older' sister + prohibited love + drama = good way to spend a hot day. Someday I might look back at this series and finish it.

    7. Back home, her friends would probably describe her as "nice, but shy" or "fun, but kind of quiet." But no one here knew that. Maybe this year she'd be Cassie the Extrovert or even Cassie the Party Girl. Maybe she'd even be good enough for the girl with the shining hair."I started reading this series because I got into the show a few years back, only to find out it was cancelled after one season. I need to know what happens! The book is very different from the show. Both follow Cassie Blake as sh [...]

    8. I read the series a few years back and now realise just how much I ate it up. I decided to re - read them after watching the first ep of the TV show and deciding that it looked promising. Plus I remember really enjoying the series so thought refreshing my memory might do some goodUnfortunately with reading something years later, you notice a whole lot more.Cassie' mother has decided that they are to move to Salem Falls after she hears that her estranged mother is ill. But that couldn't be furthe [...]

    9. Ši knyga tik dar kartą patvirtino, kad mano sritis fantastinės, bet ne per daug, knygos, kuriose pilna paslaptingų dalykų, romantinės gijos. Skaitant šią knygą, puslapiai tiesiog patys vertėsi, rašymo stilius lengvas, kiekvienas veikėjas savaip patiko, iš pradžių maišėsi visi vardai, bet knygai įpusėjus, išryškėjo visų veikėjų tam tikri charakterio bruožai. Šis kūrinys šiek tiek priminė M.Stranberg,Sara B.Elfgren ,,Ratą", tad jei skaitėte minėtąją knygą. tai m [...]

    10. I only read this because I started watching the CW series which really drew me into the storyline. However, the TV show is completely different, as the book only seems to function as a basic set-up for it.My thoughts on the first part of the book series: It's a fast read, quite a page-turner. But its writing style - oh my. Some parts are just repetitive and there's a clear overuse of adjectives. Its tone isn't much better either. I mean some parts were really great, but others - way too over-dra [...]

    11. Καλούτσικο. Ευχάριστο, απλά γραμμένο τίποτα σημαντικό αλλά δεν είναι κακό. Είναι μικρό και όλα γίνονται πολύ γρήγορα, αν κ η πλοκή δεν είχε τίποτα ιδιαίτερο. Σε κάποια κριτική διάβασα ότι το πρώτο βιβλίο είναι εισαγωγικό, τώρα που το διάβασα κ εγώ μπορώ να πω ότι αυτό το σχόλ [...]

    12. My opinion on this book is biased. Very, very biased. Disgustingly so.First I'll give a very short review on the book then I'll move on to the show.This book is so flawed but it's impossible for me to give it less than 4 stars.The Book“Will you swear to be loyal to the circle? Never to harm anyone who stands inside it? Will you protect and defend those who do, even if it costs you your life?” -pg. 185Cassie Blake and her mother have moved to New Salem to live with Grandma Howard. She's not t [...]

    13. "Det var gået op for hende at der var noget langt værre end at blive ydmyget. For første gang denne uge frygtede hun ikke for sin stolthed, men derimod for sit liv." Jeg så første (og eneste) sæson af 'The Secret Circle' og jeg var så væk i den og ærgrerede mig også en del, da tv-serien kort tid efter blev aflyst. Jeg fandt senere ud af, at serien var baseret på en bog, men tiden gik og andre bøger var mere interessante og sådan kan det jo gå.Men! Da jeg så, at de søde folk fra T [...]

    14. This first book is amazing! No wonder it was made into a TV show! I really love it! Though I must admit, the book is better than the TV adaptation! They changed a lot of things from the number of characters, plots, names and even their appearances! JEEZ! :( I can't wait to read the other books in this series! I really feel sympathy towards Cassie! Poor Cassie! Why is it Adam and Diana needs to be together? :'( I always wonder if Cassie's mom never left New Salem, is there a possibility Adam and [...]

    15. Ενα νεανικό δροσερό ανάγνωσμα με έναν αέρα μυστηρίου όπου οι τελευταίες 100 σελίδες σε βάζουν στο τρυπάκι (ω ναι έχει ανατροπή!) να θες να διαβάσεις και το #2 σίγουρα !

    16. Well, considering how much my book club members hated this book, I think I rather enjoyed it. The story is definitely a guilty pleasure reading, but read in context (a YA book written in the early 1990s), it seems pretty typical. Yes, there were some cringe-worthy moments, but they reminded me of being a stupid teenager. So often the characters' actions or reactions in YA books today are too adult. The insta-love feels inauthentic. In this book, however, it felt exactly the way I remember. Excep [...]

    17. I decided to read L.J. Smith's The Secret Circle series when heard it was being produced as a TV series this year. I read her Vampire Diaries series before watching the show and found I enjoyed her writing much more than I did the television version of the story. After having read the first book in The Secret Circle series, The Initiation, I found myself less than impressed and hoping the producers take some liberties with the story line in this book.The Initiation doesn't do much to endear the [...]

    18. Perhaps, I was at a bit of a disadvantage going into this book due to having watched the TV series on the CW, prior to reading the first three books of this series.The book is much more different than the TV series is, with a larger cast of characters to fit the coven. This book is decent for a young adult paranormal book, but I suppose it felt more like a shallow telling of a young teenage girl with equal shallow ideals of popularity and belonging. A main character with a strong desire of belon [...]

    19. Den her bog er dejlig letlæst og herlig, men jeg havde begået den fejl i tidernes morgen at se serien, før jeg fik læst bogen. Jeg kunne godt lide bogen, men jeg tror, at jeg ville have sat mere pris på den, hvis jeg slet ikke vidste, hvad jeg kunne forvente. Den fulgte nemlig ikke serien så meget, som jeg havde set, så jeg var meget forvirret og ventede ofte på 'hvornår sker det der', som aldrig rigtig kom. Når det så er sagt, så er jeg glad for, at jeg endelig er begyndt på serien [...]

    20. I read this because the television show looked like something I wanted to watch, if that makes any sense. It was okay. Predictable, but short, I think, and not slow. Also, not suspenseful in any way. I feel like it's a little dated. It definitely reads like the first book in a series. Nothing gets resolved. There are a lot of explanations of witchy things. I saw the Craft, thanks, I don't need you to explain to me the ethics of love spells or calling the elements or blah blah blah. I know this b [...]

    21. Que no. Que de ninguna manera. Que al medio libro yo siga sin saber de qué va es imperdonable. Ella es tonta. Pero tonta del culo. Tiene una dependencia y una necesidad de aceptación que es cuando menos preocupante. Ese instalove del final que aparece por toda la cara y tras haber hablado una vez no me gusta nada. Y es encima es aburrido, repetitivo y tiene poquísima acción o puntos de interés. Un tostonazo, en definitiva.Reseña próximamente. O no. Depende de si considero que merece la pe [...]

    22. Купих книгата преди 7 месеца и идея нямам защо чак сега я чета :D Много ми хареса.Имаше мистерия,романтика,убийство и нямам търпение да разбера как ще продължи историята !

    23. Not too bad, but not great. I hoped it got better, but it didn't. Another series I'm never going to finish.

    24. Όσοι είστε τακτικοί αναγνώστες, θα γνωρίζετε πολύ καλά την άποψή μου σχετικά με την L.J. Smith και το "Vampire Diaries", το λογοτεχνικό εκείνο έργο της που ίσως της χάρισε και την μεγαλύτερη μερίδα αναγνωρισιμότητας στο σύνολο της καριέρας της. Και μπορεί το τελευταίο βιβλίο της προανα [...]

    25. Cassie Blake is distraught when her mother decides to uproot to the small town of New Salem, in order to take care of a grandmother that Cassie had never even met before. But that is only the start of her problems. Starting a new school, trying to make new friends - and discovering that some of the people she would most like to befriend are all part of some secret Club that Cassie is not permitted to join. Then a girl dies, and Cassie is finally initiated into the Secret Circle, learning that ma [...]

    26. I have had two L.J. Smith series on my to-read list for quite some time, but I always postponed reading both because there was always something else I was a little more excited about. However, after becoming a fan of the CW show "based" on The Secret Circle series, I decided to go ahead and give this one a try. I'm not sure I'm glad I did. Generally (with the exception of anything written by Nicholas Sparks), I believe in the adage, "The book is always better," but in this case -- at least with [...]
