The Vampire Diaries: Unlocking the Secrets of Mystic Falls Advanced Review & Giveaway!


Winner announced on widget below

What a treat! On September 12th, Insight Editions is releasing a behind the scenes guide to The Vampire Diaries called The Vampire Diaries: Unlocking the Secrets of Mystic Falls.  It features a Foreword by Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson, a Preface by Ian Somerhalder and an Introduction by Paul Wesley.

I had the pleasure of receiving an advanced copy of the book to review and another copy as a giveaway (Rules for the giveaway below). I highly recommend The Vampire Diaries: Unlocking the Secrets of Mystic Falls. This book is the perfect addition to any Vampire Diaries fan’s collection. With the turn of each page, a surprise awaits. Beautiful never before seen, behind-the-scenes photos, character/actor pages and interviews. But my favorite are unique inserts throughout the book (such as: a page from Bonnie’s grandmother’s grimoire, a menu from the Mystic Grill and more).

I don’t want to spoil anything else, but below are some sneak peeks of pages from the book, including Ian Somerhalder’s Preface! Grab some Kleenex! This was such a special time in theirs and all of our lives, and this book perfectly captures all of the wonderful memories!

You can pre-order the book on Amazon, or if you would like to take a chance at winning a copy, check out our giveaway below!
