It’s a little difficult to rate this trilogy when there’s so much nostalgia built in to my rereading. I read these in real time in the fall of 1992 as they came out one by one (& you had to go to the bookstore to get them). I can still see 15 year old me reading one as I babysat on a Saturday night after the kids (ages 4, 2, and 1) were in bed. I loved everything about these books including the magic and romance and friendship. This was pre-internet searching, and for years I wondered what a chalcedony rose was. Along with some sacred Christopher Pike’s, this trilogy remains on my bookshelf as a toast to teenage me. ( )

I admit, I picked this up to see if the writing was as bad as the WB TV series I tried to watch. To be honest, I am not real sure which came out worse.

*shudder* I'd swear the main character was a guy based on the descriptions. Or maybe a closet lesbian. Everyone is attractive to this main character. Not a single ugly person. And a lot of the descriptions are things guys might focus on. Curves, hair, eyes. Either way, just horrid.

There's also the overall attitude. If this girl is supposed to be 16-17, why is she being written like she's 11-13? Temper Tantrums, shy but not introvert shy, and general whining preteen angst.

I officially declare this book a dud. So bad, so SO bad. Why did I push to the half way point again? ( )

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 staying awake waaaay past my bed time to get that "one last chapter." I think that should say it all. ( )

I had heard good things about L.J. Smith, and heard that this was going to be a TV show on the CW. I thought that since I already owned the books, I might as well read them. This reminded me a lot of Christopher Pike with familiar elements like a group of supernatural teenagers and a mysterious past, but that's where the similarities ended. It's more like Mean Girls meets The Craft meets Charmed, but there are boys in this coven, which is weird. The magic isn't very fleshed out and the drama is more focused on the jealousies, romances and power struggles of the members than the actual mystery. The central plot seems like it could be resolved with some good old fashioned honesty and trust in your friendships, but that stuff never comes easily to teenagers, so at least it's realistic in that sense. It wasn't a struggle to read, although actual Young Adults may find it more entertaining than this middle-aged cynical one. ( )

I was very sceptical at first about The Secret Circle, but dark and twisty magic intrigues me. Not very much of that in The Initiation, but it is still a very good introduction to the story. If only some of the teenage drama would feel more real-life... YA authors shoud really dial down on the stupidity of 16-year-olds; like feeling that a guy girl met for 3 seconds is her soulmate or having a very inappropriate feelings for a girl she does not know. And introduction to characters seemed very rushed - plus, there are too many of them to form a legit opinion. Except for, like, 4 of them. Oh, but the magic stuff I always love - I'm with Faye on this one: let's explore mysterious old magic! ( )

It wasn't supposed to be this hot and humid on Cape Cod. Cassie had seen it in the guidebook; everything was supposed to be perfect here, like Camelot.
