Added security on Bella's Book Club...

Hello BBC friends and visitors!

Thanks for visiting our website. The purpose of our website is to discuss supernatural books similar to Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series. We strive to be a website that educates, informs and entertains. We are maintained by a library book club group, and we do not seek profit from this blog. For this reason, you will not find advertising on the site, and we will not allow comments to contain links that promote a product.

Recently, we've had some spammed comments that contain links of this nature, so we have added some security measures. For now, we will continue to allow anyone to make a comment on the blog. However, you will need to do a word verification to submit each comment. Word verification is easy--you simply need to type in the letters that are shown in the box. This verification tells us that you are a person, and not a computerized program that inserts content in our comments field. It would also be helpful if all comments made by you, dear friends, would be listed with a name instead of "anonymous". It doesn't matter if you make up a false name, use your pet's name or even create a secret identity. All of the problem comments made with these bogus links have been listed as "anonymous".

We hope that these added steps do not cause you to stop making comments, because we feel that YOUR OPINION COUNTS, and we love to hear what you think about the books and issues that we discuss!

Casting for Vampire Diaries TV Series

If you haven't heard, L.J. Smith's Vampire Diaries series is being made into a TV series for the CW network. Some of the cast has been announced, and filming of the series begins March 23rd in Vancouver.
Degrassi star Nina Dobrev will play the heroine, Elena, a human teen who gets caught in the middle of the sibling rivalry between vampire brothers Stefan and Damon. Stefan Salvatore will be played by Paul Wesley, and the devilish Damon will be played by none other than Lost's Ian Somerhalder. Elena's human ex-boyfriend will be played by Zach Roerig, from Friday Night Lights. A new character, Jeremy, Elena's outcast younger brother will be played by Steven R. McQueen (grandson of late actor Steve McQueen) from Everwood.

Supporting cast members include Candice Accola, Katerina Graham, Michael Trevino and Sarah Carey. Candice Accola, who was seen as a backup singer in Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour, will be the queen bee Caroline. Elena's BFF, the psychic Bonnie, will be played by Katerina Graham, who you may reckognize from guest roles on Hannah Montana, and from the upcoming Zac Efron film, 17 Again. The school bully Tyler will be played by Michael Trevino, and in a surprise twist, the characters of Meredith and Aunt Judith have been eliminated to be replaced by a new character, Jenna, portrayed by Sarah Carey.

Twilight DVD Extra: Filming the hospital scene

MTV News has gifted us with some cool clips from the bonus features of the Twilight DVD, to be released on March 25th in the USA, and in the UK. Interestingly, I've heard reports that the DVD will be released on March 22nd in Australia, and March 28th in Canada. Why the delay for some countries, I wonder?
Enjoy the clip from the bonus features below. I'll add another clip tomorrow.

Twilight: The Game ?!??!

It's just like my old "Happy Days" game, but at least it's not just another Monopoly wannabe (Anyone want to play Twilight-opoly?). Yes, I'll try to buy one for the library!
