First of all, both of these intoxicating sagas come from the same genius mind: L. J. Smith. The TV show Vampire Diaries is based on her book series of the same name. One thing I love about TVD is that there are so many storylines going on, and I’m invested in all of them! There are various characters to root for and more and more supernatural twists every episode. Smith’s Night World series does this so so well too! It starts out with one girl, Poppy, who is dying of a terminal illness and is given a tempting offer. From there, the series grows to add more characters whose stories weave in and around each other to build a world you really get invested in quickly. It’s been a year since TVD ended, and if you’re missing some quality supernatural world building and, let’s face it, romance (TEAM DAMON FOR LIFE), do yourself a favor and pick up this series!
