Okay, so I am not going to lie- I hated "The Vampire Diaries" novels. I read then in their entirety (well, the originals) and basically had to force myself to finish them, but I LOVE the TV show. And now I love "The Secret Circle" TV show, so I am kinda wondering what the books are all about, how similar they are to one another and all that jazz.
"The Secret Circle: The Initiation and The Captive" by L.J. Smith
From Goodreads: "The circle's power has lured her home.
Forced to move from sunny California to gloomy New England, Cassie longs for her old life. Even so, she feels a strange kinship to a terrifying group of teens who seem to rule her school. Initiated into the coven of witches that's controlled New Salem for hundreds of years, she's drawn into the Secret Circle, a thrill that's both intoxicating and deadly. But when she falls for the mysterious and intriguing Adam, Cassie must choose whether to resist temptation or risk dark forces to get what she wants—even if it means that one wrong move could ultimately destroy her."
