Over the past few years I've been really impressed with the CW. They have consistently engaged me in stories involving teen, supernatural, and super-hero protaganists. Their latest show to catch my attention is The Secret Circle.
Based on the books by L.J. Smith of the same title, here's what it's all about:
The "Secret Circle" series follows 16-year-old Cassie, who moves from California to live with her grandmother in New Salem and falls in love with a mysterious boy named Adam. But, when she enrolls in high school there, she realizes that he, she and all the other elite students at the school are witches! She befriends their leader, Diana, but soon discovers that Adam and Diana are dating, which leads to a whole bunch of complicated drama.
This is the CW's second tv show based on a series by L.J. Smith, the first being The Vampire Diaries, which is now in it's third season. I have not read the books based on this show either. I have enjoyed it in the past, but not enough to go seek out the books. I think that says a lot about how much I am enjoying The Secret Circle.
So what do you think? Have you watched the shows or read the books? I would love to hear your thoughts on how closely the stories match in different formats. Does it even matter to you or are you happy when they are different so you can have more of it?
