Twilight vs The Vampire Diaries

Twilight is a movie series while The Vampire Diaries, a TV series. Both were based on book series with their same title. Twilight was from Stephenie Meyer while L.J. Smith, who wrote the New York Times Best Seller Night World, also wrote The Vampire Diaries.

The two famous teen-vampire sagas have gained more fans especially with Twilight because it was the first one which has been put into a film. Many Twilight fans even make some not-so-nice comments to the author of The Vampire Diaries, comparing the two novels. Little that they know, The Vampire Diaries was released earlier than Twilight. And what would they say about The Vampire Diaries’ 4.8 million viewers on its first episode?

Anyway, whatever they say these two vampire stories are without a doubt addicting. And they have their own twist and turns plus some fresh sexy stars.

This is one of my top favorite shows! I love anything vampire-related! My fascination centers around the ability to heal, never be sick! No limitations by any illness! No more pain and suffering...physically anyway. And I am a huge fan of twilight as well. Although they are both in the vampire category they are quite different. Twilight, Bella is drawn to a vampire, who she knows is a vampire, and they struggle in their human/vampire relationship. In Vampire Diaries, she doesnt "truly" know him yet...He's slowly revealing himself. And Stephen is drawn to Elena because she reminds him of a past love whereas Edward has never known love until Bella walked into his life...But nonetheless they all contain romance and drama and action! I love it!

I saw the first episode which is ok. I didn't like the Twilight film-it was cheesy. At least the first Vamp Diaries wasn't so bad. :) As for new shows in general...I'll stick with Glee but thank you for posting this nice summary about it and its comparison with Meyer's stuff.

blaise25 , compared to the books the story line was changed by the producers even the characters show different personalities. Elena had no younger brother in the book and didn't meet Stephan in the Bathroom. Also the Italian names of the characters were altered, like Stephan was turned into a more Americanized form: Stephen which really sucks, and the cast wasn't that good. :P

The books after 5 tend to be boring and bring no new plot or twist into the basic storyline. In case you are searching for REAL series to read you can try:Dorina Basarab (Midnight's daughter and Death's mistress- Karen Chance) Or Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead , The Morganville vampires by Rachel Caine , or Mercedes Thompson (4 books) , Alpha And Omega by Patricia Briggs etc

All in all, the vampire diaries series is good.

yeah, was surprised myself seeing Elena has a brother who's Matt's sister match. I missed a lot of episodes so I stopped watching.. Reading is way better as usual. VD series is good. Thanks for recommending and commenting! :)

skulduggery rocks 6 years ago

i,ve read all the books and i think that more of l.j. smiths books should be turned into movies. especialy the night world saga.

blaise25 6 years ago from close to you... Author

well the Mercedes Thompson series is about werewolves and fae

The Alpha and omega series are also the continuation of the series but while focusing on different characters ( so it is more like on big HUGE two series which complete each other)

The mortal instruments Cassandra clair is about shadow hunters ~


Children of the Apocalypse by Skyla Dawn Cameron nice one with little weird twists

Strange Angels (a combination of different vamps werewolves and more) Lili StCrow ~

Chance, Karen Cassandra Palmer PRETTY NICE ~ connected to the DORINA BASARAB series

THe black dagger brotherhood J. R. Ward (I'd say for over 18 year olds pretty nice )

How to marry a Millionaire Vampire kerrelyn sparks (awesome series and really funny and amazing )

the innocent mage karen miller ** didn't read this yet i have it as PDF

I must come into the 'young at heart' (peurile?) 'cause I'm certainly not a teenage, but I wanted to buy 'the most for the least' starting at the beginning but confused about choice. Can you sort me out? Thanks.

I love this show too! My favorite out of all the shows I watch and I watch my shows religiously lol. Vamp diaries is by far better than Twilight and True Blood. in my opinion anyway (which should be more like fact cause I have great taste) lol just teasing. I absolutely love Damon (Ian) He's so freaken hot and Jeremy! The Drama is crazy and theres never a dull show! You are always at the edge of youre feet, or excited about something. and Elena is just adorable and you might say that Damon is the good vampire and stephan the bad one right now. Damn Klaus. I really dont like him lol
