The CW

Welcome back to Humor Nation. The Vampire Diaries is an amazing show that made the vampires relevant and popular again. Even though the show came at a time when Twilight movie became a major hit. It was natural that numerous people compared TVD with Twilight, some dared calling it a rip-off. But only after watching the show, people realized that it’s entirely different and does a better job in telling the story of the vampires, werewolves than Twilight. TVD is based on the novel books of the same name by LJ Smith. While adopting the books into TV show, the creators made several changes that they felt necessary for the TV version. If you have read the books then you’d surely understand how the writers failed at certain things, but there are a few things they did better than the books.

So Let’s Take A Look At 7 Things That Were Changed In The TV Show From The TVD Book Series

This is the reason why she consumes only on animal blood in the show to survive, not feeding on humans. However, he has fed on Elena a few times in the show. But in the books, sharing of blood is considered to be extremely intimate. It is significant when two people share blood.
