Waiting on Wednesday with a difference: The Originals
Waiting on Wednesday is my weekly post where I obsess over the shiny new books that I cannot wait to read!
This week, I'm waiting on with a difference... The Originals TV series (The Vampire Diaries spin-off)! I have lots of book I'm waiting on, but with the news this week that The Originals series has officially been greenlit for release next year I decided to break with convention!
The Originals faced a successful backdoor pilot via The Vampire Diaries (the episode aired in the UK last night) and set up the series nicely.
Why I'm Waiting on The Originals...
As the first ever vampires, Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah have always really appealed to me. A 1000 year past allows for one hell of a back story, they have so much history! And their family dynamics are really interesting and at times horrifying!
Klaus in particular has the whole troubled, darkness thing going on which is really appealing in fantasy books, movies and TV programmes. Klaus often gets the best lines and it'll be good to learn more about the vampires without all the Elena drama!
I cannot wait to start watching this show!
