OMIgawds, so I think I may have talked about this book launching my faith??!!! Yes, i know it's a fiction novel, but it made me curious and I went seeking and landed in the lap of the Goddess, (don't knock it it worked out). So a few months ago, on one of the obsessive LJ Smith fan sites (yes i have been a fan and member ever since reading the books), they broke the news that the CW had bought the rights to make LJ's's book into a show, and many of us were in the wait and see mood.

CW was mum for a point, but now they have put up the previews, I'm excited for several reasons,:
1) there are no witch shows on at all
2) they actually managed to keep the main characters,

reasons i'm not happy so far
1) where the Hell is the rest of the coven??? it supposed to be 13 people.
2) they moved the show from Salem Ma to Washington.
3) Diana's a blond, Cassie is a brunette, the guy playing Adam should play Nick, and Nick should play Adam
4)who the heck is Melissa?? why oh why couldn't they have just kept Deborah, Nick's cousin as Faye's partner in crime??
5) will the old coven of Crones be in this one??
I'm still excited to see the show, just cause it looks cool, but their synopsis changed the whole story,

THE SECRET CIRCLE: Cassie Blake was a happy, normal teenage girl – until her mother Amelia dies in what appears to be a tragic accidental fire. Orphaned and deeply saddened, Cassie moves in with her warm and loving grandmother Jane in the beautiful small town of Chance Harbor, Washington – the town her mother left so many years before – where the residents seem to know more about Cassie than she does about herself. As Cassie gets to know her high school classmates, including sweet-natured Diana and her handsome boyfriend Adam, brooding loner Nick, mean-girl Faye and her sidekick Melissa, strange and frightening things begin to happen. When her new friends explain that they are all descended from powerful witches, and they’ve been waiting for Cassie to join them and complete a new generation of the Secret Circle, Cassie refuses to believe them – until Adam shows her how to unlock her incredible magical powers. But it’s not until Cassie discovers a message from her mother in an old leather-bound book of spells hidden in her mother’s childhood bedroom, that she understands her true and dangerous destiny. What Cassie and the others don’t yet know is that darker powers are at play, powers that might be linked to the adults in the town, including Diana’s father and Faye’s mother – and that Cassie’s mother’s death might not have been an accident.

The series stars Britt Robertson as Cassie Blake, Thomas Dekker as Adam Conant, Gale Harold as Charles Meade, Phoebe Tonkin as Fay Chamberlain, Jessica Parker Kennedy as Melissa, Shelley Hennig as Diana Meade, Louis Hunter as Nick, Ashley Crow as Jane Blake and Natasha Henstridge as Dawn Chamberlain. Based upon the book series by L.J. Smith (author of The Vampire Diariesbook series), THE SECRET CIRCLE is from Outerbanks Entertainment and Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Kevin Williamson (The Vampire Diaries, Scream,Dawson’s Creek), Andrew Miller (Imaginary Bitches), Leslie Morgenstein (The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl) and Gina Girolamo. Elizabeth Craft (The Vampire Diaries, Lie to Me) & Sarah Fain (The Vampire Diaries, Lie to Me) were executive producers on the pilot which was directed by Liz Friedlander (The Vampire Diaries, 90210).
I guess I can only wait and see how it plays out. I do love the fact that girl who plays Faye is also one of my childhood fave stars, she was on a Aussie show called H2O just add water, she was a mermaid
then, and now she's a witch.

So check out the previews, and I'll wait and see, before i judge, hey I mean they changed Vamp Diaries and look how big a hit that one is.

Be blessed


  1. I'd like to see the book that stared my journey made into a show...I think the "The Fifth Sacred Thing" would make an amazing show. I can't wait to see how CW does the "Secret Circle"

  2. @Jennifer I would love to read that yes I can't wait to see what they do.
