that time I corrected a friend of a friend on social media

This is a thing of beauty. Not only because I love The Vampire Diaries and read them cover to cover as soon as I discovered them in seventh grade. But, also because Dylan O’Brien is my favorite maze-runnin’ werewolf’s bestie.

But, here’s the thing: I keep seeing this where people have commented, “Anne Rice had me from page one!
I love Anne Rice! These books are the best!” The implication being that Anne Rice wrote TVD. Great! Super! Good for you! I’m glad you love Anne Rice! She wrote Interview with a Vampire! L.J. Smith wrote The Vampire Diaries.

I know there are a lot of vampires around, but please let us endeavor to get the classics right.

Happy Halloween!
