Game of Thrones
The ever popular novels inspired the tv series itself as presented by HBO. Game of Thrones is the first book in the series of high fantasy novels A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin and features many events that took place in the novels also.
The Vampire Diaries
Despite varied differences in terms of appearance and events that take place in the series of books, TVD is vastly inspired (a given) by the books and can also give us a few spoilers if you read ahead! And just like the show is to yet tell us who Elena ends up with, L. J. Smith has yet to write the ending to her sequences!
