Suggestions: Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie is lovely and for adult readers. "Graceling" by Kristin Cashore is for a younger reader--teens-- and is more complex than Twilight series.

Try Freda Warringtons ~ A taste of blood wine, A dance in blood velvet and The dark blood of poppies, there great vampire books, and Dark Cathedral is a great book aswell not about vampires but one of my fav books.

I just read one called A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whilcomb. It was great, like Twilight but with ghosts!!!!! Also if you want more vampire stuff a book called Let the Right One In is very good, Twilight but more violent!!!!!

If you want a grown up version of Twilight, check out Anne Rice.

Try The Magic Scales by Sam Wilding. 336 pages and a great yarn. I read it in 2 days, though.

A certain slant of light is a fantastic book, also i have just read Need by Carrie Jones, its like Twilight but with pixies, i have also just read Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr that was a good read, the best thing is to check what Amazon recommends for you, i have enjoyed every book that they have recommended.

Charlaine Harris "Sookie Stackhouse" series is a good one to try next as is Kim Harrison's " The Hollows" series

LJ Smith's NightWorld series. You'll see just where SMeyers stole a lot of ideas from.

Try No.1 Chesterfield Square by Nick Jones. Fabulous read. Expansive plot, sprawling cross-class saga,totally engrossing.

Has anyone read Evernight by Claudia Grey? it was mentioned somewhere as a to-read-after-Twilight-book, but I am not sure if it's any good!

never find a series of books as good as the twilight saga, ive just finished them and im struggling to concentrate on any other book! im finding them all boring compared to twilight!!

well i know its only one book but why not read her other book "host" just to take your mind off the time i got lost in it from the first page....i hope this helps. :)

I agree! Even those books I read and loved before reading the saga are boring now. Something about the saga just grips you through all 4 books. The only thing that has come close is The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare - 3 books in total (City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass). They were brilliant and I would read them again. I just finished the last one City of Glass last night, and started Twilight again today!

Anne Rice - The Vampire Lestat.
Very Compelling and a good one to start with. Some of her later works are a bit of an aquired pun intended!

try Melissa Marr's Wicked Lovely. It is a paranormal love story with faries and is very good. I prefered it to the Twilight books, as it is has a lot more original concepts. It's part of a series and followed by Ink Exchange and Fragile Eternity.
Other good ones are:
Kim Harrison's Hollow Series
Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire Series.
Paranormal Romance wise there's Christine Feehan's Carpathian Series.
There are a lot of books out there featuring the same themes which are in my opinion vastly superior to Twilight. Don't get me wrong, I actually enjoyed the Twilight books but there are some very decent ones out there which are more original then the Twilight Saga.

I thoroughly reccommend Patricia Briggs: Moon Called, Blood Bound, Iron Crossed and Bone Crossed. They beat the Twilight series hands down as the characters are all interesting rather than annoying(!)and the plots are tight and intelligent. They have werewolves, vampires and fae and are a superb read - I really look forward to the next one xxx

Try Maria V Snyder's Poison Study - it's the first book in her Study series. If you liked Twilight, you can't fail to love this series!

I have read S Meyers The Host, fantastic book, keeps you on the edge of your seat. Read it twice and it only gets better. Had me in tears towards the end.

City of Bones (Mortal Instruments)- a bit longer than Twilight, but it is very fast, and better than Twilight in my humble opinion
His Dark Materials Boxed set: "Northern Lights", "The Subtle Knife", "The Amber Spyglass"-Long, and complex
Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment- Fang beats Edward, full stop. Max is better than Bella, well much less moany.
The Hunger Games (Hunger Games Trilogy)- Hard hitting, wow.
