hopefully this will help you coz i was the same after i read the twilight saga in may - Nadine
I read a couple of the House of Night books when I was 17, (18 now though Looool, not much of a difference, I know) and I thought they were a bit childish, and a 'teen' read to be honest (more like 14, rather than 17, which I would consider an adult). In my opinion, besides the first book, a bit boring compared to the Twilight Saga. Try books by Kresley Cole, Kelley Armstrong, Rachel Caine (Rachel's books are for slightly younger teens than 17, but just so gripping and good! ^^) oh and JR Ward, and perhaps Gena Showalter, OOOH and Sherrilyn Kenyon, her books are SO SO good. (These books DO include romance but have a few rather um.. 18+ scenes, if you get what I mean, but hey that just adds to the story! Heh heh. ;p) So go, buy the books and be happy! ;P
I'm a huge vampire romance/action fan and loved the twilight series. After them I tried the Vampire Academy and they were SOOO good! Romance, action, magic, an original new plot and some kicka**heroes+heroines...WOW! I'm dyinng to read the 4th book. Rachel Caine's Morganville Vampires are really fub as well, especially book 2 upwards. Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare are a good blend of all fantasy creatures, so they are very brilliant as well. House of Night are very different especially the magic and vamps there are freakingly superb! Night World series are soooooooooo RoMaNtIc and sweet cause of the soulmate principle and everthing... If you like older teen stories as in 18+ and all, then Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunters and Lara Adrians Midnght Breed series are the best, really. Hope I was helpful and that you enjoy all these series... Happy Reading, Mahin:D)
The Sookie Stackhouse novels, by Charlaine Harris, theres also the new tv show TrueBlood based on them. I second the Kelley Armstrong suggestion, they're really good, it starts with 'Bitten'. Also, Laurell K. Hamiltons' Anita Blake series, and her other is very good though its about fairies not vampires. To be warned Laurell is A LOT more sexual than twilight.. as is Kelley Armstrong but not as much. Sookie is tame, but better than twilight. Hope this is useful.
"The Mortal Instruments" by Cassandra Clare (City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass) I found dangerously addictive when I discover them a month or so ago so suggest them. Also, the Hunger Games by Suzanna Collins - would suggest that too. The sequel, Catching Fire, is coming out next month - it's not vampires, but still it's well worth it!
Again, not a story about Vampires but I loved Twilight so perhaps you'll like the same as me...try Lian Hearn's Otori Triology (although there are actually 5 books altogether) - 'Across the Nightingale Floor', 'Grass for his Pillow', 'Brilliance of the Moon', 'Harsh Cry of the Heron' (extended epilogue) and 'Heaven's Net is Wide' (prequel) xx
read all the house of night seriesd and they're a bit repetitive and the style isn't really what i like but i enjoyed the LJ smith night world books and i love percy jackson atm! its really young but its something to read. the Luxe novels are brilliant, even though they have nothing to do with vampires etc but i just thought i'd mention them.
Hi, you should try the Morganville Vampire Series - just what you need after finishing the Twilight series and there are quite a few books in the Morganville Series to keep you going. They have a good storyline; excellent likeable characters and romance too!
Hi, the Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare is brilliant, i would definitely recommend the books if you are into fantasy books as there is a good mix of vampires, werewolves, demons, everything!
The House of Night books are good stories let down by REALLY poor writing. I would reccommend the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs: Mercy is a shapeshifter who becomes embroiled in the doings of werewolves, vampires and fae...much better written. And for vampire humour you can't beat Mary Janice Davidson's Undead series!
Look out for Bluebell Cottage by new British author Heather M. J. L. Watson to be released next year! I've been lucky enough to have read a test copy and I can tell you it is exactly the book we Twilighters need to fill the hole left behind. I think you can actually pre-order it on Amazon so take a look. I became a fan of the author on facebook and you can read the synopsis on there.Bluebell Cottage
i agree loved sookie stackhouse awesome books also mercey thompson by patricia briggs are good another fab book is ilona andrews books magic bites, magic burns, magic strikes get reading you will love them
I couldn`t agree more strongly with the charlaine harris 'Sookie Stackhouse' recommendations. So much better than twilight series and thus far there is 9 in the series!! Amazingly well written and totally addictive!! happy reading xx
