The closest book/s to Twilight i read is Evernight by Claudia Gray (sequel just came out Stargazer). Vampire Academy is aftter. Nightworld LJ Smith. Also the little Goddess series by Amy Lane ~(though NOT YA). For adult stuff, very addictive: Black Dagger Brotherhood, psy-Changeling series, the Darkyn series, Midnight Breed, Lords of the underworld, Immortals after dark, Demonica novels by L Ione and the Alien Huntress series to name a few. Enjoy!
Not all of these have vampires and werewolves, but they do have romance and fantasy and adventure. I've loved them for years and kept the books always. Song of the Lioness quartet by Tamora Pierce Immortals quartet by Tamora Pierce (especially enjoyable.) Wicca series by Cate Tiernan Bitten, and Stolen, by Kelley Armstrong. Also, Living with the Dead was very good. Nightworld series by L J Smith (meets all your required categories.) Shapeshifter series by Ali Sparkes also excellent. Beautiful Dead Percy Jackson series was also excellent, I've just finished The Last Olympian and had to re-read it because it was so good.
I agree the House of Night novels are deffinatly worth the read!!! I am a big fan of twilight and when i finished the series i wanted other books just as addictive!
I have just started reading the Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine. I have just finished book one and am now trying to find a cheap version of book 2! It was very addictive although if you like vampires being the good guys i wouldn't recomend it! well worth the read!
I completely agree about the Tales of the Otori series, no vampires unfortunately but sooo romantic and sad, I cried my way through Brilliance of the moon. I have the read the first four House of Night novels, and they have quite a good storyline but (I think someone else said this) are really fairly badly written, worth a read but nothing on twilight. I know they are aimed at much younger teens, but I still love the His Dark Materials trilogy. The amber spyglass is one of my all time favourite books!
Definitely try SHIVER by Maggie Stiefvater. It was the first book since Twilight that I really enjoyed. Extremely well written and there are a further two books in this series to satisfy the reader. A beautiful love story with a few werewolves thrown in for good measure!
I have just started reading a book called Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatric.I have only read about half of it and its great, people have said its too much like the twilight saga but i dont really think so. its the only one in the series so far but theres a second one to be released soon. Great Read.
Another one that isn't vampires/werewolves, but you should try Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr, the first in a quartet that isn't yet completed. It involves dark faeries and such with some romance thrown in there. Was so glad someone else on here mentioned the song of the lioness books too- excellent reading when I was still a wee one.
Ok there are different avenues after Twi: YA fiction and very much like Twilight in gothic romanticism and atmosphere are: Fallen, Evernight (series of 2), Evermore, Strange Angels, Vampire Academy, House of Night series, Shiver, Hush Hush, Morganville Vampires, The Mortal Instruments trilogy. Romantic, adventure, great heroes, great love. Books with a slightly different YA twist (more fast action, less romance, but gripping and great) are: The Hunger Games (amazing action), Uglies-Pretties-Specials-Extras (sci fi) . If you are tired of YA, something in the middle between YA and paranormal romance, are The Graceling, Fire and the amazing Dark Kind series (Blood Tears, Blood Lament, Blood ALliance), just finished reading them, breathtaking. Better writing than other categories, more history, incredible plot weaving, heart filling stories. For adult fiction i would suggest anything by JR Ward, S. Kenyon, Showalter, L. Ione. Dark, broody, hot sex, alpha males vampires, its all there. For a comic relief series with paranormal elements, C. Harris Sookie Stackhouse. Also the Argenau Vampires, LSparks. Happy readings!!
if your looking for vampire action and romance, i recommend the vampire academy series. its full of forbidden love and there are also some twists. i couldnt put them down and finished each book within about 4 days (which is amazing for me)!!! i have just finished reading book #4 and am waiting for #5 to come out soon. CAN'T WAIT!!!!!
