Twilight saga so soon, but it
was amazing while it lasted. The complicated triangles, the forbidden love, the
fight between human and supernatural…it was too good to be true!
Ahh, the end of an era. We’re crushed to have to say goodbye
We knew there had to be more books that we could read to get
our Twilight fix, so we put together a list of the top reads, loaded with all
the Twilight aspects we love. From
supernatural creatures to messed-up love affairs, we’ve got ya covered!
Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
Set in New York City, the first installment of the series, City of Bones, follows a 15-year-old
girl living in Brooklyn named Clary Fray. When Clary witnesses a boy being
murdered while at a nightclub with her best friend Simon, Clary is cast into a
world of terrifying demons and bad-boy Shadowhunters—a world in which she plays
an instrumental role. With love triangles and demon-hunting, this book is sure
to keep you captivated.
Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith
While you’re probably familiar with the hit TV show, you may
not know that it all originated from a book series! This story centers around
Elena Gilbert, a teenage girl who ends up falling in love with two vampire
brothers. The brothers are very different from one another—one is kind and
sweet, and the other is nothing but pure bad-boy. Which brother will Elena
choose, and what will happen when she makes her final decision?
The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins
Maybe you’ve already read this super popular series. If not,
you most definitely should! The Hunger
Games is all about the fight for life and death, set in a futuristic world
where society has been reduced to thirteen districts. When Primrose Everdeen,
member of the 12th district, is called to participate in the annual
Hunger Games, her older sister Katniss volunteers in her place. Now, Katniss
must fight to the death in the arena, while trying to figure out which boy she
Louder Than Words by Laurie Plissner
Ever since her family’s car crashed into a tree that snowy
night, Sasha has been unable to speak except through a computer with a robotic
voice. After four years, her body is healed, but her spirit and voice remain
broken. Then one day, a gorgeous, dark-haired boy named Ben answers Sasha’s
private thoughts—out loud. This boy can read minds (like Edward!), but it’s no
big deal in his family of unusually “talented” people. With Ben’s love, Sasha
begins to truly heal, but will he be able to stay with her forever?
The Mediator series by Meg Cabot
This series is like Twilight
in that it’s all about a supernatural love triangle. Suzie Simon is a teenage
mediator, someone who can communicate with ghosts and the undead. Her main goal
is to help them reach “The Great Beyond,” but that isn’t always the case. Suzie
falls for a 19th century ghost named Jesse who only she and some
other mediators can see. Jesse’s competition is Paul, one of Suzie’s fellow
mediators. Will Suzie end up with her beloved ghost, or the boy who she can actually
introduce to her parents?
Venom by Fiona Paul
Young and rich Cassandra Caravello has everything a girl
could want: beautiful clothes, exclusive party invitations, and a gorgeous and
wealthy fiancé. But when Cass stumbles upon a dead body, she is thrust into a
world of secret societies and monstrous murderers. Soon, she finds herself
falling for a poor artist named Falco who has a knack for getting into trouble.
Cass must decide between her two worlds, but choices like these aren’t always
Black City by Elizabeth Richards
In the aftermath of a horrendous war, 16-year-old Natalie
Buchanan and Ash Fisher fall in love. With Natalie being a human and the
daughter of a murdered government official, the last boy she was supposed to
fall for was a Darkling. Ash Fisher is a brooding half-blood Darkling boy, but
Natalie’s heart betrays everything she’s been taught when she meets him. Soon,
Natalie must choose between her recovering family and the boy of the same breed
who killed her father.
House of Night series by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast
Yay, another vampire series! Or should we say vampyre. When
16-year-old Zooey Redbird becomes a fledgling vampyre, she must attend the
House of Night boarding school in Tulsa, Oklahoma. There, she takes Vampyre
Sociology 101 and learns the ways of her breed. Becoming a full vampyre takes
four years, and 1 in 10 fledglings die in the process because their bodies
can’t handle the Change. Zooey works to defeat evil and become a full vampyre,
all while juggling multiple boyfriends at a time.
