I would suggest Dean Koontz and some of his novels which are along the 'supernatural' lines:

Yes, I think Dave Pelzer did an excellent job on this book. He was very brave to write about his own childhood. This is my favorite book every. I cried clear through it. What was your favorite part in the book?

I thought since midnight sun got leaked Meyers was no longer planning on releasing it. In fact I thought she put up the first few chapters on her website for everyone to read since she was no longer going to release. I read it and it was ok... Definitely not as good as the original books.

Laurell K Hamilton has 2 series that are similar in nature to the Twilight books; vampires, werewolves (and other were-creatures), faeries, goblins, and the like, but are definitely intended for mature readers. There is -some- gratuitous um...adult material (lol) but the books have very well-defined, multi-faceted plots and characters. Both series have modern settings, with supernatural twists )
First is her Anita Blake series, beginning with _Guilty Pleasures_ (the title is the name of a nightclub owned by a vampire). Anita is a vampire hunter, and takes her job very seriously.
Second is the Merideth "Merry" Gentry series. _A Kiss of Shadows_ begins the story of Merry Gentry, P.I., who also happens to be a half-human faerie princess, competing with her cousin to inherit the throne! This series is much more of a "faerie tale" than the Anita Blake series (and is my favorite of the 2), but definitely holds it's own; it can be pretty scary at times, lol )
I definitely love BOTH series, and have read each a few times. I only -just- began the Twilight series, and i am loving IT just as much!!
I hope that helps? i know this response is a while after your initial post, but if nothing else, maybe could inspire some great summer reading? )
GOOD LUCK!! )

Try the House Of Night series by PC Cast or The Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. Both are good series books (Young Adult). Also I agree with phreec, the Laurell K Hamilton books are good but lots of adult material. If you haven't read Charlaine Harris, I recommend her! Her Sookie series is fun and I love the characters! As for non-supernatural books with a great love story, try Nicholas Sparks.

Obviously you enjoy books with excellent narrating and descriptive plots. That is sort of the BIG hook with the books written by Stephanie Meyer. I would recommend reading the first five series written by V.C Andrews (prior to her ghostwriter taking over). These books are written similar to the style of Stephanie Meyer. I would best describe these series as very complelling mystery-drama while telling the hardships of a life story. Fiction Based and very hard to put down!
