New material for twilight fan :?

I have read and fell in love with twilight and therefore once I finished the saga read every vampire book related e.g. vampire diaries, vampire academy, true blood series,hon. series the list could go on.

I was wondering whether anyone had new material, or could help me to move away from reading the same sort of books.

Sorry if I say books you already read but I would reccomend The Mortal Instruments Series, Night World Series, The Mediator Series, The Hunger Games (If you haven't already read them do me a favor and read them!! Soon!!), Books by Elizabeth Chandler, Before I fall, The Maze Runner, Dash and LIly's Book of Dares and so so many many many more!! If you want to know more you can click on my username ZoeyRedbird and then click on the See my B&N profile button and you can see the My Library section where I have rated lots of books that you can enjoy. There is also an Ultimate Book Reccomendation List thread that you can find in the green area where all the posts are that has loads of great books and a list of them are on page 10. I hope that helps and if you have any more questions feel free to ask away! =)

Re: New material for twilight fan :?

I'm going to suggest non-vampire related books because honestly there's loads of good books out there aren't vampire related.

 

Here's my list

 

-The book thief-Mark Zusak

-The Messenger- Mark Zusak

- Mortal Instrument Series- Cassandra Clare

-Make Lemonade- Virginia Wolf

-Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy- Douglass Adams (HILARIOUS and I'm not a sci fi fan)

-Before I fall- Lauren Oliver

- Jane Eyre- Charlotte Bronte (classic romance book with drama)

-Rebecca- Daphne DuMaurier (suspense/romance w/ drama)

-House of the Scorpion- Nancy Farmer (doesn't sound good but really is and has action, drama, romance)

-Don't die my love- Lurlene McDaniel (just a cheesy, sad romance book)

-The Host- Stephanie Meyer (it was ok)

- Peferct Chemistry and Rules of Attraction- Simone Elkes

-19 MInutes- Jodi Picoult

-The Pact- Jodi Picoult

-My Sister's Keeper- Jodi Picoult

-Asleep- wendy raven Mcnair

- Jellicoe Road- Melina Marchetta

-Body of Christopher Creed- Carol Plum-ucci

-What happened to Lani Garver- Carol Plum-Ucci

-Gone series- Michael Grant

-Gemma Doyle trilogy- Libba Bray

-Darkest Powers Trilogy-Kelly Armstrong

-Maximum Ride Series- James Patterson (very poorly written but funny w/ action and romance)

Re: New material for twilight fan :?

This is one of the best series I've read in a long time and I would definitely recommend it to any Twilight fan, because they're loaded with action, excitement and romance too.  :smileyhappy:

 

 

The Hunger Games (Hunger Games Series #1)

  

Catching Fire (Hunger Games Series #2)

  

Mockingjay (Hunger Games Series #3)

Try some Scott Weterfeld -- Have you read Peeps?  Or the Midnighter series?

 

And don't forget Neal Shusterman.  The Everlost books are great.

The Vampire's Warden 

 

It was a flash in the moonlight, a blur of motion like I’d never witnessed before. No human had the capacity to move like that. When I found myself face-to-face with him there in the meadow, I knew without a doubt that the journal was authentic. I knew that my grandfather hadn’t been crazy at all. 

Because a foot away from me stood a vampire.


Sarah Brightman reads her grandfather's journal in stunned disbelief. What was once her grandfather's responsibility has passed to her father and now to her. She has become the Warden. Her life will never be the same.

Author of The Vampire's Warden, available on the Nook and the soon-to-be-released The Vampire's Curse: Book Two of the Undead in Brown County series.
