Re: i love vampire books but what else is good

i had the same problem, so i read books like Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick, My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent, and Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia.  All three have absolutely nothing to do with vampires and they're all great books:smileyhappy:



there ain't no rest for the wicked.

Re: i love vampire books but what else is good

I definitely agree with all of Zoey's recomendations.  I know that every time I go to a bookstore half the section is dedicated to vampires, so it's difficult to get outside the genre.  Other books I think you will absolutely love are:

 

Wicked Lovely (series) by Melissa Marr

The Heir Series by Cinda Williams Chima (Also her new book the Demon King is fantastic) 

anything by Maria V. Snyder

anything by John Green

anything by Ellen Hopkins

Going Bovine by Libba Bray

The Gemma Doyle trilogy by Libba Bray

Tithe, Valiant, and Ironside by Holly Black

 

If you need any more suggestions just look in my library.  :smileyvery-happy:

Re: i love vampire books but what else is good

The House of Night seires by P.C Cast and Kristen Cast is amazing. I love all of the characters lol and there is a really good plot. I mean there is a little to much love/sex but over all it's a really good kick-ass type book. :smileytongue:

Re: i love vampire books but what else is good

The Night World series by L.J. Smith is really good. It does have some Vampyres in it, but it also deals with witches, shapeshifters, werewolves, and spirits. There are nine books out now, Strange Fate will be out later this year. It all ties together. I loved it almost as much as House of Night.

 

Percy Jackson and the Olympians is really good. I'm on book 4 right now. But its kinda like Harry in the way it is told. I like how they stick really closely to the gods and goddess.

 

The Host by Stephanie Meyers is amazing. I absolutely love it. It has nothing to do with vamps or witches or anything but a really good read!!!

 

Hatty Potter!! I loved them

 

That's all i can think of. I'm pretty much stuck on vamps right now lol!

Re: i love vampire books but what else is good

I love those book too, but the book series that has really realed me in is  the Vampire Acadamy series by: Richelle Mead. Love it and i get so iritated when it takes a while for the next book to come out, I got one of my friends hooked on them too. So you should deffinatly try them if you like those series.
