I am a big fan of the Twilight series. I just finished it and I am looking for another book to read. Preferably something kind of like the Twilight series. Do you have any suggestions???

I don't know if you've read them but the Vampire Kisses series by Ellen Schrieber is very popular and continues with the whole vampire theme. I think there are four books in the series.
I have to say that the first 'Vampire Kisses' was everything but good. Yes, it may follow the wonderful vampire theme that Stephanie Meyer has laid out, but it definately doesn't live up to the theme.
I found the book meaningless. There were a few good chapters here and there (There was a grand total of two chapters that were actually enjoyable.)
If you are a Twilight fan, you'd like Blood And Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause. It is a very good book, and there is a movie made from it. I haven't seen it yet, but I hope I will.

it's by laurie stolarz she's made 4 book series blue is for nightmares,white is for magic,silver is for secrets,red is for rememberance! there really awsome books they have a little bit of everything mixed in with love romance,spell's and magic,highschool issues,nightmares and lot's more i promise you will love this books and if you are one of those twilight,new moon and eclipse fan reader peoples i promise when you finish reading all 4 series it will make it alot less harder for you to worry about the 4th series to stephinie meyer i promise!!!
Although these books don't tie in very well with the Twilight series I can't help but agree that they are brilliant books.
While Twilight is more mythological, The Laurie Stolarz books are more of a real life Harry Potter.

I have the entire collection of the Nightmares books, But I've only read the first one so far, and I plan I re-reading it soon because It's been a while since I read it. I really want to finish the series, but just havent gotten around to it- because I've picked up other books that just caught my interest more. But is this series truly really good? =) Let me know, because maybe I'll start reading the books again sooner that I thought =]
They truly are.

What I have heard from other sites the Vampire Kisses books were gothic stereotypical.
I plan on getting the books even though thats generally what they are mostly about but I never heard if they were actually good beyond that point. Are they?
There is only a few chapters that are interesting, the rest is boring.

The Twilight Series is very much about Romance first the fact that many of the characters are vampires is important but still secondary.
In terms of a romantic theme Vampire Kisses is similar. Since both characters are really in love with each other however it seems a younger version perhaps "Twilight Light" If you are a mature reader this is probably too young for you.
The Vampire Diaries Series written in the Early 90s is being re-released. This is probably the closest thing that has given me the "Twilight Vibe" which is odd because I had read it 10 years ago but had re-read it recently. The leading lady has a more overt personality then Bella and the Vampire is not perfect as Edward is.
Blue Bloods and Masquarade by Melissa De La Cruz -- Develops a Vampire World that is interesting and the characters are somewhat romantically linked. The author seems to be writing several series so books are coming out slowly.
Morganville Vampires Series -- Has about the same amount of darkness in terms of bad dangerous things happening. The characters do have some romance but still not as much as in Twilight.
Silver Kiss(es?) / Sunshine are both books where humans meet and develop a relationship with vampires. I liked them both.
Although they are not vampire themed
I enjoyed Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr & Tithe/Ironside (skipped valient) by Holly Black
Didn't Really enjoy
Marked - by PC Cast -- Didn't really care for this one not going to finish the series
Vampire Academy -- More about friendship and fending off danger. Not too much romance. I didn't care for the main character.
Circu Du Freak -- couldnt get into it ... maybe I will pick it up later ...
On The Reading List
Vampire Beach, Sweep and Wicked.
Sorry for the typos and such -- I was tying in jumbles trying to organize stuff but I am tired and I need to sleep!!!
