Re: similar books to twilight

Vampire Beach wasn't that good. I read the first two books and I just didn't enjoy it that much.
 
The Sweep series is REALLY good. I love it!
 
Wicked was very good, too!

Re: similar books to twilight

The book Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause was amazing!! I couldn't put it down!
 
Blood and Chocolate is a book about 16 year old werewolf named Vivian who lost her father (who was the pack leader) in a fire. The pack moves up north to start a new life but everyones fighting and cannot decide who should be the new leader. Then Vivian meets a human boy and starts to have feelings towards him. The pack does not approve of Vivian see Adian(the human). But will Adian still stick around after he learns that Vivian's a werewolf?

Re: similar books to twilight

The Sweep books ARE really good. There a series that once you start you have no choice but to keep going.

Vampire Book Descussion

I just got into vampire books. Of course the twilight series was unbelievable and you can't go wrong with dracula.  Any other good vampire books?

I didn't have to look to know who it was; this is a voice I would know anywhere-know, and respond to, whether I was awake or asleep..or even dead, I'd bet. the voice I'd walk through fire for-or, less dramatically, slosh everyday through the cold and endless rain for.

vampier books (al the rave)

Several teens love the twilight serius, but what about all the other great vampire novles out there? It all stared with folk lengedns then moved on to be a great world famous book called Dracula.Then after some more vampiper books they made them into movies. Which brout popularity to monster movies. So why dose twilight get all the props? I admit it's a great stoory but not nesacarally the best vampire book. A few other recent good vampire books are Marked,Betrayed,Girls that Growl,and silver kiss. Just to say a few and these monster there lots of good other fantsy books with more mithical creaturs. So the thing i'm trying to ask is has any one noticed this? or is it just me?
P.S -sorry if i spelled things wrong
P.S.S - sorry if i have insulted any one opions

Re: similar books to twilight

Well, I have to admit that I haven't read too many vampire books besides the twilight series, but there's this one book I found at Borders once that was about a teen goth girl with diabetes who has a theory about vampires. I don't remember the name, but it sounds really interesting! Tell me if you know the name of this book, or if you know of other good vampire stories!

Re: similar books to twilight

Ok, I completely agree with those that say the vampire kisses series is not that great.  I have quite a list of recommendations that are so much better.  For instance, The Marked series is really fantastic, or there is a book called Boys that bite, that's kind of along the same lines as Twilight series.  There are also some books by R.L. Stein called the dangerous girls series, its not as... mature as the Twilight series, but it's still pretty good.  And finally, the Vampire Diaries series.  These are creepier than the Twilight series, but very very good.  Hope this helps!!

Re: similar books to twilight

I'm not sure if anyone has suggested this yet, but Interview with the Vampire is a AMAZING book. In fact all of Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles are great. As well as the traditional Dracula. Also The Historian is great, its got a lot of the myth of how Dracula became a vampire legend.

Re: similar books to twilight

Some people have been comparing the story line of The Vampire Diaries to Twilight, I havn't finished it yet, but its pretty good.

Re: similar books to twilight

I love the whole twilight series really I can't stop myself from reading them again and again! For something new I would recommend the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld (it's four books Uglies, Pretties, Specials, Extras). They have nothing to do with vampires at all but I found them to have the same keep the pages turning feeling as Twilight (although Twilight will always be my favorite).
 
Another series by Scott Westerfeld I really enjoyed was Midnighters (it's three books I believe). Both of the series Uglies and Midnighters mix in the under lying romantic story if that is what you are looking for, but that is not all they are about they are both really great adventure stories.
 
The last book I can think to recommend would be A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray. Again this book and the other ones I mentioned are not about Vampires, but what they had that was similar to the Twilight series was there underlying love story.
Jake: Yes. May the best MAN win.
Edward: Sounds about right . . . PUP.

Re: similar books to twilight

Vampire Kisses is a very good series. There are 4 books that go with that. Also "Got Fangs"&"Circus of the darned" is another 2 book series that is good easy reading.
 
Im working on Anne Rice stories right now, but thats just to hold me over until Breaking Dawn comes out!!! Cant Wait.
