Most teen girls I know “loved” the Twilight series and want something else like it. Personally, I have not found anything exactly like the Twilight saga, but if you check out Barnes and Noble or Amazon there is an entire genre now called Teen Paranormal Romance. If you like vampires, but are not necessarily into romance, there are still a number of great books featuring vampires that you might enjoy.
Night Road by A.M. Jenkins. How do vampires learn to be vampires? In this novel, Cole, an extraordinarily conscientious vampire, and Sandor, a more impulsive acquaintance, spend a few months on the road, trying to train a young man who recently joined their ranks. The problem is that the new recruit doesn’t want to be vampire.
Vampire High by Douglas Rees takes an ordinary teen and plops him in the Vlad Dracul Magnet School. Cody soon discovers that his fellow students all are dark-haired, pale-skinned, and supernaturally strong. How will he ever fit in? A sequel, Vampire High: Sophomore Year is also a fun read.
The Reformed Vampire Support Group by Catherine Jenkins will make you laugh. In this humorous story, 15-year-old Nina has been stuck for 51 years in a boring support group for vampires. Nothing exciting has ever happened to them until one of the group’s members is murdered and the others try to solve the crime. I never knew vampires could be funny until I read this book!
Hopefully, these will satisfy anyone’s need for more vampire stories. Tired of vampires? You can always switch to werewolves! Try Shiver and Linger by Maggie Stiefvater and follow the romance of Grace, who falls in love with Sam, a werewolf who discovers he can take a human form for a short time each year.
