If you haven’t yet read the Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer, you should. All 4 books are out. This is their order:

Plus there’s a companion piece to Eclipse entitled The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. Wondering who is Bree Tanner and why does she get a novella? There’s also a guide to the world, The Twilight Saga: The Official Guide.

  1. Have any of you heard of The Created series? If so, what did you think?

  2. Beautiful demons by Sarra Cannon

  3. another series i liked was Divergent. It’s somewhat like twilight.

  4. Crossed Stars written by Christy Blow is amazing. It is like Twilight but with angels. The handsome Cassiel will leave you looking to the stars for your own guardian angel.

  5. purple11sparkle

    Boys that bite is a really good book somewhat like Twilight

  6. Heya. I think tou should consider L.J Smith’s ‘Nightworld’ series on your list. Dinner with a Vampire by Abigail Gibbs is also a must read. For something more mature, check out Nalini Singh

  7. Anonymous

    Fallen series is also exactly like that. You will be shocked by the similarities. At first I actually thought she had Lauren Kate, the author of fallen series violated the copyright claims!

    • i am bob

      i think every one here should read the chronicles of vladimir tod. it is about a ” vegetarian ” vampire like the cullens. not into a love story till 3rd book. 5 books in all

  8. Nora Roberts books The circle trilogy: Morrigan’s Cross (book 1), Dance of the Gods (book 2), Valley of Silence (book 3) are an absolute must read and I would go as far as saying they are even better than the Twilight books and I’m a fan!!

  9. i didn’t much like divergent series found it a bit boring
    the twilight series were awsm then i liked the selection series

  10. What’s the selection series good

    • Oh so I only like three or more books so I don’t like novels thy are boring because you think they’re supposed to be a second book but there’s not and then you have A big suspense

  11. The lux series is my absolute fave, I love twilight and the lux series is better, Daemon is my fave book boyfriend
