Good YA Vampire books...

Evernight and Stargazer (2nd on in the series)- Claudia Gray... I just finished the 2nd.
Blue Bloods- Melissa De la Cruz
Blue is for Nightmares Series- Laurie Stolarz, not a vampire book, but amazing none the less.

It has probably been metioned on this thread already before but i think it sounds really good and i am going to walk into a good bookstore and buy it.

BLURB:

First rule: Don't call them vampires. That's just a ridiculous term. The proper label is parasite-positives, or "peeps." Maybe some people think that peeps have a few things in common with vampires of legend, but New York City is a long way from the Carpathian Mountains.

Second rule: Whatever you do, don't forget the anathema, when peeps start hating the things they used to love. The anathema hurts, but in a good way.

These rules to live by are a part of Cal Thompson's daily life. Cal is a peep hunter, sworn to protect New York from the spread of the parasite that, well, makes people act like vampires, if you have to use that word. Cal himself was infected with the parasite, but on him it works differently. He has the superpowers and the urge to feed, but he can still live among those who don't carry the parasite. In a quest to track down the woman who gave him the parasite, he peels away the layers of a mystery involving rats, cats, writing on a wall, and a building with more than a health club in its basement.


I LOVE PEEPS! The Last Days is really good too, even though Cal isn't in it. But vampires bring about the end of the world by forming a rock band? AWESOME!

Vampire Academy was AMAZING, in my opinion. It's not Twilight. Nothing is, really. But the second two books made me cry and gave me goosebumps. Definitely tough it through the first one to get to the second two.

I'm DYING for the fourth one to come out.

I'm excited to see that the Vampire Academy series has been mentioned here lol! I absolutely love that series! It isn't really like Twilight, but I love them both! They are both amazing book series that I would highly recommend :)!

I also like the House of Night series!

I don't think any book will be able to compare to the Twilight series because Twilight was truly the book that got me excited to read! I didn't care for reading so much until after I read the first book then flew through the rest of the series! Twilight got me excited to find more books! I have found so many other books that are also my favorites, but they are all loved in different ways :)!

I agree with you on almost everything ;) I use to like House of Night but by the 5th book I became bored. I wish the author would only make it a 6 book series vs. 12. So far no book can hold a candle for my love of Twilight nor do I think anything well. However I have read a lot of books since then and there are ones that I had to buy and place on my library books shelf. I think my Twilight shelf needed some friends :) . Vampire Academy series was one, non vampire but definitely worth the read. Matched trilogy ,Fallen series.

I can understand what you said about the HoN series! It is a very long series and I hate how it's dragged out instead of giving each book a good ending! Sometimes it gets a bit confusing since lots of the storylines are spread out through the books and maybe it's just me, but I forget what's going on and I get confused whenever I start the latest book of the series :lol:!

Desiree, you're a saint :lol: . I become bored with House of Night in book 3. Never finished it. Now Vampire Academy is as yummy as Twilight Series. They are technically still about vampire though a different "species" of vampire. Never the less I love the action packed series of VA. I haven't read the 2nd booked of Matched though it is in my too long "to be read" list. Fallen series bored me a bit too but book 3 is also on my list.
