If you’ve walked past the library lately, maybe you’ve noticed the bulletin board display “Life After Twilight.” Stephenie Meyer’s vampire romance has been such a popular series that many students were sad to finish Breaking Dawn, the fourth and final installment in the saga of Bella and Edward’s star-crossed relationship. With New Moon hitting movie theaters in November, Twilight mania shows no signs of slowing down. But in the meantime, if you’re looking for another supernatural love story, check out one of these titles:
Swoon by Nina Malkin: In rural Connecticut, when seventeen-year-old Dice tries to exorcise a seventeenth-century man who is possessing her cousin Pen, she inadvertently makes him corporeal–and irresistible.
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater: In all the years she has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house, Grace has been particularly drawn to an unusual yellow-eyed wolf who, in his turn, has been watching her with increasing intensity.
Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith: When multiple murders in Austin, Texas, threaten the grand re-opening of her family’s vampire-themed restaurant, seventeen-year-old, orphaned Quincie worries that her best friend-turned-love interest, Keiren, a werewolf-in-training, may be the prime suspect.
And for a humorous twist on the vampire theme, try The Reformed Vampire Support Group by Catherine Jinks or Suck it Up by Brian Meehl.
