Vampires, Witches and Fairies! Oh my!

Ever since Twilight has come out there has been a trend in young adult literature to produce books about vampires, fairies, or ghosts. Apparently, this is called urban fantasy. Anyway, I have a lot of students who are looking for something to read after they finish the Twilight Series. Below are some suggestions that I hope you will find interesting.

If you think I have forgotten something please respond to this post. I am always looking for new books to order for the library.

  • The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
  • The Fetch by Laura Whitcomb

What about the Morganville Vampire Series? by Rachel Caine. Temping Fate by Esther Friesner. About a billion more I could name. Lol

Ms. I said...

I have never heard of Tempting Fate. Thanks for the suggestion!

Linda Joy Singleton said...

Thanks for recommending my DON'T DIE DRAGONFLY. There's a new edition of this book in the larger trade size and it includes a BONUS short story called DOMINIC's VOLCANO about the mysterious past of a favorite SEER character.

I'll add this blog to my links!

No worries. :) I have a ton, this is my favourite genre.

Ms. I said...

Laina, This genre is starting to grow on me :) Sometimes I find the books tired and the same ol' same ol' but I am looking forward to reading Raven and a few others.

Linda, Thanks for letting me know about the Dragonfly book. I'll have to order it for the library :-) And thanks for adding me to your links.
