I just finished Linger and I am stumped on what I should read next. I feel like I did when I finished Twilight, that I could never love another book so much! I recently read Fallen, I liked it but didn't think it was anything stand out. Some other books/series I have also read: Hunger Games, Vampire Academies, Sookie Stackhouse, Graceling, Beautiful Creatures, Harry Potter.. I am in the mood for some sweet romance like Shiver and Linger, the YA paranormal variety I suppose. Suggestions?
Have you read the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare (first book is City of Bones)? I really like the way that the story has you rooting for the characters to be together. This series has a forbidden love element, but is not lacking in action either.
If you want just sweet romance without the action, try Rachel Hawthorne's Dark Guardian series, starting with Moonlight. Each book follows a different female shifter finding her truemate. I prefer my shifter books to be a bit more balanced between love and action (like Rachel Vincent's adult werecat series starting with Stray), but Dark Guardians definitely invokes a milder Twilight love story feel if you like the awww factor.
If you really like the "destined for each other" vibe and wouldn't mind trying something a bit more adult or fantasy, give C.L. Wilson's Tairen Soul series a try (the hero is a shapeshifting flying cat, so there is a nod to PNR). That series is absolutely all about finding the one person that is your destiny, and it follows the same couple through 4 (book 5 comes out soon) books, and they have a really great love story. First book is called Lord of the Fading Lands.
Have you read the Iron King by Julie Kagawa? It is wonderful. There is also a little Novella called the Winter Passage that follows the Iron King with the sequel the Iron Daughter due out August 1st. It has the romance and the paranormal. I'm a huge twilight and Mortal instruments fan too. Hope this helps.
I loved Maggie Stiefvaters Lament. I haven't read Ballad yet, but I'm sure it rocks. I'm kind of in your situation, too. I just finished Linger. I loved Linger and Shiver. i think shes making a third book called Forever. I was also stumped, but I was thinking about reading Perchance to Dream by Lisa Mantchev. HOPE THIS HELPS! :)
Shiver I just started to read Shiver and was wondering if Linger was as good. I also hate when I finished a series of books that I have really enjoyed. The Stephenie Meyer Books were so good. I have been following the posts here for some reading ideas for myself.
Ooo, you could read the House of Night series. They're pretty amazing, well at least the first two are. I just got finished with the second one, and I'm pretty into it now.
About any other books? I have no idea. Like, you have the exact same book taste as me. I'm not even kidding. I've read almost all the ones you've posted. Uhm, like Slow Reader said, the Wake series is pretty good. *goes to look at book shelf* There's The Lovely Bones, Hush Hush, Elsewhere, The Darkest Powers series, anything by Ellen Hopkins is godly, Sara Dessen is a good writer. I can't think of many more.

I agree with Veggie: Melissa Marr's Series: Wicked Lovely (first in series) read them in order) Kailin Gow: Frost Series Kelly Creagh: Nevermore Sophie Jordan: Firelight Holly Black: Tithe, Valiant and Ironside: A modern faery's tale Cyn Balog: Faery Tale Aprilynne Pike: Wings and Spells That should be a good start!
