Rebounding from Twilight

A Listmania! list by H. H.
The list author says: "-Over 100 recommended books- After finishing the Twilight series, I began hunting for other YA books to fill the void. Of everything I've read so far, these are the ones I liked enough to recommend. I've ranked them and put my favorites at the top. Most have sequels or are part of a series, but I've only included the first book so I could make my list longer. Most of them are young adult fantasy romances (vampires, werewolves, fairies). I hope this is helpful!"
