Favourite paranormal + scifi YA

Alpha Reader "dee"
The list author says: "These books are the epitome, bees knees, coolest cats on the YA paranormal/scifi scene.

If you liked Stephenie Meyer, but suspect there's something better out there... here is proof-positive! The YA paranormal/scifi scene has come leaps and bounds since 'Twilight' - now feast your reader's eye on these beauties."

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, Book 1)
Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, Book 1)
"The most unique Vampire series out at the moment. Ms. Mead beautifully blends ancient myth with teen melodrama in this wonderful series. Rose is an impressive warrior protagonist, and the romance is quite risqué and unique in the YA genre. Must-read if you like vampires!"

The Morganville Vampires, Vol. 1 (Glass Houses / The Dead Girls' Dance)
"It's actually a really clever premise - vampire social experiment in which humans and vampires co-exist in a special-made town. Mayhem ensues. This is one of the smartest YA series out at the moment."
White Cat (Curse Workers, Book 1)
White Cat (Curse Workers, Book 1)
"It's like a magic YA version of the movie 'Momento'. You'll keep guessing, but you won't figure it out until the very last page... mind-bending brilliance!"
The Summoning
The Summoning
"Kelley Armstrong rules the adult paranormal scene with her 'Women of the Otherworld' series... now see her effortlessly switch readerships in this impressive trilogy (that has a new spin-off for 2011!) Werewolves, necromancers and demons - oh my! This is another smart YA paranormal read about a science experiment gone horribly wrong. And it has a love triangle - woot!"
The Awakening (Darkest Powers)

The Reckoning (Darkest Powers)

The Forest of Hands and Teeth
The Forest of Hands and Teeth
"These are not your typical zombie books. Ryan writes a dystopian, post-apcolyptic extravaganza with a love triangle at it's sorrowful centre. Brilliant!"
The Dead-Tossed Waves (Forest of Hands and Teeth, Book 2)
The Dead-Tossed Waves (Forest of Hands and Teeth, Book 2)
Shiver

"Brilliance. Sheer brilliance. A new fairy-tale spin on the old werewolf myth... boy meets girl, boy is a werewolf, can these two ever get their timing right? Amazing."
Linger (Wolves of Mercy Falls, Book 2)
Linger (Wolves of Mercy Falls, Book 2)
Blood and Chocolate
Blood and Chocolate
"A very sexy YA paranormal read. Seriously, this one gets steamy and delicious (while remaining PG-13... barely!). A werewolf tale with a twist."
Matched
Matched
"A dystopian book about a world ruled by order and perfection... when even your soul-mate is mapped out for you, what is left to choose? It will make you rage against the machine and question 'the man' while also warming your heart for the tender romance."
Devil's Kiss
Devil's Kiss
"An angel book done well. In Chadda's book, angels are not all they're cracked up to be... they wreak plague and havoc and it's down to one girl and her knights to stop the worst arc-angel of them all."
The Hunger Games (Book 1)
The Hunger Games (Book 1)
"If you haven't read 'The Hunger Games' yet... what's wrong with you? A movie is in the works and these books will only get BIGGER. Jump on the bandwagon now while you can still claim cool."
Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, Book 2)
Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, Book 2)
Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games)
Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games)
Hold Me Closer, Necromancer (Necromancer Series Book 1)
Hold Me Closer, Necromancer (Necromancer Series Book 1)
"A funny, gross-out paranormal book about raising the dead and gettin' busy with a wolf girl. Hilarious and refreshing! Lish McBride writes like Joss Whedon - that should be enough to tempt you!"
The Reformed Vampire Support Group
The Reformed Vampire Support Group
"A very different look at vampires with an interesting metaphor at the centre of their existence. Jinks is writing in a vampire back-lash... so if you're sick of vamps 'sparkling', this is the book for you! Darkly funny and painfully good."
