The list author says: "After getting hooked on Twilight a little over a year ago, I have been on the hunt to find books with similar themes (romance, forbidden love, mystery, suspense, paranormal/supernatural themes). I have created this list to help other Twilight fans satisfy their urge for a book that will suck them in and leave them wanting more!"
"The series that started it all! Great YA book series with Vampires, Werewolves, mystery, forbidden love, danger, and action that will leave you reading well into the night! Great series of books to get reluctant readers hooked on books!"
"From author Stephanie Meyer of Twilight. This is more of an adult novel, playing with similar themes as Twilight- mystery, the paranormal, love, and suspense. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Instead of Vampires and Werewolves, this book deals with Earth after Alien take over. I enjoyed the love, emotion, and interesting take on Alien invasion."
"This is the first book of the triology. This series introduces us to Gemma Doyla and Katrik. Together, along with Gemma's friends from her new boarding schools, they unlock a fantasy world that threatens to change all their lives, unlocking the barriers between Earth and this magical, beautiful land, and leaving them with power, beauty, love, and even pain."
"Book #2 of the series. Here the girls delve deeper into the magical world they love to enter, the powers they are gaining, and the dangers that all this power has on their loves, the land, and the world they have come. I enjoyed the underlying theme of suppression during the victorian time period this story takes place in and the power and freedom this land has given these girls."
"This is the last book of the trilogy. Gemma has to find a way to restore power to the order and maintain the balance that her and her friends had upset. In trying to close the door and keep both worlds safe, we find the ultimate sacrifices that some are willing to make for love, power, and the future of our world."
"Very interesting quick read. This story is about ghosts/spirits that linger among us. I found this interesting- the themes of spirits lingering, taking over lost souls, and finding love and meaning to life."
"This is book #2 in the "Wolves of Mercy Falls" series. This is the follow-up to Shiver and due out July 20th, 2010. After Shiver has left you with chills, you will want to warm up and continue the story of forbidden love in "Linger"."
"Fallen Angels & forbidden love. This story has Edward and Bella written all over it. Bad boy with a past and at times, questionable intentions, and a good girl head over heels in love with something she knows she shouldn't be in love with. The follow-up book "Crescendo" is due out fall 2010."
"Another tale of Fallen Angels (4 book series), mystery, and love. There are also underlying themes of "crazies" (troubled teens at a military type school in haunted Savannah, re-incarnation, good and fallen angels, love and mystery. This book has some mixed reviews, but worth a read by those into the paranormal romance theme. The 2nd book is the series, Torment, is due out Oct 2010."
"Mystery surrounds this story of love and reunion. A preacher's daughter is drawn to the bad boy back in town. What is he really, what happened years ago that made him disappear, and will anyone be safe?"
