Not For Twilight Fan Girls…


I know a lot of you have read the Twilight books and loved it. But for those of us who’ve read the Twilight books and hated them (like me) I’m looking for some requests.

Here’s the situation - my friends and I were loitering at a local bookstore and came up to this display of all Twilight books, merchandise, and all the other YA Vampire Romance Twilight rips which definitely got our tongues wagging. As a joke, I told them that I was going to read all of these rip-offs to see just how many of them were actually better than Twilight (it can’t be that hard to do). I didn’t think I’d take myself seriously: can you guys please recommend some of these books to be published since Twilight that are actually worth the time to read?

I’m looking for originality of plot (Twilight, by the way, had been done before. A popular example? Buffy The Vampire Slayer - see teenaged human girl, falling in love with a hot vampire), decent writing (I’m not an English major, so I don’t know enough to really be nit-picky, but I know what sucks and what doesn’t), and something that doesn’t make me hate myself for reading it.

Thanks, and if you Twilight fan girls (or boys) who read this and hate me for it even though I warned you… I will actively ignore you.
