    You've read Twilight, and if you're big into vampires there are lots of, let's face it, truly terrible books concerning them. Some vampires books that are actually good might be "Vampire Diaries" or the "Night World Trilogy", both by L.J. Smith. "The Morganville Vampires" series by Rachel Caine is a bit more explicit, and you might want to check with your parents before reading the "Vampire Academy" series by Richelle Mead, but those two books are really good!

    If mystery books are what you're craving, try :The Face on the Milk Carton" by Caroline B. Cooney, "The Invention of Hugo Cabret: by Brian Selzneck, or "Password: Murder" by Norah McClintok. Similarily, the "Harry Potter" books by J.K. Rowling are suspenseful and much better then the movies (in my opinion) and "The Summoning" by Kelly Armstrong has it, too.

    Two amazing books set in the Victorian ages are "A Great and Terrible Beauty" by Libba Bray and "Catherine, Called Birdy" by Karen Cushman. A separate historical novel about Canadian/ American history is "The Youngest Spy" by Barry McDivitt, which, despite it's boring cover, is actually really good.

    Would you like to check out some mythical books? If so try "Wicked Lovely" by Melissa Marr, or "Love is Hell" by a collaboration of authors. Fabulous books set in mace-up kingdoms are " The Goose Girl" by Shannon Hale and "The Swan Kingdom" by Zoe Marriott. Two peaceful books about death are "Ghost Child" by Eve Bunting and the must-read "The Five People You Meet in Heaven", written by Mitch Alborn. If you only read two books I give you please let them be "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins and "Uglies" by Scott Westerfeld, because they are just simply the best. Books. I've. Ever. Read.

    If you like animal books, the "Warriors" series by Erin Hunter or "The Tale of Despereaux" by Kate DiCamillo would be suffice. "I'd Tell You That I Love You But Then I'd Have To Kill You" by Ally Carter is not about animals but rather spys, and is quite good.

    More realistic books about teenage girls what you looking for? "Just Listen" by Sara Dessen, "Guitar Girl" by Sarra Manning, "Stargirl" by Jerry Spinelli, "Fame, Glory, and Other Things On My To-Do List" by Janette Rallison, "It's a Mall World After All" by Janette Rallison, "The Clique" by Lisi Harrison, "The Confessions of Georgia Nicholson" series by Louise Rennison and "One of Those Hideous Books Where the Mother Dies" by Sonia Sones are only a few. Add "Perfect" by Natasha Friend to the mix and voila! You got the perfect book mix.

    Hope it helped,
