    The House of Night stories are really good.

    Kelley Armstrong wrote a Young Adult series called Darkest Powers. It's actually a part of her Otherworld series but is good on its own. I haven't gotten to Otherworld yet but Darkest Powers was fabulous.

    http://www.kelleyarmstrong.com/mSeries.htm

    There's also the Evernight series.

    Anne Rice wrote some great Vampire novels.

    They're all fantasy novels.

    If you like the vampire thing there are two series that I really enjoyed (more so than Twilight) which are: The Sookie Stackhouse Novels by Charlaine Harris & The Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith.

    They are both tv shows, too. True Blood (the first one) is on HBO and The Vampire Diaries is a new series on CW this fall.

    If you liked Twilight try The Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead.

    If you're into fantasy/teen novels give Tamora Pierce a try. The Lioness saga is the best. Also in the same genre try anything by Garth Nix.
