My Twilight Bookshelf: Books For Twilight Fans

We’ve all read the The Twilight Saga multiple times (let’s face it), and many of us can’t bear to favour another book over our beloved Twilight, but there are some great books out there for Twilight fans to enjoy. My bookshelf contains some awesome finds that have been recommended or that I stumbled upon that I think Twilight fans would love to read. Come on, you know Breaking Dawn just doesn’t seem to hold up on the 12th reading – so try some of these:

1. The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins

Brief Summary: Futuristic setting in which each “district” selects contestants for the annual “Hunger Games” competition. Contestants literally have to fight to the death for the right to live their life. Katniss Everdeen, the main character, competes with Peta Mellark from her district and the two form a bond during the competition.

Why Twilight Fans Will Love It: Katniss Everdeen is the heroine and while different to Bella, you can instantly picture Kristen Stewart playing this role. The rights to the movie have recently been bought – so who knows what will happen there. This is an action-packed novel that will instantly grab you. The sequel, Catching Fire, is even better.

2. The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones – Cassandra Clare

Brief Summary: 16-year-old Clary Fray lives in urban New York and discovers the world of demons and shadowhunters. She’s more tangled up in their world that she thinks, and meets Jayce Wayland who changes everything.

Why Twilight Fans Will Love It: The whole intrigue of the Edward and Bella relationship from Twilight is present in this book. It isn’t hokey at all and really creates a visual story that you can delve into. There’s so much going on in this fast-paced novel that you won’t be able to put it down.

3. House Of Night: Marked – P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast

Brief Summary: Zoey Redbird discovers that she is a vampire and must attend a special school called the House of Night. She has to leave behind everything she knows and enter a new life. Zoey lives at the school and meets tons of other fledgling vampires, but she turns out to be a little bit different from her peers.

Why Twilight Fans Will Love It: For the most obvious reason, the subject matter – vampires. It’s written for young adults and teens but I’d say anyone can enjoy it. Zoey is a very likeable character and the honesty that comes with her voice makes the world she becomes a part of more believable.

There are so many other books for Twilight fans to suggest, but 3 at a time seems like enough to be working with. If you’re looking for books that portray a similar kind of relationship that Stephenie Meyer crafted between Edward and Bella in Twilight, then try books by Nicholas Sparks and Sarah Dessen.
