Does anyone know any books that are as good as Twilight?

Not nessarily vampire books, but as good romance wise. Like with the words. Something that justsuck you in and you can't put it down, and makes you fall in love with the characters? I have read the Sookie Stackhouse series, and I liked it, but not as much. Does anyone know aything as good as Twilight romance wise?

  • I am Twilight obsessed as well. Before Twilight I was obsessed with The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley. There is also a prequel and a sequel.

  • Trippyhippy, there are several books in the Mists of Avalon setting, 5 or 6 I think.
    OP - are you looking for something vampire related? Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series is really good if you don't mind something significantly more adult.

  • Why not read "The Host" by the same author as the "Twilight" series?

  • If you just want romance...The Notebook or Nights in Rodanthe. Anything by Nicholas Sparks.

  • If you like Vampire novels then you must read The Vampire Chronicles by Ann Rice. I loved the Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory. If you read that and like it you will probably like her other books as well.

  • "Trippyhippy, there are several books in the Mists of Avalon setting, 5 or 6 I think."

    I think it is 4 total and the last one had to be finished by her assistant because she died.

  • actually there are 6 books in the Avalon set by Marion Zimmer Bradley and they are all fabulous even the ones written not solely by her.

    Mists of Avalon
    The Forest House
    Lady of Avalon
    Priestess of Avalon
    Ancestors of Avalon
    Ravens of Avalon

    i also recommend anything by Laurell K Hamilton, Kelley Armstrong, Kim Harrison, and Kresley Cole if you are looking for paranormal romances they are at the top of the heap in my opinion

  • Never even heard of the last two. Where they put out after her death? I never looked to see if anything else got released after the fourth one was released because she was dead. I am totall going to go buy those two today. You will apreciate this, My DH asked me to marry him at the top of the Tor in Glastobury, England (Avalon). It was the perfect spot.
