Looking for Books to Read?

I'm looking for some good books to read. I like books about fantasy type creatures (like vampires and werewolfs, fairys, etc) but I also like a bit of romance mixed in. Books about magic are cool too. I'm open to pretty much everything so if you could give some suggestions then that would be great. Please if it's not to much trouble, could you just give a little description, just so I know what the book is about...

Books that I've read and enjoyed:

Twilight/New Moon/Eclipse - Stephanie Meyer

Airhead - Meg Cabot

The Prophecy of the Stones - Flavia Bujor

A Great and Terrible Beauty/Rebel Angels/The Sweet Far Thing - Libba Bray

The Host - Stephanie Meyer

The Vampire Diaries - L.J Smith

Ophelia - Lisa Klien

City of Bones/City of Ashes - Cassandra Clare

Marked/Chosen/Betrayed - P.C Cast And Kristen Cast

    Kelly Armstrong has written an amazing fantasy series called the Women of the Otherworld. There are all kinds of fantasy races, like werewolves, vampires, necromancers, sorcerors, witches, and half-demons. There is also romance, but not and roses romance, if you know what I mean. There are eight books so far. Bitten, Stolen, Dime Store Magic, Industrial Magic, Haunted, Broken, No Humans Involved, and Personal Demons. I hope this helped! Happy reading!

    I love Meg Cabot (Heather Wells & Queen of Babble) and Sophie Kinsella's (Shopaholic [soon to be movie] & Remember Me) books. I am in the process of reading Emily Giffin's (Something Borrowed & Something Blue, Baby Proof) books. They are all great authors!

    For a young adult I recommend Meg Cabot's young adult books. She is the best author. Also best selling. She wrote tons of books including the Princess Diaries (Movies based on her books), Mediator (upcoming movie), 1-800-Missing (TV show based on her books), Jinx, and more. She has adult books too, so you can grow with her.

    If you want more info or meg cabot's website email me.

    Here's an interesting few books:

    the Black Angel - John Connolly

    Atlantis/Crusader Gold - David Gibbins (hey, it has some romance in it...)

    Hardboiled Wonderland and The End of the World - Haruki Murakami

    White Noise - Don DeLillo

    (I know, I know... all male authors. But hey, I'd give you a copy of mine if they were finished; if you like horror and magic, you'll love mine! But I'm afraid you'll have to wait a while, though...)

    The Stephanie Meyer books are good.

    There is also a little book called Companions of the Night that contains vampires and romance.

    Source(s): I have a friend who loves vampire books. She says these are the best.

    its a horror novel but has a great monster/ creature.

    It's At Gehenna's Door by Peter Beere.

    i would recommend it to anyone, its one of those books that every time you read it there are little plots that you didn't notice the first time you read it.

    Happy reading
