The Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer
I think every teenager and her mother read these books and paved the way for complete vampire domination. Then came the movies that were soooooo bad, they were good.
Reading these books as a teen, you can’t help but feel jealous of Bella. She’s got these two hotties after her, she gets to snog Jacob’s face off, shag Edward AND gets to turn into a vampire.
Read this as an adult you see all the red flags from Edward, Jacob and Bella… and don’t even get me started on Jacob imprinting on Rasputin or whatever she’s called.
The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare
I definitely need to give these books a re-read. I vaguely remember at the end of I think book one, Clary finds out Jace is her brother…oh spoiler alert… and another one here… he’s not really her brother… I think.
This was a great urban fantasy / YA and would definitely recommend. It’s also been turned into a TV series which I would recommend too.
The Graceling Trilogy by Kristen Cashore
I think I read this series over two days. They were incredible. I really wanted to be Katsa and was completely in love with Po (I think that’s his name… it’s been over 15 years since I read it). I remember crying my eyes out after reading the 1st one so I’m guessing something bad happens. Another re-read is in order!
The Chronicles of Ixia by Maria V Snyder
I just couldn’t get this authors name right… how many times I called her Synder instead of Snyder is beyond me.
Again, an incredible series that had be hooked. A very strong series with other series’s by the author that interlinks with this. The glass series is probably on par with this one.
Loved the name Valek too and wanted to call my kid it because of this series… then I watched the conjuring 2 which quashed that idea for ever!
Have you read any of these? What was your favourite books from your teenage years?
Thanks for reading,
