Post-Breaking Dawn Reading List

For those of you languishing in post-Breaking Dawn reading doldrums, here’s a list of Smeyer-fan tested and approved titles to fill the void.

Modern Fantasy:

  • Oh. My. Gods, by Tera Lynn Childs: Phoebe’s mother remarries and moves them to a Greek island far, far, far away from her friends and that runner’s scholarship to USC she’s been wanting. Then, to add insult to injury, it turns out that every single other teen in her highschool is a descendant of the Greek gods, with supernatural powers. A fun, sweet modern fantasy good for pretty much any Twilight fan.
  • The Summoning, by Kelley Armstrong: The first in what promises to be one heck of a series. A huge cliffhanger ending, lots of supernaturally-abled teens (plus one werewolf!), great twists and turns — this one should keep you occupied for at least a weekend.
  • Wicked Lovely, by Melissa Marr: This one will make disappointed Team Jacob happy. Not because there are werewolves, but … well, read it and find out! Note: if it were a movie, it’d be rated PG-13.

Twisted Fairytales:

Just to top it all off, I highly recommend anything by Tamora Pierce or by Robin McKinley. Anything! They may be a little less angst-ridden, but both authors definitely knows how to tell a fantasy, an adventure, and a romance all rolled into one.

    Did anybody know that it was a crime not to suggest anything else?

    I loved East, and it does get better after reading it again. Have you read “Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow” by Jessica Day George? It is another version of the original fairy tale. But “East” is by far my favorite.
