Twilight Read-Alikes

Posted in Twilight at 9:39 pm by Bridget

One of my favorite Twilight Read-Alikes is City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. It isn’t exactly a paranormal romance and it doesn’t have the green rainy brooding feel of Twilight, but it has some of the same appeal as far as hot guys and monsters go. There’s quite a bit more action so for those of us who are huge Buffy fans, this makes it even more satisfying. Plus, there are demon hunters! I know, how perfect can one book get? I’m so excited for the third one to come out!

Has anyone else tried this series? I feel like it hasn’t quite gotten the attention it deserves and I’m not sure why. 

Also, I just discovered this awesome link on Meg Cabot’s blog for people looking for read alike authors. It’s a read alike map!

Have a great holiday!


p.s. Janet, is that how you spell Read-Alike? It looks really weird, but I just did an online survey of libraries and they all do it differently.

    I read City of Bones a while ago – thanks for the reminder. I enjoyed reading it and was going to look-out for a sequel but then it slipped to the wayside. I remember the beginning really pulled me in.

    Sure, “read-alike” looks good to me. The literature map is really cool! It’s great that they include YA authors. I also noticed there’s a music map. I can’t say I agree with all of the matchings, but it’s definitely good for discussion and for finding new books/music/media.

    The thing that’s keeping me from reading Cassandra Clare’s fiction is Cassandra Clare’s fan fiction.
