We're getting a lot of 10 to 12 year olds who have read Twilight and want to read something similar. Any suggestions? Maybe something with some supernatural and/or a little romance? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
Tween vampire romance suggestions:
Braced 2 Bite by Serena Robar (first of a series)
The Silver Kiss by Annette Curtis Klause
Boys that Bite by Mari Mancusi
other kinds of light romantic paranormal for tweens:
Owl in Love by Patrice Kindl
Things Not Seen by Andrew Clements
Old Magic by Marianne Curley
There are lots more, but that's what I'm coming up with off the top of my head.
If it's the supernatural romance that draws them (as opposd to the sparkly vampires), I'd suggest Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr. (Or Tithe by Holly Black, but that's actually more mature and would probably be better for the 13+ kids.)
Both books are part of a trilogy. (Well, I think the WL series might actually turn into a quartet, but... You know.)
I've heard good things about Kelly Armstrong's YA series as well, but not having read them I can't say for certain. (I do know they have a werewolf and possibly a vampire.)
There's also The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker. It was described to me as a "Victorian ghost busters" but that actually takes a backseat to the romance between the main characters. It's the kind of book I'd have loved to read at that age. It's also the first book in a series, but the rest isn't published yet.
(I can think of a few more books that'd fit the supernatural/romance/10-12year-old bill, but they're not the books I'd recommend immediately on hearing "Twilight readalike".)
