Book Recco

I succumbed to the hype ... I bought the "Twilight" series this week - it's a set of four books, "Twilight", "New Moon", "Eclipse" and "Breaking Dawn" - which basically deals with the dark and occultish like Harry Potter, but instead of witches and wizards it's vampires and werewolves. It's geared towards older teens, but it has a very high vocabulary and interest level and I have to say Stephenie Meyer is one of the best contemporary writers I have had the pleasure of reading. These books are not light beach reading - they are about 4-500 pages each - but if you enjoy sort of gothic romance/suspense/teen angst/star-cross'd lovers/horror type things, and want a good, long epic of a series to ... erm ... sink your teeth into, then it's highly recommended. Enjoy!
