Next next weekend the final installment of the Twilight movies, Breaking Dawn Part II, comes out. I jumped reluctantly on the Twilight train pretty late. I swore that I did not like vampires (how did I know I’d never given them a chance), I was horrified that they took my precious Cedric Diggory (I think he makes a great Edward), and I heard that Bella was a wimpy role model (but then again I don’t believe all book characters need to be role models and in fact other characters in the books are great). So once I gave it a chance I really enjoyed the books. Of course they aren’t marvelous works of literature, but they are good solid fun that got tons of people reading.
And as much as Breaking Dawn Part I had me cracking up at inappropriate parts -sorry to anyone who was in the theater with me, but the wolves mind talking, oh yeah- I’ve gotta celebrate an end of an era. So, for today’s Top Ten Tuesday freebie on The Broke and The Bookish I’ve got 10 suggestions for people who liked the Twilight books (I’ve limited the list only to books I’ve actually read and enjoyed). These all involve young adults with powers of some sort.
As always you can find more about each of these books, my reviews and if you want befriend me on goodreads. Also check back in next Monday for a fun Breaking Dawn Blogger Party complete with some of my favorite bloggers.
For the Love of The Cullen Family
One of my favorite aspects of the Twilight books was the Cullen family. I just loved how they worked together even when they didn’t agree they were trying to do what was best. Both Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini and Die for Me by Amy Plum are newer reads for me and I adored them both. Besides being awesome books about kids with powers they gave me the same family fuzzies I got from the Cullens.
