Totally Twilight Re-Cap
We've reached the end of November. The movie is out, the thousand cast interviews are (almost) over, Twilight's star has faded slightly for another year (or until the DVD comes out). I've had such a good time doing Totally Twilight. I'm also rather happy it's over - I want to get back to regular blogging. Thank you so much to all of you who participated via commenting and guest posts!

What To Read After Twilight
Like many Twilight fans, I went into withdrawal after finishing the series. Nothing else matched up. The only cure was to re-vamp Twilight. But you can't read Twilight forever (well, I guess you could, but even my Twilight obsession only goes so far).
What other YA paranormal romance series would you recommend to a Twilight lover? Alternatively, if you don't like Twilight, what would you recommend in lieu of Twilight?
My first thought is Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. It is arguably better than Twilight (Eeek! Blasphemy!) The romance is hotter and the world is better developed. And no one can argue that Rose is a shrinking violet. I also highly recommend Bloodlines, the first book in the companion series.
