The Newest Best Books for Teens with Vampires

young adult books with vampires


Vampires come in many varieties.

Some are beautiful. Some are ugly. Given the chance, most of them will suck your blood. But don’t get mad, they’re just doing what vampires do. They span several different young adult fantasy genres to create the popular paranormal romance shelf of your local library. Twilight may not have been the innovator, but it was definitely a movement that helped to put the young adult paranormal romance genre on the map. The following is some of the newest best books for teens with vampires.

Swear (My Blood Approves Book 5) by Amanda Hocking

The fifth and final book in the young adult My Blood Approves series. Beware vampires everywhere. Vampire hunter Alice has moved to a new country with her family, but don’t think that she has settled down. As a deadly cult of vampires resurfaces, she receives a message that threatens her new life with her boyfriend Jack. She will begin a quest that explores a tragic mystery that has haunted Peter for years.

What do readers say?

Beautiful. Amanda Hocking never ceases to amaze me with her work/art. She pulls you in and leaves you breathless while she paints a picture with her words. I’m sad this series is over but it ended so perfectly that I couldn’t imagine another book after Swear. Bravo, Ms. Hocking. Now, excuse me while I devour this series all over again from the beginning.R.L., Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]


Vampire Princess by Cameron Drake

Sasha survived the attack on her royal family, thanks to the two Vampires that protected her. One day she will reclaim the throne, but until then she has to contend with high school. She has to pretend that she’s a normal teenager, and try not to suck the blood of any of her classmates. It would be easier if Dylan wasn’t so wonderful and good looking. It makes her actually want to go to prom, and be the perfect high school sweet heart. Can she hold it all together, without going all vampire on Dylan?

What do readers say?

“If you love Vampire Diaries or Buffy, this is right up your alley. Sasha is no shrinking violet. She is a kick-butt h and she is fallible- even with her ‘unspeakable powers of night’ LOL. I loved the part where she gets all feminist and bites the bad men who think she’s an easy target. This is not your typical vampire book, though there are some dreamy boys in it. One of them just happens to be 800 years old.”F. Raquel, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]


Annihilate (Hive Trilogy Book 3) by Leia Stone and Jaymin Eve

Two things really tick off Charlie: bullies and vampires. To her, there really isn’t much of a difference. After a large battle with the Quorum, she’s decided that the day of the vampire has come to an end. Surprising secrets reveal more than she expects, and could challenge her plan. Will she live long enough to carry it out?

What do readers say?

What a way to end a fantastic trilogy! I laughed, teared up and was on the edge of my seat so many times in this book! Charlie is an amazing character and you get to see a lot of growth in her during this last installment and I loved that! I’m so happy to have gotten to know these characters but sad to see them go! Maybe there will be a spin off in their future!Hbrandt, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

What do readers say?

“Cassandra Clare never lets me down. I love different series but the Shadowhunters are my favorites. This book gives the tales of Shadowhunters past and the present trying to become Shadowhunters. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes the Mortal Instruments and the rest of the series of Shadowhunters. Simon becomes the man he was always meant to be. He also figures out who he is in the process. Thank you Cassandra.”Missi M, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

An normal girl sold her soul to save her mother. This is the fourth book, and the epic conclusion to the young adult Vampire Girl series. Unprepared for the final battle, how can Ari, Fen, and the rest of the characters ever win?

What do readers say?

Ok so I will start off by saying when I found out that the Moonlight Prince was going to be the last one, I was definitely upset! But I am extremely happy with the end result! There were several scenes that I did find unexpected so like the first three books, Moonlight Prince definitely kept me on my toes! I absolutely loved it and hope it becomes a series or even a movie! Definitely sad that it’s over but it has to be a must read for everyone!!!Heather, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]
