This is a good book series. I have not read all of them, I fell of when I at the time had read all of the available books. No sure if I am going to start it up again, but I might do it.

Why is Dead Until Dark recommended?

Sookie Stackhouse is not a high schooler, she is finished with school and work as a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. But the Sookie Stackhouse is a really good series with vampires, werewolves, and other supernatural beings where vampires have a very central role.

Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires.

Is Twilight good?

Twilight is the first book in the Twilight Saga. I remember I liked the books, but they are not good enough for a reread. That might be because I am both the wrong gender and above the target age.

Why is Twilight recommended?

If you have read Vampire Academy then you probably already have seen the Twilight movies. You should hopefully also have read the books if you have seen the movies, the books are much better. If you have not already read them, then you should read them now.

Is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone good?

This is the first book of a finished seven book series about Harry Potter, the boy who lived. To be honest, I am not a fan of the two first books in this series, but the rest of them are absolutely fantastic. Highly recommended.

Why is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone recommended?

Harry Potter is, as everyone knows, more magic and fewer vampires. But it has a school as a central setting, If you like Vampire Academy then you will probably also like Harry Potter... But you have probably already read it.

She moves into a house called the Glass House with three other outcast students. Goth girl Eve, rebellious Shane, and Michael, a vampire.

Is Glass Houses good?

The Morganville Vampires is good for a teenage girl paranormal series. I did stop after a few books, but that was only because there were no more books at the time. I have no plans of taking it up again.

Why is Glass Houses recommended?

It's not a Highschool, but a collage with vampires and other supernatural events. If you like Vampire Academy then The Morganville Vampires will probably be to your taste. Check it out

Her savor was Ethan Sullivan, the master vampire of the Cadogan House. Merit moves into their mansion and has to learn to live as a vampire while someone still is trying to take her life.

Is Some Girls Bite good?

The Chicagoland Vampires is an OK paranormal vampire romance book. It's not among the best in the genre, but its good enough. If you want more in this genre then its worth reading, but if you want something fresh then you should probably avoid it. It is not unique in its genre.


Some of the following TV-Shows should be to your taste when you like Vampire Academy.

The Vampire Diaries

Tv Show cover: The Vampire Diaries
Elena and her brother Jeremy lives in Mystic Falls with their aunt Jenna. Jenna moved in as their guardian after they lost their parents. At her first day back at school after her parents death she meats Stefan, a mysterious new guy. What Elena dos not know is that Stefan is an old vampire. They gradually grow closer, until Stefans`s older brother, Damon, shows up and acts like an evil bastard.

Is The Vampire Diaries good?

I remember liking Vampire Diaries at on point, but then I grew tired of the show. It is a popular show, so you should probably give it a try.

Why is The Vampire Diaries recommended?

Both Vampire Diaries and Vampire Academy is about vampires and orientated toward teenage girls. But older people might also like it. The Vampire Diaries is also centered around high schoolers, but it's a regular school. Check out The Vampire Diaries if you want a TV-Series that has similarities with Vampire Academy.


Tv Show cover: Roswell
In Roswell we follow teenage alien living in Roswell. They attempted to blend in and live as humans while hiding their alien sides.

Is Roswell good?

I remember I really liked this show. A mix of teen age problems and sci-fi.

Why is Roswell recommended?

Roswell is kind of different. It has no Vampires, and its not a fantasy show, it science fiction. It has aliens in a high school instead of vampires. But it's a good show if you want to see a science-fiction teen show.

Buffy: the Vampire Slayer

Tv Show cover: Buffy: the Vampire Slayer
"In every generation, there is a chosen one... she alone will stand against the vampires, the demons and the forces of darkness. She is the slayer". Buffy, a sexy kick-ass high school girl, is her generation chosen one. Destined to slay vampires, demons and other infernal creatures, while still trying, and failing, to be just a "normal girl". Luckily for her, she is not alone in her quest to save the world. She has the help of her group of friends, the hilarious evil-fighting team called "The Scooby Gang".

Is Buffy: the Vampire Slayer good?

I remember watching this when I was young. I watched it on TV, so I missed some episodes, but it still was really good. I plan to get it sometime in the future and re-watch the whole series. I remember having a teen crush on her so maybe my opinions are flavored by that.

Teen Wolf

Tv Show cover: Teen Wolf
Scott McCall's life changes forever when he is bitten by a werewolf and becomes one himself. Some changes are positive, like strength, super-hearing and a super healing. But there are problems and dangers that come along with being a lycanthrope, both from other werewolfs and other creatures, but also from werewolf hunters.

Is Teen Wolf good?

I like it. I think it is better than the more popular show Vampires Diary. If you like other teen paranormal shows then you will most likely like this one to.


Vampire Academy

Movie cover: Vampire Academy
Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half human-half vampire, a guardian of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discreetly within our world. Her calling is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi.

Is Vampire Academy good?

Sadly this adaptions of the book is bad. Only watch it if you love vampire movies or liked the books and don't mind a bad movie adaptions.

Why is Vampire Academy recommended?

Its the movie version of the books. Far from as good as the books, but it might still be worth watching if you like watching movie versions of books.
