TWILIGHT, HOUSE OF NIGHT, VAMPIRE ACADEMY, SOOKIE STACKHOUSE, VLADIMIR TOD, UNDEAD AND UNWED, SOULLESS, NICE GIRLS DON'T HAVE FANGS, etc.
TWILIGHT (again), SHIVER, FULL MOON, KITTY AND THE MIDNIGHT HOUR, MOON CALLED, ALPHA AND OMEGA, and the rest of the pack.
HUSH HUSH, STRANGE ANGELS, FALLEN--more in the details.
WICKED LOVELY, LAMENT, WINGS, and the list goes on.
Magic and/or Immortality:
NICHOLAS FLAMEL, EVERMORE, BLUE IS FOR NIGHTMARES, THE MAGICIANS, REVEALERS, VICIOUS CIRCLE, and we're all still wild about HARRY.
HUNGER GAMES, UGLIES, and on and on.
Not all of these are YA, but a lot of them are.
So, what's the next trend?
If you've read this blog before, you know that I hope it's telepathy.
WAKE/FADE/GONE, MINDER and the rest of the GANZFIELD series?
I'm thinking of having buttons made up:
TELEPATHS ARE THE NEW VAMPIRES.
What do you think? Is YA paranormal going to stay popular? Where do you think it's heading?
How many times do people have to say it before it's true?
And did I miss any books that deserved a mention?
