Recently a student loaned me two books by Stephenie Meyer, Twilight and New Moon. Yes, they are teenage vampire books, but I thoroughly enjoyed them. Not only are the stories wildly inventive and just about impossible to put down, but Meyer really knows what it feels like to be a teenager. I have several students who are loving her books. And now we have to wait until Fall 2007 for the next one!
Since I had started the whole vampire genre, I tried to read some Anne Rice, but YA vampires are more my speed, it turns out. I really didn't enjoy Interview with the Vampire at all - didn't even finish it, in fact. My main feeling about it was nausea.
