Yes another vampire series.  However this one deals with real issues even if they are about supernatural beings.  Parental expectations, teen love and what happens when you don't follow the path everyone else expects you too.  Plus the odd twist you just wont see coming.

Bookworm Blogger: Review: Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire

Bookworm Blogger: Review: Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire | Books for teens | Scoop.it

The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate percentage of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance between her and the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University's Walking One-Night Stand.

Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs—and wants—to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the ultimate college campus charmer. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his appeal, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis’s apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.

Synopsis:

Callie LeRoux lives in Slow Run, Kansas, helping her mother run their small hotel and trying not to think about the father she’s never met.

Her only hope comes from a mysterious man offering a few clues about her destiny and the path she must take to find her parents in "the golden hills of the west": California.

Along the way she meets Jack, a young hobo boy who is happy to keep her company — there are dangerous, desperate people at every turn. And there’s also an otherworldly threat to Callie.

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare | Books for teens | Scoop.it

This series is beyond brilliant. Clockwork Angel started out good, but not amazing for me. That shortly turned around, and the amazingness I found in Clockwork Angel was simply multiplied in Clockwork Prince and was a just brilliant read that I was blown away by.
