Vampire/Gothic series

If you like gothic/vampire series, especially those with romance, here are two series that you should look for.

Stephenie Meyer has written Twilight and New Moon. Both take place in Forks, Washington. A girl moves to live with her father. She becomes interested in a guy at school who seems to have something different about him. She finds out that he and his family are not the normal family. It is a good series, with the third book Eclipse, coming out next week.

Another series is the Blue Bloods series by Melissa de la Cruz. There are two titles right now, Blue Bloods and Masquerade. This story is set in New York and at a private school in the city. The students at the school find out something interesting about their families and ancestors. A true historical mystery plays a part in the storyline also.

We have each of these books at the library and will have the others once they are published. Come by and check out these great series.
