About three things I was absolutely positive:
First, Edward was a vampire.
Second, there was a part of him–and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be–that thirsted for my blood.
And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

3. Mortal Instruments
When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder—much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing—not even a smear of blood—to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?
This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know. . . .

Suze is a mediator — a liaison between the living and the dead. In other words, she sees dead people. And they won't leave her alone until she helps them resolve their unfinished business with the living. But Jesse, the hot ghost haunting her bedroom, doesn't seem to need her help. Which is a relief, because Suze has just moved to sunny California and plans to start fresh, with trips to the mall instead of the cemetery, and surfing instead of spectral visitations.
But the very first day at her new school, Suze realizes it's not that easy. There's a ghost with revenge on her mind ... and Suze happens to be in the way.
- Fallen - I actually really loved the first book, but haven't had the time to catch up to the series! I'll definitely review it once I have the chance to read all the books.
- House of Night - I loved the first few books, but I have this problem with series that go on for a ton of books. I just lose interest. I think the perfect amount is 4 books, which allows for a complete arch without having to throw in ridiculous scenes to keep up the excitement.
- Immortals - Again, I enjoyed the first book, but there were other books that drew me in more so I never got around to reading the rest. I might later.
- Wicked Lovely - I read a bunch of these, and thought they were a good fun read, but just not my favorite.
- Wolves of Mercy Falls - I loved the first book, but I didn't love some of the plot twists. I still think the books are great. I would read them based on writing style alone.
I'd love to hear what you think of my top ten list! What are your favorite paranormals??
