TOP TEN TUESDAY
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
FOR TVD FANS AND TPP FANS
We're pretty obsessed with the CW over here at Nawanda Files, so I chose two very different CW shows for this Top Ten Tuesday. The first 5 books are for anyone who loves The Vampire Diaries. The vamp show has some of the best drama and thrills. But if you're more of a Tomorrow People fan then maybe you're into sci-fi -- those would be my last 5 suggestions.
1. Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
This is a must. If you've never read Sweet Evil then you are missing out big time! There's a huge paranormal element: The main characters are Nephelum that have to carry out the sins of the Dukes (i.e. Lust, Wrath, Envy, etc) The romance is spot on, and you'll fall in love fast.
2. Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Daemon from Obsidian reminds me of the bad-boy Damon from TVD. The paranormal "alien" aspect and the love-hate relationship between Kat and Daemon are the reasons to read.
3. Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock
Technically this is a werewolf book but if you're a fan of TVD's love triangle (or love triangles in general) then you'll want to read Hemlock. Possibly, the best love triangle I've ever read. I still can't decide who I want with Mac.
4. Vampire Academy by Richelle Meade
This is a give-in. All TVD fans really should read Vampire Academy books to experience a whole new side of vamps. In my opinion, these books are much better than TVD books. And if you're craving a literary fang sucker, you're first stop should be Meade.
5. Carnival of Secrets by Melissa Marr
There's a side of TVD that's based on lore and there's a side based on relationships. If you prefer a heavy dose of both than you should check our Carnival of Secrets (originally titled Carnival of Souls) by Melissa Marr. This book is filled with deception and intrigue with a paranormal/fantasy twist. It's all about who is backstabbing who. And like TVD, the witches hold lots of power.
6. Tempest by Julie Cross
The Tomorrow People is all about the sci-fi and the dystopian government oppressing the "different" kind of people. But what I love most about TTP is how the group feels like their own little military. Complete with a leader and soldiers. The entire Tempest series revolves around Jackson--a time traveler (sci-fi!) and his rise into the CIA and fighting for the world. It's practically made for people who love TTP.
7. Uninvited by Sophie Jordan
TTP's base concept is about the people who have powers or "genes" to be a telekenetic teleporting telepath. Much like that base concept, Uninvited's revolves around the "kill gene" that some individuals carry. Those that have it are immediately deemed dangerous and sent away. It's the ultimate prejudice--much like the people of TTP face.
8. Pivot Point by Kasie West
The Tomorrow People have powers, but they so wish they had Addie's power. She can see two different paths and choose based on what she sees. It's a little paranormal, a little sci-fi. But there's so much humor in Kasie West's writing that reminds me of the hilarious moments of TTP.
9. The Program by Suzanne Young
Do you only love The Tomorrow People because of John and Cara's love story? Guilty! And if you're like me, then this is the book you should be picking up. The sci-fi element (suicide as an epidemic) just adds to the overall love between Sloane and James. It's one hell of an emotional ride.
10. Reboot by Amy Tintera
And lastly, if you love TTP because of the fighting and general badassery that happens in the show, then look no further. Reboot is full of badass fights and situations. Plus, Wren is my ultimate book heroine.
