    Hi !
    I just wanted people's opinions on this because personally, vampire books can REALLY annoy me...
    I must admit that I am totally in love with the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead, but that's mainly because the author gave it such an interesting and unique twist. But seriously, so many YA fantasy and paranormal romance books include vampires, which makes them predictable, unoriginal and ANNOYING!!! I don't mean to offend anyone, it is just my opinion and I am sure other people would agree with me. So the question is: are there any original and fascinating legendary creatures that would be suitable for a YA fantasy novel (apart from werewolves, angels and fairies)?
    Thanks in advance !!!

    i agree with you ...vampires are a load of *******s. in fact the whole YA canon is a load of *******s. If the readers are Young they can read children's books, if they are Adults they can read adults' books.

    YA seems to be a catch-all genre for Twilight spin-offs and generic romances. You can get very good children's literature, and often it merges with adult lit (and occasionally vice versa), YA generally seems to be a bit of a nothing genre.
