Really good

Arkwell Academy Series by Mindee Arnett (Tor Teen)

Hugely underrated Australian steampunk/fantasy children's novel.

First named Monster Blood Tattoo, they were just recently changed to The foundling's Tale; all three books are incredible!

The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

The Historian. If you want a GOOD vampire book, this is it. It's all about history, and really, the only vampire mentioned is Vlad the Impaler. I love history, especially creepy, horrifying history like the true story of Vlad.
