    There were 2 good vampire books you told me about. One was “The Passage” and the other was “Vampire ________”. Can you help?

      Sure. Vampire diaries and vampire academy. Academy is young adult but I’m not sure about diaries. Also, a series with books called linger and shiver (maggie something is the author) aren’t vampires but shapeshifters and are young adult too. Also, charlaine harris writes the sookie stackhouse books – there are a ton more than true blood have used.

    I did read “Under the Dome”. Can’t go wrong w/ Mr. King.

      I’ve actually heard a lot of people say that is their FAVORITE Stephen King book. How does it rank for you since I know you’ve read several?
