The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa 
In a future world, vampires reign. Humans are blood cattle. And one girl will search for the key to save humanity.
Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a vampire city. By day, she and her crew scavenge for food. By night, any one of them could be eaten.
Some days, all that drives Allie is her hatred of them. The vampires who keep humans as blood cattle. Until the night Allie herself is attacked--and given the ultimate choice. Die...or become one of the monsters.
Faced with her own mortality, Allie becomes what she despises most. To survive, she must learn the rules of being immortal, including the most important: go long enough without human blood, and you will go mad.
Then Allie is forced to flee into the unknown, outside her city walls. There she joins a ragged band of humans who are seeking a legend--a possible cure to the disease that killed off most of humankind and created the rabids, the mindless creatures who threaten humans and vampires alike.
But it isn't easy to pass for human. Especially not around Zeke, who might see past the monster inside her. And Allie soon must decide what--and who--is worth dying for.

The Immortal Rules combines two genres that I love,  paranormal and dystopian.
This book is AMAZING! The Immortal Rules is a must read.

  1. Can you believe that I haven't read The Immortal Rules yet? Its craziness. I have heard so many wonderful things about this one. AND I OWN the book. Pathetic. That is what I am. I am going to have to rectify this mistake soon! Thanks for the recommendation, and reminding me that there is a book that I seriously need to hurry up and get to!

  2. Firelight by Kristen Callihan is a blending of historical and paranormal. Not real sure where they copy from but it was awesome. I love
    Victorian London and the magic woven in with the historical facts was a great read.

  3. That's fun - I didn't know about this meme and I'm forever trying to rec books to people (and not only on my blog). . . might need to start this one up.

    I loved Immortal Rules. I'm listening to the audio of Hounded, but haven't gotten very far yet.

  4. I loved Immortal Rules and hope that you do too.
