Hey all! I absolutely adore Richelle Mead's "Dark Swan" series. I'm looking for more snarky, sarcastic, all around bad-ass female protagonists like Eugenie. I'm into anything PNR/UF so any reccomendations are welcome!

Other books I've read and love:
The Stormwalker Series by Allyson Noel
The Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Strange Angel Series by Lilith Saintcrow

Stacia (the 2010 club) (Stacia_R) Have you tried Richelle Mead's other two series Georgina Kincaid and Vampire Academy (and soon to be spinoff Bloodlines)? All 3 of her series are different story wise, but if you like her writing style in one series, you might enjoy it in another.

I like all of her series, so chances are if you liked Dark Swan, you might like her other books as well. Mead as an author likes to write very spunky heroines. Georgina from Georgina Kincaid is not bad ass like Eugenie, but she's very independent and sexually aware/confident (being that she is a soul stealing succubus after all). Rose from Vampire Academy is in training to be a warrior guardian, so she is very kick ass and tough.

If you want a different author, you could try Night Huntress by Jeanine Frost. There's quite a bit of snarky humor in that one, and the female protag is a vampire hunter.

Yeah, I've read Vampire Academy and am in the middle of Georgina's tale. I've heard about the Night Huntress series... I'll give it a look. Thanks!
