Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz and other stuff

Out of all of your favorite books, pick just one you'd recommend everyone read. As a bonus: why did you pick that one?

WARNING: I'm not the best speller and I'm sure there are plenty errors. Sorry!
I tried to keep spoilers out but I dont think I'm that good.
Let's star from the beginning(Yes this involves Blue Bloods...somewhat).
Before becoming an avid reader all I had ever read was the last two Harry Potter books, The Sereis of Unfortunate Events and manga. So after reading HP I decided I loved reading. Which I did but I only roamed in the childrens section of Target, Books a Million, and my library so when my grandparents took my younger cousin and me to Target and said look in the book section we'll buy you a book I had to be the grown up and go to the 'big kid book section'. Well the first thing I saw was Twilight and that's what I chose and after I read that my mind was like: Whoh. There's more out there. Not just this Harry Potter and the stuff they let us read in our school library!
So I finished Twilight series and was pretty sure those were the best books in the world and nothing can compare (I've gotten over that. There are much better reads). My mom took me to Books A Million and I went strait for where the Twilight books were and my mouth probably dropped open because there are so many YA novels! I stocked up getting House of Night, Blue is for Nightmares, and...the first two Blue Blood novels: Blue Bloods and Masquerade!
I read House of Night (wonderful series) and Blue is for Nightmare (also wonderful sereis) and started on Blue Bloods. Well I stopped after page...maybe 20? To this day I'm not compleltly sure of my reasoning.
Well maybe three weeks ago I picked up the first book, Blue Bloods, and couldn't stop! These are the BOMB!
Blue Bloods is the opening of the series and what a wonderful opening! What I loved is that you know she's a Blue Bloods and once she finds out she doesn't spend the rest of the novel complaining about it, resesting it, or anything else. SHE MOVES ON! So that was good. When reading the description it talks about how the cutest boy at school, Jack Force, is showing intrest in her. Well I was thinking: 'Oh no! Not this story line again!'
It's not that story line again. Plus I worried about her friend who you can tell loves her. Well that didn't work out as I thought it would either. What I'm trying to say is the romance is perfect!
 Not only is Blue Bloods filled with the wonderful young love we fall for but it's also located right in the center of New York. The glamour is great. Everyone in this book if pretty rich which is much more fun to read than you would think. I love reading about the restraunts, clothes (although the author did include the disigner, the street it was bought at, and what part of New York it was from in the description which I really didnt care for), and parties. It's wonderful for me since the best clothes store in our town is Dilliards.
And lastley is the sweet twist she put on her vampire lore! These vamps are angels! This brings another kind of aspect on vampires. Although in the first books it's not I obvious as to which angels certain people are it is in Maquerade and Revelations.
These books deserve reading!
Here's the link to the official trailor:
Here's the actual description (from author website):

Within New York City’s most elite families, there lurks a secret society of celebrated Americans whose ancestors sailed on the Mayflower. They are the powerful and the wealthy—and in fact, they are not human. They are the Blue Bloods, an ancient group of vampires.

Schuyler Van Alen has never fit in at Duchesne, her prestigious New York City private school. She prefers baggy, vintage clothes instead of the Prada and pearls worn by her classmates, and she lives with her reclusive grandmother in a dilapidated mansion. Schuyler is a loner—and happy that way.

But when she turns fifteen, Schuyler’s life changes dramatically. She has a mosaic of blue veins on her arms, and craves raw meat. The death of a popular girl from Duchesne is surrounded by a mystery that haunts her. And strangest off all, Jack Force, the most popular boy in school, is showing a sudden interest in her.

Schuyler wants to find out the secrets the Blue Bloods are keeping. But is she herself in danger?

Steeped in vampire lore and set against the glittery backdrop of New York City, Blue Bloods will be devoured by fans of Melissa de la Cruz.

Just for random info this is like my first book review so don't criticize to much!
