First Posted: 06/22/10 07:48 AM ET   Updated: 05/25/11 05:50 PM ET

Vampires are having a great run in books, especially teen literature, and publishers are looking not only for the next Stephenie Meyer and "Twilight," but for the next teen craze. The gamut is running anywhere from angels who have fallen from grace to Greek gods, from werewolves to dragons. We've made a few suggestions of our own as well. (Will publishers get the joke?)

Vote in the slideshow below and let us know which creature you think will end up dominating the market.

There has been a lot of talk over the past year or so about how angels will be the next vampires, and a slew of teen angel lit has come out recently, most of which features handsome angels who have fallen from grace. One of the greatest vampire writers of them all, Anne Rice, is leading the way: her most recent book is called "Angel Time" and is the first in a series called "Songs of the Seraphim."

Other books that have taken angels as their subject include "Fallen" by Lauren Kate and "Hush Hush" by Becca Fitzpatrick, both out in the past year.
