So, I like supernatural, things with fairies, vampires etc but no shape-shifting things like people that turn into mice and things. Any recommendations?

Just about anything by Terry Pratchett, my favorites are the ones that involve the witches.

Brilliant, thanks. I never think about Pratchett being YA for some reason

"Young Adult"

Basically books where the primary intended market is teens. I know lots of older adults who enjoy and read YA on a regular basis. It's my impression that although YA books are not typically illustrated, Japanese Light Novels would be a reasonable equivalent.

supernatural books i'd suggest :

Dorothy must Die series by Danielle Paige
Abandon Trilogy by Meg Cabot
The Mortal Instrument Series by Cassandra Clare
The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare (prequel of TMI but no need to read it to understand TMI)
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
Daughter of Smoke and Bones trilogy by Laini Taylor

Iron Dragons Daughter (kind of supernatural/steampunk)

Says MC is a "Changeling" but she doesnt shape shift at all iirc. IDK give it a glance might be worth your time.

Thats about all the YA I can remember its been years since I read anything other then blueprints or Dr. Suess

EDIT: If your a big reader then "Dragon and the Unicorn" If I recall its a really fantastic supernatural re-telling of King arthur story. The series is 4 books total however each book ends well enough that if you wanted to stop there would be no regrets.
