Link will take you to Goodreads page.

Poison Study (Study, #1)1. Poison Study series by Maria V. Snyder-  This is one of my all-time favorites. Everyone should read it. I LOVE the main character and I LOVE VALEK.
 Choose: A quick death…Or slow poison…

Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble (Jolie Wilkins, #1)2. Books by H.P. Mallory- Dulcie O'Neil series and Jolie Wilkins series. I LOVE this author. These books aren't young adult, but they are cute and funny and sexy, there's magic and hilarity and awesomeness. A lot of her books for Kindle are on sale right now!! Just sayin'!!

3. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. My favorite book written by this author.

The Graveyard Book
4. The Princess Diaries series by Meg Cabot- One of my ALL time favorite series. These books are just great fun. I love me some princess Mia and they have one of my fave bookish boys. Light, cute and laugh-out-loud funny.

Songs For A Teenage Nomad5. Songs for a Teenage Nomad by Kim Culbertson  What is the soundtrack of your life?

6. A Blue So Dark by Holly Schindler
 A Blue So Dark

7. The Host by Stephanie Meyer- With the whole Twilight phenomenon a lot of people may have disregarded this book, but it's actually really well written and even if you hate Twilight you should give this one a chance because it's GREAT. Except for one little thing...Wanda? Really?

8. Books of Faerie Series (Lament and Ballad) by Maggie Stiefvater-  I actually love these 2 books, they are about faeries if you couldn't grasp that already. They are really well written and I enjoyed them more then The Wolves of Mercy Falls.
Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception (Books of Faerie, #1) Ballad: A Gathering of Faerie (Books of Faerie, #2)

9. Riders of the Apocalypse series by Jackie Morse Kessler (Hunger, Rage, Loss, and Breath)- I've only read Hunger and Rage so far, but they blew me away. Unique concept, incredible writing, heart wrenching characters. Amazing.
Hunger (Riders of the Apoca...Rage (Riders of the Apocaly...Loss (Riders of the Apocaly...Breath (Riders of the Apoca...
