Are there YA books that you really like?

Harry Potter series and The Mortal Instruments series are ones that come to mind first. Harry Potter, of course, is in a league of his own but I also enjoyed Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments series as well.

Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins. It's classified as YA which I think is surprising when you read. But still a great book. Warning: The series isn't done yet. I just read the 2nd one Catching Fire and now have to wait until August for the third and I"m not happy about it.

Oh, Hunger Games is on my TBR list. Thanks for the warning! I will take my time reading the books. Do you know if it is a trilogy or will it continue?

I'm not sure. It seems set up for a trilogy but not positive.

Another good YA book is Ivy Cole and the Moon, Gina Farago. I haven't read the second one, Luna because it wasn't AMAZING but it was good.

Ohhh- My fav when I was in highschool was The Secret Circle series, L J Smith. It's kind of Twilight-ish but with witches.

I had to look it up. And it is referred to as the Hunger Games trilogy, so I guess it is a 3 book series.
