    I have no idea what you like to read, so I'll just list all of my favorites (I typically only read YA so I think all of these are YA):

    --The Maximum Ride series by James Patterson

    --The Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud

    --The Ring of Solomon by Jonathan Stroud (this is kind of a prequel to the Bartimaeus Trilogy)

    --The Charlie Bone Series by Jenny Nimmo

    --Spellfall by Katherine Roberts

    --The Inkheart Books by Cornelia Funke

    --Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke

    --East by Edith Pattou (it's based on the fairytale East of the Sun and West of the Moon)

    --Sun and Moon Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George (based on the fairytale East of the Sun and West of the Moon)

    --The Dragon Slippers Books by Jessica Day George

    --The Princess of the Midnight Ball Books by Jessica Day George (based on the fairytale of the twelve dancing princesses)

    --The Thirteenth Princess by Diane Zahler (based on the fairytale of the twelve dancing princesses)

    --The Wild Girls by Pat Murphy (if you like realistic fiction)

    --Full Tilt by Neal Shusterman

    --The Once Upon a Time Books by Cameron Dokey

    --The Ember series by Jeanne DuPrau

    --The Farworld Series by J. Scott Savage

    --The Leven Thumps series by Obert Skye

    --The Pillage Books by Obert Skye

    --The Peter and the Star Catchers series by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson (even if you don’t like Peter Pan you’ll probably like this series)

    --The Divide Trilogy by Elizabeth Kay

    --The Vampirates series by Justin Somper (if you like vampires and/or pirates)

    --The Tail of Emily Windsnap series by Liz Kessler (if you like mermaids)

    --The Wish Stealers by Tracy Trivas

    --Anything by Patricia C. Wrede (I especially loved the hilarious Enchanted Forest Chronicles)

    --The Fablehaven Series by Brandon Mull

    --The Vampire Diaries by L. J. Smith

    --Anything by Rick Riordan (As you probably know, he wrote the Percy Jackson books, but I especially loved the Red Pyramid which is based off of Egyptian Mythology)

    --The Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling

    --Anything by Shannon Hale (I especially loved the Princess Academy)

    and the books by Shannon Hale

    Sorry I listed so many! I hope you like them! ^.^

    UPDATE: I thought of one that isn't YA but is still appropriate that I enjoyed. It's "Wildwood Dancing" and the following book "Cybele's Secret" by Juliet Marillier

    If you like a good love story, I'd definitely look into Tiger's Curse by Collen Houck and Entwined by Heather Dixon. I also really like Wildwood Dancing (I'm not sure who the author is... I read it a few years ago.) It starts out a little slow, but it really picks up in the end. My all-time favorite book, though, is Graceling by Kristen Cashore. I hope you find some good reads :D
