I loved Hunger Games, Twilight, Matched, and Divergent recently (and Harry Potter when I was younger)...?
I need some book recommendations for summer reading, preferably from people who've read some or all of those books, and have really enjoyed others.

We must have similar reading taste, because I loved all of the books you listed, except for Twilight, which I thought was good, but not great. Matched also has a sequel, Crossed, coming out on November 1st.
Paranormal romances (Twilight):
Stephanie Meyer also has another book, The Host. It's about parasitic "souls" that take over humans body's, and one girl that resists the takeover of her parasite, a "soul" called Wanderer, in order to find her brother, and her true love. It's more science fiction than Twilight, and at first it's a little slow, but the pace picks up, and Stephanie's writing style really comes through.
The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater-- As a child, Grace was saved from a freak wolf attack by a wolf with startlingly yellow eyes. Now, he's back in her life, but in a different way, bringing with him hidden truth, startling clarity, and unintended consequences. The books in it are Shiver, Linger, and Forever.
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick is a love story with a supernatural twist. Nora finds herself strangely attracted to Patch, but she doesn't realize that by loving Patch, she's gotten herself involved in a supernatural war. The books in it are Hush, Hush, Crescendo, and Silence.
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer is about Calla, a half wolf half human guardian, who's purpose in life is to protect the Keepers. Her whole life has been planned out for her, including her mating to the gorgeous and confident Ren. When Calla goes against the keepers to save Shay, a human boy in the woods, not only is she forced to question everything she's ever known, but to figure out Shay's place in her world, as well as make a devastating decision.
Need by Carrie Jones is about Zara, and the secret, dangerous world she's dragged into after the death of her father. The story is intense and fast paced, and I highly recommend it. It has three books in it so far: Need, Captivate, and Entice.
The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare is about demons, and their hunters. Clary, a regular teen, is thrust into a strange new world when she witnesses a murder committed by three teens, covered in strange markings. The first book is City of Bones.
The Forbidden Game by L.J. Smith is a super scary, but amazingly romantic paranormal romance. In it, Jenny is plunged into a different world, where Julian rules as the Shadow Prince. Throughout the book, she struggles to keep her relationship with Tom, while Julian tries to seduce her at every turn. Meanwhile, if she and her friends can't face their fears in time, they may never return to Earth.
Night World by L.J. Smith is about a secret society of mythical creatures where humans are held in contempt. To tell a human about the Night World, or to fall in love with a human is an excuse for the leaders of the Night World to hunt you down. However you can't control when you fall in love...
Dystopian Novels (Hunger Games, Divergent, Matched):
Delirium by Lauren Oliver is about a society in which love is a disease. Society has been reconstructed around this idea, and a vaccination has been developed. Right before Lena gets her vaccination, she falls in love.
The Uglies Series by Scott Westerfeld is about a futuristic society in which, at 16, everyone has plastic surgery to become "Pretties." Shay decides she doesn't want the surgery, and runs away, pushing her best friend Tally into a world of chaos. The authorities offer Tally a choice: find Shay and bring her home, or never turn Pretty at all.
Life as we knew it by Susan Beth Pfeffer is about what happens when an asteroid hits the moon, altering the natural balance of earth. The book follows 16 year old Miranda as she struggles not only to survive, but to keep her identity in the face of disaster.
The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan takes place in an zombie overrun world. It is a post apocalyptic romance, written elegantly from first to last line. It is amazing, and thought provoking.
The Maze Runner by James Dashner is really good. Basically, Thomas wakes up to find himself in a dark elevator. When he reaches the top, he is greeted by a group of boys who pull him out into their surroundings. The only thing he remembers is his first name, nothing else.
The Gone series by Michael Grant is about what happens when suddenly, in a sleepy suburban town, all the adults disappear, and the teens start developing powers. The books in it are Gone, Hunger, Lies, and Plaque.Source(s): I love reading, and I loved most of the books you listed, so I think we'll have similar taste :). Sorry if it was too long... Happy Reading :)
