Good YA novels (would like a series if available)?

ok so im kind of in a what i call, a reader's block, i tend to read books too fast and read them for like 6 hours straight and usually finish them within 2 or 3 days. ok so just letting you know what kind of books i like- i love dystopian, i also enjoy modern books about like fallen angels faeries and mystical creatures (NO VAMPIRES, werewolves are OK), and ok i'll be honest, im a girl so i love romance (i really enjoy love triangles, they are so sweet and bitter at the same time) but no SEX in it, i love a good kiss but no ahem groping or sexually touching.... ok and so here are ALL the books i've read so far and my thoughts on them-

Enclave (pretty good but kind of confused on the whole romance plot

City of Bones-that means i've read the entire series except for Fallen Angel, couldnt bring myself to finish (I LOVED THIS SERIES, i just didnt like the whole sis and bro thing, that was really weirdddd)

the Hunger Games ( O M G i love this!!! it was just so perfectly balanced with the politics, romance, and the action with a hint of gore. it also had a love triangle so that was AWESOME!)

Collide ( i loved the plot and idea, i enjoyed the character and cant wait for the 3rd book! the only thing i didnt like was when they uhhhh had sex like 3 times)

Hush Hush (ok book, not crazy though. i liked the idea of the books, it was just that it felt as if there was something missing, but i COULD NOT read the 2nd book, the main character got kind of creepy and stalkerish)

Beautiful creatures ( all i can say is was this was so sweet<3. i loved how it was a guy's view of what was happening, its a nice change. i totally fell in love with the girl and i can realte to this story because i too live in a small country town.)

Gone Series (i really really enjoyed this book! but i had an issue with the 3rd book becasue i became bored because the series is so long, i kind of stopped and told myself in a month or so i'll start reading it again)

I am Number Four ( this book was good. i saw the movie first and ill just say that the books was better! im not usually into aliens but this was pretty good!

The Giver- including the sequels- (i really enjoyed this!! it was different then what i usually read! i was just hoping for some romance, but no, it was wonderfull without it!)

The Host ( OMFG i LOOOVE this! i'll admitt mrs.myeres actually did a good job! i read Twilight and HATED it! but this.... wow. its so... well i have no words to how AMAZING this was)

Angelfire (ummm really did not like it, was ok, but not great)

Birthmarked (ahhh i enjoyed this! the only issue was the end when the guy sacraficed himself, it made me mad)

Divergent ( it was as good as the Hunger Games!!! i loved the main character! omg this book made me laugh, cry, and rejoice!)

Unwind (pretty good but i would have liked it better in the eyes of only one person)

Eden (it was good, but not one of my absolute favorite, it spent way too much time on the romance)

Ashes, Ashes (this was good it would have been great if the guy wasnt such an *** about being with her-sorry for language lol-

The Uglies Series ( i really enjoyed this!! i loved tally! i really liked the whole idea of how they needed to be perfect to be considered beautiful. but i didnt like extras because it had nothing to do with tally and wasnt even taken place in the same COUNTRY)

Paranormalcy ( i really really liked this!! i loved the stalker faery!! and it was funny! the only thing i didnt like was how immature the girl was...)

The Declaration ( okkkk... but it was WAY to predictable)

Matched (OMG this books was soooo sweet!!!! i absoluutely LOVED it!!! ahhhh such perfect romance, and i loved how it was all romance but it didnt like i dunno how to explain but it didnt all revovle around her confusion and the romance)

Delirium ( i really liked this but i got pissed because im prertty sure the dude died at the end)

thats all so please give me some good books! and please no one say percy jackson series im 15, not 10. thanks!

    I would very very highly recommend the Renegade Spirit series by Jerry B. Jenkins. "Tattooed Rats", "Demon's Bluff", and "Seclusion Point". I loved them.

    Also, ANYTHING by Ted Dekker. He has two series that totally blew my mind. Paradise Trilogy: "Showdown", "Saint", and "Sinner". And his Circle Series, "Black: The Birth of Evil", "Red: The Heroic Rescue", "White: The Great Pursuit", "Green: The Last Stand".
