What are some books like the Hunger Games?

I'm a 13 year old girl and I've already read the Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, The Series of Unfortunate events and I've heard about the Mortal Instruments but I've never read it before. I'm into romance and action/adventure. No Lord of the Rings of vampires please! And I like series and trilogies. If you can, please put a short summary about the books. I want books like the Hunger Games with the romance and the breath taking suspense. Thank you so much. (:

    Ok, I know you said you don't like vampires, so I was wondering about fallen angels. I would recommend the Hush Hush series and the Fallen series. I would also recommend the Need series. These books all have romance and suspense, but the romance is more different, and the suspense is great. Some of them had the creep out effect, like Hush Hush and Need and Fallen. But yeah, they are fantastic reads. If you like suspense like the Hunger Games, I would recommend the Darkest Powers series by Kelley Armstrong. It is about this girl Chloe who gets sent to a mental institution and she finds out that she is seeing ghosts and is a supernatural, a necromancer. She and her friends plan a break out, but she gets caught. You'll have to read about it better, because I'm not good at explaining things, its better than what I said. Try

    Oh my gosh you HAVE TO KEEP READING! The book is a little boring in the beginning, but it gets SO GOOD!!!! Just keep reading! I have all three books and I've read them 3 times each! Trust me, I'm the kind of person who won't buy a book OR read it more than once if I didn't love it. It does get good. Trust me. Chapter 2 is when it really starts getting good. You can't just read the first few pages and get a good idea of the book. Please, take my advice and LOVE THIS BOOK! It's amazing! Oh and you should also read the next 2 books, Catching Fire (which is reeeaaallly boring in the beginning but it gets so good in parts 2 and 3), and Mockingjay (which is just a big bowl of AWESOME!) Hope this helps! XD

    You should read the Mortal Instruments series, and her other series is Clockwork Angel. You can go on the internet and search up the summary, i'm bad at those

    Vanished by Meg Cabot is a really good book: it's about a girl who got struck by lightning. She went home and found out that the electrical current never left her body. She sees a picture of a missing child, and when she wakes up the next morning, she knows exactly where the child is. Her powers get found out and the police keeps bothering her for details. Oh, and did i metion the hot guy she likes and dates later on. It's a really good series and i highly recommend it.

    Divergent by Veronica Roth.This is a good book.The second thing you should know is that author Veronica Roth writes one hell of a story, with some phenomenal world-building and a main character that is tough as nails, but vulnerable enough to show her softer side. In fact, there isn't one thing about Divergent that I didn't like.
