Im having trouble finding good books to read, a two year long period :/ My favorite series are: AGATB, Poison Study and the book A Certain Slant of Light. While the main characters in the books were young the author made them reasonable and lately all I've been reading are books about some teenage girl who makes all the wrong choices for some new guy she fell in love with...basically copies of Twilight (although I enjoyed the twilight series, I hate re-reading it with new names). I would like to read a book with and original plot and a strong main character who doesn't want to be a boy (like when an author write about how the girl cuts her hair, such as in Graveling or what ever that book was, isn't apposed to falling in love, but has something bigger going on like ruling a new world or escaping something alive like in Hunger games. Sorry I'm picky but all these exact duplicates have been getting on my nerves, it seems like the YA section went to 6 years olds writing about there first crush and how they want to play in mud instead of tea parties haha, what happened to books like The Uglies? so any suggestions?
