I gave up on Forest of Hands and Teeth and The Angel Experiment because the beginning bored me to death. T___T

I'll be sure to try Graceling though. :)

Graceling and Fire are both great books. I loved them both and think Kristin Cashore is very talented in her writing.

just wanted to say that i think it's TOTALLY normal for us girls/women to LOVE young adult books still! i think it's because most of the books center around love, or some kind of love- and who doesn't LOVE, love?! :) when the story is appealing, it appeals to all of us, regardless of age. :)

Have you tried the boys that bite series by Mari Mancusi?? some of them have silly names but they are really good. They have good action scenes and romance tied in but doesnt overwhelm the books. I love all her books, YA and adult (but even the adult are written for the 20 something group) Hope that helps.... btw im 30 and still love YA books

I loved Troubled Waters, too. Did you know a sequel is coming out this year "Royal Airs".

I would recommend a few things that may interest you.
The vampire academy series is pretty great, it has romance but has a great story line so that romance is not the main focus of the story.
There is a spin off of that series called the bloodlines series and it is fantastic, very enjoyable, once again there is romance but the story line is amazing very good read.
Another series that i believe is for more adult YA readers like you and me, would be the series called Thirst, i'd give those a try.
Hope I helped!

I read a lot, as I teach teenagers, and have one of my own, and really enjoy them. Agree with the suggestion of Anne McCaffrey's Pern novels, but best YA books by far of recent years (in mine and son's opinion) is the Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness, starting with The Knife of Never Letting Go.
