Books My Sister-in-Law Should Read!

Krisin J Calidonna
The list author says: "Tiff,
Here are a lot of the YA books I've read, and maybe some I am looking forward to (don't know yet, as I haven't made the list! Hope you find some you like, too! Obviously, I'm way older than the target audience, but there is something about these that make them good stories, and quick reads as well! =)"
The Hunger Games Trilogy Boxed Set

"BEST. BOOKS. EVER!!!!  Are you hooked yet?"

"I really loved this one- a werewolf story, which I'm not very into, but it was sweet and fast-paced."
The Lost Saint (Dark Divine)

"A good sequel;  turns the tables."

"I know I just said I don't like werewolf books, but this is one of my favorite series as well.  I love her writing style.  I read her other books as well, and can't get enough."

"Much different that what's out there now...  I'm looking forward to the sequel, Undercurrent."

"Just read this recently thinking it would be super-cheesy, but it ended up being one of those books that had me hooked right to the end, and looking up info on a sequel as soon as I closed it."
If I Stay

"Listened to this on Audio.  It was a sweet, interesting story.  Didn't expect a sequel, but Where She Went will be out April 5th."

"I couldn't remember if you said you already picked this up.  I LOVED this!!  Can't wait for the next one, Crossed!"
Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, Book 1)
Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, Book 1)
"Ok, the title just makes this sound lame.  But even if they're a little high-school-y, as the books progress, they get a little more complicated, and you get way more engrossed in the characters.  The last one, Last Sacrifice, kept me up reading most of the night finishing it.  Six books in all."
Evernight (Evernight, Book 1)
Evernight (Evernight, Book 1)
"Another Vampire School type book, but with a bit of a twist.  There are 4 books in this series, and I've read 3... Evernight, Stargazer, Hourglass, and I'm looking forward to picking up Afterlife."
Wicked Lovely

"A surprisingly intricately woven series about fairies...  they all tell the stories of related characters, and the final one, which just came out this month, ties everything together.  A little grittier than some..."
Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception (Gathering of Faerie)
Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception (Gathering of Faerie)
"Just love her writing!  This is not a series per se, but there is another book with related characters (this book's heroine's best friend is the subject of the next book)."
Ballad: A Gathering of Faerie
Ballad: A Gathering of Faerie
"The next book.  =)"
House of Night, Books 1-4 (Marked / Betrayed / Chosen / Untamed)
House of Night, Books 1-4 (Marked / Betrayed / Chosen / Untamed)
"I liked these well enough, but I have to say that by the most recent book (Tempted, I think) they were a little too metaphysical/goofy/contrived for me.  Enjoyed the first several though."
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones; City of Ashes; City of Glass
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones; City of Ashes; City of Glass
"Read these about 2 years ago, so I don't remember all the details, but I do remember putting down the first one and picking up the next one immediately.  There is a long-awaited 4th in the series that comes out this week. It has a bit of everything- magic, demons, "shadowhunters," shapeshifters, lovey-dovey stuff, etc."
Delirium (Delirium Trilogy)
Delirium (Delirium Trilogy)
"I really really liked this book... until the end.  Maybe you'll feel differently.  It's about a girl growing up in a future society that considers love a disease and the cause of all bad things in the world, and people are cured of it at age 18.  There is a sequel, but after the ending, I don't know where it will go.  Grrr.  I hate that."

"These books are waaay cheesy, but still had an interesting storyline, even if a little too much emphasis was put on the teeny-bopper life of the main character.  Involves Fae, shapeshifters, and in later books Norse mythology. (I know, weird, right?)  But still fairly entertaining. Book 2- Entice Book 3- Captivate"
Glass Houses (Morganville Vampires, Book 1)
Glass Houses (Morganville Vampires, Book 1)
"A series of 10 books so far, most of them in paperback with itty-bitty print.  Less love story and more vampires-rule-the-town power struggles.  There are also ghosts, and other weird things going on.  Less teen/YA, more gritty."
Hush, Hush (The Hush, Hush Saga)
Hush, Hush (The Hush, Hush Saga)
"I read this about the same time as I read Fallen (Lauren Kate) and there are lots of similarities.  I like this series as well (the main character's name- Patch- is LAME, but oh well...)  Book 2 Crescendo Book 3 Silence, out later this year."
Wake (Wake Series, Book 1)
Wake (Wake Series, Book 1)
"A great trilogy!!!  Not as much paranormal stuff- not in the vampire/pixie/werewolf vein, anyway- but I couldn't put these down."
White Cat

"Really liked this book!  Sequel to come..."
The Summoning

"These are definitely Young Adult books, but the storylines and action are much better than one of the adult fiction books of Kelley Armstrong's that I picked up. I didn't even make it through the first couple of chapters on that one.  Pretty action-packed."
