I personally like Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine, A child Called It by Dave Pelzer, and Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper, I think they are eye-opening and emotional, my favored type of books :)

I love Tamora Pierce! So much that I sent her an obnoxious message on facebook saying something like, "My name is Alanna, I love your books about Alanna, can I please be your facebook friend??!!1?!" It was actually a little more refined than that, but still. Total fangirl :D

And The Book Thief is an amazing book. It made me sob like a baby, but it's amazing.

My favorite YA books would probably be those in the Pendragon series, by D.J. MacHale. I also love the Bartimeus books by Johnathan Stroud.

I second Robert with his John Green love, but I'll narrow it down even more than that and say Looking for Alaska. Greatest book on the planet.

Anything by Tamora Pierce. Also The Thief, The Queen of Attolia, and The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner. Also Fire by Kristen Cashore...I think that's it for now. Although since Neil Gaiman's Stardust is YA according to my bookstore, I'll add that to my list :) (I read a lot of YA books :P)

There are a lot of YA books on my shelves from over the years, but I'd have to say my current favorites are Matched by Ally Condie and the Fallen series by Thomas E Sniegoski. I love the seemingly perfect society with that one fatal flaw of human arrogance in Matched, and the themes of love, jealousy and forgiveness in Fallen are really amazing. I can't wait for the next books in both series to come out later this year :D Also, I know it spans a lot of boundaries, but definitely Harry Potter. That series has defined so much of my life, and it solidified my love of books way back when the third book came out. I wish all authors could inspire people to read the way JK Rowling has.

I absolutely LOVE Howl's Moving Castle by Dianna Wynne Jones. It's probably one of my favorite books of all time. Here are few others I really enjoyed:

Graceling by Kristin Cashore
The Absolute True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
Daniel Half Human and the Good Nazi by David Chotjewitz

I agree with this (I actually started reading her work when looking for books to read that had horses in them).

Ever notice how lately, a lot of the more fun things to read have been released in the YA book category? I'm trying to write in that genre, because it seems the most fun and accepting one, and the type of fantasy that I'm writing seems as though it fits best in this category.

Either Truth about Forever or Just Listen both by Sarah Dessen or...

Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson. She helped me get out of a deep depression (almost suicidal) my 7th grade year.
