What book should I read?

So, I'm a girl. Some series that I liked are the Sword of Truth, Harry Potter and the Song of Ice and Fire (i just finished the 1st book). What else should I read?

P.S.

Please, no Twilight or vampire suggestions.

    Read The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins. It is truely a great read.

    Here's a description:

    Twenty- four are forced to enter. Only the winner survives.

    In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Each year, the districts are forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a brutal and terrifying fight to the death – televised for all of Panem to see.

    Survival is second nature for sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who struggles to feed her mother and younger sister by secretly hunting and gathering beyond the fences of District 12. When Katniss steps in to take the place of her sister in the Hunger Games, she knows it may be her death sentence. If she is to survive, she must weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

    Also, you might like Graceling by Kristen Cashore.

    Here's a description(I hand typed it because I couldn't find it online, so any typo's are mine. Without further ado, the description:

    His eyes. Kasta had never seen such eyes. One was silver and the other, gold. They glowed in his sun-darkened face, uneven, and strange. She was surprised that they hadn’t shown in the darkness of their first meeting. They didn’t seem human…

    Then he raised his eyebrows a hair, and his mouth shifted into the hint of a smirk. He nodded at her, just barely, and it released her from her spell. Cocky, she thought. Cocky and arrogant, this one, and that was all there was to make of him. Whatever game he was playing, if he expected her to join he would be disappointed.

    In a world were people born with an extreme skill-called a grace- are feared and exploited, Kasta carries the burden of a grace that even she despises: the grace of killing. She lives under the command of her uncle Randa, King of the Middluns, and is expected to execute his dirty work, punishing and torturing anyone who displeases him.

    When she first meets prince Po, who is graced with combat skills, Kasta has no hint of how her life is about to change.

    She never expects to become Po’s friend.

    She never expects to learn the truth behind her Grace—or the terrible secret that lies hidden far away . . . a secret that could destroy all seven kingdoms with words alone.

    Also, I just finished an awesome book called Hawksong, by

    Amelia Atwater-Rhodes.

    Here's a description:

    DANICA SHARDAE IS an avian shapeshifter, and the golden hawk’s form in which she takes to the sky is as natural to her as the human one that graces her on land. The only thing more familiar to her is war: It has raged between her people and the serpiente for so long, no one can remember how the fighting began. As heir to the avian throne, she’ll do anything in her power to stop this war—even accept Zane Cobriana, the terrifying leader of her kind’s greatest enemy, as her pair bond and make the two royal families one.

    Trust. It is all Zane asks of Danica—and all they ask of their people—but it may be more than she can give.
