    Well you've read a lot..well my only series I recommend when this question is asked is the Darkest Power Series by Kelley Armstrong, but I see you read the first book The Summoning, you read the other 2? If not then do. My heart about stopped when you said it was just ok. But try reading The Awakening if you havent. It was actually the first book I read cuz i didnt know it was the 2nd one. Maybe youll like it better. But if you have read all 3, one i didnt see on your list was The Last Thing I remember by an author or i dont care enough to look up- but shouldnt be too hard to find. Its was fairly interesting but never got into the rest of the series. Maybe you will. Good Luck!

    Stupid and contagious. I don't remember the author name, a woman. Some adult material, but nothing you couldn't handle. You may want to get out of the Young adult stuff. Maybe move to nonfiction? I read S&C with my GF, we loved it.
