    I would recommend the "Legend" trilogy by Marie Lu. The books are very well written, and are filled with lots of action, suspense, and romance. They're nothing like The Hunger Games or Divergent, I promise c:

    If you don't want hyped and something new, try The Irrelevant life of Noel Z. Izzard (and the girl through the magical elevator).

    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HEON03E

    It's new and I received a give away copy and it's been awesome. I just finished it and enjoyed it. It is told through 1st person of two characters, a boy and a girl, and set in modern world with elements of fantasy.

    I would suggest that you check out Star Kissed by Lizzy Ford.

    http://www.amazon.com/Star-Kissed-Lizzy-Ford-ebook...

    When Mandy loses her job, she thinks she’s hit rock bottom – until her plane is swallowed by a strange storm that sends her and everyone else on board 10,000 years into the future. At first, she thinks the scary world is nothing more than a bad dream. The war-torn Earth is unrecognizable. Black fog blocks the sun, and the oceans are dry. Even worse: the planet is inhabited by half-human, half-alien creatures dying from a mysterious disease. Horrified at the thought of spending her life here, she clings to the knowledge that there’s one man who can open the star gate to send her home.

    I would recommend books by Sarah Dessen (tho I get tired of her sometimes) Rainbow High is another Classical book I like (I would recommend it to anyone) And I also like The It Girl series by Cecily Von Ziegesar. (And if you liked her series The Gossip Girl you should read Luxe even tho' it's non essential with drama)

    If you love reading you should totally go on https://www.goodreads.com/
