The Infernal Devices Trilogy, by Cassandra Clare

This has got to be one of the best series’ in almost all of modern YA literature. While it’s a spinoff of Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series, it can be read first, and I believe it to be even better than its predecessor. For those of you unaware of what this series is about, it’s about Shadowhunters, which are essentially demon-fighters that are part-angel. It also has fairies, werewolves, warlocks, vampires, and all that. All of Clare’s series’ are about this, but The Infernal Devices  in particular is about Tessa, a teenager in 19th century London who finds out that she is not human, and has special powers. She meets up with a group of Shadowhunters and works with them to fight the evil Magister, who wishes for the end of all Shadowhunters. It’s a really great series, the character development the best I’ve ever read, the romance the best I’ve ever read(and the best love triangle), and the plot amazing as well. Although the other books that take place in the same world are not as good, they are still worth reading. Give it a try. No other book has made me cry as much as Clockwork Princess.  ~Aliza

The Angelfall Trilogy, by Susan Ee

51z+dDB4n5L  

Never have I thought that this scarcely known book called Angelfall became my favorite of 2014. This post-apocalyptic story follows the journey of Penryn Young, a teenager who sets off to find her 7-year old sister who was taken by angels. She journeys with an angel left wingless names Raffe and discovers haunting secrets about her world. This book. I can’t even. I literally can’t. Everything about this series (what is in the series so far) is just so perfect. The world-building, the story, the pacing is absolutely flawless. And the characters! The characters are the best part of this series, you will fall in love with them quicker than you think. Overall, anyone who loves butt-kicking heroines and snarky hot males thrown into a world with warrior angles, will devour this book. ~Haven

The Unwind Dystology, by Neal Shusterman

Okay, first of all, disregard the covers. Yes, they are creepy. Trust me, I know. Don’t let the covers overtake your judging of the book. I was actually a bit obsessed with the first book, Unwind, for a while, but for good reason. These books actually make you THINK. They make you wonder about ideas that have never crossed your mind in the least, and although they are quite…. unsettling ideas, you will enjoy it. This dystology is set in a future society where life is inviolable since birth, But, between the ages of thirteen and eighteen, the child’s parents may “unwound” the child, which is basically transplanting all of the child’s organs into different donors. The story follows Connor, Risa, and Lev, three “unwinds” who fight for their survival together. Chilling as the summary is, I guarantee you, you will not want to miss out on this. If you enjoy frightening dystopian futures with a survival story, then this is the book for you. ~Haven

The Lunar Chronicles, by Marissa Meyer

The Lunar Chronicles are a sci-fi series loosely based off of fairy tales. They follow the adventures of Cinder, a reincarnation of Cinderella, and later others, as they work to fight the evil Queen Levana of the Moon. It’s a lot cooler than I just made it sound, so check out the blurb from Goodreads if you want a better summary. However, it’s very interesting to see how Meyer incorporates fairy tales into this unique dystopian series, including characters from Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and the next novel coming in November will feature the story of Snow White. The characters are incredibly layered, and the story impossible to put down. Just read it. It’s not a bestseller for nothing. ~Aliza

The Legend Trilogy, by Marie Lu

The Legend Trilogy is a dystopian, science-fiction series that follow the two main characters June and Day. June is gifted prodigy and one of the country’s elite while Day is the country’s most wanted criminal. This trilogy is an action-packed adventure. Every minute is intense and it will keep you engaged all the way to the last few pages. The writing is simplistic but captivating, and the characters are well-developed and can kick some serious booty. If you are looking for a fast-paced, action-oriented series, this trilogy is your next read. ~Haven
