I can definitely recommend Divergent series, I might try and get through Heartless this month. Is it a stand alone?

The Hunger Games, and I can't believe it hasn't been mentioned already. The Giver by Lois Lowry is also one that comes to mind.

I haven't managed to read Heartless yet. Maybe I'll do it next month and post a review.

I'm going to read more John Green books. I've read one book by him and it was pretty good.

The giver is the first of a quartet. None of the others are quite as good, but still worth reading.

There are so many! Heartless was I much better than I thought it would be. Of fire and stars, My lady Jane, Caraval, Daughter of the Pirate King. Each book was provided to me by Owlcrate. I recommend them to all.

I couldn't help to post one of my favorite series from this genre on your forum. A few years ago I got into the habit of randomly scrolling through different genres waiting for something amazing to smack me in the face. Thankfully Kaitlyn Davis smacked me hard with her Midnight Fire Series. It definitely reads well with the fantasy lovers as well. Hopefully someone out there will enjoy it as much as I have.
