With what I should read next. I haven't read anything in two weeks. Help help help! Just give me suggestions, don't worry about whether I have 'em or not. This can also help me in my Birthday Shopping List. :)
Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. It'is fantastic.But there is also Little Sister by Kara Dalkey if you are in the mood for a really cool obscure Asian fantasy.
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta or Secret Society Girl by Diana Peterfreund.
You've probably already read all of these, but just in case:The Forest of Hands and TeethWintergirlsSpeakHandcuffsFaking 1913 Reasons WhyOr, of course, you could re-read the Harry Potter books in honor of the new movie. That's always fun choice!
I think I've recommended this before, but you have to read The Mortal Instruments Trilogy by Cassandra Clare! They are so good.
I just finished Coffeehouse Angel and loved it!!
Hmmm The Black Dagger Brotherhood, best series ever.
How to Say Goodbye in RobotShiverNever Cry WerewolfGiving up the VEvernight StargazerPerfect YouTantalizeThe Miles BetweenSproutLipstick Apologythat's all I got for now!
The Spellman Files series is fantastic.
You may have already read these but I they're good books so I'll suggest them anyways:Along for the Ride by Sarah DessenPrada and Prejudice by Mandy HubbardTo Catch a Pirate by Jade ParkerThe Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine HoweBad Kitty and Kitty by Michele Jaffe (AWESOME!)I was a Teenage Popsicle and Beyond Cool by Bev Katz Rosenbaum
The Queen's Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner - a deliciously well-written fantasy series with twists, turns, and surprises:The ThiefThe Queen of AttoliaThe King of Attolia
Anything in the Traces Series by Malcolm Rosee.g. Framed, Lost Bullet, Roll Call, Double Check, Final Lap and Blood Brothers.
Stealing Heaven since you said the other day you haven't read it yet!

Queen of Babble series by Meg Cabot (you can NEVER go wrong with Meg Cabot)Sloppy firsts by Megan McCafferty (Marcus Flutie=♥)A Voice in the Wind by Francine Rivers (Christian literature....I actually really like this one. It's very profound and the characters are wonderfully written).
Here are a few I did see anyone mention.NORTH OF BEAUTIFULTHE CHOSEN ONESHIFTTHE LAST EXIT TO NORMALBRUTAL
Huge by Sasha Paley is a good summer read.
I'm reading through the Study series by Maria Snydor (Snyder? Can't remember). Poison Study and Magic Study are the first two, and I loved them. Off to buy Fire Study this weekend!Hmm...also reading Dull Boy--v. good so far, fun and entertaining. Just finished The Chosen! Know you've read it, but I loved it--such an interesting, haunting, beautiful book.Have you read The Forest of Hands and Teeth? It's quite good as well.If you like Shakespeare references, try Alan Gratz's series starting with Something Rotten.
I second Beth's picks. ^.^ Also, Faery Rebels by R.J. Anderson. :)
The Clique books always get me out of a book funk. Stupid, yes, but amusing and addicting!
Ballads Of Suburbia? You like IWBYJR so you may this one too. Or Crazy Beautiful?
Empresses of the World by Sarah Ryan(I finished it yesterday and am rereading it again straight away).

Have you read Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series? It's urban fantasy - not YA, but it's really good. THe first one's moon called.

Hey I'm really loving Laura Whitcomb's A Certain Slant of Light. It's fantastic so far and very different in the best way. I love your hangman game :D. Also, I was thinking about starting a book blog too. Maybe kick it off with a giveaway? Do you have any suggestions on how I could get people's attention? I just asked Reading Keeps You Sane this, not that I actually know her lol
Hey R.X., you've got a long list, but here's my 2 cents--Generation Dead and Kiss of Life by Daniel Waters. They're deeper than many I've read of late, the kind of books that completely entertain you while also making you mad/sad at the way people sometimes behave. I couldn't put them down.
Have you read Airman, by Eion Colfer yet? It's a great book.
I was going to be vague and say books, but I'm not that mean.The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick NessVampire Academy by Richelle MeadThese are currently my two favourites.
I was too lazy to read through all the other posts, so here we go.The Summoning by Kelley ArmstrongEon:Dragoneye Reborn by Alison GoodmanPrincess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day GeorgeProphecy of the Sisters by Michelle ZinkSecrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel Series by Michael ScottBook of a Thousand Days by Shannon HaleBTW-I'm a new follower and I love your blog!!
I have an award for you:http://www.bookworminginthe21stcentury.com/2009/07/i-forgot-award.html
I'm late but I just read LOOKS by Madeleine George. LOVED. If you haven't read it... think about it.
The Lost Summer? ;) Did you receive your copy? Let me know if it didn't make it all the way over there (I asked my publisher to send one, but they are funny about mailing review copies internationally), and I'll put one in the mail myself!Happy belated birthday!Kathryn
Also, this is an older one, but King Dork by Frank Portman. Hilarious. Especially great for music lovers.
Notes on a Scandal, by Zoe Heller. Amazing. You can find the review on my blog.
It's a bit late for suggestions but...Whale Talk by Chris crutcherTantalize by Cynthai Leitich Smithall of Paula Chase's booksA Wish After Midnight by Zetta ElliottFlygirl by Sherri L. smithMare's War by Tanita S. Davisoh and I've heard that Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before by David Yoo (i think that's the author) is good.
Hey! For some reason, this embedded comment form makes most people click twice before the comment is processed and published. It's not you - it's just that it's a new Blogger feature with kinks and all that. (But I adore it and don't wanna get rid of it!) I removed Captcha to make the process easier. You don't have to rewrite the comments twice; just click on SUBMIT twice and it should work. If not, email me. Thanks! -Steph
