Seconding Ashley's recommendation of Noughts and Crosses. They go downhill after the first one, but are still beyond incredible.
Also would suggest Trudi Canavan's Black Magician Trilogy. They're on the line between teen and adult, and are the books that got me reading sci-fi/fantasy.
And finally, given that this is on the Mockingjay discussions board, I'd suggest Battle Royale, by Koushun Takami. Translated from Japanese, and it's a good six hundred pages long. Suzanne Collins may claim to have got the idea for The Hunger Games from channel flipping between news and reality TV, but Battle Royale is a pretty similar story and a good few years older. Much grimmer than HG in places, but it's an amazing read. The film is also epic, but gory.
Hope these help.

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead (it's nothing at all like Twilight and despite the weak series title, it's an awesome series with a lot of depth to it)
Strange Angels by Lili St Crow
Glimmerglass by Jenna Black
White Cat by Holly Black
13 To Life by Shannon Delany
Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready

The Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness is also truly excellent. In some ways similar to the Hunger Games (set in a dystopian future, with war and the choices it forces people to make, as well as a central "love story") but written in a different style with different twists. I recommend them +++

Anne McCaffrey, who sadly died last week, wrote some brilliant books set on the world of Pern, well worth a read.

The Book Thief - Markus Zusak

Fantastic story about WWII told by Death as the narrator. Surely magical and tears at the end because it ends so wonderfully. The Book Thief

The Hunger Games's premise is so unoriginal and outright stolen from much better sources, it's criminal. Forget this trash and go see Battle Royale (Japanese movie with exactly the same premise) or go read Stephen King's The Long Walk (I so hope they will make a decent movie out of this) - although it doesn't feature weapons and bow-hunting, just a VERY VERY long marathon teenagers are involved in and where slow-pokes get shot when their speed falls below a certain mark one too many times. So teenagers these days with their collective attention span of a gnat won't like its slower pace and smarts.

Hello, I have just finished an excellent book. I am not normally a fan of this Genre however it was recommended to me from a friend and I thought it was amazing. I am 22 and loved it but I think it is much better for a younger audience, its call Scripted by Dayna Carroll. Its set in the future and follows a 17 year old girl, in England. England has changed and 'life' is no longer as it is today but is like big brother completely controlled and 'scripted' it tackles issues of friends, family, appearance and a romance throughout with lots of action. I think it would be great for a young girl, and I have contacted the author via Twitter and she is only 18 herself which made me like it more. There is also a free sample which is nice as its a rather pricey book.
