I'm currently enjoying The Sammy Keyes Series by Wendelin Van Draanen. Super light read and I actually finished the first book in 2 hours. Parang modern Nancy Drew na mas funny and hot tempered yung heroine. :)

I'll recommend The Mortal Instruments, although hindi ko pa tapos yung last book, City of Glass. It's really good. Napupuyat nnman ako! ;D

These are the most recent (November '09- March '10) YA books that I've read. And loved. :D

The Mortal Instruments- Cassandra Clare
Beautiful Creatures- Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Prophecy of the Sisters- Michelle Zink
The Morganville Vampires- Rachel Caine
Evernight- Claudia Gray
Darkest Powers- Kelley Armstrong
Academy 7- Anne Osterlund
Before I Fall- Lauren Oliver
The Truth About Forever- Sarah Dessen
Two- Way Street- Lauren Barnholdt
Avalon High- Meg Cabot
Take Me There- Susane Colasanti

Halfway pa lang ako through Catching Fire. I'll probably take a break muna from paranormal YA after reading it.  :) Maybe I'll read more of Meg Cabot's.  ;D
You make it real for me.

^Onga, I'm not sure kung may paperback na ng Hunger Games and Catching Fire sa 'Pinas. Kausap ko kasi yung friend ko last night, hilig din sya sa books, sabi ko basahin nya, kaso daw wala pa sya nakikita na paperback.

Ako din iniisip ko kung anong isusunod ko sa Hunger Games, I've made a list na nga, kelangan ko lang magdecide. Hahaha. :) Let me know kung anong hiniram mo sa library nyo! :)

True sis heavensent, this is a must for any booklover. Ako din nagiintay na lang ng paperback :) Ay ask ko lang, would you know if merong ng paperback yung buong series ni Percy and the Olympians? :) Sabi ng kapatid ko, yung isang cousin namin, bumili daw, naisip ko, mas nauna pa yata sa 'Pinas, dito kasi September pa. Thanks sis! :D

Mortal Instruments- Cassandra Clare

Sis try nyo... Not as awesome as harry potter but way better than twilight (sensya na sa twilight fans, opinion ko lang po  ;D)

You will definitely love Jace  :)

"Protego!" roared Harry, and the Shield Charm expanded in the middle of the Hall, and Voldemort stared around for the source as Harry pulled off the Invisibility Cloak at last.

Sis mom_wanwan, I've read good reviews sa Heather Wells Series. Titles are Size 12 is Not Fat, Size 14 is Not Fat Either and Big Boned as well as yung Boy Series: The Boy Next Door, Boy Meets Girl and Every Boy's Got One.

Sana nga maganda sila. ;D Let me know what you decided on. Next in line yung Morganville series sakin. Hehe.
