Default Good book or series?

Looking for a new book or series to read. Similar to the hunger games or twilight series in the sense that they are love stories and have cool twists. I'm about to reread a series I read in 8th grade called Dangerous Girls. Its about teenage vampires but it wasn't as much of a love story. I dont remember loving it but....i figured I'd give it another shot. When I'm done with them though I want to find something new. Any suggestions?

"Ender's Game" and all the sequels. They're all really cool books with awesome stories and twists.

Robin Parish's "Dominion" trilogy was really good.

The "Outlander" series by Diana Gabledon is also good and probably more along the lines of what your looking for. Romance/love story, time travel, intrigue, murder, etc.

I love all the series (except nadia stafford) by Kelley Armstrong. The characters are very well developed and the love stories have lots of twists, but are also very well developed and deep IMO.

She has both adult and young adult series going....all are good.

Tamora Pierce stuff. Especially The Song of the Lioness series and The Immortals.

Robin McKinley's The Blue Sword and Deer Skin. Her stuff is mainly stand alone but most will mention other characters from earlier books.

Juliet Marillier books. Especially The Sevenwaters Trilogy which starts with Daughter of the Forest.

Maria V. Snyder's book Poison Tester I really liked, not so much the rest of the series. But they aren't terrible.

The Ender's Game series is amazing!!! They are sci-fi though, no vampires, lol.

Oh my GoD thank you. I read Graceling way before Fire came out and have been searching for them again unsuccessfully because I couldn't remember either author or name of the book!!!!

I liked the first three of the Uglies but not the last, and the Bloodhound series of Tamora Pierce is also super good.

You know, I liked Graceling ok, it was definitely entertaining but I kept feeling like the idea was much better than the execution. I didn't read Fire though, did you like it as much or more elegy?
