What to Read (and what NOT TO) after Mockingjay

I, like bazillions of others, recently finished Mockingjay & I thought I'd see what the experts are recommending for fans to read next. I saw many of such lists post-Harry Potter and I always found them interesting. True, I no longer work in a bookstore so maybe I don't need the info to help my customers, but I'm always looking for great YA to read.

First: this list is garbage:

AMELIA BEDELIA? I am all for people buying and reading Amelia Bedelia but it's for kids learning how to read!

Here's my list:

1. Graceling by Kristin Cashore
2. The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
3. I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore
4. Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
5. Sabriel by Garth Nix
6. Airborn by Kenneth Oppel
7. The Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
8. Little Brother by Cory Doctorow

Yay! You recommended Forest of Hands and Teeth! (Before or after I read it?) And I agree with everything else on your list (which I'm proud to say that've read almost everything on it). And Amelia Bedelia?!!!! The person who created that list should loose their job.

Ming, I read the book after you read it. I had purchased it a while ago but finally picked it up when you reminded me of it.
