Does anyone likes YA fiction? I personally am quite fond of it. I particularly like "Harry Potter" and "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" series.

When I was myself a young adult, I was quite fond of Brian Jaques Redwall series. towards the end it kinda got laden down with Christian allegory though.

My wife (who is also a SRG fan, although not quite as rabid as myself) is quite fond of the "Ranger's Apprentice" series by John Flanagan. I've read a couple of chapters of the first book and it seemed interesting, but I was devouring the Secret Histories at the time and haven't turned back to it yet.

I always liked the "Seeker" series by Susan Cooper. I know the first book was made into an inferior movie awhile back, but, trust me, the books are MUCH, MUCH better. They didn't deserve that.

I know Susan Cooper. She has great ideas, but in my opinion her novels are not very readable. I also read the first Ranger's Apprentice novel and thought that it's OK - but I prefer more magic and adventures in the books I read...

I really like the Vampirates series by Justin Somper and I LOVE the Larklight trilogy (Larklight, Starcross and Mothstorm in that order) from Philip Reeve.
I'm not too proud to admit I will happily read YA fiction or even children's books if they appeal to me :D

Same here. Recently I discovered a new favorite - the "Jake Ransom" series by James Rollins. Great author, one should check his adventure thrillers as well.

I started reading SRG when I was in my early teens. So he counts as my YA fiction.

I love the short stories by Kelly Link, who is found in the Teenage section of my local library.
