Finished the Rewrite!!! And please recommend me some books!

Yesterday I finished the rewrite of Nameless!

I had decided to scrap the entire last third that I wrote during NaNoWriMo because it wasn't organic and I cringed through every chapter. Pro tip: When you cringe, you cut. End of story.

The end result is 100% better but it still makes me nervous. I sent it all away to my first CP so we'll see what the verdict is. In the mean time... I want to catch up on my reading!

What YA books do I absolutely HAVE to read? I've already read the following:

Sabriel
Paranormalcy
Living Dead Girl
Anna and the French Kiss
Forest of Hands and Teeth
The Summer I Turned Pretty
Mistwood

Conditions: I'm not really a fan of sarcastic narrators. Fantasy preferred, but not mandatory.

Show me what you got!
