**This was probably my hardest one to think of something for. I read both YA and MG but would not call them my preferred genres. I find if I read a book in either of these I then need to read an adult book next. That being said some of my favorite reads over the years have been either YA or MG.
I originally started reading YA when I was looking for more books by some of my favorite Adult authors. I read Rachel Caine's Weather Warden series and came across her Morganville series when I was looking for more. Myrnin is one of my favorite vampires in any book and I enjoyed the world and characters as a whole. It was the same with Richelle Mead. I read her Georgina Kincaid series and eventually ended up loving her Vampire Academy books.
Some other favorites are: Cinda Williams Chima's Seven Realms and The Heir Chronicles (Goodreads)
Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments (first 3 books) and The Infernal Devises. (Goodreads)
Victoria Schwab's The Archived and The Near Witch (Goodreads)
Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson, The Kane Chronicles, and Heroes of Olympus (Goodreads)
Maria V Snyder's Glass series, Insiders series, and Healers series (Goodreads)
Brandon Sanderson's The Rithmatist (Goodreads)
J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series (Goodreads)
I'm sure I could keep going so just going to stop now. Hope everyone had a Great Armchair BEA week!
