The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
Cinder is about a cyborg, named Cinder who lives with her stepmother and step sisters. (sound familiar?) Anyway, Cinder is a mechanic who is hired by the prince, Kai, who needs her to fix his droid for some unknown, but seemingly important, reason. Their story is filled with twists and turns as they fight for both their countries and each other. Along the way, they meet Scarlet, a french farm girl, Wolf, a genetically modified human, Thorne, a cocky ex-pilot, Cress, an intelligent hacker, Winter, a beautiful princess, Jason, a royal guard, and Iko, a friendly droid. Each person has their own story which will lead them all to each other.
The Lunar Chronicles is one of the few series that we’ve read that has several individual storylines that all converge into one amazing adventure! Although these books are based on classic fairy tales, they seem like their own stories. These books are a must read!
To all the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han

Lifelike characters, coupled with seamless storytelling, make this one of the most beautifully realistic YA series. Lara Jean’s quirky personality makes her all too relatable, and her whirlwind romance will have you longing for more. Additionally, her bond with her father and sisters makes the characters even more lovable.

This series is INCREDIBLE! The characters are so lifelike, and realistic. There is never a dull point. Marie Lu does an incredible job building her world and story to make it unique, enchanting and equally heartbreaking. You will laugh and cry with the characters and the series will leave you searching for more.
The Selection by Kiera Cass

America only entered for her family because if you participate your family is sent a compensation, which her family desperately needed.
