MandaBear, it's a really good trilogy, but it is super dark. The last book left me in tears.
I read quite a bit. What are your tastes like, ChunkyBoots? Mine are all over the place. A friend recently recommended Holly Black's new book to me (The Coldest Girl in Cold Town). I didn't want to like it because I'm sick of vampires, but it was actually really good.
Another book that I loved was a Christmas gift--Ally Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half is hilarious! Best gift I received.
