Two YA book series I'd suggest reading, and why? :)

Alrighty then, as I've no idea what I'm supposed to do on this bit, I'll just make a list of some of my favourite books and my thoughts on said books! :D 
From now on, I'll be posting each time I read a book, not like anybody is reading this, but hey! Gives me somewhere to vent and boast. :P
First up, YA;

Tiger Saga by Colleen Houck 

'The last thing teenager Kelsey Hayes thought she'd be doing over the summer was meeting Ren, a mysterious white tiger and cursed Indian prince when she learns she alone can break the Tiger's curse, Kelsey's life is turned upside-down. The unlikely duo journeys halfway around the world to piece together an Indian prophecy, find a way to free the man trapped by a centuries-old spell, and discover the path to their true destiny. '

-- This is one of my all time favourite series. I've read it about four times, though the newest book Tiger's Voyage I've only read once, so far at least ;). I adore tiger's for starters and there is a yummy love triangle between the main girl Kelsey and the two cursed brothers Ren and Kishan. 
Usually I root for one guy in particular the whole way through but with this series at first I was like, Go Kishan! Then I was like, awww, poor Ren, he should get the girl. So, I was constantly back and forth until eventually I adored them both. First time this has ever happened with me. :P
This book is a must read if you enjoy YA shapeshifter books, love triangle and a curse that is meant to be broken! :')

Next up is; 

Maximum Ride by James Patterson 

'In James Patterson's blockbuster series, fourteen-year-old Maximum Ride, better known as Max, knows what it's like to soar above the world. She and all the members of the "flock"--Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman and Angel--are just like ordinary kids--only they have wings and can fly. It may seem like a dream come true to some, but their lives can morph into a living nightmare at any when Angel, the youngest member of the flock, is kidnapped and taken back to the "School" where she and the others were experimented on by a crew of wack jobs. Her friends brave a journey to blazing hot Death Valley, CA, to save Angel, but soon enough, they find themselves in yet another nightmare--this one involving fighting off the half-human, half-wolf "Erasers" in New York City. Whether in the treetops of Central Park or in the bowels of the Manhattan subway system, Max and her adopted family take the ride of their lives. Along the way Max discovers from her old friend and father-figure Jeb--now her betrayed and greatest enemy--that her purpose is save the world--but can she?'

-- Now, what to say about this one.. I've followed this series since the first book came out and the very last one is due out the end of this year. I'll be sad when it's over, but I am glad to finally find out what happens to the Flock/s. 
This series has some pretty sweet romance in it, though it doesn't properly appear until around about the third book. Then an interesting triangle further on too. Plus, hello! THEY HAVE WINGS! Can't get any cooler than that now, can it?
The main Character 'Max' is a kick-ass heroine, she's witty has a quirky sense of humour and of course, kick's ass, literally. 
Fang VS Dillan, who do you think should have Max? 
Personally I'm totally on Fangs side. :')
Oh, and if you enjoy this series you should totally check out the Maximum Ride Graphic Novels, Offt.

-- Well, that's it for this one but I'll be posting more soon! :)
