Looking for book suggestions for reading.

I'm currently finishing up "Fall of Hyperion" by Dan Simmons. Good books, but I don't think I'm going to go on to Endymion and the others. A bit too complex for my brain to handle at the moment.

I've decided I may go more into urban fantasy, since the only examples of urban fantasy I've read are the October Daye books by Seanan McGuire and the Harry Dresden books by Jim Butcher, both of which are great series. So I need suggestions for good urban fantasy.

I'm also looking for suggestions in YA fantasy or scifi. I also like YA conventional fiction as well. YA authors I like: J. K. Rowling, Philip Pullman, Monica Hughes, Gary Paulsen, and Maureen Johnson. There may be others, but if so, I forget offhand.

I also liked "Mockingbird" by Kathryn Erskine and "Thirteen Reasons Why" by Jay Asher.
