Well, right now I'm a senior in high school,and as a result of this, next fall I plan to leave behind the YA room for good. Before I do that, are there any books I absolutely HAVE to read? I like sci-fi and fantasy, and I've already read the Twilight books, so please don't mention them. Thanks for your help!

You absolutely must read the following books that have changed my life:
Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen
North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
The Giver by Lois Lowry
Girl v. Boy by Yvonne Collins, Sandy Rideout
How Not to be Popular by Jennifer Ziegler
I hope this helps, I really loved them, so maybe you will too.

Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is my favorite! The second book, Catching Fire is amazing,I'm reading it right now!
Hope It Helps!

I won't make this absurdly long, since you've probably read most of the decent teen books already.
-The Forrest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
-Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld (I haven't read it yet but it promises to be fantastic)
-Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzgerald (I think that's her last name....)
-Skinned and Crashed by Robin Wasserman
-Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Some suggestions for the adult sci-fi fantasy genre follows:
-The Study series by Maria V. Snyder (any of her books are amazing)
-The Glass series by Maria V. Snyder
-The Deepgate Codex by Alan Campbell (the first and second are the best out of the three, but there is also a companion novel that I haven't read yet)
-Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
-Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett (basically anything by these two authors is going to be awesome)
I also suggest Kelly Armstrong novels, simply because I like her teen series so I'm assuming her adult novels are just as good.
