For a more comical approach, there's two universes I'll recommend.
Tales of the Dark Forest and the Illmoor Chronicles

I just have to mention Laini Taylor's excellent Dreamdark books Silksinger and Blackbringer here. I have read most of what's been mentioned in this thread and Taylor's books are by far some of the best .
I strongly recommend that you check them out.

One of the YA authors I have enjoyed to some degree with
But not the very young books. Im speaking of the Teens Fae stories - urban fantasy
I really enjoyed -
I didnt like Ironside quite so much though, that follows Valiant.
And the latest book - White Cat - takes some getting going this one. Got some good ideas, but very slow, especially for this author as I normally find her quite engaging

I have a lot of the same favorites mentioned when this thread was young, but I've discovered some new favorites: The Mortal Instruments series, by Cassandra Clare. Incarceron and Sapphique by Catherine Fisher, also her series The Oracle Prophecies. The Seeker Chronicles, by Betsy James, especially the third book, Listening at the Gate.

Locked in the Golden Cage
Some YA novels / sets I've grown up with...
The Mortal Engines series by Phillip Reeve is one of my favourites, along with a free book by Nix; Shade's Children. Also Phillip Pullman's Old Kingdom trilogy as well as William Nicholson's Wind and Fire trilogy. I own the complete Keys to the Kingdom series as well by Garth Nix as well as the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials is also there somewhere.
