DH, DD, DS and I are going to the Netherlands for three weeks to visit my side of the family and I wanted to buy three or four books to keep myself a little occupied since I'll have a lot of free-time on my hands.

My family lives in a small town called Goor and it gets a bit boring sometimes, so I'd like to have a passtime on hand. 

I love teen fantasy novels, I like to say I'm still a 16 year old at heart, lol.

I read the first 50 Shades novel and I hated it, so please save yourself a bit of time and don't suggest I read it, because I am not going near that garbage again unless its for a million dollars.

Suggestions would be appreciated. :)

Julier Marillier is my favorite fantasy author. Wildwood Dancing is a teen novel by her. Did you read The Hunger Games trilogy?

Yes, I read The Hunger Games in early 2011 and I loved it. :) Thanks for the suggestions, I'll look into it.
