The Hunger Games is the only one I've read from your list. I'll look out for some of the others you've recommended.

If you're looking for other YAs, The Gathering, White Cat, Red Glove and Incarceron are all good. 0.4 (Human.4) is a great tween science fiction.

You always have awesome monthly stats! A couple of those books I'd like to read.
Happy February reading!

Thank you. I was on vacation for much of January. Now that I'm back in school and getting up early to excercise, my reading stats are dropping.
