What Would You Recommend? - Cassandra Claire

This is a question I get asked all the time working in the bookstore: "What would you recommend for somebody who loved "_________"? (fill in the blank)" Usually I can come up with something, but that something can be a bit of a wild guess if it's not a book or genre I normally read. This is where you helpful people come in. If you have a suggestion, I'd love to hear it.

This week I've decided to dip into the list of books I want to read at some unspecified point in the future. Cassandra Claire's series The Mortal Instruments has been very popular in the bookstore, starting with the first book, City of Bones. I've heard so many people raving about the series that I do intend to read at least the first book sometime in the near future. In the mean time though, I still have to find books to recommend to people who've read this series.

I know the Mortal Instruments series is definitely teen geared urban fantasy, but I honestly don't know too much more than that. What else should I recommend to go with it? P.C. Cast's books? The Hunger Games? What would you recommend?
