Christmas Gift Buying Book Recommendations: YA Edition

The impossible task of wrapping. Or is that just me and Stitch?

So I definitely love giving book recommendations. And what better time of the year than now? Hopefully I can help at least one person find an awesome book to give to a friend or family member this holiday season.
I'm going to start with YA and than I'll do a second post with everything non-YA. I'll pick two or three different books from a bunch of genres. I'm also going to pass on mentioning the popular ones everyone knows like Harry, Hunger Games, Divergent, Cassandra Clare, etc... I love those books but I'm trying to mention lesser known books that I love and think other readers will fall in love with as well.
