  50. Artemis Fowl and the last guardian / Eoin Colfer
The Hunger Games series and  The Mortal Instruments series dominated the Young Adult Top 10 for 2013, holding the seven of the top eight places, separated only by The fault in our stars by John Green (who has three books in the Top 50, the only author without a series to appear more than once in the list).
The highest Australian author on the list is Gabrielle Lord with the second book (February) of her Conspiracy 365 series. at #26 (the first book of the series  (January) finished #45). This is a great, fast paced, action packed series you should check out if you haven’t already.
