I sell children's books for a living, and read almost nothing but. The first does not necessarily cause the second, as books for children and teens are better than anything in the world.

The Raven Boys (Raven Cycle)

The Raven Boys - Maggie Stiefvater It's not The Scorpio Races--nothing can be The Scorpio Races. Also it reminds me a little of this unpublished book a jackass ex wrote. That being said, there is a LOT to love about The Raven Boys, and LOTS of surprises in the twisting plot. Maggie's world is rich and layered; her characters complicated and startlingly funny. This is the kind of smart YA that makes me want to go look things up; the kind that has me re-reading passages to get deeper into the characters' heads. (I was lucky enough to read this in manuscript.)
