If you prefer to read a story with multiple novels (but not too many) and don't mind a cliffhanger or two, then trilogies may be right for you! Check out a few young adult fiction series that complete their conflicts and plots in the third and final book of the series. You may find that a few titles also have related content, including film adaptations, prequels, and musical soundtracks, if you're inclined to keep exploring the world you chose to dive into.
