Re: Favourite YA Novels 2010 onwards?
There's a lot of good urban-fantasy YA recently. Two that spring immediately to mind at Holly Black's Curse Workers (first book: White Cat) and Maggie Stiefvater's Raven Cycle (first book: The Raven Boys).

In the realm of more traditional world-fantasy, I thoroughly enjoyed Rachel Hartman's Seraphina, but I don't think there's any more of that series yet.

Ooo, I loved Seraphina. Can't wait for the next of that series.

And! I just remembered  :D there's Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series... 4 of those books. Super fun. It was the urban-fantasy quote that triggered my memory.

Re: In creating your own magic system,
For creating your own magic system, I've found Brandon Sanderson's three laws very helpful. They're not just good for creating magic systems. They're good storytelling principles as well.

And just to provide an easy link to those three laws... http://brandonsanderson.com/sandersons-first-law/
