Maybe if you try The Mortal Instruments, or Witch and Wizard.
The Mortal Instruments is by Cassandra Clare, and Witch and Wizard is by James Patterson.

A really good book trilogy that isn't really all the well known in the Legends of the Duskwalker Trilogy by Jay Posey.

Oooh, I got one!
I heard Rick Riordan has other series that uses mythology too.
The Kane Chronicles, and Magnus Chase.
Kane Chronicles are the Gods of Egypt, and Magnus Chase is the Gods of Norse Mythology (but I SWEAR if they say Loki...)

I know this sounds lame but the Wizard of Oz books cuz they're written really well and there are 14 altogether so you can read as many or as little as you like! Also it is fantasy and imagination so anything can happen!

A couple of lesser-known, but good books:

The Dust Lands series (argh forgot the author's name!) It's a post-apocalyptic story, similar to the Hunger Games. Downside: it's written without quotation marks and with deliberate misspellings, to show the protagonist's illiteracy, so it is hard to read.

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. It's funny and relatable, especially for introverts, bookworms and fanfiction or slash writers. Downside: a fair bit of swearing.

And Mrs. Peregrine's Home For Particular Children, and maybe The Invention Of Hugo Cabret, it has a lot of pages but 2/4 of those pages are pictures, you'll love them!

I'll list a few of my favorites...
The Help by Kathryn Stockett (even though it has something to do about the Civil rights movement, it is a really interesting piece of historical fiction- so good, in fact, I hardly even thought about the time period it was set in. This book has realistic, likable characters, interesting plot line, and it touches on key points and morals that get you thinking)
The Stand and The Death Zone by Steven King (while the latter has a terrible name, it See More▼

Also, I remembered the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. That series is really interesting with relatable characters.
And another good book is The Green Glass Sea. It's a bit dry, also a historical fiction, but the ending made the books worth it to me. I've heard there is a sequel, but I haven't read it.

It's really not that bad. The only souls that are eaten are the souls of evil beings. Soul Eater is also the name of one of the main characters.
