I don't know that I'd dismiss all those books as not creative or interesting--I haven't read them, and it's entirely possible some are quite good--but they look very similar and tend to have similar premises (judging from back cover copy), so they're going to appeal to a particular audience.

Looking at your LJ, you might like Alaya Johnson's Spirit Binders trilogy. I don't think it's YA per se, although the protagonist starts out as a teenager (creating marketing confusion!), but they're very rich and fascinating books.
