Welcome, Emmie! So glad your joining in on the Challenge! I can give you some suggestions of family books I loved if you are interested in giving one a try. Here are a few of my favorites:
My Life Next Door (My Life Next Door, #1) by Huntley Fitzpatrick Flat-Out Love (Flat-Out Love, #1) by Jessica Park Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson Slammed (Slammed, #1) by Colleen Hoover Making Faces by Amy Harmon Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen I think family is an intricate part in each of these stories, but it's not only about family. You could even do Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell , sisters and the father are apart of the story. It can be as simple as a parent or sibling is also a character in the story and that covers a lot of books.

Trust me Hunger Games gets better, it depends what kind of books you really like. If you don't like sci-fi type books I can see where it might be hard for you.
