I really enjoyed a book called Matched based kind of in the future about a girl who gos to her match banquet were she will meet her future husband and is surprised when her best friend pops up on the screen but then the screen changes and another boy, Ky pops up on the screen but suddenly disappears and it gos back to her best friend. There are 3 books and they are all very good reads.
My daughter loves anything by Sarah Dessen! Also, Caroline B. Cooney has some really great realistic fiction books...one about an emergency room; an airplane crash; twins, etc. She also wrote The Face on the Milk Carton and its sequel books. Another great author is Margaret Peterson Haddix...anything written by her is great...makes you think. Haddix wrote the "Shadow Children" series...you might have seen them/know them as the "Among the..." books - Among the Hidden, Among the Brave, etc. All are wonderful! Don't forget the classics, too...Little Women, Heidi, The Secret Garden, etc.
The Hunger Games, Percy Jackson & The Olympians, Matched, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, The Mortal Instruments, Some girls like The Clique, The Gossip Girl, The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants. I have heard of Wicked Lovely and Nevermore but those MIGHT be above your age so I would suggest checking into them first or waiting a few years?
I really like Caroline B. Cooney and Eva Ibbotson for actual YA books.A few people have mentioned the Matched trilogy, and that's quite good. In general, there are so many books you should read that aren't specifically for teens (or girls). I would advise against most of the books people have mentioned (especially Twilight) unless it's only because you have nothing to talk about with your peers. Actually, just don't read Twilight, even if you think it will give you something to talk about with peers. For books that aren't specifically YA: A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man; Little Women; 1984; The Calligrapher's Daughter; Not For Sale; Suite Français; Water for Elephants; Eats, Shoots & Leaves; The Bell Jar; Crime and Punishment; Adventures of Huckleberry Finn; Harry Potter; The Cricket in Times Square; The Secret of the Ruby Ring; The Secret Garden. Most of those are above your age group, but many are also read in high schools. And, of course, some are below your age group but are still good to read.
the hunger games!!! but if you are really squeamish like me, be careful. people say I'm squeamish, but so lethal. I have beat up who knows how many boys more than twice my size. I even took on 2 boys, both about twice my size, at the same time!!! one got a black eye, the other a pretty badly bruised leg and arm. they told some crazy lies to save face, but it did not work for them. my friends who were watching backed me up when I told the whole story to whoever asked.
The Faithgirlz boarding school mysteries by Kristi Holl (I read one of them (book 3) and it was REALLY good and it wasn't scary if that's what ur thinking; book 1: Vanished; Book 2: Betrayed; Book 3: Burned; and Book 4: Poisoned)
11 Birthdays Rules Cinder The Giver by Lois Lowry Crank I am the messenger Too kill a mockingbird by Harper Lee Speak Uglies (it's a series) The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie (I have this it's funny) Will Grayson, Will Grayson (about two teen boys who both have the same name) Go ask Alice You don't know me (I LOVE THIS BOOK!! <3;THE ENDING IS KINDA SAD THOUGH) Stargirl Forever... The Delirium serious The Princess Diaries series The truth about forever Just listen Monster (not as scary as it sounds) This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen
harry potter, Percy Jackson, hunt for the seventh, lord of the rings, the princess diaries, Stargirl, the time travelers, whatever after if the shoe fits, beauty bop, Ramona series, Pandora get jealous and the rest of the series, dork diaries, the chronicles of narnia, AND HOOT.

Don't read Twilight or 50 Shades of Grey. DO NOT.
Harry Potter is good! The Hunger Games isn't that spectacular actually...Percy Jackson is good as well. Dormia is a good book, it has a sequel too. Frank Peretti is a good author, also Ted Dekker. Terry Pratchett is good, too, his books can be confusing but are hilarious, nerdy, and awesome. Maximum Ride is a good series, it starts with 'The Angel Experiment'. Inkheart, Inkspell, Inkdeath are all by Cornelia Funke, who also wrote The Thief Lord and Dragon Rider. Her writing is awesome. But J.K. Rowling is epic...her writing is amazing and you can read Harry Potter over and over. The Lord of the Rings are my favorite books of all time. Hard to get into, a bit slow at the beginning, but are amazing. Watch the movies after you read the books, it'll make them easier to understand. Airman by Eoin Colfer is great. He also wrote the Artemis Fowl series--great writing, a bit repetitive, like Maximum Ride. The Gallagher Girl books...idk if that's what they're called. The first one is 'I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You'. Also a bit repetitive.
haha I'm 13 too! Ok so books I've read that I really liked were: Hunger games Beautiful creatures (series) Prom nights from hell a walk to remember, the rescue, at first sight, true believer, last song, the lucky one. (all by Nicholas sparks) Boy in the stripped pajamas The holllow Kissed by an angel (series) Until the end Thirst (series) Remember me
The fault in our stars. Life of Pi. Harry potter. The hobbit. A tree grows in Brooklyn( this is a really good book about making the transition from child to teen and later young adult) Hunger games. The book thief. Maximum ride.
And I always liked chicken soup for the soul :) they have alot of different choices for teens and I loved how the stories were all true and varied. From real love stories to tough stuff to mothers know best. It's a nice series :)
Chicken Soup for the Soul The Lovely Bones 13 Reasons Why Catcher In the Rye The Last Song The Twilight Saga Boy in the Striped Pajamas She's So Dead to Us He's So Not Worth It Hunger Games Trilogy Harry Potter Series Pretty Little Liars Series
Little Women, Tom Sawyer, a tale of two cities, war and peace, the Bible, Chilton reference books, A fully abridged recipe book, carpenters manuals, history books, geography, mathematics, Tabers, Webster's Medical Dictionary, etc.... To pick one book above all others that will teach you all you will ever need to know on how to become whatever you want to be by applying your skills and your knowledge through experience,,,there is only one Bible :-) :-) :-)
hunger games (trilogy) jack tumor House of night series Ask me no questions inkheart series smile (only if you like graphic novels) out of my mind deep dark dangerous mocking bird dear dumb diary (series) these are all the books that ive read and liked
Well, it really depends on what U r interested in. Me, I'm a HUGE horror fan, so I love the book "the ruins by Scott Smith" and most books by Christoper pike (he's like the mid point between Steven King and rl stine, perfectly awesome writer!) And DON"T read Twilight (lol the vampires are more like fairy's then vampires, they twinkle in the sun) Plus if u need to read about vamps just look at Pike's series "the thirst" they are pretty good, not my fave, but since vamps are so popular now I would recommend it.
Lord of the Rings, anything Percy Jackson, Inkheart series, and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (I haven't read it, but it sounds really good). Really, any book that you can find; there's a whole world of them out there, so don't hesitate. :)
Scat The Warriors Series b Walls within Walls The Running Wind 50 shades of Gray From Bad to Cursed Infinity Ring Wildfire Run Storm Chaser Killer Pizza Love Aubrey I have way WAY more, but these are all I can name right now. HOPE THIS HELPS!!! (:
Series or Trios: These are becoming movies soon. -Caster Chronicles -Tigers Curse -Hunger Games -The Mortal Instruments
^^^Thats not all of my reading list. The rest couldn't fit so I'll be back' but I am 14 so I thought I'd recommend. Sorry it's crowded didn't have enough space. But the titles are separated by the -. HOPE IT HELPED!!
There's tons of books you can read at age 13. If you're looking for romance, You should read Matched. There's also the Outsiders. (not really a romance book) Or there are diaries like Ask Amy (Go Ask Amy?) Maybe even Speak. But there's my favorite ... The Fourth Stall. I hope these interest you!! :) Have fun reading <3
HARRY POTTER OR DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also House of Night or Beautiful Creatures.
Harry Potter is ALWAYS a fantastic read!!! The Hunger Games are also REALLY awesome! People say that Twilight is stupid, but it's an ok novel. Also, I'm a giant fan of the Maximum Ride series and the Inheritance Cycle series.
