I'm assuming you don't want Fantasy type stuff? I'd go with anything by Sarah Dessen. She's one of my favorite authors. Her books are (in order by year) That Summer, Someone Like You, Keeping the Moon, Dreamland, This Lullaby, The Truth About Forever, Just Listen, Lock and Key, Along for the Ride, What Happened to Goodbye, and her newest book is The Moon and More. You don't need to read them in order, as they really have nothing to do with each other. I hope I helped!

I think the Beka Cooper series by Tamora Pierce is absolutely amazing. It's about a girl who trains as a guard in a violent, chaotic city, and is written like it's her diary. Also, I love books by Stephen King and Erin Hunter.

I think the most important types of books do you like, my personal recommendation, you can see some of the Chicken Soup, or some books to develop good character. Look at some of the best, people doing things related books. I personally think that, as long as they like, reading is a good thing for us.

Teen girls often struggle with self image, fitting in, hormonal challenges etc. It's a tough time to be a teen. The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer is an easy to read, brilliantly written book that, if read, contemplated and understood, will help every teen grow up to be an amazing, well balanced, bff to all who know her. Every person who I've reco'd this book to has called me after they've read it to say "thanks, that book was written about me and was exactly what I needed"

Well, I am a teen (14) and I really love reading books. I am already done with Harry Potter (come on!) and I am never gonna touch twilight. You can read Heroes of Olympus (series)
Or you can try Percy Jackson ( I read it when I was 12 actually). If you're done with that, I think you should read Meg Cabot stuff cuz she usually writes books which appeals teens!
Here are some books that I have read till now (started at age 13).
1-To Kill a Mocking Bird
2- The Hobbit (I loved it!)
3- The lord of the rings ( I read it when i was 10 but)
4- Inheritance series (a personal fave!)
5- My sister's keeper
Actually, once I start talking about books, its impossible for me to shut up. I really hope you try out some of these books ( and like it!). If you haven't found this small list ok, I think you should ask a librarian. She'll help you out the best.
Hope I helped. Let me know!

The Wake series by Lisa McMann (book 1 is Wake). I had to get used to McMann's writing style. It seemed really.....impersonal at first, but the story was so good that I gave it a chance, and got used to it. I also recommend Graceling by Kristan Cashore. Very smart writing.

((Hmm.... As for what I am reading, I can only recommend the historical novels and biographies. My favourites are 'Elizabeth: Apprenticeship' by David Starkey and Sienkiewicz's 'Deluge', though it's better to read the Trilogy in chronological order, so starting with 'With Fire and Sword'. And besides history, Harry Potter is great as well <3 ))

You should get to know these authors. They're part of the canon of American Literature, and these two books are great insights to women, past.

I personally enjoy Maggie Stiefvater's series of Shiver, Linger, and Forever. It's basically a book about a girl and a wolf. It's very descriptive and it has some romance in it. I find it interesting, because the point of view changes to various characters throughout all the books.
