The Sarah Dessen novels are phenominal! I love The tomorrow Girls series the titles are 1. Tomorrow Girls behind the gates 2. Tomorrow Girls run for cover 3. Tomorrow Girls with the enemy 4. Tomorrow Girls set me free
Also, Eragon is good, I'm reading it right now. I loved 2 of the Julie Johnston novels: 1. A Very Fine Line 2. Hero of Lesser causes I also really liked 1.Eggs by Jerry Spinelli 2. The hunger games 3. Matched by: Ally Condie 4. The maze runner series by James Dashner
Hunger Games! Also the Penderwick series, if your a little younger. Ooh and Maximum Ride series!!! You can go on wattpad.com if you want to read some stories written by aspiring authors. Check out Night and Day by deeteegirl if you get a chance. Remember to vote, comment, like, or tweet if you think it is good!
Memoirs of a Geisha is a favourite of mine, very well written, first person, very well researched and true to Japanese culture, and it could pass as a true story very easily, though it isn't.
though generally i base my favourites on Authors, not books. in which case, Tamora Peirce for some teenage fantasy, Terry Pratchett for some hilarious fantasy, Jodi Piccoult for some interesting and controversial novels about right and wrong, and Tami Hoag for some extremely well written thrilling crime. Tami Hoag is by far my favourite author.
for a teenage girl i recommend Tamora Peirce, she writes mostly about girls and women fighting to prove that they are just as damn awesome as the boys. set in a medieval time with knights, kings, mages, ECT.
the rest of this answer is in the first comment of this answer. it isn't long, so please take the time to read it.
If you want a true story get Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell ( you tube him) he was a Navy Seal who four man team was ambushed in the hindu kush mountains in '05. He was the only survivor and endured a lot to do so.
OMG!!!! there are so many good ones: Harry potter, little house on the prarie, series of unfortunate events, the hunger games, twilight, to kill a mockingbird, a wrinkle in time, the little prince, witch and wizard!
I am terrible at picking favorites, but here are my tops. The Wolves of Mercy Falls, Percy Jackson, Mortal Instruments, Infernal Devices and the Hunger Games. They're all fantasy but I love them all so much!!
