Best Books for Teen Girls

My personal favourite books for teenage girls. Check out these books, they're really awesome.

The Top Ten

1 The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky

Great book! Take it from a nerd! And with Logan Lerman and Emma Watson acting in this movie it's a great idea to catch up!

Charlie is just so sweet. I just want to give him a hug all the time! It really teaches you about people, and that everything isn't what it seems. - salvatoreswift

Fab story! The movies really great too and the ending just shocked me! A must read!

I watched the movie. I don't have the book. :( - AnonymousChick

2 The Last Song - Nicholas Sparks

I agree with the first comment. This book is really gripping. To tell you honestly, I cried a lot while reading this book. It's just so heart-wrenching and addictive. The main character demonstrated maturity and compassion. It's emotional and depressing in the end but still has a happy ending.

This is a really amazing book. It captures so many emotions and I can really relate to Ronnie. The whole story is brilliant. - salvatoreswift

This is my favorite book! It has action everywhere! A true love story! A sad ending! Definitely is not predictable! Perfect for teens!

3 Just Listen - Sarah Dessen

This is just such a deep book. We try so hard to be perfect, many times for someone else's sake, though we might be miserable the whole time. The characters, the ideas this book puts in your head, just everything about this book is right on. Amazing. Changed how I think and in a good way.

This is just such a good book. The oh-so-perfect child isn't really that perfect at all, and this is another book about how everything isn't what it seems. It's sad, but amazing. - salvatoreswift

Sarah Dessen is an amazing author I am going to read all of her books another good one is dreamland

My all-time favourite novel. This has made me just LOVE Sarah Dessen.

4 The Princess Diaries - Meg Cabot

This series is just so funny and relevant. Even though hardly anyone is a princess like Mia, her problems are very real, and the diary format makes it very enjoyable to read. - salvatoreswift

I love this book series SO MUCH! These books should be first because Meg Cabot is the best author EVER! - taylorswift24878

I love it, it's such a relatable book. I suggest this song to all the teenage girls.

Amazing book, one of the best I have ever read.

5 The Notebook - Nicholas Sparks

How life changes you, how people change, and how nothing turns out how you'd think. - salvatoreswift

6 The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins

This book changed my life, it made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me fall in love with the boy with the bread, I also made me finish all the books even when I didn't liked reading (i was the kind of person who would look for the summary or for the movie instead of looking for the book), THIS BOOK CHANGED MY LIFE

This books are the perfect combination of action, suspense, mystery, drama, and love.. That's what makes them SO ADDICTIVE... The writing and the history are awesome so everything together makes them GREAT books.

This is such a good book I cannot put into words how good this book is the movie is awesome but the book is 100 times better I recommend this to anyone who likes to read stories that keep you on edge throughout the whole book I absolutley love this amazing novel! A great read and the second and third books are amazing as well

I found this trilogy deep and flowing. As a fellow reader, I'd definitely recommend it to other teens.

7 Paper Towns - John Green

This book can't be explained, the story sounds pretty simple but there's so much more than that, the way the main character's view on things are pictured, the dialogues, the characters themselves.. Everything about this book is wonderful. You HAVE to read it.

Such an amazing book. I can't describe it, you just have to trust me, and read it. - salvatoreswift

This book was perfect. The characters were vivid, the plot was intriguing and I couldn't put it down! - Starsparks

Amazing book. - Catacorn

8 Along for the Ride - Sarah Dessen

Another amazing Sarah Dessen book. The relationships between the reader and the main character are so established, you feel everything with her, and root for her and her friends so much. It's really great. - salvatoreswift

9 The Fault In Our Stars - John Green

Such an incredible book! I am now in love with John Green! This book is inspiring, smart and relates with living life and trying to find the positives.

Please any book here cannot even come close to the john green masterpiece..Hail hazel grace and Augustus waters

This is an amazing book, I can't understand why it's not on the top ten! The movie was also amazing and it's the best book I ever read.

Augustus x Hazel FOR LIFE! - Catacorn

10 Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist - Rachel Cohn

Such a wicked book. Music is everything, for one night only. It's brilliant. - salvatoreswift

The Newcomers

? Maximum Ride - James Patterson

Love it

The Contenders

11 Dash and Lilly's Book of Dares - Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist is the 2nd book after Dash & Lilly's Book of Dares. I have seen Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist with Michael Cera and Kat Dennings. - playstationfan66

I really want to do this now, ha. It's such an original idea, and I love the way it turns out. So good. - salvatoreswift

12 Twilight - Stepanie Meyer

To be honest I haven't read the book yet. But I have seen all the movies and when I saw the first one, I immediately fell in love. Something about them just makes your heart race, not in a scary way but because everything in the movie is so interesting, you just can't wait to figure out what happens next. I wish that they would make more twilight books/movies because I think if they kept going on with Renesmee's life story and how her and Jacob became a thing, I honestly think that would have been so interesting. I'm not saying that the ones that they made now weren't interesting because trust me they are seriously one of the best series I have ever came upon. A little about the whole series: Bella moved down to Forks because she felt her mom would be more happy (not going to spoil the reason why). On Bella's first day at school she had to sit next to Edward in one of her classes. At first Edward wouldn't talk to her because he wanted her blood so badly, but a few days later he ...more

The book is way better than the movie! I found the movie utterly boring.. But the the book is quite interesting..

Few of them says this novel is a gig. But believe me this the best book I have ever read in my life; espically Breaking Dawn. You should really read this. IT'S AWESOME!

Oh! FINALLY I found some fans. Yes, I agree- it's one of the best books ever (don't forget harry potter! )

14 This is a Love Story - Jessica Thompson

The cliche isn't always so cliche. - salvatoreswift

15 City of Bones - Cassandra Clare

I totally think the "Shadowhunters" series by abc family is crap but because of my deep regard for both the The Mortal Instruments book and the author, I look forward to watching it every week. If not for anything but to have a good laugh at a feeble and disastrous attempt to replicate an amazing story.

16 The Book Thief
17 Warriors - Erin Hunter

What is this doing below Twilight? Warriors is far better that Twilight will ever be for many reasons.

18 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - J. K. Rowling

Creative, fast-paced, and it keeps you entertained every page.

19 Shiver - Maggie Stiefvater

Defiantly the best teen book I've ever read. With a mix of romance and fantasy, Shiver will become a classic book about werewolves.

20 Eleanor & Park - Rainbow Rowell

I love this book, it's very beautiful

Loved reading this so much

21 All the Bright Places
22 The Clique - Lisi Harrison

Its really really awesome! I LOVE THE SERIES GET IT NOW!

23 1984 - George Orwell

This technically isn't a book for teens, but it's a classic so anyone can enjoy it. - Starsparks

24 Flowers In the Attic
25 Rock 'N' Roll Sweetheart - Laurie Lykken
26 Pretty Little Liars

The books are just awesome! In my opinion even better than the show which is great too... Sara Shepard is incredibly talented!

27 Beautiful Creatures - Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

Romance and fantasy and magic. Highly recommended, amazing

28 The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

Fantastic book. Totally relatable and not one moment during the time I was reading it was I not totally satisfied and overwhelmingly happy. I felt a connection to the characters that goes beyond the imagination. Truly amazing.

So cute, so real. SO RELATABLE. For any teenage girl who understands having controlling parents and struggles with figuring out what you want.

29 Things Left Unsaid by Stephanie Hemphill

So many of us go through a dark time in which we start acting rebellious or we fall in with the wrong crowd and have to climb our way back up again. This is a story in poems (don't let that put you off-it just makes it better and this is coming from a girl who hates stories written in poem form) about a straight A goody goody who feels lost in her friends and parents shadows, who falls on with a bad girl. She changes and starts to question everything she has ever known. She has to discover who she really is and stand up for herself. It's a truly amazing book. It got me through a lot of rough times.

30 Deadline - Chris Crutcher

Smart ass 18 year old guy who finds out his senior year will be his last year, and he is determined to make his mark. One of the funniest, saddest, greatest books I've ever read. A little too democratic for me at parts, but as I am a republican, that is to be expected. Still a fantastic book. Read it! You won't regret it!

31 Delirium - Lauren Oliver

Living in a world where love is a disease, all Lena Halloway wants is to be cured of it. That is, until she meets Alex. She finds that love, though it can be painful, is worth the risk. Delirium is an enticing story about love, truth, and self-sacrifice and is definitely worth the read.

32 Speak - Laurie Halse Anderson

This boo I opened my eyes to a lot of issues. It was a book that really made me feel. I think that Melinda (the main character of this book) is someone a lot of us can relate to. While we haven't all been through what Melinda had to go through during the summer before 9th grade (don't want to give spoilers if you haven't read it), we've all been bullied, we've all felt alone, and many of us have been ostracized (usually for stupid reasons). I feel like a lot of what this book says is relatable to teenagers (especially teenage girls because of the female protagonist) and like everyone should read it. It just really touched me, with it's messages and the poetic way the author words things... I love it. Read it.

Lindsay Lohan released a music CD in 2005 in which it also had the same name. - playstationfan66

33 The Homeroom Diaries - James Patterson

This book is so good in the fault in our stars Hazel read a book called An Imperial Affection and she loved it to the moon and back. Well this book is my An Imperial Affection (But better) it is so amazing I couldn't put it down! It is the best book I have ever read I bring it every ware I go

34 Bunheads
35 If There Be Thorns
36 Rose Sees Red
37 Fallen - Lauren Kate

This is one of my favorite series. It's about a girl named Lucinda Price (Luce). She is forced to go to a school called "Sword & Cross" because everyone thought that she murdered someone. The weird thing about Luce is that she can see these things she calls "shadows" that nobody else can see. At the school she meets a free-spirited girl named Arianne, a friendly girl named Penn, moody Daniel, Cam, Roland, etc. Oddly, she developed a strong attraction towards Daniel even though he has been nothing but a cold jerk towards her.

38 A Court of Thorns and Roses

Words can't fully describe how captivated this book has me. To be honest, I had my eyes rolling with the thought that this was one of those Hunger-games-themed books but man was I wrong!
The book takes some of the most unexpected -yet completely rational- twists I have ever seen, with the most intriguing love-meets-adventure story. Sarah J Maas had me loving and hating the characters passionately.(P.s it's okay to hate particular characters
. I'm sure it's what she intended) I can't imagine that everybody won't fall in love with this book as soon as they've read it.
I like the sequel -A court of Mist and Fury- better(That's when all the good stuff start), but one can't really get to it before reading ACOTAR now, can one?

39 Saint Anything- Sarah Dessen

What I really, really, really liked about this book was that it was not a Sarah Dessen book focused solely on romance, but in which romance actually was played a step down from friendship. I think that everyone has times when they feel alone or not really understood, judged, etc. and Sarah Dessen really shows relation to that through Sydney.
