Best Books for Teenagers

These are some of my favorite teenage/young adult books.

The Top Ten

1 The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins

It's one of the best sci-fi adventure books I've read so far! Between this and Twilight? Please, The Hunger Games all the way.

I can't believe that books like city of bones is not on this list when twilight is. If you want to read twilight I'm giving you good advice because it ruined my life.

It's my favorite book. I recommend this to anyone who loves action. This book kept me on the edge, and I didn't want to put it down. I read all 3 books in 4 days.

I love this book! EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE A CHANCE TO READ IT I LOVE IT! I'm 13 I should know ;D

2 Harry Potter - J. K Rowling

Better than anything else. Should surely surpass Hunger Games

3 The Adventures of Tom Sawyer - Mark Twain
4 Twilight - Stephenie Meyer

I read the books and they were just as bad as the movies.

Who added this? - DynastiSugarPop

5 The Last Song - Nicholas Sparks

I can totally relate to Ronnie because my mom made me spend a whole summer with my dad in Florida and I met the love of my life their. My little brother had to go too. I think that teenagers can relate to Ronnie if their parents are divorced. Excellent job Nicholas Sparks.

6 Whiteout - Ken Follett
7 Dear John - Nicholas Sparks
8 Just Like That - Marsha Qualey
9 The Lucky One - Nicholas Sparks
10 Percy Jackson & the Olympians - Rick Riordan

Hmm. I thought it will be higher.

The Contenders

11 Left Behind: A Novel of the Earth's Last Days - Tim LaHaye, Jerry B. Jenkins
12 Pretty Little Liars - Sara Shepard

It's one of the few things that's got me addicted to it and the first book I can say. Awesome. Seriously awesome. The story structure's amazing and it gets us hooked to it. And Emily's character inspires me personally and it DOES have a message if you look close enough. Amazing BOOK! Every teenage girl(the ones who're not obsessed with VDs or supernatural) who lives in the real world must read it I highly recommend. It became a part of my life.

Amazing work, Sara
