Re: What are some good teen books?

[ Edited ]

These are fantasy/steampunk/sci-fi/supernatural romance books for teens. Most will probably appeal to female readers more than male:

 

I loved

 

Hunger Games Trilogy Boxed Set. These books are action-pack and feature a female protagonist with strong male supporting characters. The society is dystopian and puts its children/teens in win or die games. (Note, the books are available separately.)

 

I also really enjoyed the action adventure/fantasy

The Mortal Instruments Boxed Set . (Books also are available separately, and the fourth book, City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments Series #4) Exclusive Edition, is scheduled for release April 5.)

 

 

I've seen very good things written about these books too:

 

 

Personal Demons (supernatural romance with a soul),

Leviathan and 

Behemoth (a steampunk action/adventure),

Hush, Hush and

Torment (Lauren Kate's Fallen Series #2) (wildly popular fallen angel romance),

Across the Universe (Sci-Fi and romance for teens),

The Throne of Fire (Kane Chronicles Series #2) and

The Exiled Queen (The Seven Realms Series) (wildly popular fantasy for tweens and teens),

Fallen (Lauren Kate's Fallen Series #1)

Torment (Lauren Kate's Fallen Series #2) and

Passion (Lauren Kate's Fallen Series #3) (supernatural romance with female protagonist),

 

Unearthly (new and popular).

 

That's all I can think of right now.

 

Also, the Bookseller Picks blog has quite a few teen recommendations. You should check it out.

 

Further, if you post a request for recommendations on the Teen board, I'm sure you'll get a a lot of suggestions.

Re: What are some good teen books?

Meant to Be is a book that I heard about on Twitter that is getting a lot of buzz. The author is a new self published author. From what everyone is saying, the book is great. I am buying it myself. Here is the link for Barnes and Noble. By the way. I love the cover, so beautiful.

Re: What are some good teen books?

How about Kelley Armstrong's Summoning series? Or Melissa Marr's Wicked Lovely series? There's also Shiver & Linger, and a couple really good ones by Kirsten Cashore. I really liked Graceling.
