Help me out?
I'm a teen and I've basically gotten tired with all the Sarah Dessen books (I read most of them), and I need some new ideas. I'm into girly books, but mystery stuff is ok.
I've already read Twilight and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, so none of those.
Have any ideas?

Have you tried Remembering Raquel by Vivian Vande Velde? That's some great fiction there, AND it actually has meaning and some emotional resonance for guys too. That's the "girliest" book I can think of that I've actually read.
I think you need to broaden your spectrum; try to read things that don't really fit your pallete right now but could be a major part of your reading in the future. Take in some more genres--just try the best they have to offer, and if you don't like it, try something else.
Hope this has helped you and good luck on your book search!

Uhm.... Meg Cabot? I've only read one book by her, but I found it very entertaining. I'm really not into "girly" books but I could suggest some awesome reads.
Some great women empowering books are:
-Trickster's Choice and Trickster's Queen(basically anything by Tamora Pierce)
-The Hunger Games
Hope that helped, somewhat at least.

One that I thought was really good was Hattie Big Sky
There are also the:
- libba bray series
- the luxe series
- the Gallagher Girls series
hopes that helps
-pg 3 of Leven Thumps and the Wrath of Ezra

OMG!!! I loved the twilight series and cant wait for the new moon movie. Oh, and sarah dessen is great, too. There are so many good books out there but the ones that i have been reading lately are Maximum Ride by James Patterson. I am telling you, you wont be able to put it down.
The city of bones, the city of ashes and the city of glass. It is an amazing series.
The one that i have most recently been reading is the fever series by karen moning. Dark Fever, Blood Fever and Fae Fever. They are amazing, but if you're not into those you might like books by scott westerfeld (Uglies, pretties and specials) or mary higgins clark, Lois duncan is a really good mystery book, too.

Well you could try the Hunger Games... If you're into Greek myths told from a teen girl's point of view try Oh. My. Gods. And its sequel Goddess Boot Camp by Tera Lynn Childs. If you want to try a more fantasy realm, Eon and Eona by Alison Goodman are about dragons (don't worry, it's not cheesy or too manly or whatever.). Maybe The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa or The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
Hope these suggestions work!
