Top Ten Books I Would Recommend To First Time Teen Readers
I get asked this a lot being as I am a teen myself and so I decided to make this Top Ten based on some good books to get someone started on reading.
10. The Most Obvious: Anything by John Green
However, Paper Towns is the safest first read as it doesn’t end like (you know what)
9. Divergent by Veronica Roth
In Divergent, Veronica Roth’s writing style is very easy to read, and the story is very enticing.
8. The Hunger Games by Suzanne
Again, like Divergent, The Hunger Games writing is simple and easy to understand, great for first time readers.
7. Hate List by Jennifer Brown
Hate List throws in the struggles of high school and other experiences kids may face and gives very good life lessons while be altogether a great read.
6. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Throne of Glass is a great start up to fantasy books as the main character isn’t annoying and the books are overall very engaging.
5. Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter
Gallagher Girls is good for kids aged 9-12 as well. This was one of the first series I started reading, and it overall is a good fun read. There is something for all types of persons in this one. There is fighting (for the action enthusiasts) there is espionage (for the wannabe spies), there is dorm setting (for the dorm enthusiasts), there is mentions of style (for the girly-girls), there is mystery and suspense, and there are strong women.
4. Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobahn Vivian
Burn For Burn is full of teen problems and easy writing for a beginner.
3. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
See my review for why I think this is a great read.
2. City Of Bones by Cassandra Clare
In City of Bones there is humor, paranormal elements, and romance that a teen only dreams of.
1. Any book by Courtney Summers
Courtney Summers’ writing is so great for a teen’s mind. A lot of kids deal with the mental and physical issues featured in her books, I think it is a great way to broaden people’s horizons by reading her books. Click on any of the images of her books above to be lead to their individual Goodreads page. Want to see my review of her two books Cracked Up To Be and Some Girls Are, click HERE
