    There are so many it is not funny! I really like Garth Nix- the keys to the kingdom, Terry Brooks- if you like more adult fantasy, Isobelle Carmody- The Obernwtyn chronicles( if you don't mind reading in first person through a girls eyes), Brian Jacques- Redwall (heroes and villains in the form of woodland creatures), my friend likes James Patterson, you might like the Tomorrow when the war began series- sorry can't think of the author, Lord of the Rings, for a really thick book try the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever.

    I am a girl with adventure/fantasy book taste and my mom let me borrow a series called "Rose of the Prophet", the first one is called The Will of the Wanderer, the second one is called The Paladin of the Night, and the third one is called The Prophet of Akhran. Another GREAT series is the Magyk series by Angie Sage. Also have you tried the 39 clues?? Its by the same author as the Percy Jackson series, Rick Riordan.

    Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit are the most obvious books to read for fantasy. If you want to branch out into Sci-Fi you could try Vonnegut or Philip K. Dick. I remember reading Brian Jacques at that age.

    You might like some non-fiction books about wars and stuff. You should read "Killer Angels. All of the guys I know (I'm 14) have loved that book.

    If you're not too mature, try the Artemis Fowl books to get yourself started.
