    Well, since you're a MAJOR bookworm, then theres a sight called

    worthyofpublishing.com

    that has hundreds of books that you can read, comment and rate on, and it's free.

    Most of them aren't published, but they are as the title says, 'worthy of publishing'.

    If you're looking to buy a book, then I would suggest

    The Hunger games trilogy by Suzanne Collins

    The Twilight saga by Stephenie Meyer

    Wings by Aprilynne Pike

    The looking glass wars by Frank Beddor

    Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte

    And the vampire's assistant is okay if you're good with reading huge books that aren't written well at all :)

    Sorry I couldn't list more :)

    Source(s): I've read them all and more

    I don't remember the authors of these books, but they are good ones, realistic fiction that's not overly complicated..

    Elsewhere

    Itch

    Beige

    Lost and Found

    the perks of being a wallflower is an absolute MUST READ. It's probably a little intense if you live a sheltered life, but it is a fantastic book.

    The Clique Series by Lisi Harrison

    I started those when I was 13.

    **EDIT**

    I'd like to add any books by Sarah Dessen would be a good choice. Her books are amazing. Um, Ally Carter is good as well and so is Elizabeth Scott. I loved Bloom and Perfect You by her.
