Books for a teenage girl?
Hi, I'm 14 and I love reading, but I can't seem to find an amazing book for a while. I like different types of books, including mostly romance (not paranormal romance, though, so no Twilight-ish books) and a lot of books surrounding, I guess you could call it "teen issues?" I don't know really. Here's a list of books I've read:
Identical by Ellen Hopkins
Heart on a Chain by Cindy Bennett
*Hold Still by Nina LaCour
*Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers
*Cracked Up to Be by Courtney Summers
*Fall For Anything by Courtney Summers
All Sarah Dessen books
Stay by Deb Caletti
Choker by Elizabeth Woods
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Bloom by Elizabeth Scott
*Love You, Hate You, Miss You by Elizabeth Scott
Something, Maybe by Elizabeth Scott
The books with stars by it are my favorites, and I want a book with a similar plot. I like some chick lit but only if they have a good story, like not too cheesy. And I like some gritty books but not too gritty. (Don't suggest anymore Ellen Hopkins books, please) Don't worry about the content, I'm very mature for my age.
Any suggestions are helpful, thanks!!!

Read books by Meg Cabot. I love the Princess Diaries series!! But it's NOTHING like the movie. It is so much better and isn't Disney content approved. (not that theres anything disgusting in it). you should read it, its really good(: some of my friends read Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars books, also. aside of chick books, i also like the blue is for nightmares series.
