What are some really good teen books?

What are some really good teen books? First I HATE the Vampire Diaries books and the TV series.

I've already read:

Sookie Stackhouse series

Twilight >_<

The MorganVille Vampires

Vampire Kisses series

The Wolves of Mercy Falls(Shiver)

Maximum Ride

the books by Kelly Armstrong

Tantalize and Blessed by Cynthia Leitich Smith

Intertwined and it's sequal - Gena Showalter

Some of my favorites:

The Mortal Instruments

The Infernal Devices

The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod

Nevermore by Kelly Creagh

The Den of Shadows Quartet - Amelia Atwater Rhodes


So I want something different. Manga's are okay. I've looked around bn.com and I have no interest in the books there or I've already read them. Help?


Didn't like the House of Night books and I've read Kissed by an angel.

    You seem to be into dark romance books... look up the author Elizabeth Chandler. her books are amazing! there's dark secrets 1, dark secrets 2, the kissed by an angel series, and the back door at midnight. Each story is unique and a quick read. They're so, so, SO good. Also, i really enjoy the author Sarah Dessen. Her books are inspiring with a hint of romance. Check them out(:

    Since you assert you simply completed "Pride and Prejudice" and adored it, I expect you are a really intellectually mature youngster.

As a youngster I loved George Eliot ( Mary Ann Evans). Her "Silas Marner" used to be an excessively touching tale. If you prefer individual experiences, you are not able to pass flawed with Charles Dickens. As a youngster I learn Kenneth Roberts for his historic novels which regularly gave the impression to comprise a romantic aspect. Two of his first-class recognized had been "Arundel" and "Northwest Passage." The latter used to be made into successful film "Northwest Passage" starring Spencer Tracy, Robert Young, and Walter Brennan. If you prefer delicate humor and social statement, learn Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens). For a seem at colonial lifestyles take a look at James Fenimore Cooper's romantic novel "The Last of the Mohicans. Use the web and your English instructor at university for ideas. Follow your pursuits and your interest to consultant your studying -- they'll difference as you mature and they'll speed up your maturation. Your pursuits and interest might take you past the fantasies of fiction and into the truly international of historical past, technological know-how, and philosophy. That's to not denigrate fiction -- a lot of it has delicate and no longer-so-delicate messages brought in a technique similar to to represent a finding out enjoy for the reader
