Recommend some books for a teen girl?

*I've asked this before, but I want more answers :)

I'm 15, btw.

Some of my favourite books are:

•The entire Harry Potter series (of course :'D)

•The Kiterunner-Khaled Hosseini

•A Thousand Splendind Suns-^same author

•And The Mountains Echoed-^same author

•The Host- Stephenie Meyer (It's 100x better than Twilight, I promise!)

•The Fault in Our Stars- John Green

•Gone With the Wind-Margaret Mitchell

•A Little Princess- Frances Hodgson Burnett (Probably meant for younger readers, but I LOVED it when I was 11-12, and I still love it)

I'm currently reading "The Perks of Being a Wallflower", and I think I'll like it :)

(I'm also thinking about trying "I Capture the Castle" and "The Catcher in the Rye")

Some other popular/famous books I've read are: Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, Little Women (the whole series), Lolita, The Hunger Games (whole series), Twilight (whole series. Didn't like it, btw), Wuthering Heights, War Horse, The Davinci Code(and some other Dan Brown books), The Diary of Anne Frank, The Last Song, The Notebook.

I also tried a handful of Meg Cabot books, and I didn't dislike them, but they're not really...my "type" :)

Any suggestions? It can be anything from classics to teen romance books to adult books, as long as it's GOOD. :D

I don't mind if it has some inappropriate parts, as long as the book isn't completely about sex or anything like that :|

    The spook's books are really good! by Joseph Delaney

    there are more than 10 books in this series

    Here is a summary of the first one The Spooks Apprentice:

    For years, the local Spook has been keeping the County safe from evil. Now his time is coming to an end, but who will take over?

    Many apprentices have tried... Some floundered, some fled, some failed to stay alive. Just one boy is left. Thomas Ward. He is the last hope.

    But does he stand a chance against Mother Malkin, the most dangerous witch in the County?

    And the site of the author :

    I only have one suggestion for you to read and that is Gardens and the Warrior of Heaven by Jamon Miller. It's appropriate, well written, and has a great story. If you like The Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Twilight, and so on, then you will really like this on. There are sample pages on amazon, if you want to check those out. It's a great book, and worth a read.

    Colleen Hoover's Slammed series is really good. Also, I liked One Pink Line by Dina Silver. Oh and Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier that I read in class was pretty good. Hope that helps. Good luck and happy reading:)
