Books that guys would like (12 titles)
I feel like most of the teen books are for girls and even though I am a girl I decided to contribute some books that I think guys might enjoy. (emphasizing "might" cuz obviously I can't be positive)
books I've read in school (29 titles)

(very very good) many of these I've read more than once or probably will, that's how good they are. The subjects vary widely but all the books are for teens. I'd probably mainly recommend them to teen girls but there are tons of books for guys as well.

Cover ArtPride and prejudice and zombies : the classic Regency romance-- now with ultravi
by Grahame-Smith, Seth.
This book has inspired me to read more Jane Austen because I enjoyed the story behind the zombie slaying and would definitely want to experience Austen without the gore. Don't get me wrong though. I loved this version and I thought it was very clever and well done. Read it!   posted Feb 15, 2010 at 10:09PM

Cover ArtShimmer
by Reed, Dallas, 1965-

This book is set in the future where kidnapping is an extremely popular industry. Charity doesn't think about it too much while living in her ultrasafe neighborhood where almost nothing bad happens until she, herself, is taken.   posted Apr 25, 2009 at 11:04AM

Cover ArtFreeze frame
by Ayarbe, Heidi
This is a pretty sad story about a kid who forgets a few crucial minutes of his life. These minutes are the ones in which his friend is shot. He remembers holding the gun, but did he shoot him? This book certainly kept me reading it.   posted Apr 25, 2009 at 11:02AM

In this book, the main character can summon the dead and gets sent to the Lyle House after she has a mental breakdown at school. In her new home for "troubled teens", she meets some other kids who possess strange powers just like her.

Cover ArtCity of bones
by Clare, Cassandra
I don't typically like major fantasy books but this one suprised me as to how good it was. There's pretty much everything you would want in a book all smushed into it!   posted Apr 15, 2009 at 5:43PM

Cover ArtA certain slant of light
by Whitcomb, Laura
This book was so good! It was a great love story but with a strange twist. The girl is dead. Just read it, even if you think this sounds weird; it's just too good to pass up!   posted Apr 15, 2009 at 5:38PM

Cover ArtThe last days : a novel
by Westerfeld, Scott
This is the sequel to "Peeps" and its even weirder! There are all new characters and they make a band, which is pretty cool. It's still set in a peep-filled world though.   posted Apr 10, 2009 at 5:51PM

Cover ArtMe, the missing, and the dead
by Valentine, Jenny
"Me, the missing, and the dead" is a bit of a strange book but its worthwhile. The main character finds an urn at a bus station and eventually finds out the person in the urn holds the truth as to where his dad has been for the past few years. Is he simply missing or is he dead?   posted Apr 5, 2009 at 4:46PM

Cover ArtThe curious incident of the dog in the night-time
by Haddon, Mark
I really liked this book. I like how deeply you get into the main character's head so you know exactly what crosses his mind about the decisions he makes.   posted Apr 5, 2009 at 4:43PM

Cover ArtFlowers for Algernon
by Keyes, Daniel
i hate this book. I did like "the curious incident of the dog in the night-time" though.   posted Apr 5, 2009 at 4:38PM

Cover ArtThe year of secret assignments
by Moriarty, Jaclyn

Cover ArtPeeps : a novel
by Westerfeld, Scott
I thought this book was pretty weird but it certainly kept me reading. There is this parasite that infects people, turning them into vampiric monsters aka "peeps". The book is the story of a guy, Cal who isn't a full blown peep but only a carrier of the parasite.   posted Apr 4, 2009 at 5:34PM

Cover ArtSwitch
by Snow, Carol, 1965-
This is about a girl, Claire, who, during every lightning storm, switches bodies with someone else similar to her. Typically, she wakes up herself again but this time she doesn't. Claire can't figure out how to switch back or if she even wants to...I read it in one day it's very suspenseful   posted Apr 4, 2009 at 5:31PM

Cover ArtLooking for Alaska
by Green, John, 1977-
In this book, a guy named Miles(aka Pudge) transfers to a private school in Alabama. There, he meets his best friend, the Colonel, and the girl who he loves but does not understand, Alaska. The first half of the book is adventurous and funny and I loved it. It gets sad but the book is definately a worthwhile read.   posted Apr 3, 2009 at 6:23PM

Cover ArtSuite Scarlett
by Johnson, Maureen, 1973-
"Suite Scarlett" is about the adventures of a girl whose family owns a hotel in New York City. The summer that Scarlett assumed would be boring turns out to be the time of her life as she helps her aspiring actor brother find success, becomes the assistant of a celebrity staying at the hotel, and meets a certain special someone. This book was easy to read and I couldn't put it down. It was incredibly entertaining.   posted Apr 3, 2009 at 6:16PM

Cover ArtSpeak
by Anderson, Laurie Halse
This book is about a girl who had one bad experience at a party, causing everyone to hate her. I can't give too much more away but you should really read it. It's pretty dark but funny in some places. I couldn't stop reading it... very good book   posted Mar 30, 2009 at 2:16PM

Cover ArtRebel angels
by Bray, Libba
This is the second book in the Gemma Doyle series and it was just as excellent as the first one.   posted Mar 27, 2009 at 4:11PM

Cover ArtThe sweet far thing
by Bray, Libba
This is my favorite book in the series. Gemma has to close the realms once and for all with several plot twists along the way and an ending that is surprising but feels right.   posted Mar 27, 2009 at 4:10PM

Cover ArtShadow kiss
by Mead, Richelle
This is definately my favorite book in the series. Rose has to choose between her best friend and her, well I guess I'll call him her boyfriend, Demitri. I really want to know what happens next.   posted Mar 27, 2009 at 4:09PM

This third book in the "Uglies" series was very cool but a lot darker than the others. It was still really good though.   posted Mar 27, 2009 at 4:06PM

Cover ArtExtras
by Westerfeld, Scott
I'd say this last installment to the series was my favorite. At first I didn't like the main character but as she grew throughout the story, I started loving her. It had just enough closure for the series.   posted Mar 27, 2009 at 4:04PM

Cover ArtPretties
by Westerfeld, Scott
This was a very good sequel to "Uglies" where Tally undergoes the 'pretty' operation and has to fight to not be sucked in to the pretty lifestyle. The ending was sad but it made me really want to read another sequel!   posted Mar 27, 2009 at 4:03PM

Cover ArtTrouble's daughter : the story of Susanna Hutchinson, Indian captive
by Kirkpatrick, Katherine
In this book, a girl living during the early colonization of America gets kidnapped by Indians after her entire family was massacred. This sounds kind of gruesome but by the middle of the story, Susanna had developed a very strong bond with her new family which I thought made the book incredibly good.   posted Mar 27, 2009 at 3:59PM

Cover ArtIncantation
by Hoffman, Alice.
This book covers persecution, love, betrayal, and tragedy. It was very sad but worth reading. It is a love story after all.   posted Mar 27, 2009 at 3:56PM

Cover ArtMarley & me : life and love with the world's worst dog

Cover ArtA northern light

This is a very powerful "should I follow my dream?" sort of story and I enjoyed it. There is a mystery intertwined within the book which makes it interesting also.   posted Mar 27, 2009 at 3:46PM

Cover ArtHush : an Irish princess' tale
by Napoli, Donna Jo, 1948-
An Irish princess gets kidnapped by the "Northmen" or the Norse. It's about her journey to an unknown place without knowing if she will ever get home. I really enjoyed this book, ...even the ending though some may disagree...   posted Mar 27, 2009 at 3:44PM

Cover ArtThe Christopher killer : a forensic mystery

Cover ArtEvermore
by Noel, Alyson

Cover ArtBehind you
by Woodson, Jacqueline

Think "I see dead people" in written form but with a different twist.   posted Mar 27, 2009 at 3:31PM

Cover ArtLife as we knew it
by Pfeffer, Susan Beth, 1948-
This book is basically about the end of the world but that's not all... It portrays the strength of the characters to stick together during the worst of times which I thought was the strongest aspect of the story...very good book   posted Mar 27, 2009 at 3:29PM

Cover ArtThe body of Christopher Creed
