I thought I would make a list of all of my favorite books to share with you! (This list may be really long…) I’m going to organize it by age/reading level so you can skip to where you are at. :) This list is forever incomplete because I have read hundreds of books that I love, but I have forgotten about.
Early Middle School- 4th- 5th
The Tail of Emily Winsap (Liz Kessler and Sarah Gib) Series- This series was probably one of the first series that I really got into in middle school, it opened my eyes to books!
Allie Finkle’s Rules For Girls (Meg Cabot) Series- I still remember going up to my librarian and begging her to get the newest books in when they would come out. And she always put me first on the waiting list because I loved this series that much!
The Winnie Years (Lauren Miracle) Series- This series helped me understand growing up. It has everything you need to know about ~that time~ for girls, as well as new friendships, loosing friendships, and relationships.
The Mother Daughter Book Club (Heather Vogel Frederick) Series- I’m gonna be honest, I only read the first book in this series. I read this one in 6th grade and liked it, but I thought it was below my reading level (according to AR testing, I was at a 10th grade reading level in 6th grade) I’d recommend it to advanced 5th graders, or slow 6th graders. :)
Diary of a Wimpy Kid (Jeff Kinely) Series- Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m pretty sure that he is still writing more of these? I know that I read the first five or so (The last one I read was Cabin Fever). I enjoyed them, but quickly grew out of them.
Dork Diaries (Rachel Russell) Series- I think this one is still ongoing as well. I’m going to describe this as the girl version of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Its the same style journal entry type deal. My sister loves it and still reads them. (She doesn’t read much)
Middle School 5th- 7th Grade
My Life in Pink and Green (Lisa Greenwald) Series- OKAY, I did not know this was a series until I looked it up a few seconds ago! There is a second book! Any ways, I thought this book was really cute.
Percy Jackson (Rick Riordan) 2 Series- The whole series was great (I read it three times). I haven’t got around to reading the second series yet; however, some of my friends still read the books today and they love them.
Maximum Ride (James Patterson) Series- THIS SERIES WAS LIFE. I found out that they wrote a surprise 9th book, I bought it and its in my room waiting to be read right now. I. Love. This. Series. If you like this series, message me and we can fangirl together. I’m not kidding.
The Hunger Games (Suzzane Collins) Series- If you haven’t heard of this series, you are probably living under a rock BUT I thought I’d mention it anyway. Great series- it actually helped me find friends when I switched schools, the books were new and everyone was talking about them so I had something in common with everyone.
Matched (Allie Condie) Series- This was the first dystopian type book I read after Hunger Games, and I adored it. One of my best friends at the time read it with me and it was such a cute story.
Thirteen Reasons Why (Jay Asher)- Okay, before you go out and buy this book, ask your parents if you can read it (if you are younger than 13). It deals with some heavy subjects (I don’t want to spoil anything). I had to have special permission from my parents to let me read this book at school. However; I do think it is a great book and most of my classmates read it and loved it.
The Future of Us (Jay Asher)- Jay is a great author. One of my friends does not like to read AT ALL, but she read this book 3 times. It is honestly such a cute story about consequence and I loved it. It was so great.
Delirium (Lauren Oliver) Series- This series was one of my favorites from middle school. I thought it was so cute. I remember sitting on the side at summer camp so I could read this book. I was THAT kid.
The Selection (Kiera Cass) Series- I have only read the first two books, because I kinda forgot about this series TBH, but it was really good. The last two are on my “to-read” list and I look forward to finishing the series! *Tugs ear* -you’ll appreciate that later.
Early HighSchool (8th- 9th Grade)
Twilight (Stephanie Myers) Series- I actually read this in 6th grade because that was when it was new and just coming out and stuff, but I recommend waiting to read it because while I understood it, a lot of my friends tried to read it and didn’t quite understand it at the time. And the last book was a little intense for even my 6th grade brain >.<
The Host (Stephanie Myers)- This book was my favorite book in 8th grade. I loved the love story and how it was face paced.
Divergent (Veronica Roth) Series- I read this book before the hype and once it blew up, I knew exactly why. Dystopian love story. It was all the rage in 2013. Honestly, I loved it, but it’s not exactly different from every other dystopian story. It was good. (I have mixed feelings if you can’t tell)
John Green- Okay I know this isn’t actually a book. But I’m not gonna list each book haha. I have read all of his books, seen both of his movies (Well I’m seeing Paper Towns on July 31) and I loved every minute of it. I forced my friends to read them and see the movies- and now they love them. They are amazing. Also check out thisisnottom.com for an interesting book. Well kind of book.
Harry Potter (J. K. Rowling) Series- If you don’t know who Harry Potter is, get off my tumblr. JK (rowling)- but seriously, read them. Love them. Live them. HP 5EVER
High School (9th - 12th)
It’s Kind of A Funny Story (Ned Vizzini)- This book… I can’t even describe it. I loved it. I related to it. It was great.
Eleanor and Park (Rainbow Rowell)- SO CUTE. ASDFLLGSAJ THIS BOOK WAS SO CUTE
Me Earl and the Dying Girl (Jesse Andrews)- I read this book a little over a year ago, and I freaked when I saw the trailer in the movies. It was pretty good, not my favorite, but it was funny quirky and sad all at the same time.
Fangirl (Rainbow Rowell)- I’m currently reading this and I actually have to pace myself so I don’t read the whole book at once. (Like I set an alarm and every thing.) Its so good and I love it.
Message me about any of these books any questions you may have!
