Book Recommendations for Adolescents

My brother asked for some book recommendations. I’m racking my brains for books I liked. I'm a voracious reader but after a while they start to blend together. I started reading books for adolescents a couple of years ago when I wanted to know what Bri was reading. I've really enjoyed it. There are some great series out now for kids that I, too, wait for the next book to come out.

I'll start with these and try to remember more. Add any recommendation you have for me.

The Ranger Apprentice Series: Fabulous adventure series!

Underland Chronicles: Set under Central Park. It has a whole civilization with giant rats, spiders, bats and people. Bri, Jake and I loved it.

Wardstone Chronicles: Spooks defending people against witches, etc. Warning this one is dark and a little scary. Bri and I liked it, but the second book scared me.

The Shamer Series by Lene Kaaberbol. Fun books with a female protagonist.

Shadow Children Series: Anything by Margaret Haddix is good.

Uglies Trilogy:

Spiderwick Chronicles

Percy Jackson and the Olympians

Holes and Small Steps

Charlie Bone Series

Books I loved as a child:

Chronicles of Narnia

Tuck Everlasting

Witch of Blackbird Pond

Anne of Green Gables and the rest of L.M. Montgomery’s books

Where the Red Fern Grows
