Hello everyone! Ondrej was kind enough to ask me to do a guest post for you, and I thought it would be a wonderful idea. He suggested I do something involving books for teenage girls, seeing as I have been one and he certainly hasn’t, and so I have chosen my Top 5 Good Book Series for Teenage Girls. I hope everyone likes it, and I definitely want to hear your choices as well!
1. Twilight Saga by S. Meyer
Although I did not find myself caught up in the whole Edward vs Jacob fantasy world, there is no mistaking how rapidly it took effect on the majority of teenage girls when the books, and then movies, came out. Stephanie Meyer created a world where vampires and werewolves were not just legends which people used to scare each other around the campfire. In her world, vampires could survive off of just animal blood and would not harm humans, making relationships possible.
Werewolves did not spontaneously change during the full moons, and they could control when they needed to be in each form, keeping their rage in check during the process. Making them hunky guys didn’t hurt the plot either and I bet most girls have at one point thought that their life would be way better if they could have a hot vampire and werewolf fighting for their affections like Bella. Don’t try to deny it ladies.
2. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
by A. Brashares
For the girls who are super close to their friends (you know… the ones who can’t go to the bathroom alone), you should definitely pick up this series. It’s all about the bonds of friendship, and how this one pair of jeans could magically fit four different girls with different body types.
They send the pants between each other during their trips and vacations where they are apart, keeping their friendship strong. The movies that were made were pretty cute as well. I would definitely recommend them for a girls’ night movie marathon.
3. The Mortal Instruments Series by C. Clare
This has got to be one of my favorite series in the whole world, and I have read quite a few books in my time. It takes a young girl named Clary from her normal life in Manhattan and throws her into a fantasy world, where invisible people called Shadowhunters seek out demons and kill them before they can do any harm to the mundane (regular people).
You will find everything from vampires to warlocks in this series, as well as a super hot guy named Jace who clearly steals Clary’s heart with his sarcastic, witty personality, and before you know it you will be sucked into the fight against Valentine as he tries to take control of the Shadowhunters. For anyone who is interested in this series, Cassandra Clare has just written the fourth book, and the next one will be released in 2012.
4. Princess Diaries Series by M. Cabot
Every girl dreams she is a princess when she is little. It’s part of growing up for a girl. You fantasize about living in a castle and having some prince come on a white horse to marry you, and then you find the man of your dreams when you grow up and secretly picture him on that same horse.
Don’t deny it, you know you do it. This series is for all of us girls who have ever wished to become a princess, even if you are still doing it now. The books take you throughout Mia’s journey of becoming a princess after discovering she was more than just an ordinary, unimportant, teenage girl. They are a wonderful way to experience your fantasy as a teenage girl, and the movies staring Anne Hathaway are a great treat for any chick flick night.
5. If I Stay & Where She Went by G. Forman
These two books will have any young lady bawling her eyes out, but they are definitely worth it. The main character Mia and her family have been in a car accident, and now she is having an out-of-body experience. She watches as her grandparents and boyfriend visit her in the hospital, thinking back on times she has had with them, and trying to decide whether or not she should live or just let herself die. It’s completely heart wrenching, and leaves you wondering what you would do if you were in the same situation, and that’s part of why these books are so good.
