Hi, Olive here! I’m going to be recommending some awesome teen books today. A lot of these novels are dystopian or adventure, as that’s my favorite genre to read, but even if you’re more of a fan of romance, I’m sure you’ll still find something you like.
1. The Hunger Games series.
This series by Susanne Collins consists of three books and each is as exciting as the one before. I’d say this is a book more for older teens, but I love it all the same.
2. The Maze Runner series.
If you’re a fan of The Hunger Games, you’ll definitely enjoy this series by James Dashner. They’re both dystopian/adventure series and will always keep you turning the page. This series consists of three books and two prequels.
Skellig, by David Almond, is quite a sad story. It’s about a boy who finds a fallen angel in his shed and he has to try and help him.
4. The School for Good and Evil series.
This series, by Soman Chainani, has five books out so far, with a sixth and final one to be released in June. It’s a fantasy series and I’d recommend it for ages eight and up.
5. The Harry Potter series.
OK, if you haven’t read the Harry Potter series in 2020, then what exactly are you doing with your life? And don’t use the “I’ve seen the movies” excuse. Harry Potter is a fantasy series by J.K. Rowling, and it is basically for all ages. Go read it now!
This book is by one of my favorite authors, Michael Morpurgo. It’s set during the war and tells the story of a boy who rescues an orphaned lion cub.
This book is a romance novel by Jenny Han. There are three books all together, but I’ve only read the first so I can’t tell you if the entire series is good. I really enjoyed the first one, though.
8. The Percy Jackson series.
This series by Rick Riordan has six books, but there are a ton of other series connected. It’s an action/teen fiction featuring… the Greek gods!
Another romance, this one by John Green, but it’s really sad. I haven’t read this one but Rosie and Sky tell me it’s amazing.
10. An Eagle in the Snow.
Another novel by Michael Morpurgo. I read this one a while back in a book club, and out of all the books I read there this is the one that stuck with me the most. It takes place during a war and from what I remember is pretty sad.
So there you have it! Some great teen books to keep you entertained. Hope you find at least one book that you like out of these. Do you want to check out more ideas on what to do this quarantine? Check out our music playlist and some recipes too!
