Hm...

 

Honestly I don't have much to offer, since I am a big fan of fanstasy. I would suggest going to Wattpad (website) for some casual reading.

The All-of-a-Kind Family books by Sydney Taylor are good! (Though they're a bit out of date.)

 

How about Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery?

The Trixie Belden mysteries by Julie Campbell and Kathryn Kenny (no murders, just mysteries).

 

Also try this booklist: http://www.rhml.lib.mo.us/rlunder13.htm

No fantasy? There are some lovely fantasy books for your age. If you want to try some fantasy :

Try The Enchanted Forest series by Patricia C Werde - Dealing with Dragons, Calling on Dragons, Searching for Dragons -(Can't think of the other title but they are fun books.)

 

Anne McCafferey Dragon Song, Dragon Singer and Dragon Drums also known as the Harper Hall trilogy.

 

Non - Fantasy books:

 

The Black Stallion series ( Some of the books are a little out there but most are good if I recall correctly.)

 

Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book.

 

Anne of Green Gables yes.

 

The little house books ( If you haven't read them all ready.)

The Secret Garden, and A Little Princess by Frances Hodgeson Burnett.

Haddix's series called 'The Missing' is a great series for Tweens, such as yourself an me (I'm under 13)

I'm on the fourth book, I'd probably be done with the series if my mom had took me to the library sooner then yesterday... sad.gif

 

Then there is The Prisoner of Cell 25 (Or something like that..) It's new series, and I think the second book comes in September...

 

Hatchet is a classic too...

 

Guardians Of Ga'hoole and The Wolves of Beyond are great too!

 

Dragon Slippers and it's sequels....

Fallen is a good book, but it's fiction.

And books from Jules Verne (uhh...fiction again) are awesome *.*

Was it on here, or another topic? I had made a thread for one series about angels and vamps. But I had also edited the post in this thread that originally had the book as a recommended here when I saw that the person was younger. It is not for a young audience. If you think that it is the post you saw and cant find, let me know.
