Good books to read for a 16 year old?
Well i'm 16, and i know this is really childish but my favourite books are Harry Potter! But who doesn't like Harry Potter?
Anyway stuff i have read is like:
-The Perks of being a wallflower
-Life of Pi
-And old books of my grans like treasure island and kidnapped.
I love fiction, (but not really sci-fi stuff). I would also like to try non-fiction, like a travel book that would suit my age or something to do with science because i love biology!

It's not childish. HP is my favorite series, and I'm seventeen. They're quality books. :)
Anyway, this is my personal summer reading list I'm about to share. There's not really any kind of order or theme going into it:
Catch-22, Joseph Heller
The Bell Jar, Sylvia Plath
A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgees
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams
Ender's Game series, Orson Scott Card (It's sci-fi but I've read the first book and a quarter of the second and it's amazing, you really should give it a chance)
I Am The Messenger and The Book Thief, both by Markus Zusak
To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee
Animal Farm, George Orwell (I recommend 1984 by him, which I read recently)
This Side of Paradise, F. Scott Fitzgerald (I recommend The Great Gatsby by him, which I read earlier this year)
Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte
Wuthering Heights, Emily Bronte
Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen
Books I've read before that I love (You'll probably like these if you like Perks of Being a Wallflower, because I love that book and love these): Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger, The Fault In Our Stars by John Green and The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton.
I hope I helped. :)

Maybe the James Potter series, they are free fan fiction carrying on from the end of Harry potter books although not quite the same or as good they have given me a bit of a hit on my Potter addiction

Haha I love Science Fiction so this is hard for me to answer! I'm assuming you don't like dystopia if you don't like science fiction (seeing as they're basically very similar). Um try reading looking for alaska or 13 reasons why, I think you'll like them

If you're willing to check out a crime thriller/dark comedy out, I recommend Darkly Dreaming Dexter.Source(s): I was sixteen when I started reading the Dexter novel series.
