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:

-Gallagher Girls

-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!

Thanks :)

    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.
