I can easily suggest 5 good books for teen girls, seeing how I
was am one. (Yes, I guess when you’re eighteen you’re still stuck between being a teenager and an adult). Some of them are classics, others novels, but most of the books I read were for preparing me to be a Christian woman, a wife, and a mother.
It is pretty cool to see what books I read when I see these kind of posts. A wide variety, to be sure.
- Dear America (series)
I read a bunch of these books. The books make history relatable to teen girls, telling how an event in history makes them feel through the writing of a journal. I never ran across something questionable in this series. Each book I pick up in this series, I feel like I’ve gone back in time. What a wonderful feeling that is.
- Elsie Dinsmore (series)
Oh…Elsie! I adore these books. Truthfully, I’ve only listened to the books on audio, but each time I listened to the stories, I almost cried from what little Elsie had to go through. Each trial she went through, she did it with grace and the character of a saint, convicting me of my weak flesh. If you don’t what these books are, you should go and look!
- Stepping Heavenward
This is such a large book, but the wisdom that comes with it is just as massive. The book convicted me in so many ways: selfishness, pride, honor, only to name a few. (Those things I labeled, I struggle with and thus was easily convicted). A good book.
- Interrupted: A Life Beyond Words
This book was amazing! It’s that kind of book where you can read and reread it, without growing tired of the story. What I also think is wonderful, is that it was written by a homeschool teen, Rachel Coker. Her writing style and maturity is so impressive. The novel tells a tale of an adopted orphan who finds herself feeling unloved by her adoptive mother and dealing with the effects of World War II.
- Chasing Jupiter
Also written by Rachel Coker, this book is totally different from her first novel, but just as amazing. To be honest, I cried with this book. How can a 16-year-old keep together a family that is falling apart? Will things ever get better? All the teen girl finds joy in is peach pies and watching Neil Armstrong walk on the moon.
