She's devouring books at the moment. Recently read and loved The girl in the window. Night speakers, The Extraordinary Colours of Auden Dare, Eliza Rose, Fire spell..
But she absolutely loved twighlight. Any more books along a similar theme or different books but for girls aged 11-13?

Thanks in advance

Hunger games? Divergent series?

Thanks, she's read lie tree. Hunger games on the way. Will look up other two

Vampire academy could be a go er?

There is some lightly mentioned sex, ( his chest) but not graphic

They do talk about an ecstatic feeling when they 'feed' but that is about it

Fallen by Lauren Kate? Not vampires but angels and good/evil etc. Set in a school.

Stephanie Meyer wrote another book called the host. It’s suprisingly good!

Maze runner series

My dd also consumed by Twilight. She's enjoyed some of the Sophie McKenzie and Frozen Charlotte series.

Ruby Redfort series is good. Some older fantasy/adapted fairy tales eg Beauty by Robin McKinley and The Tower Room by Adele Geras might intrigue her.

What exactly do you mean when you say "for girls?"

wobblebot Sun 03-Mar-19 18:23:06

Definitely the divergent series!!

@TwigTheWonderKid
Presumably she means someone born with a vulva?

Night School, by CJ Daugherty

Age of legends trilogy by Kelley Armstrong. There's quite a few Kelley Armstrong books aimed at young teens that are in a similar vein to the Twilight series.

The infernal devices, The doomspell trilogy, hush hush

Has she read the Alex rider series yet?

AlmostStace Sun 03-Mar-19 19:20:22

The Fablehaven series is excellent.

bethfreyaisaac Sun 03-Mar-19 19:24:17

House of Night series by PC and Kristen Cast. Loved it when I was around that age!

Stillabitemo Sun 03-Mar-19 19:41:14

Seconding recommendations for the house of night. Also the mortal instruments books

The wolves of mercy falls series by Maggie Steifvater was very twilight-esque . Quiet bookish girl falls for boy who transforms into a wolf, all very dreamy and romantic. There's some very non-explicit sex when he sleeps over though, only slightly more than in twilight

@ourkidmolly yeah, I know what a girl is (being one myself and all). Just wondered what OP meant re books "for girls".

My DD loved the Skullduggery Pleasant books at that age. They have a strong female protagonist but they certainly aren't "girly", if that's what you are after.

Garth Nix's trilogy is really good. Lirael etc

Oh excellent, so many brilliant recommendations of which I know none. Thank you so much everyone

Ps I mentioned books for girls because she won't read DS's recommended stuff...
