message 1: by Ivy (new)

Ivy  I love the idea of this list


message 2: by Madelyn (new)

Madelyn I've read most of these-pretty good list!


message 3: by elissa (new)

elissa Yeah, there are some definite great books on here that aren't fantasy! Maybe there should be a separate list for regular fiction for this age level?


message 4: by elissa (new)

elissa I deleted a few that definitely weren't fantasy!


message 5: by elissa (new)

elissa Erica~You can start any list that you want to! Just click on "Create a list" (green link at the top of the page).


message 6: by Malia (new)

Malia I LOVE this list! the only problem is I've read them all... please add more to it! also Catherine called Birdy is a TERRIBLE book.


message 7: by elissa (new)

elissa Malia~What other books would YOU add to this list?


message 8: by Brit (new)

Brit yeah u should read these books


message 9: by coeli (new)

coeli great list!!!
ive read most of them!


message 10: by Faith (last edited Feb 28, 2010 02:01PM) (new)

Faith Me 2!
Mysterious Benedict society is a GREAT pre teen book, but doesn't really stress the "girl power" part.
Neither does twilight...


message 11: by Ruth (new)

Ruth Although I love Twilight, I can't vote it on this list because I don't think it's a book for pre-teens.

Also, Faith, I don't think this is a list of girl power books. I think it's a list of fantasy books that pre-teen girls would like.


message 12: by Baron (new)

Baron Greystone Well, I'd find a list of books with good, empowered female models for my pre-teen daughter to be the most useful.


message 13: by Ruth (new)

Ruth I agree. Try searching "female character" under the All Lists link at the top of this page.


message 14: by Travis (new)

Travis Outsiders definitely isn't pre-teen fantasy. That's the whole point of the book!


message 15: by Makaela (new)

Makaela Rodeback I have read most of theese books and want to read the others. Really great list.


message 16: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer Ok, what is with all of the Laura Ingalls Wilder pioneer books? They are not fantasy at all!


message 17: by Jessica (new)

Jessica Hmmm as much as I enjoyed Graceling I do not think it's appropriate for pre-teens. But it's a really good list, I would definitely recommend Shannon Hales books there AMAMZING!!!!


message 18: by Cindy (new)

Cindy Why is Jane Austen on here? Not exactly fantasy! And some of these are not really for pre-teens! Do you want me to remove them?

Debbie Ok. All the above have been deleted plus a number of adult Andre Nortons that ended up on the list. If any were deleted in error, please let me know.


message 21: by Abigail (new)

Abigail Take off Anne of Avonlea also. Good, but not a fantasy!


message 22: by Ezekiel (new)

Ezekiel Catching Fire is also dystopian/SF (not fantasy) and should probably be removed


message 23: by Suellen (last edited Oct 29, 2014 04:43AM) (new)

Suellen Drysdale Just added two new books to this list. Make sure you read The Hybrid and The Lost Tails of Mermirran first, it's had some great reviews. The sequel is The Hydbrid and the Emeralds of Elisar. Great if you like mermaids and horses, but a touch of real life adventure along for the ride.
