Memoirs of a Geisha

Snow Falling on Cedars

Fair Blows The Wind (not really a teen book per say, but a good read still)

Out of curiosity, and I'm really not criticizing, I'm wondering why you think these are teen books?

Great thread (but I have to agree with deadpandito that I'd like to hear the reason for some of the books being listed as teen books).

Here's a heads up that I've (just moments ago) created a new thread specifically for recommendations, like we have in other forums. Please use that for new recommendation requests going forward.

Not to get out of answering, but what constitutes as a "teen" book? Is it that a book has a teenaged protagonist?
I put these books down, because they are for young adults. I also happened to read them when I was in high school and thought people in that age range might enjoy them as well.

What is a teen book? In my mind, a teen book is the same thing as a Young Adult novel. So, if you find it shelved in the YA section of your book store, it's definitely a teen book. But that isn't a helpful definition.

How do publishers decide that? Well, it's a bit of a marketing term. Yes, I think the protagonist must be a teen; I can't think of one where this didn't happen. The themes general revolve around teen problems, and it is often a coming of age story. After that, all bets are off. YA spans many genres and can be both dark and light-hearted.

It was pretty good, especially since my favorite GG characters are the ones that showed up there.

If you like Ally Carter's books, you should read the Finishing School series I mentioned there. It's like Gallagher Girls, but Victorian steampunk-y stuff with werewolves.

Since when is 'teen' a genre?

Anyway I guess the thrawn trilogy of starwars is pretty good. Who knows, it might be episode VII, VIII, and IX in a couple of years. (thats why I'm reading it anyway)

It "officially" became a genre because of Harry Potter. The NY Time Best Sellers list got tired of the books dominating the list, so they started splitting the list into different genres. That way they could keep the original list "pure".
