I don't know any 10, but Shugo Chara is my all time fav shoujo manga. Very funny and personal with awesome, quirky characters. Amu's the best! I do plan to read Fruits Basket, Vampire Knight, and Ouran since it's unlikely for them to have more adaptations for reasons I don't know. Recently, a shoujo manwha called "Nice Guy Syndrome" caught my attention.

My top two favorites are Bokura ga Ita and Love So Life. I'm just starting to get into Taiyou no Ie (just ordered the 3rd volume) and am really enjoying that too.

There have been tons of shoujo I've read in the past, but ever since I started reading only in Japanese, the English ones are becoming a bit of a blur. I remember really enjoying Vampire Knight, but I never got to finish it! My library only had up to a certain number of volumes and I lost track of which one I was on.

I really don't know many Shojo mangas because I mostly read Seinen. But my guilty pleasure is Kimi ni Todoke and Fruit Basket.

And for anime, Ohshc.
Best girl ever, IMO.

Skip Beat
Cat Street (it's Short and Sweet)
Fushigi Yuugi: Genbu Kaaiden - though I would not touch the first one (FY) with a stick; don't worry you don't have to read FY to read this beauty. :)
I hear 7 seeds is really good; I've only gotten through the first few chapters which were intense- not your average shoujo, I wish it was licensed though, it's the type of thing you would want to buy, nurture and keep forever.
The Wallflower; if you hate Harem, then don't worry it is NOT HAREM, ergo I love it. It's more like a gag manga and not your average romance story.

Don't read much shoujo, not a massive fan of the genre.

Nodame Cantabile; which is Josei, I have only watched the animes though; it's amazing.

If you're into a dark tale then have a try at:
Puella Magi Madoka Magica (Yes it's a manga now)
Vampire Knight Eh... Dark romantic love triangle

If you like silly stuff then try:
Ouran High School Host Club Girl as a guy and then gets silly.
Kaichou wa Maid-Sama President as a maid + popular Heartbreaker= Lol

If your a highly obsessed Yaoi Fangirl then I recommend these two titles:
Junjou Romantica
Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi

If you're a magical girl lover then see these titles:
Sailor Moon In the name of the moon I shall punish you!
Shugo Chara Open heart unlock!
Cardcaptor Sakura Don't know this one.

And some random titles:
Demon Love Spell
Kimi Ni Todoke
Special A

I've read a few and enjoyed them.

So far:

Kaichou wa Maid-sama
Skip Beat!
Kimi ni Todoke
Watashi-ni xx Shinasai
Dengeki Daisy

I've liked them all for the most part. Good change of pace. Not sure what to try next and all of these top 10s make it hard to pick something.
