Whilst for some this might seem like a fairly controversial choice, the incredible popularity that the Twilight saga (both films and books) has had over the past decade meant that it had to feature somewhere on our list!
Protagonist Bella moves to a new city, where she falls in love with a gorgeous yet mysterious boy who turns out to be a vampire. Some critics have complained that the books show Bella to be a weak everywoman and Edward – the male lead – to be controlling and jealous. However, it is clear that the action-packed stories have enough romance and action to keep most young teens fairly interested.
The story is clearly written and simply explained, so it’s a great and easy-to-follow romp for anyone who wants some light reading matter.
