Good Books for Pree-Teen Girls

If you know me, you know that I love to read.  I’ve got plenty of suggestions for them and I’ll write a post about all of the books I love some time later if you’d like.  And here are some of the books that I love!

Lord Dolphin (Book)
At first, I thought that this book was just for young kids about 7 years old.  But I thought, “What could possibly go wrong?” and I read the book.  I was in a trance the entire time I read the book.  If I didn’t already have a book that is one of the best books ever, I’d say that this book is the most amazing book I’ve ever read.  The author really brings you into the book.  I was not reading the book.  I was living the book.  I think that that says it all.

Ballad of the White Horse (Ballad)
This book is amazing.  Amazing isn’t quite the word though.  If you don’t like ballads then don’t read this book.  But for those who do, this book will become your favorite.  I don’t understand most of it, but it’s so beautiful.  I wrote a review about it on Amazon, and I expressed what I thought of it there.  I really think that this is one of the most beautiful books ever written.

The Little House series (book series)
I have been reading the little house books since I can remember.  I have reread all of them at least 5 times.  Some people won’t like them but as you can guess, I think that they’re wonderful.  I won’t tell you what it’s about but I will tell you this: these books are great for children of all ages and all adults.

And that’s pretty much it!  If you want more book reviews, please post in the comments below.  Thanks for reading and have a great day! J


  1. I'm so glad you love to read! I didn't know you were living the book Lord Dolphin. Good writing!

  2. I love James Herriots "All creatures great and small". I have a feeling you might love his books too since they are about a country vet and based on real life. Who knows it might encourage you to be a country vet too! ha ha.

    1. My mom grew up near James Harriot (she just told me to say that a second ago as she read your comment)! I'll try the books out. They sound good! And who knows? It might change my mind and I'll become a vet! lol :)

    2. My daughter LOVES James Herriot, because he relates real life situations from his English country vet perspective. They read like good fiction, but are real stories!

      She also enjoys adventure/fantasy books, like "The Chronicles of Prydain" by Lloyd Alexander & "Acorna: The Unicorn Girl" by Anne McCaffrey. Kathryn Lasky wrote series "Guardians of Ga'hoole" & "Wolves of the Beyond" which she liked as light, easy reading, along with Gail Carson Levine's princess books. "Lord Dolphin" looks to be a fun little story...I'll read more later.

    3. I'll try out James Herriot when I can but I'm a bit busy right now.
      Thanks for the book suggestions! Do you know if they're on Amazon? I buy all of my kindle books on amazon.
