Top Ten Best Book Series
I love Harry Potter, it's really nostalgic. It also surprises me that the movie adaptations were actually pretty good. Harry Potter is real special in the fact that both the books and movies are good. However, now that I'm older, I don't necessarily agree with it being #1. I've since then found other book series that outclass Harry Potter in almost every aspect such as world building, intricate writing, and action. I recommend other fantasy series such as A Song Of Fire And Ice and Wheel Of Time. I'd like to emphasize that Wheel Of Time is CRIMINALLY UNDERRATED, Robert Jordan really outdid himself. Anyways, I liked Harry Potter, I liked it enough to vote for it. But in my opinion, I believe Harry Potter doesn't stack up to other book series I previously mentioned.
I love reading, and so therefore I have read many, many books of diverse genres. Harry Potter beats all. Amazing character development, plot line, and structure. It is also very relatable. J.K Rowling combines fantasy, magic, and war with the school life and growing up of Harry Potter and his fellow students. The depth of personality is awesome, as well.
Respecting other people's opinion is always good, of course, but honestly, the fact that Diary of A Wimpy Kid is on this list is a disgrace. My thoughts are that it follows a selfish, greedy and brattish character. No plot, no depth, just a kid complaining about life. It offers no morals whatsoever. Of course, this is only my opinion on Diary of A Wimpy Kid. Oh, and this is coming from a reader under sixteen.
And if your interested about my second and third favorite? Wings of Fire and Warriors! I really recommend them. Eragon series is good, as well.
I hope to be a writer, and I am already working on some books. I have been ...more
Harry Potter is a literary genius. Every detail becomes crucial to the plot later on, everything ties itself together so well. J.K. Rowling was so creative when she wrote it- the structure, the logic, the terms... it's so realistic and relatable, even though it's about wizards and witches. If you haven't read this what is wrong with your life.
Harry Potter is indeed the bets book series of all time. The character development, the story in general, the plot twists, everything just works. I have to give credit to the people who made the Harry Potter movie series because for the most part they followed the books and it was really good. Love this series, will always be my #1, and I'm sure many people would agree with me.
Uncle Rick blended in the perfect elements in this series and it was incredibly good. Now, I'm not saying Harry Potter is trash but I don't like Harry's personality altogether nor the slight blandness. However, Percy is an incredible main character. He's relatable, funny, selfless, and courageous. The other characters are incredible, too.The plot twists were great, the comedy was great, and the action was great as well. All in all, I believe it deserves the number 1 spot.
THIS SERIES IS SO AMAZING I CAN'T STOP READING THE FUNNY PARTS! Okay. Here are my top reasons this is the best series ever:
1. Humor- From Percy's sarcasm, to Zoe's accidental dam-jokes, this book really cracked me up!
2. Adventure- Seriously, if you don't think a boy who's half human and half God, battling monsters and going on quests is exciting, you have a serious problem. This book as awesome battles with monsters, and exciting quests!
3. Surprise endings- It was AWESOME when Thalia came back to life from being a pine tree, and TOTALLY shocking when Luke killed himself as Kronos. It's awesome to have these curveballs, which really surprise you at the end!
4. Mystery- For the first few chapters, you're kinda like 'Who's Percy's father?" or maybe you're like "Who poisoned the tree?" This combined with the surprise endings, such as when he found out that Ares gave him the lightning bolt, makes the story really interesting!
5. You can't stop reading it- Seriously, ...more
No need to say anything. This should be Number 1. Harry Potter is good... for its era. Now I doesn't stick with me as well as it did earlier. This is why Percy Jackson is my favourite, it ages excellently. No matter how many times you read it it is always mind blowing. Even after over 15 years it ages just fine.
A great series but kind of overrated. Sometimes this series focuses too much on action scenes that in the end don't add up to anything anyways, compared to Harry Potter which is more balanced between action and calmness. But the character development is great, and the first and fourth books are especially lit!
I really love this series! Oh my gosh! I love how Suzanne Collins writes. It is a great story line. I mean where does she come up with this stuff? I mean it has all my favorite genres of books like action, romance and it is all around great with all the intense stuff. I love how much detail is in the book. It is basically my favorite series to read. It is so interesting. Love all the characters in the book too. The only thing I don't really like about the book is that pretty much all of the amazing characters die! (and that romance with Gale and Peeta both liking Katniss). But overall, it was the best series I've ever read! Great job, Suzanne Collins! I rate this 10/10!
This book is amazing! Why isn't it higher?! It should be, like, number two, after Harry Potter, because that is a really good series too, but this is just as good.
The Hunger Games is about fighting to the death, action, survival, romance (well who cares about KISSY KISSY) and some pretty amazing gore! And it's intense! I mean, I couldn't put it down. Literally. It was math and I was secretly reading it. But the the teacher found out.
It really hit the fan then. But that's the whole point! It was that good. That I was risking reading this in class. 10/10. Bravo!
I really recommend this book to people that like reading intense books.
The hunger games to me is the best book series I have ever read. It has a very nice love triangle and I love how the author is so creative. You can already tell it is a good series because there are three books and there are four movies as to maze runner and the 5th wave there is only 1 movie even though there are more than one book. I have read the hunger games more than I can count and I still love it. The movies are bomb and the casting was so perfect! I cannot imagine life without the hunger games! I rate this a 10 out of 10. It is definitely a must read. Great job Suzanne Collins! You are the best!
Best book series ever! Romance, action, excitement, and more is packed into all three books of The Hunger Games. Whether I'm reading about Cinna, or how Katniss doesn't know who to love, Gale or Peeta, (personally I'm rooting for Peeta), I can never stop. At first I never knew about the wonderful Hunger Games books, I was only in love with Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and The Heroes of Olympus, but then my best friend introduced me to the series.And man oh man am I glad she did. That night I begged my mom for her to buy me the series, but instead she reserved the first book at a local library. Unfortunately for me I wouldn't be able to get them soon. So I kept begging and begging her, and eventually she took me to a different library, and there I finally got the book. Immediately I fell in love with The Hunger Games and finished the first book in about a week. I told my mom if I could get the second book, but when we visited the library it was closed. So instead I listened to an ...more
This book series is so good that Tolkein is getting his own movie. JK Rowling ain't getting that. The amount of emotional immersion and artistry this series has blows my mind. The words themselves crack open your imagination to its wildest and most vivid extent. The amount of emotional depth the characters have is mind-boggling, and I cried at the end. I cried over a book. And let us not forget the true defining feature of this series: its world. It creates a vast and powerful world full of awesomeness. I think if I put the effort into it, I could be a pretty good writer, but as good as this? Hell no! I think a part of Potter's popularity over this is that it is more recent a book, so more people have read it. But Potter, and fantasy novels as a whole, would possibly not exist without this.
First off, LOTR is one book divided into three parts, not really a book series, but whatever. This book is amazing. It has its own language, its own Gods, and Middle-Earth becomes so immense and realistic. Once you read this book, you'll think, wow, this is epic, but then realize that the main villain is a servant of the main villain in the Silmarillion, Morgoth, the second most powerful being in all of Arda, unless Tom Bombadil was taken into account. The whole world was built and perfected before the books were written. It was so good that even the movies were amazing. His other books do read like encyclopedias, though, besides The Hobbit, which was also amazing but directed more towards younger audiences.
All that is gold does not glitter
Not all those who wander are lost

A light from the shadows shall spring

Expansive and accurate universe, amazing story line, and excellent writing. What more could you ask for? I'm honestly alright with Harry Potter and The Hunger Games in the top five, but Diary of a Wimpy Kid?! Percy Jackson and the Olympians?! I mean, I agree, they are quite humorous, but you've got to look at the writing style. Tolkien is serious and concentrated in his art, but Riordan and Kinney? Far too casual for my liking. And for heaven's sake, must I still point this out to everyone? Tolkien CREATED a whole WORLD with his books. Ents? Orcs? Hobbits? ALL Tolkien. Plus the characters are so well-written, especially Gollum/Smeagol. Greg Heffley, from my point of view, is just a whiny little boy with no idea of how the world works nor any initiative to find that out. Percy Jackson, I must say, is a great character, but the series should belong somewhere from 6th to 10th. Wimpy Kid should just huddle down in 40th. The Lord of the Rings in my opinion, is THE greatest set of books ...more
So much deeper than the books ahead of it. Harry Potter and Hunger Games may be popular among most people, but I can PROMISE you that if 100 literature proffessors from top universities voted to compile this list, we'd be seeing a very different one. Lord of the Rings would be top 3 along with the Chronicles of Narnia. Tolkien is so incredible, but these kids get on and just vote for Harry Potter and Hunger Games because they thought the movies were cool.
I started reading Diary Of A Wimpy Kid at a young, age, and am still hooked! It's funny beyond any level, and even though the writing is simple, it's great! I can understand it, and the pictures are funny as well. I like how Greg is just that guy sitting in a dark room playing video games, but even he has a life. Great book, I totally recommend it if you're looking for a funny, relatable book! Also the part about DnD is actually a reference. Please read!
Most people say that these books are for kids that don't like to read. I think these books actually are so well written and are very VERY relatable. I don't think a lot of people understand how hard it is to make a book, that will literally make you laugh out loud. Jeff Kinney takes the smallest things that we can all relate to, and makes them big and hilarious. This is such a well made piece of comedy that uses first person to its advantage. The characters are static. Every character in Diary of A Wimpy Kid is someone from your life. These books are genuine masterpieces! They capture so many things about ordinary life and make them captivating, and funny! I wish people would stop dissing this series because the words are really spaced out, and just appreciate that its doing its job. This book does exactly what it intended, and in my book that's a sign of the best book series of all time.
I love Diary of a Wimpy kid so so much! It's my favourite book series ever and while it's probably not the best book to read as it's not really very wordy I enjoy it and that's all that should matter. I've been reading them since I was 8 years old and I'm now 15 still loving them. Greg is a very relatable character and he's great. The best book is Rodrick Rules.
I understand that everyone has their own perspective on everything, but these series are one of the best books yet to come! I disagree with some of you who don't like the series; just because you don't like it doesn't mean it's a bad series, it just means that your perspective of the series is different! I would say that this series of books are the most awesome, appropriate and understandable for all ages! I think what the author wanted us to know is that not all books have to be hard and complicated to read. These books are supposed to be nice and easy! I just love how the author curates the books by making it look like a real diary!
(These series are totally for lazy days)
I'm genuinely shocked and surprised (in a good way) on how the Warriors series is this good. It is such a wacky and weird premise if you think about it. Wild cats who have borders and a very questionable code? Yeah right. But when I read that first book , Into The Wild, my perception on the series was forever changed. What I have noticed in this series is that they excel at one specific thing, character arcs. This series has done well in multiple areas (such as the dialogue, story, plot, world-building, etc.), but development of the characters is what really sticks out to me. Starting with Firestar's arc, and it's likely the best in the series. Firestar's personality in the first book is already established, curious, kind, strong-willed, patient, and open-minded. We see him go through many difficult times such as his battles with Tigerstar, the discrimination he faced for being a kittypet, his quarrels with Sandstorm, and the death of many of his clanmates. Yet, Firestar seems to get ...more
I see all the Warrior Cats fans out here propelling this series to #6. And yes I do agree Warrior Cats is actually a great series. And it should be over Diary Of A Wimpy Kid, that series is overrated. So what can I say? For a kids book, it digs deep. It's got everything, comedy, romance (a lot), forbidden love (lots of it), action, adventure, drama, and thrills. The main reason this series is so good is the long running arcs and development of characters. I also think the plot, storylines, and dialogue are great. All of it is really well thought out. This series also does tackle some serious topics such as racism, war, and death. There's also a lot of great underlying messages in this long-running series such as acceptance, faith, loyalty, and friendship. Although I am not sure about a movie, I'm not sure many people will come to see that and it would be very mature. I would find it hard to make a movie for this kid friendly. Also I have seen the cast list and I'm not liking it at ...more
I absolutely LOVE the Warrior series. Even though at times it can be racist, brutal, and sometimes political, I still adore the series. I love Harry Potter, don't get me wrong, but in my opinion, Warriors is #1. The series makes you want to keep reading because there is a secret that can be uncovered at any moment (basically it keeps the suspense really well and the emotion is very high). This can be compared to the works of authors like Edgar Allan Poe. It is also very different, it has a cats' perspective, which is interesting. It sort of helps people know what it's like to be a wild cat. This series also teaches very important life lessons such as loyalty, respect, responsibility, trust, and care for the weak. This series also goes in depth when it discusses serious problems such as ambition, false judgement, racism, war, being in a relationship, and breaking the law. Most of all, the characters, plot, emotion, and setting stick out to me. Erin Hunter describes the setting and the ...more
These series of books have inspired me to reach out to new friends who would like the same things as me. I showed them the way and they started taking interest in these books. Into The Wild changed my whole entire life. I learn good writing tips and words I could've used in my own story, the suspense leaves me desperate enough to read more, and without even acknowledging that these existed at all, I would've died of complete boredom. I'm really not surprised Warriors is actually Top Tens! I recommend this to all the children, adults, elders, seniors, teens, babies even, to read Warriors! At the beginning I really hated cats, but after seeing the life wild cats live in, I adore them!
Should probably deserve a top 5 spot, although I'm not one to bash personal opinions. I just think that Martin built one of the best, most complete series to date. Not as in the books are finished, but that there are not very many loose ends to track down and are left hanging. The world is intricate, realistic, and very complex, as are almost all of the characters. But there are two things I think Martin simply excels at and outpaces everyone else. The first is not dumping the entire story on one character or set of interwoven characters. Without such a limited worldview, we are still able to realize the story is focused on Westeros without the main characters being intimately involved in every major event. The second thing Martin is very good at is keeping items on the periphery, as in not essential to the story, still in the worldview. The continent of Westeros is not terribly big, and while every event seems major, in the grand scheme of the world most of them are not. Keeping that ...more
Undoubtedly the best book series of all time. Should be on top of the list! So many details and foreshadowing. GRRM is a genius, hope he finishes the rest of the books soon. Can't wait for Winds of Winter to come out next year. The show was great up until they had the material from the books. They completely butchered the show this season. The books will have the real ending and still there are prequels coming our way. Really want to know more about Robert's Rebellion and how the Targaryens came in power. Love the unpredictability and the character development of the series which you don't get to see in many books.
This is one of the if not the greatest medieval fantasy book series of all time. It is so perfectly crafted including fantastic beings such as White Walkers (aka Others), Dragons, and Children of the Forest, as well as political intrigue and backstabbing. Varys and Littlefinger are one of the most enigmatic characters I have ever seen with Tyrion not far behind. The world is understanding and town or region names are named after things that we are familiar with such as Rivers or Storms. The cities are all excellent and disparate. The characters grow up so much that you start liking characters that you hate, and hate characters that you loved. I also love the mystery behind GRRM's lore such as the mystery of the Long Night and whats beyond Essos and Sothoryos. I say that almost everything contained within these five book is grandeur and in no other word epic.
What makes this series better than every other one is the realism. Nine great houses vying for power on a militarily charged continent. Like every other fantasy series, the magic can't be left out, but this is a blend of fantasy and historical fiction. It focuses far more on the reality of the power struggle than the magic. Another bonus is the never ending streaming of storylines. In Harry Potter or Hunger Games, if the central characters die, everything falls apart. In ASoIaF, there is no central character. There are three at a minimum (Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen). And no character is purely good or purely evil. Cersei Lannister can be shown as evil, but all she is doing is protecting and bettering her children. Eddard Stark can be purely good, except that he fathered a bastard. And probably the best part is the history. If you ever read a history of this series, this is just one war amongst hundreds. There are probably even greater wars he could have chosen, ...more
How the hell is this below that stupid wimpy kid. That series is trash. This is absolutely amazing, what is wrong with you people? The fact that diary of the wimpy kid is on this list itself is a disgrace.
I may be the only one who likes this more than the Percy Jackson and the Olympians, but I don't care. This series is absolutely incredible. From the incredible cast of new characters, to the amazing battles, to the greatest cliffhanger in the HISTORY of literature, this is by far the greatest book series of all time.
Percy taught me ordinary people can be true heroes.
Annabeth taught me that we are the architects of our own dreams.
Jason taught me that the best people are the ones that stand by you, no matter what.
Piper taught me that beauty comes from within and that hardship makes you a fighter.
Frank taught me that you can be anything if you never give up.
Hazel taught me that suffering makes a hero and that the best people are the ones who have gone threw the worst.
Leo taught me that fake smiles are the most beautiful and that the ones who cry but don't show it are the bravest.
Nico taught me that pain and suffering make a man and that everyone can find light in darkness.
Reyna taught me that you can find strength in pain.
Coach Hedge taught me that people do care.
Even though each book was 50+ chapters (the forth was seventy seven) the took me a week while the rest only took me THREE DAYS! I just love it so much I couldn't put it down. A must for Percy Jackson fans. I love how it used shifting views unlike Percy Jackson so by the end of the books, they used nine character's views in total which made each chapter so interesting. It was also diverse but not in your face look how politically correct I am. And the ending, well I won't spoil it but I was so happysad when I finished it.
This may not be the best book series in my opinion but it is so much better then ALL the stuff that is above. Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, and Warriors are all overrated. Has anyone read the Kane Chronicles? Anyone?
Love it so much. Love the movies too. I totally believe in Narnia. I've actually written a letter to the actresses who plays Lucy, Georgie Henley! Yeah that's how much I LOVE it... I hope you do too.
I love this book series, I fell in love with the characters and it gives you a different perspective on Jesus. But the movies are better.
This is such a beautiful series with so many wonderful lessons and deep quotes. It should definitely be higher on the list!
This must be above the wimpy kid. It is absolutely amazing, and wimpy kid is kinda stupid.
Why is this on here? This should be tied in with Lord of the Rings if it's going to be on here at all
This is definitely not a series, but it is continued by LOTR. Anyways, The Hobbit was awesome.
In the hole In the ground, there lived a hobbit.
I loved Hunger Games (a little too much actually), and I was excited when I saw this on the shelf because dystopias are my favorite, but I actually found it super boring. Characters are bland, story's too complicated, not enough action and plot twists. Plus, they tried to make Teresa this great heroine or whatever, but honestly she is probably the least likable female character ever, besides Bella from Twilight.
Why is this not bigger on the list? Any Hunger Games fans would love this - the Maze Runner (the first book) is like the Hunger Games (also the first book), with being trapped in a foreign place and needing to get out alive, both places are set in a rather post-apocalyptic world (admittedly The Maze Runner more than The Hunger Games), the only difference is that The Maze Runner has a much wider variety of settings and the plot line, though still pretty much 'overthrow the evil guys who threw us in this hellhole', is much deeper with more twists and stuff.
Also, let's face it, the ending for The Maze Runner was better, Mockingjay ending on such a sad note (I cried when Prim died... still do sometimes), and after all the trouble Team Katniss (yup, I'm calling it that) went through, Prez Snow just didn't seem to get what he deserved, making life hell for all the people in the districts, then dying by CHOKING on BLOOD. He deserved to die... slowly... painfully... where at least ...more
I absolutely love any rick Riordan book but the maze runner books captivated me more than anything, I was always on edge always enticed by its drama and action and mystery also I just want to say newt was favorite and Teresa should not be with thomas.
I thought these books were great, if you liked hunger games or divergent then I think you'll love these books. First movie left out a lot of details that the first book includes that give you insight to why the big events happen
Each story is unique and thrilling. Also has the most classic villain, slappy , the living dummy. A memorable phase in most peoples' childhood.
I can not believe that this is so low on the list, how did twilight get higher than this? That's so sad! These books are classics from childhood, every book had a twisted plot that left you wondering what was next, then right at the end it it twists and surprises you every time. And just as they say, readers beware you're in for a scare.
After I read the book "The Haunted School", I can't sleep until about 3 o'clock in the midnight! The whole series is terrifying and creepy but the series deserves a 5-star rating. I enjoyed the books. Continue writing,R.L. Stine!
Goosebumps is an awesome series. Goosebumps rocks! It starts out as an average kid's life and then something totally out of this world happens and then the the middle of the book is a kids worst nightmare. And then, yay! There's a happy ending, well, at least for most of them! >) >) Goosebumps is always great to read when your bored! Go R.L. Stine!
Ugh Oh my gosh, I hated these books. Seriously, I couldn't get past the first book. So boring, so unnecessarily complicated, it could have been a great series except that it was SO COMPLICATED. The characters took WAY too much time just trying to explain everything. In no way was this better than Hunger Games, in fact when I gave up on reading Divergent( Something I rarely ever do with books, especially dystopias) I immediately went back to read Hunger Games again just so I could recover and read something that I actually enjoyed.
I think these books had the potential to be SO GOOD, but instead of focusing on world-building and explaining the different factions, we're forced to focus on two of the most BORING characters in any series I've read. Tris is such a cookie-cutter basic protagonist, who's only personality traits are "selfless" and "heroic", as well as her relationship with a one-dimentional emotionally abusive jerk. I don't even remember the friends' names they were so unmemorable. Terribly written overall, read the Hunger Games instead, it's pretty much the same thing only the Hunger Games is FANTASTIC
Why is this not in the top 3?!?!?! This series if AMAZING. After I finished Harry Potter I didn't want to read anything else but I finally picked up divergent and it was sooo good. I spent all weekend reading and could not put it down. Finally a series where the main character doesn't always live happily ever after. Phenomenal.
I just want to say that this is SUCH an underrated book. Four/Tobias is like my favorite fictional boyfriend of all time and Tris is a truly awesome main character. Veronica Roth is an AMAZING author and deserves more credit than she gets. Warning for those who haven't read the books though... Tears are ahead!
It is a very good series, with excellent clarification on words that are harder to pronounce. This series is very exciting, and makes you want to keep reading. I finished this series in one month because of how exciting and interesting it is. It is delightfully funny, and makes you smile. There are many mysteries in it, and then later gets solved later in the series. There is always a surprise in each book. All of the characters have an important role in something. When you read the books in the series, it seems like your really there! I hope you will read this amazing series as well.
A series of unfortunate events should 100% be at number 1! This series is the best! This book should get a lot more respect and appreciation than Harry Potter and all other (fantasy) book series. No offense to all Harry Potter fans and fans of other book series but fantasy and magic isn't my thing. Realistic fiction is so much more attractive than unrealistic fiction. Unrealistic fiction is boring. Oh, and by the way, Count Olaf is the best villain ever! He is far better than Lord Voldemort and all other villains in Harry Potter, and all the characters in Asoue are far more interesting.
I think these books are alright at best (mediocre at worst). It's not that I don't particularly like them, it's just that compared to all these other books, it's not all that great. I think it would mostly be fourth and fifth graders who would like these books, and when they argue it's better than Harry Potter and have never actually read Harry Potter, it starts to get annoying. I am a little kid, and I personally would rather read Harry Potter.
Yay Harry Potter!
This series is so brilliantly written! With twists and turns on every page it makes the books impossible to put down. It's not all sunshine and rainbows either (in fact, none of it is) which makes it, in a sense, refreshing. Not to mention that the writing style was one of the most interesting I've ever seen. It seemed to make the books even more captivating. This should definitely be higher on the list!
Yes, yes, and yes. Survivors is my second favorite book series from Erin Hunter. Screw off Harry potter fans, cause here comes Survivors! This has so much drama, so much, I could DROWN of happiness in it! I got this book on accident, and I've already fallen in love. Lucky, the main doggy, is seriously lucky. (SPOILER ALERT) When I opened up to the prologue, I instantly fell in love. Pip? Squeak? Cutest things ever! Okay guys, if you read this far, I honestly appreciate you. NO ONE ever reads my things, at least I don't think they do. Anyways, like I said, Screw off, Harry! We are Survivors!
It goes seekers, either survivors or warriors. Then the rest of you books. Sorry but I love Erin Hunters books.
It's a bit hard to get into at first, but the series immediately improved and got better as time went on.
Starts out boring but gets better and better and is now one of my favorite book series!
Why do people hate this series? I mean, bears are awesome! They have the intelligence of a human. Anyways, when you start one book in this series, you can't stop. The last and fifth book are so sad and amazing! Warriors sucks. So does Survivors. Who likes cats and dogs? They are just making my heart vomit.
PS Any fan of Erin Hunter knows she is not real. She's a lot of people (writers). Don't comment if you don't know this. You are a stranger here. Get lost!
I like this series. It's not as exciting as Warriors or Survivors, but I like bears, and I'm glad I gave this series a chance when it came out.
Love it. But it's probably my least fave Erin Hunter series.
Touches your heart
I love the Thea Stilton books more (Geronimo ones besides The Kingdom of Fantasy are kinda boring) because they have more mystery in them, but can sometimes be boring as heck. Best ones are Hollywood Hoax and Mystery in Paris.
Way too many books in this series, boring unfunny and text isn't fun. Overrated in my old elementary school. I'd rather read The Emoji Movie junior novelization (bad book)
Oh my goodness! This book is my favorite series of all time! Why did Geronimo Stilton go in the 17th place?
Books are funny for young kids like for first and second graders! Too easy for others though
OK! Let's talk about how I totally hate it!
1. It is written by different authors so each one has a different style. I hate that. I like books with only one style
2. The plot is so boring and it sucks. Never gets interesting
3. The books have old fashioned names like it was from the 1980s
4. The authors seem to have bad ideas because at the end, the people give up. Why would they? I would totally not give up if I were Dan and Amy.
5. So NOT INTERESTING!
6. Kind of weird series.
Have you ever noticed that the title doesn't match the main idea of the book? Totally weird. Books were bad and it never gets interesting. I recommend Harry Potter, totally.
I think there are just too many books in the series. By the time I reached the end I forgot what happened in the first book.
This is a really great series. Too bad they ruined it by adding the other series like Cahills VS Vespers, Unstoppable, and Doublecross. The other three sucked.
These were my absolute favorite growing up and taught me a BUNCH about history. They're great because there are a lot of them but you can read one and not be lost.
Best most creative series ever! My child reads these books almost everyday and checks out at the library every time he goes. He has even told his brother to read them. I think whoever made this made a mistake. How can it be 34? It deserves to be in the top ten list. Mary Pope Osborne is just an amazing author!
Thank you Mary Pope Osborne. Your ideas are so creative and I have learned so much from these books!
Oh my god I read these from when I was 6 to now! I loved these when I was younger.
Wings of Fire is just...amazing. I was a lazy reader, and when I read wings of fire, I zoomed past through each book. Now I am waiting for the new one to come out and Oh MY GOSH it is unbearable! Now, because of Wings of Fire, I read books with content, and I now read a new chapter book every week. Wings of fire is perfect for people who don't like reading, because all the characters are amazing, the world building is so fun to read about! And DRAGONS! Who does not get excited about DRAGONS!
I LOVE wings of fire, why on earth would anyone read any other stupid books when Wings of fire is a work of art, when I read it, I almost feel like I'm in the book with them, just overseeing and feeling and hearing and tasting, and smelling everything.Wings of fire should be a number 1# series and the only one with "New York's best-est selling series in the universe." Why would anyone read book series other than the ones by Erin hunter and Tui T Sutherland, Spoiler, THEY ARE THE SAME PERSON.So please only read books by these people (Jk read whatever books you want) if you want the best experience in a world of amazing things.
I think Harry Potter is stupid. I love reading, and this is my #1 favorite book! I love the wings of fire the lost heir and it was so cool! I... well, you guessed it! I believe it is supposed to be #1! It is my favorite book and I didn't like reading the first time I read this and all I read was a word. Later, I found out the wings of fire the lost heir, well, my mom bought it. I read carefully and I found that it was so great!
Warriors and Wings of Fire are my modern faves. Narnia and Lord of The Rings/The Hobbit and Alcott's works are the old books I love. Wings of Fire has such a good plot. Awesome build up, amazing characters, not too violent, some deaths, defined personalities, and the right amount of admiration/hate for foes. You name it, Wings of Fire is awesome! I have a friend who hates reading, but loves Wings of Fire.
"This book is AMAZING. Even after you have read the series three times, you can come back to it and experience the same emotions you did the first time around: wonder, happiness, shock and adrenaline. After a while the series seems to be stretching along too much, that's true, but it's a pretty good read. Why isn't this ranked much higher?
I truly love this book, I have re-read this series three times now, and I wonder how many more times I'll read this series. The perfect blend of technology and fantasy attracts both young and old readers alike.
This series is a must read!
Love it, love it, LOVE IT! I read "Artemis Fowl:The Eternity Code" and it actually had me crying! I can't believe Butler gto shot instead of Artemis! But he IS a Butler, after all.
12 year old MasterBrain and a thief clever enough to steal sacred things from the fairies. How in the world did Twilight get in front of this masterpiece? Many of you people have not read this book
Why is this not on the top ten? Honestly, The Mortal Instruments has of the best world-building I have ever seen. Everything is so complex and intricate, and every little action has repercussions that reappear centuries later. All of the books are tightly linked, and there are little details and references that link back to characters from prequels series that took place over a century ago. And every single one of the characters has a deep and complex personality. The writing is beautiful, and everything and everyone (even the villains) are relatable, and have a legitimate reason for what they do.
This series should be much higher. In my opinion, it's so much more amazing that a dozen listed prior. The books are an emotional roller coaster where you share such a love hate relationship with the characters. There are so many moments where you just want to reach in and knock some sense into them, yet also many moments where you just want to reach in and hug them. But overall pretty overrated book but actually lived up to the hype which is something not all can achieve.
I am so sad right now. Why is this series so low? The others before weren't as good, like the diary of a wimpy kid was higher! Seriously? Who voted for these? Anyway, I love this series so much. The characters are amazing, the plot is action-packed, fast-paced and so, so interesting. I love this series and it should be number 1 or no. 2, I still can't decide between Harry Potter and this!
The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices are my favorite book series ever! They are phenomenal and always keep you in constant suspence. In my opinion, both series should be in the top 10. Not only is it completly unpridectable, but its also expressive. We laughed and cried with the characters, and personally, these series helped through a very tough time. I highly recommend them!
The Giver Quartet is the most well written series I've read, the only one I really would like to read, and the only one that interests me. Often times people like reading about magic and fantasy, however the quartet is based on Utopian and Dystopian societies with incredible characters and storylines. It truly is a story to read. 10/10 recommend. The movie The Giver does not live up to the books standards and leaves out many details however. I am just starting Son, however my favorite of the first 3 is Messenger. Messenger follows the story of previous characters from the first 2 books. It is very sad, and Lois Lowry's way of writing is very unique. An adventure to follow.
The Giver Quartet is hands down THE BEST Newbery-winning book series. They are really insightful and very eye-opening, with amazing storylines and characters. They are awesome books!
This is an amazing book series! Lois Lowry does a great job on making the plot and making you want to keep reading on and on, she thought up this whole idea and everything works so well together! In my top 2 favorite book series at the moment by far! Recommend this series to any mature 11 year old and up.
The Giver movie was better, but the books were awesome!
These were my OBSESSION in third grade. These books are literally my CHILDHOOD! So adorable, great for little kids, just altogether a great series for young children who are transitioning to chapter books. My kids will definitely be reading these!
Junie B. Jones was a big part of my childhood! I loved her so much as a kid she would make me laugh and be on the edge of my seat! She is the best!
Classic Childhood story! Fits lots of children of young ages.
UGH! No, this book is awful! You kinda have bad taste.
