Top Ten Best Book Series

The Top Ten Best Book Series

Harry Potter

This series made my childhood worthwhile. It has everything you would want from a book. Fantastic characters, great plot, twists and turns and a fabulous author. These will become classics with the like of To Kill a Mockingbird. - neemsay

Don't even try to deny it. Harry Potter is, and will always remain the best book series of all time. The characters stayed by our side through thick and thin. We laughed and cried with them. At one point, we all sat desperately at the edge of our beds, hoping for our Hogwarts Acceptance letter to arrive. When it never came, we cried. We dressed up as our favorite characters for Halloween. We dressed up as our favorite characters for no apparent reason. We watched all the movies and read all the books. We actually binge-watched/read them. Then, when that was all over, we watched and read them again to get rid of our Post-Potter Trauma (PPT). We were there during the battle of Hogwarts, during Buckbeak's execution, during Harry's first Quidditch game, during Ron and Hermione's first kiss (which was quite awkward), and finally, when Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Ginny watched their kids boarding the Hogwarts Express. That's when we cried the hardest, knowing the series was over. Our lives ...more

Wow what a surprise there #1. The books are long but intriguing, and what makes this one special is that they got a great movie series too with great actors to visualize it. Not many series get to say they have great books and movies, that's what gives them the edge over everything else. I'm sure this series will be on top for a very long time.

There are heaps of series I have read and loved, but Harry Potter is my favourite of all time. I think the ranking should be (AND I CLEARLY STATE: THIS IS MY OPINION):

Harry Potter
The Hunger Games
The Hobbit
Percy Jackson
Lord Of The Rings
Maze Runner
Divergent Series

and it keeps going... I think J.K Rowling is very creative and I love the idea she had of creating this amazing book. I think that Harry Potter has a good plot line and isn't too hard to read, and isn't too easy. It will always be my favourite book series and please don't say to me that it is bad, because that is just my opinion, you can like what you like.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians

I have no words to describe how much this series has touched me, and the the other Rick Riordan books. Every word that Rick Riordan writes makes you more compelled to keep reading, and he mixes adventure, pain, humor, and real life lessons into his books. By the end of the series, or even each book, you are so connected to the characters that you would give your life for them if they were real. You feel like you are there, in every second of the books. You live and die with these characters. Laugh and cry with them. If you truly read this series, it becomes basically part of you. Another thing I love about Rick Riordan's books is that he has so much diversity in his characters, and everyone gets representation in his books. I never thought I could love a book series so much before I read his books. I keep re-reading and re-reading them because I don't want to let them go. I've never felt this way about any other book series before, and therefore, Rick Riordan is the best author ever.

In my opinion, it's the greatest series ever written because, I mean we get so close to characters. WE see them, we feel them. WE are them. While reading Harry Potter, I was like - I hate Harry's excessive anger issues and he's annoying sometimes and Ginny deserved a better role but this book is awesome, so I'll read. But Percy Jackson, the original series was like diving into a pool filled only with things you can love - the ugly things had at least one pretty things, it was feminist, too and made me feel real, alive. I couldn't stop thinking about it. It's not the world itself, it's the characters, their deeds, their challenges and their mistakes. It's a perfect series which builds up so much pressure, until the last chapter. (Spoilers)

Knowing that they won the war wasn't enough, we needed Annabeth and Percy together. We needed Rachel, Luke's wish, Grover's acceptance, Tyson's growth, just about everything. By the third book, things were intense and the fourth book is so ...more

Before I start, I'd like to say that I'm speaking for all the Rick Riordan books, not just Percy Jackson. Except for the ones that he wrote before he wrote the Lightning Thief, such as The Big Red Tequila, because they are not for me and I have no clue what they are. So, basically, I'm talking about all the books that are in the Rick Riordan universe. So that means, when I'm saying "Percy Jackson", just know that mean all the books of Rick Riordan in the Riordan Universe. Also, I'd like to mention that I'm the biggest fan of Rick Riordan there is and I was since the beginning of time. Okay, now that I said all of that, where do I start? I know. Rick Riordan is, no doubt, the #1 best author of all time(T.I.A.F. = This is a Fact). And his books are not 10/10. I'm sorry, its true. It is actually ∞/10. Incase you couldn't tell, that was infinity out of ten. Rick Riordan's books will always be the best books of all time(T.I.A.F.). And, yes. Its also better than Harry Potter. ...more

This series is the best one EVER. I felt a personal connection to each and every one of the characters. All of Rick Riordan's series are funny, can be sad, but they're really just perfect. They are suspenseful and keep you on your toes. I started to read The Lightning Thief and stopped. Someone told me I needed to get past the beginning and then it would be good. So I tried it again and it has become my absolute favorite ever, besides all of Riordan's other series. He is the best author and creates the best books. I really love the characters in this series, but I have also fell in love with the Heroes of Olympus series. The Kane Chronicals, Trials of Apollo, and Magnus Chase books are all really great I just don't enjoy them as much because they aren't mainly about his original characters like Percy, Annabeth, Piper, Jason, Hazel, Leo, Grover, Coach Hedge, Nico, Reyna, Frank, and all the rest of them. - my_top10

The Hunger Games


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!

The Hunger Games is amazing! Much better than other books like Harry Potter, which I can't stand. I mean, if you like it, that's cool, but I much prefer The Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games is way better than Harry Potter! Seriously, the Hunger Games doesn't get nearly as much credit as it deserves. It's inspiring, well written, and Katniss is an amazing heroine. I mean, come on people! She volunteered for a fight to the death to save her little sister! I bet Hermione wouldn't do something like that.

I have to disagree the Hunger games is an action packed series but the friendships, characters, the writing style and even the Romance is really weak and annoying. - Potterhead2001

Lord of the Rings

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

Harry Potter would not exist of it wasn't for lord of the rings

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.

"These books are very very boring." UUUH, Lord of the Rings is a mature book for adult audiences, not the childish kind for 12 year olds like Harry Potter.


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

This series is Erin Hunter's best book series, and it does not disappoint. It is for all genders and has a complex storyline (most boys would say it is for cat lovers). I'm a dog lover, but I still love this series. This series often features two or three cats' point of views and their lives. It shows what they feel about what is happening and how they feel for other cats, which is one reason I love this series. Another reason I adore warriors are the characters. The book starts out with different cats from later in the story or later in another series talking about things, that creates the suspense already. The series almost makes you love some characters and hate others. Or makes you hate characters when you first hear about them, like Jayfeather, then make them look better or vice versa. I know these are cats, but they seem human, and it makes you care for them so much that it is sad to see them die. I disliked seeing Firestar and Feathertail die, those ones hit me hard. The last ...more

So here's my first issue, DIARY OF A WIMPY KID SERIOUSLY. Okay now I got that off my shoulders I am not going bash out on other people who obviously have different opinions. This is what the website was made for, to show other people's opinions on different things. But there are some book series that you cannot deny are great. I would put LOTR, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, and the Warriors series in that mix. As well as Song of Ice and Fire. But warriors is my favorite. Great character development, great plot, very creative and intelligent storylines, a miz of many genres, very mature and lots of lessons can be learned from these books. I really hope the movie that's coming out about this will do really well.

"Warriors is a book that will enter your Heart. Warriors is not girly, its about cats fighting for their Clans loyally. Warriors is a page-turner with lots of Drama and grief will make a way into your heart. The truth is words cannot describe this wonderful book, for Warriors will forever be my favorite. There will be no other book to match its awesome story of courage and bravery, and also adventure. Warrior Forever!

Diary of a Wimpy Kid

This should NOT be in the top ten! Yes it is popular, but not a good read. It's not something that will keep you occupied and really you are not even reading! You are looking at pictures half the pages!

Well duh what do you think a kid does in his notebook?!?! Plus it doesn't make you smarter to not have picture it you have to picture it in your brain and while your picturing it you forget everything in the book like the plot and scenery that is why it's like 1/2 of the only books I understand. - AnnaRoblox

These books are the best books of all time! My favourite characters are the morons because I am a moron.

I enjoy the books a bit, I'm not hating on the series but I don't think it should be in the top ten - there are way better series - Mnsdjjfijf

I loved this book cause it was really easy and fun to read. I was always cackling at something in each page. And I lived the simplicity. Sometimes I just wanna read something light and entertaining that won't cause me too much strife. This was perfect

A Song of Ice and Fire

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 ...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.

The writing is extremely intricate in this one. SURELY deserves to be on top 5 of this list.

My absolute favorite book series of all time it has everything from erotica to comedy

The Chronicles of Narnia

This book series IS very long, and in my opinion has too many details, but other then that, it's amazing. FOR NARNIA FOREVER!

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?

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. - Aleca

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.

The Heroes of Olympus

In my opinion, The Heroes of Olympus is even better than Percy Jackson and the Olympians. I would never have met Leo Valdez without this series.

You're kidding me! This series should have been number one! Rick Riodan is THE BEST AUTHOR EVER! His books are hilarious as well as action packed and adventurous. If you've read Percy Jackson and the Olympians and think it's good and I agree with you but Heroes of Olympus is even better! The books might not be written the most seriously but that's a good thing as it connects you more to the books so you feel more involved. Another really good thing that about Rick Riodan's writing is that it relates you to real life problems in a very interactive way. I could give you loads of examples but I don't want to spoil the books for you.

Heroes of Olympus was probably the best series I've read. I laughed at the characters and when my friend told me a spoiler about my favourite character I literally screamed during class time! The books are just so epic so if your wondering if you want to read Heroes of Olympus read Percy Jackson and the Olympians first AND THEN READ HEROES OF OLYMPUS! ...more

Not as good as PJO, but still, I thank Uncle Rick for writing this series BECAUSE I WOULD HAVE NEVER MET LEO IF NOT FOR THIS!

This series is just as good, maybe even better than Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

Maze Runner Series

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

President Snow's death is symbolic. Katniss recognized that Coin was her real enemy, and chose to kill her instead. She had to make that choice for the good of others, whereas killing Snow would not have benefited anyone; he could have just as easily been imprisoned while she only had one chance to kill Coin. She also wanted him to die slowly and also wanted to kill him, it was symbolic in the way that you don't always get what you want. - SassyEquine

Why is The Maze Runner so underrated? It should be one of the top 5 (The Hunger Games is a pretty good series). Why I love The Maze Runner :
1. THE PLOT - Well written and nerve wrecking. All of the books just gives you this BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM kind of feels. My heart honestly stopped pumping after the first chapter of The Maze Runner.
2. THE CHARACTERS - Where do I start.. Where do I start.. All so different from one another, you just fell in love with ALL of them (It's true! ) The characters are not just some desperate teenagers who need to escape the maze, but strong individuals who has the determination and strive to survive.
3. You just can not NOT love The Maze Runner. You can't. It's impossible.

Thank you, James Dashner, for creating such an amazing series with an amazing storyline and so unique characters.

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. - SassyEquine

The Newcomers

? Oz Books

The series following Wizard of Oz - UnderratedEpisodeAdvocate

? Time Quintet

The Contenders

The Hobbit

I love The Hobbit there would not be a lord of the rings if the hobbit never came out

This isn't a series its just one book as anyone would no if they'd not just watched the films and put in on this list for that exact reason

The Lord of the Rings is a trilogy, but the Hobbit is just one book. STOP WATCHING MOVIES AND READ A DAMN BOOK!

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 - Aweso


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.

Yes Harry Potter is number 1 and that series TOTALLY deserves it! Goosebumps is good too! It should be probably number5 or 6 because it is much better than other books!

Goosebumps is the best book for starters in my opinion. It's funny, has decently plots and it's really easy to read. If it wasn't for goosebumps I wouldn't have started reading books,

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!


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!

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. - SassyEquine

I'll admit not bad, however much is repeated from The Hunger Games in my opinion. I've read both series and although I like The Hunger Games better, I think this deserves to be somewhere at least in the top 15.

A Series of Unfortunate Events

I was usually not really into chapter books, but a series of unfortunate events made me change my mind! This is my favorite series ever!

These books are excellently written, and have a great emotion set for the story at the very beginning. The characters have interesting personalities. One thing that really strikes me is that no matter how dark these books get, a bit of humor is snuck in at some points. Despite being said that it is entertaining for 5th-6th graders, I'm in high school and I still admire these books (In fact, I'm reading the Carnivorous Carnival right now). Personally, I think this series deserves more respect than Harry Potter. Now, I love Harry Potter, but I think it was pretty lazily written. There is one out of many exciting mysteries in this book that really makes you think hard, and isn't solved until you read the final word of the last book. The main thing that stands out in this series to me is that it ACTUALLY PORTRAYS CHILDREN CORRECTLY! Not many books, not Harry Potter, not The Chronicles of Narnia, could do this right. Well, I think I'm just about done with my praise rant. Again, this series ...more

I love this fandom its amazing. just an iconic book series overall!

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.


Why is this before seekers? This is book is just amazing. It was so boring at first but then I got sucked into it. Which usually does NOT happen to me! - Twigthesurvivordog

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!

It goes seekers, either survivors or warriors. Then the rest of you books. Sorry but I love Erin Hunters books.


I read the first two books (the first one was quite boring but I held out because it was the introduction) were very boring and had no plot

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. - Wildstar93

I've read one book... ITS PURE POOP. Warriors is better

Well obviously! The first book is literally the introduction. ANYWAY, why do you vote with hate comments? Bit silly! :/ - Speedyscout

Love it. But it's probably my least fave Erin Hunter series. - PopcornPelican

Geronimo Stilton

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)

This was my book series when I was a child, I still have my collection on these books ;( - hooman_

Books are funny for young kids like for first and second graders! Too easy for others though

I used to love these books when I was younger! - PrettyLittleLiars_BiggestFan

The Inheritance Cycle

This is literally what inspired me to start writing my own book. And he started when he was young which is truly amazing. - Rathernotbenamed

This series is so complex! The dragon riders are so powerful, but Christopher Paolini takes it beyond the all awesomeness of the dragon riders' magic, he creates an entirely new world just like J.R.R. Tolkien and creates entire nations. Different languages, histories, ranges of living, traditions, it's so complex! I've tried getting that deep in the book I'm writing, and let me tell you, it's very hard. Epic series, the best books EVER!

It is rather humorous that I consider myself both a Dragon Rider and Demigod and it seems like there is a bit of friction between the two groups on this list I can understand why- they are both two completely different book series with completely different styles. Despite my alliance to both, I have to agree that The Inheritance cycle is superior to Percy Jackson & The Heroes of Olympus. (I feel like such a traitor right now. ) Personally for me, the world Paolini created is just so beautiful and so vast and just so plain magical it cannot not be one of the best book series out there... My experience with these books will never be recreated.

I think that this should be second at least.I mean this series is giving J.K Rowling a run for his money. The only thing is that Christopher Paolini doesn't roar loud enough, he needs his voice to be heard! The series may not be long but you can feel the passion in it and the structure.

39 Clues

Nice books. The first book was the best but then it started to get a bit boring.

Terrible. Plot is boring and never gets interesting. Action scenes last for a couple pages and are not even suspenseful. Probably the worst problem though, is that they are all written by different authors, therefore each book has a different writing style.

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.

Wings of Fire

Best series in the whole world. Once you read it, you can NEVER stop reading the series. Come on! Dragons who rule kingdoms! But the Sand dragons queen dies and the three princesses fight for the throne. Blister Blaze and Burn. Who go to war! Then a night dragon makes a prophecy saying that a ground dragon, a water dragon, a sky dragon, another night dragon, and a sand dragon will stop it and choose one of the queens. A peaceful organization called the "Talons of Peace", wish to bring the world down in peace so they get the eggs. Burn catches an ice dragon stealing a sky dragon from the sky dragon palace. Burn kills the ice dragon and the sky dragoon egg that has been stolen. Two other Talons of Peace talk about the egg and one of them gets a rain forest dragon who are said to be lazy. They had no choice so they get it. Later, the one who makes the prophecy, comes to the the Talons of Peace to approve the dragons. But the sand dragon is supposed to have a barbed tail and ...more

I think Wings of Fire is the BEST book series in the whole entire world! I mean, who wouldn't like it? It should be #1! Or at least #2! If you didn't read Wings of Fire, you should read it now. You will LOVE it! Everyone should know that Wings of Fire is the best-- if you didn't know that, you should know that NOW! So PLEASE vote for...WINGS OF FIRE! Thanks if you did.

I've only read the first but it's AMAZING! I can't wait for the coronavirus to be over so I can get back to my school library to read the second book.

Best characters and amazingly (I don't know if that's spelled right) well written!

Magic Tree House

Oh my god I read these from when I was 6 to now! I loved these when I was younger.

Thank you Mary Pope Osborne. Your ideas are so creative and I have learned so much from these books! - Aleca

It a good series and it is very creative and I hope Mary Pope Osborne makes more

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!

It's not based off of whoever made the list, it's based off of what the people think. I used to read the series all the time myself, but there does come an age when you grow out of it... Maybe. At least I did... - JoMama163

Artemis Fowl

"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?

F you twilight. This kid has more brains and power in his pinky than a vampire dose let alone a werewolf - arkwrite

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

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.

Sherlock Holmes

Who is that stupid who put this epic,I mean Sherlock Holmes so low?

So yeah... Twilight is above this... One of the most biggest series and most known and most loved is below twilight... - Thevcrewgeeks

After Lord of the rings this should be in the 2nd place. Those people who have voted here for other series definitely did not read sherlock holmes and that mean they read nothing.

Haha... I can't stop laughing at this hilarious list because silly 12 year olds who can't think anything over than Harry Potter,hunger games and other silly book series are voting here. This classic is sitting at no 44. Seriously? Haha

Beautiful Creatures
The Giver Quartet

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. - WeezaPeeza

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 movie was better, but the books were awesome! - Aleca

Junie B. Jones

These books are the best I loved them so much as a kid and I still do
They are funny relatable books and I enjoy them so much I recommend them 100%

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! - missyweirdo

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! - SassyEquine

I hate this book series why is it on the list it brainwash kids

I find this series to be more productive than The Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I feel like a child should be able to read whatever he or she wants to read. Books open up a kids imagination and helps them a lot with future class literature. Books like Captain Underpants may not be helpful, but it gives the child more of a chance to be themselves. Not to mention, it makes it a lot easier for a child to make life decisions in the future when you let them read the books that they want. Even if a child is only 12 years old, for example, and wants to read a book like 50 Shades of Grey, they should be able to make that decision themselves. This may even help a child be ready to learn about sexual activity when it comes to that time when a parent feels like they should speak to the child. If the kid still enjoys the book with those descriptions in them, then they might be ready; however, if the child changes their mind, and doesn't want to read those types of books anymore, then they might not be ...more - JoMama163

Chronicles of Ancient Darkness (Michelle Paver)

I love this series! This is the perfect book for animal lovers and its packed with adventure!

Gives a great insight on what prehistory was like

The Mortal Instruments

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!

I literally read every book of this series I get in a day because they're all so good! As you get farther into the series the plot is still action packed and there are plot twists everywhere! Every book is so good and it doesn't drag on! This deserves so many more votes!

Ramona Quimby

My best friends last name is also Quimby. She is from Jane by Design. She is portrayed by Erica Dasher. - playstationfan66

The Saga of Darren Shan

I also love Harry Potter but I am voting for this as it is so underrated and they butchered the novel in the movie

So good! Finding out certain events in later books blew my mind!

The best part: it's barely even about VAMPIRISM. It's so much more complicated than that, and it's great.

I have fond memories of this series.. Great for teens

Alex Rider

I agree with all of you. I've read all the books of the series and they are awesome! The plot, the villains, the characters and Alex himself. He is the PERFECT HERO! I can't wait for the next book (Nightshade) to be published. I wholeheartedly recommend them and I'll say it (actually I'll write it...) one more time. This series is the best and deserves to have been put on top 3 of the list!
(P.S. I don't know why but I'll write it anyway: I'm Greek)

I've read a lot of these (in the wrong order... woops) and I have to admit they are incredible

Who wouldn't want to read about a teenage spy?

Best series in the world

Kane Chronicles

I haven't read this yet because I'm still reading Magnus Chase, but after reading all of Rick's other books, I know this must be a spectacular series.

OHHH my this deserves to be right under HP! I loved these books. Way better then percy and magnus

Basically percy jackson in Egyptian myths

I love this series! Wish it went on for longer, though - SnowyOwl

The Bourne Series (Robert Ludlum)
Elephant and Piggy

Elephant and Piggy books have a great sense of friendship and fun and that is why I voted for Elephant and Piggy.

UM hello? No votes! Really, this is like an awesome book series for all ages!

Lol I used to love these!

Love this series! Gerald is so funny!

The Enemy (Charlie Higson)

Great Zombie read...The intricacy of the characters and plot times truly fascinated me. GREAT book series!

Amazing book series, not as well known because it is relatively new.

Probably my favourite book series of all time

Couldn't put it down

The Legend Trilogy

Each book is very well written, the characters are strong, and there is a lot of depth and themes that go into each one. Unlike other popular YA trilogies like the Hunger Games, and Maze Runner, I feel like this trilogy is consistent in terms of plot and overall execution.

The best series I have ever read! Exciting, romantic, fast paced, and thrilling. It gets better every time you read this series.

Wonderful books, great characters, fast paced, overall its amazing.

First book and only book to ever make me cry

Pretty Little Liars

These books are amazing and exciting and the plot is awesome

Watch the show the books are probably just as amazing

I love these books.The T.V. series is awesome too

James Bond (Ian Fleming)

United Artists (its parent company is MGM) owns the rights to the character and trademark. - playstationfan66

Dork Diaries

This is way higher than I would have expected.
No hate lol, I loved the series

In the third grade every girl was obsessed with these books while fellow girl was reading Scooby-Doo and diary of a wimpy kid they are good books too but not as good as harry potter, hunger games, any Percy Jackson book and even Narnia ( which are best sellers and really good) dork diaries is more down to earth with Clifford the big red dog

I didn't like it. Nikki says she is "friendly and dorky", but she is kind of a bully. Chloe was annoying. The books she read were stupid (ice skating couple that has to kill Zompires with double cheeseburgers) and yet everyone calls her a bookworm. You wanna read a real book? Read Harry Potter or Percy Jackson! Zoey was annoying, quoting everything. Brandon is just some stupid pretty boy every girl drools over and Mackenzie is a stereotyped mean blonde girl.

I cannot believe that this is even on the list. There is already enough drama at my school, I don't need more of it, like, this book is basically only girl drama. How is this on the "Best Book Series" list? Please explain. Also, if you want a book, read Harry Potter. This is #1 for a reason.

The Missing

This series is truly awesome - natalily

American Girl

I love these books! It takes you on a journey of what it was like in different time periods. - Aleca

If I Stay

Pretty good, I read both books and thought they were great. Maybe should be top fifteen. - SassyEquine

I have no idea why this series isn't in the top 10.

You love this

Not a series - Username123


The Unwind Dystology is far better than (insert dystopian series here) It's funny, tense and just overall great. I haven't read UnBound yet, but the rest of the series is easily five stars - HaiThere

Read the first book. Was great at first, then started to get slow and then eventually got too boring for me. I'm sure it got better, but I was reading another series at the time and that one kind of took center stage. My friends all love it though, so maybe you'll like it. - SassyEquine

This is a great series. I am 41 and really enjoyed the books. The concept really makes you think.

The Selection - Kiera Cass

My top 5 favorite books in order:
The One, Kiera Cass
The Selection, Kiera Cass
The Diamond Thief, Sharon Gosling
The Half Blood Prince, JK Rowling
The Elite, Kiera Cass

This is my favorite book series of all time! (With Harry Potter close behind) Should be number 1

Young adult---it like the bachelor show but he is a princess--really good.

Awesome series!

Vampire Chronicles (Anne Rice)

Interview..., The Vampire Lestat, Queen of The Damned, Tale of the Body Thief, Memnoch the Devil. The adventures, psyche and mystical philosophy experienced with the charismatic, thoughtful and mischievous vampire Lestat - Billyv
