Top Ten Best Book Series

The Top Ten
1 Harry Potter Harry Potter Product Image

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.

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

Just amazing.
No words.
Here's my list:
1. HP and Warriors and Goddess Girls. Period.
2. Wings of Fire rock.
3. Sherlock Holmes. Done.
4. I used to like Elephant and Piggy when I was in kindergarten
My Weird School is okay, kind of funny sometimes
The Pigeon is just cute
Who was is awesome
A to Z mysteries get me interested

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.

2 Percy Jackson and the Olympians Percy Jackson and the Olympians Product Image

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 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.

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.

Rick Riordan is by far the best author - his books are flawless.

The books are filled with humor, suspense, emotion, action, and excellent character development.
Besides, who doesn't want to read about Percabeth?
Harry Potter is great too, but Percy Jackson tops it.

It is heartbreaking during moments - Luke's death, Percy's disappearance in Lost Hero, Leo's "death," Percabeth in Tartarus, Jason's death (WHY?!), Hazel's 1990 life, and the trio falling apart (Annabeth, Luke, Thalia).
I cannot express in words how this literature has changed my life.

I still reread it a million times and I'm encouraging my friends to read it too. Extremely captivating - there's no way Diary of a Wimpy Kid or Hunger Games beats this.


This series will always remain with me.

3 The Hunger Games The Hunger Games Product Image

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.

When my brother stared to read the hunger games I bagged my parents to let me read it, but of course there parents so there reply was "You're way to young to read the hunger games! " So I didn't let that stop me so I went on YouTube and watch snippets of the hunger games and refused to read! So for my birthday my parents bot the series for me and oh my gosh I love the series I mean bravo who can think of all of this stuff! Action, romance, adventure, fashion and killing. When I finished the series I was sad that there's no more, at least I have two movies to watch. Why do sooo many people like Harry Potter, in my opinion it's stupid AND HUNGER GAMES SERIES IS THE BEST BOOK SERIES EVER! I rate this series 11 out of 10!

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!

4 Lord of the Rings Lord of the Rings Product Image

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.

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

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
The old that is strong does not wither
Deep roots are not reached by the frost
From the ashes, a fire shall be woken
A light from the shadows shall spring
Renewed shall be blade that was ...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.

5 Diary of a Wimpy Kid Diary of a Wimpy Kid Product Image

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.

Yeah I know many people think it shouldn't be in the top ten... But I'll tell u why it does deserve a place...because these are one of d best book series for children... Yah I agree maybe it's not for adults but even children's opinion must be taken into account n I think this is one of d most popular book series for children in this generation... These books are great to instill reading habits in children n these books are awesome for beginners as these books are very relatable, funny, light hearted and easy to finish... It's the best for children and beginners...N the quality might not be the best n it might not deserve a place here if only quality is measured but I think even people's choice must be taken into account and that too all types of people... Not just adult or ya...

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)

6 Warriors Warriors Product Image

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

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.

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

7 A Song of Ice and Fire

Ok, The wimpty kid maybe is above A song of ice and fire, but Asoiaf is better, and it will always be better. It deserves number 4 spot after harry potter, hunger games and the lord of the rings.

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.

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.

8 The Heroes of Olympus The Heroes of Olympus Product Image

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.

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

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.

9 The Chronicles of Narnia The Chronicles of Narnia Product Image

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!

10 The Hobbit The Hobbit Product Image

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 must be above the wimpy kid. It is absolutely amazing, and wimpy kid is kinda stupid.

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

This is definitely not a series, but it is continued by LOTR. Anyways, The Hobbit was awesome.

The Contenders
11 Maze Runner Series Maze Runner Series Product Image

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 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 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.

THIS BOOK IS AMAZING! Where do I start? The concept of an unbeatable maze. Genius kids. Pain, suffering, hope, and they have each other. It has the same layout as The Hunger Games and it's also like Divergent. So many plot twists! The characters reactions and language are unique!

12 Goosebumps Goosebumps Product Image

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.

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!

This should be number 1. Really, all you Harry Potter fans get out of here for right now. This is how a book should be written...I love Goosebumps so much and the movie too. This brings back childhood memories! If you never heard of Goosebumps and your like 25...that was very sad for you...R.L. stine and Stephen King just are really great horror story writers. Each day I wake up to see my Goosebumps books stacked on the shelf and it just makes my day...and what did you learn in comment?


13 Divergent Divergent Product Image

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

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 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!

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.

14 A Series of Unfortunate Events A Series of Unfortunate Events Product Image

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

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.

ARE YOU FOR REAL? I NEVER THOUGHT OF ADDING A COMMENT IN THIS BOOK THOUGHT THREADS BUT-- good lord, you are such a dum-dum if you haven't read ASOUE. This is definitely, by far, the best book series I have ever read.

15 Survivors Survivors Product Image

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!

16 Seekers Seekers Product Image

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 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.

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

17 Geronimo Stilton Geronimo Stilton Product Image

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)

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.

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

18 39 Clues 39 Clues Product Image

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.

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

19 Magic Tree House Magic Tree House Product Image

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!

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

20 Wings of Fire Wings of Fire Product Image

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.

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!

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.

No words need to be said for people to see how outstanding this work of art is. No other book's could even compare to this. I read the first chapter of the the first book and was like, this is my book now. Darkstalker is my favorite book from this series. -Flamewathcer from the Skywings and the Nightwings.

21 Artemis Fowl Artemis Fowl Product Image

"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?

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.

Just love it, story of a 12 year-old mastermind working with fairies to stop evil... No beating it

22 The Mortal Instruments The Mortal Instruments Product Image

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!

24 The Giver Quartet The Giver Quartet Product Image

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!

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.

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.

I loved these books mainly because I finally found out what happened to jonas

25 Junie B. Jones Junie B. Jones Product Image

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!
