Top 10 Best Book Series to Read In Middle School

The Top Ten

1 Harry Potter series - JK Rowling

I finished this series, now I don't know what to do with my life. - PianoQueen

2 Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series - Rick Riordan
3 Hunger Games series - Suzanne Collins

Also read this trilogy in fifth grade(middle school) I highly recommend it. - PianoQueen

4 The Lord of the Rings series - J. R. R. Tolkien

Depends on your maturity level; Harry Potter is a children's book, The Lord of the Rings is very much a book for grownups.

5 Diary of a Wimpy Kid series - Jeff Kinney

Well I feel like this is more for elementary school.

It's good,but kinda overrated and it feels like a book for elementary school

6 Middle School series - James Patterson
7 Kane Chronicles series - Rick Riordan

I really feel like this is one of the more underrated series I've read. Everybody is always comparing it to the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series, and I will say that I do agree that I like those books more. However, the main reason for that is I've been with Percy and the others for 7 more books than I've been with Carter and Sadie. It's very close in my opinion though and when a trilogy is almost as good as a ten book series (or two series), that really says a lot.

8 Warriors series - Erin Hunter

Fantastic! Well written - my son loves these books and it really sparks his imagination!

How is this not more popular than Harry Potter! I love these books!

How is this not in the top 5? This is my favorite book series!

Why is this below Twilight?

9 Eragon series - Christopher Paolini
10 Pretty Little Liars - Sara Shepard

Those books are really intriguing and we don't know what happens next. Awesome series - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

COME ON! This is the best book serie ever. And Why is Twilight on the list? It's the worst and most overrated book ever made - PrettyLittleLiars_BiggestFan

The Contenders

11 Twilight series - Stephenie Meyer

Why is twilight on here? THIS BOOK SUCKS

12 The 39 Clues Series - Rick Riordan and others
13 Blue Is for Nightmares - Laurie Faria Stolarz

Intringuing, interresting, scary and funny at the same time. Really a good book to read - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

14 Matched - Ally Condie
15 Redwall - Brian Jacques

Ought to be higher on the list, it's definitely my all-time favourite series. To anyone who hasn't read these books: you don't know what you're missing. These are some of the greatest books in existence.

I would recommend this series to most people in middle school and older-it is a huge part of my life and the best series I've ever read.

16 Bone - Jeff Smith
17 The Lying Game - Sara Shepard

The plot is cool and the drama is really interesting. Awesome - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

18 The Secret Circle - L.J. Smith

I watched an episode of "The Secret Circle" and I loved it. The T.V. show was based on books and the good seems good - BlueDiamondFromNowhere
