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

I just started Deathly Hallows, and I'm nervous to think about what to do once I finish it, haha. - Metarock

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.

More of a high school series if you ask me. I've read the first book, it's rather tough to understand, but it's also a brilliant book. It's definitely a must read. - Metarock

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 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?

8 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.

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 Matched - Ally Condie
12 Twilight series - Stephenie Meyer

Why is twilight on here? THIS BOOK SUCKS

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

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

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 Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

This is one of the best books ever. It is an exciting, sad, and amazing book. The movie is also amazing

18 The Lying Game - Sara Shepard

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

19 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

I loved the T.V. show. It was based on a book. It seems pretty good - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

20 Hank the Cowdog - John R. Erickson
21 A Series of Unfortunate Events - Daniel Handler

A dark but amazing book series

22 Keeper of the Lost Cities - Shannon Messenger
23 Absolutely Almost - Lisa Graff

This book is so inspiring. It is about a boy who is behind everyone else. He is always "almost" as good as his friend or almost as good as anything. It is about how he gets through school and life.
