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.

I am very confused.I am searching for another series for reading as I have finished my Harry Potter series

2 Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series - Rick Riordan
3 Warriors series - Erin Hunter

The best book series ever, I very strongly recommend reading the books, they are SO good and need to be higher.

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!

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

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.

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

My brother and I re-read this series every few years! Amazing world building and characters. I love this story.

Excellent read for my more advanced middle school students!

5 Hunger Games series - Suzanne Collins

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

6 Middle School series - James Patterson
7 Diary of a Wimpy Kid series - Jeff Kinney

Well I feel like this is more for elementary school.

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

I love this series! It is one of the best, if you are interested in dragons like me. I highly reccomend you to read these books. They are the best!

One of the best books I have ever read, I love rereading and writing fanfictions about it.

10 Keeper of the Lost Cities - Shannon Messenger Keeper of the Lost Cities - Shannon Messenger Product Image
The Contenders
11 Twilight series - Stephenie Meyer

Yes, let's have 11-14 year olds read a series about a pedophile and a teenager in an abusive relationship. Sounds like a great idea.

12 A Series of Unfortunate Events - Daniel Handler A Series of Unfortunate Events - Daniel Handler Product Image
13 Matched - Ally Condie Matched - Ally Condie Product Image
14 Land of Stories - Chris Colfer Land of Stories - Chris Colfer Product Image

One of the best!

15 The 39 Clues Series - Rick Riordan and others

The 39 Clues series is amazing! How is it on 20? I'm rereading the books right now and I love them so much! It just gets better and better the more you read it!

16 Pretty Little Liars - Sara Shepard Pretty Little Liars - Sara Shepard Product Image

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

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

17 Redwall - Brian Jacques Redwall - Brian Jacques Product Image

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.

18 The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton Product Image

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

19 The Mysterious Benedict Society The Mysterious Benedict Society Product Image
20 The Missing - Margaret Peterson Haddix The Missing - Margaret Peterson Haddix Product Image
21 Blue Is for Nightmares - Laurie Faria Stolarz Blue Is for Nightmares - Laurie Faria Stolarz Product Image

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

22 Bone - Jeff Smith
23 Absolutely Almost - Lisa Graff Absolutely Almost - Lisa Graff Product Image

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.

24 The Lying Game - Sara Shepard The Lying Game - Sara Shepard Product Image
25 The Secret Circle - L.J. Smith The Secret Circle - L.J. Smith Product Image

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
