Most Underrated Books and Book Series

The Top Ten
1 Lumatere Chronicles - Melina Marchetta

No one really ever reads it. The author, Melina Marchetta, is probably the most underrated author of the decade. The Lumatere Chronicles is the greatest historical book in my opinion. Great plot, characters, and settings.

2 Artemis Fowl - Eoin Colfer

Honestly, Artemis Fowl is so underrated. It's fast-paced with original ideas and brilliant characters. It's awesome for a fantasy series with humor and wit.

The "Best Artemis Fowl Characters" list is barely used. There were only five comments when I last checked.

A riveting sci-fi series starring one of the smartest and most complex protagonists ever.

3 Evil Genius Series - Catherine Jinks

A great book trilogy, just behind the Artemis Fowl series. It's nerve-wracking, has lots of plot twists, and no grammatical or spelling errors.

By: Catherine Jinks

4 Eragon - Christopher Paolini
5 The Merchant of Death - D.J. Machale

I seem to almost never hear about the Pendragon series, which is unfair because it's both interesting and better than a lot of popular books.

6 Replica Series - Marilyn Kaye

A great series even if it is a tad bit short. It portrays the evil behind school doors and how cloning is possible. I started reading it when I was in the fifth year, and I only remembered it now.

By: Marilyn Kaye

7 The Capture - Kathryn Lasky
8 Starcrossed Series - Josephine Angelini

I think it's underrated. I never saw it in trailers, and very few read them. This is the third Greek mythology-based book I've read, and it's really good. Highly recommended for teens and up.

9 Mister Monday - Garth Nix
10 Time of the Eagle - Sheryl Jordan

Admit it, this book is not very famous. The reviewers only reviewed this book because the author previously wrote an award-winning book. Thankfully, some of the Goodreads readers have read this book and approved.

The Contenders
11 The Field Guide - Holly Black
12 Cassidy Jones Series - Elise Stokes

I absolutely love this book. When I first started using Kindle, the first thing that came up in the free section was this book, so I started reading it. I found it highly entertaining, and I can't believe that it's free even though it's great.

It's a debut book, and I know that the author will have a very lively writing career.

13 The Akhenaten Adventure - Philip Kerr
14 Vampeen Chronicles - Christin Lovell

A new twist! It's not the everyday vampire story, and I absolutely love the love triangle between the characters. Christin Lovell has some skills! I've never seen anyone reading this, and I always wonder why.

By: Christin Lovell

15 The Lightning Thief - Rick Riordan
16 Psion Series - Jacob Gowans

Psion Beta, Gamma, and Delta are the best underrated series in the dystopian world. Even though I love Hunger Games and Divergent, I can't resist the urge to list this one.

It's action-packed, coupled with romance, comedic elements, and Sammy is witty even if he's a bit offensive sometimes.

17 Fablehaven - Brandon Mull
18 Warrior Cats - Erin Hunter

You shouldn't judge a book by its cover. It may be about cats, but it has complex characters and made me cry once, to be honest. My friends refuse to read it because of the cat part, but Warriors is an amazing series. Not the best, but it's up there on my favorite list.

I hate that people judge it because it's about cats. This book series is amazing and better than Harry Potter or all of those other idiotic books that people seem to like, like Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

I swear, if you read this series, it will change your life for the better.

19 The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel - Michael Scott
20 Cat Clan Series - C. L. Bevill

A very underrated Kindle book. It's about the feline weres and the fact that not all females are weak. The Harvest Moon one earned a special place in my heart.

By: C. L. Bevill

21 The City of Ember - Jeanne Duprau
22 The Bad Beginning - Lemony Snicket
23 The Maze Runner Series - James Dasher

Made me cry and plot was good. but the ending pissed me off. If you don't like spoilers stop reading now but trying to end on an optimistic/romantic note when everyone close to the protagonist and love interest just died is messed up. At least do a jump cut forward in time to when the memory of all your friends + majority of humans on earth dying isn't the most important development.

But other than that, the books are good, give them a try as they are very emotional.

Amazing and underrated. I love this book series. It is one of the few book series that had my own vivid movies going on in my head as I read them without having seen the actual movies.

I read it for hours every day without getting bored. The Scorch Trials (the second book in the series) is one of my favorite books of all time. Definitely underrated and definitely recommended!

24 Wings Series - Aprilynne Pike

I just love fairies and Tamani! This is a great book, and you may disagree about its popularity, but I think it's still underrated. It is well-written, and the female may be stupid sometimes, but she can't be underestimated.

25 Frog and Toad are Friends - Arnold Lobel
