Most Underrated Books and Book Series

The Top Ten
1 Lumatere Chronicles - Melina Marchetta Lumatere Chronicles - Melina Marchetta Product Image

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

2 Evil Genius Series - Catherine Jinks Evil Genius Series - Catherine Jinks Product Image

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

3 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 5th year and I only remembered it now.
By: Marilyn Kaye

4 Starcrossed Series - Josephine Angelini Starcrossed Series - Josephine Angelini Product Image

I think its underrated. I never saw it in trailers, and very little read them. This is the 3rd greek mythology-based book I've read and its really good. Highly recommended for teens and up.
By: Josephine Angelini

5 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 goodreaders have read this book and approved.

6 Cassidy Jones Series - Elise Stokes Cassidy Jones Series - Elise Stokes Product Image

I absolutely love this book. When I first started using Kindle, the first thing that came up on the free section is this book so I started reading it. I found it very highly entertaining and I can't believe that its free even though its great. A debut book and I know that the author will have a very lively writing carreer.

7 Vampeen Chronicles - Christin Lovell

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

8 Psion Series - Jacob Gowans Psion Series - Jacob Gowans Product Image

Psion Beta, Gamma and Delta, I think 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. Its action-packed, couple with romance, comedic and Sammy is witty even if he's a bit... Offensive sometimes

9 Cat Clan Series - C. L. Bevill

A very underrated Kindle book. Its 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

10 Warrior Cats - Erin Hunter Warrior Cats - Erin Hunter Product Image

I LOOOOOOVE this book series, but it's not exactly underrated. It literally is number 6 on top ten book series.
Erin Hunter is one of my top three favs. Her books are flawless. Flawless.

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'll change your life for the better.

This is the best series ever. Diary of a wimpy kid IS wimpy. This is the best series I have read ever book two times or more. There is NOTHING better than this series. GO WARRIORS!

The Contenders
11 Artemis Fowl - Eoin Colfer Artemis Fowl - Eoin Colfer Product Image

Honestly, Artemis Fowl is so underrated…it's fast-paced with original ideas and brilliant characters. Awesome for a fantasy series with humour 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

12 The Bad Beginning - Lemony Snicket The Bad Beginning - Lemony Snicket Product Image
13 The City of Ember - Jeanne Duprau The City of Ember - Jeanne Duprau Product Image
14 The Capture - Kathryn Lasky The Capture - Kathryn Lasky Product Image
15 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 its still underrated. It is well-written and the female may be stupid sometimes, but she can't be underestimated.

16 The Merchant of Death - D.J. Machale The Merchant of Death - D.J. Machale Product Image
17 The Field Guide - Holly Black The Field Guide - Holly Black Product Image

19 The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel - Michael Scott The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel - Michael Scott Product Image
20 Fablehaven - Brandon Mull Fablehaven - Brandon Mull Product Image

An awesome fantasy book

21 Mister Monday - Garth Nix Mister Monday - Garth Nix Product Image
22 The Maze Runner Series - James Dasher The Maze Runner Series - James Dasher Product Image

Amazing and underrated. I love this book series. 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 actually movies. I read it for hours everyday without getting bored. The Scorch Trials (the second book in the series) is one of my favourite books of all time. Definitely underrated and definitely recommended!

The maze runner books are incredible works of fiction. If you didn't like the movies, that's ok, because the books are definitely better. I would read the books before the movies if I were you. But the plot of the books are much different then the movies...

23 Wonder - R.J Palacio Wonder - R.J Palacio Product Image

Most people set it aside after the first few pages, well, it's not the book, it's people. They no longer understand what reading and books are good for. Nowadays, crappy authors such as John Green and Jojo Moyes are the one's books everyone absolutely has to read. "Wonder" is one of the last decade's best books. If you're reading this comment, do not hesitate with the idea of reading the book. "Your deeds are your monuments." Do it!

Ya this book is underrated I asked a lot of people if they've read it and a lot of people said no.I think that more kids should read this book because it's so good! And teaches good lessons.

24 Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs Product Image
