1. Harry Potter by J.K Rowling

Best book series ever. I love Rowling's world of magic and I love how logic and everything ties into the book magically. I'll admit PJO is more exciting but I feel like Rowling puts more thought into her plot and how everything ties together. Harry Potter is awesome.

Honestly, books are NOT my thing... But when I started reading Harry Potter out of boredom I couldn't stop reading it! I always used to sneakily read it during class and boring history lectures. It absolutely takes me into a different world and gets me imagining all sorts of things! Now I'm really sad the whole series ended and I already read the whole thing... But what the hell? I'm reading it again! BEST BOOK EVER! Love you miss Rowling!

Are you kidding me? Harry Potter is the best book ever and it should unarguably be at the top of the list. There's not a dull or boring moment in it.J. K Rowling has created a whole new world that everybody can find a place in it. It's magical but at the same time it has logic. It's everything a book should be.

I am reading this book now and I can not stop l love it so much.it boring at the beginning but once you get into it it's so good you can't put it down I am obsest with this book if you don't read it now you will regret it
The Harry potter can be your best friend when you read it he is so active and alert I love him and so should you. Children love reading this book series trust me I read it every night.!

2. Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan

No offence to Harry Potter (it’s a great series too) but this series was always more interesting. It gets the person interested in the first line and the style of writing is the best. The reader will never get bored by Percy’s wit.

Di immortales! This should be #1! I mean, I love Harry potter but it's trash compared to Percy Jackson. Now raise your hand if you ship Percabeth!

AMAZING SERIES! Percy is an extremely relatable (besides the whole god for a parent and fighting monsters thing...) and real character. One of the best book series ever

I LOVE this series! Would 100% recommend this for everyone! It continues to bring Greek mythology to generations in a smart, thrilling and hilarious way, even though this series is 15 years old! I'll love these books forever! But avoid the movies at all cost.

3. Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games is awesome. Also a lot of the characters that died didn't deserve to die. Like Prim, Rue, Thresh, Madge, Cinna, President Coin (no just kidding), and Foxface to name a few. Anyway the Hunger Games is an amazing series full of action and a great plot. One thing, though: the romance is really tacky.

I think the Hunger games is the best series of all time! I have read so many books but none of them stick to me as the hunger games did. It had so many different idea's in one book it is my Favourite book series! I strongly regimen this series. Huger games is by far the best book EVER!

Mindblowing! An incredibly emotional story of brutal murder and life over humanity. With twists around every page forcing you to re-read everything you just read. A must read for anyone with a heart, a heart that will be ripped to pieces at every chapter.

Okay, as much as I love The Hunger Games, it's a little overrated. You guys should read Gregor The Overlander, another book series written by Suzanne Collins. I think love it more than The Hungers Games. It's incredible

4. Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan

Look I mean I’m nine, but seriously, if you don’t read these books, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? Or read Percy Jackson first, then Heroes of Olympus, then Trials of Apollo, then Kane Chronicles, then Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard. Rick Riordan is the best with no doubt and you’ll love the heroes: Leo, Piper, Jason, Annabeth, Percy, Hazel and Frank. READ IT! I really encourage you to vote for this.
Plus, it’s WAY BETTER than that horrible Harry Potter stuff

This should so be higher up. If you saw the all caps explosion of fangirl above. That was me. These are perhaps even better than the original books. They are filled with great lovable characters who had great lovable flaws. They go through a lot and develop and change and live and die (maybe possibly, no spoilers here! ) together. They seven main characters include characters from the old books and some new ones as well. There is rarely a dull moment and are ABSOLUTELY worth the read.

I cried when I realize that there are gonna be no more books concerning the seven, Nico and Reyna. I LOVED them and their adventures. This is one of my favorite books series.
This whole is humourous, action-packed and sassy(PERSASSY(go on the internet if you don't know what this means)). I loved how the seven interacted and I was so glad Nico finally found happiness and acceptance(I seriously need to read more about his romance with Will)

This should be up with the original Percy Jackson series. I love both series with all of my heart and each one of the characters is SO unique and amazing in their own ways. I'd recommend the books to ANYONE. If you haven't read them, do it. You won't regret it.

5. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare

I absolutely ADORE this series! I just finished City of Fallen Angels (Book 4) and I am literally counting down the minutes until I can go get book 5. I have to say that my favorite series are Rick Riordan's books but this series is AMAZING and seriously deserved to be a lot higher.

I am obsessed with books. I have literally read all the books on this list plus more and this series seemed like the best. I started reading it and literally finished the series in a week. I know, nothing is better than Harry Potter but seriously...

I prefer Harry Potter definitely but these are my second favourite books I adore them and I'm obsessed with them! The characters and the plot and the whole world are so great they should be higher

This is so addictive I am glad I read it before the movie came out which kind of spoilt it. Readers, this is nothing like the movie. IT IS WAYYY BETTER. The movie does no justice to it.

6. The Lord of The Rings by J.R.R Tolkien

I love the Lord of the Rings books , I am a huge Lord of the Rings number one fan . I hoping to get other two books in the series for my birthday and I cannot wait to read them !

Beats all the book series all the way, yes, including Harry Potter. I'm avid reader since the age of 6 and I've read hundreds of books and all I can say is that, no books ever could best LOTR. I read Harry Potter when I was 16 and Lord of the Rings when I was 17, and I have to start telling people off for liking Harry Potter more after I finished reading both of the series. Yeah, Harry Potter is too a good series, no deny, but LOTR is just so awesome that... That it is indescribable in words, you know? Those beautifully written characters, suspension story and exciting adventures of Frodo keeps you going all the way! And may I demand, why is LoTR ranked 5? And Darren Shan series third and fourth? Must be the crazy fans... Percy Jackson is a great series too, guys. Percy is full of humor but he's a little dumb sometimes. Darren Shan books are like sleeping pills; I feel asleep reading them (no offense guys) because they're boring. Seriously no offense. Anyway, LoTR is the best series ...more

How the hell is this book #8. LOTR is a book that will be on shelves forever in my opinion. The book series has funny characters like Pippin and Merry and yet has a serious plot that isn't laughed about. This book is #1.

Greatly executed series, flawless. Tolkien created a book before it's time. Although I recommend it to those who have a higher reading level. I personally believe it should be

7. The Saga of Darren Shan by Darren Shan

This was the series that made me start reading. I am dyslexic and so found it difficult to read but since stumbled upon these books I haven't stopped. I have read everything Darren has written and I have to say these books are his best work. They have deep characters and an awesome plot, with great twists. The thing I like about this series is how easy it is to pick up and read; it has no over complicated plot and it is really easy to follow. Furthermore, the characters are believable, making you either cheer for them or hate them. There was also a few times when a tear was brought to my eye. I would recommend this series to anyone of any age.

This is the series of books that really got me hooked to reading! I got the first book as a Christmas present and was immediately hooked. By February, I had and read all of this series. This series of books is one of my favorites and I can honestly say I have read it about 5 times and can quote it! Because of this series, I have brought all of Mr. Shan's books and he has a section, a very large one I might add, on my book shelf! He is my favorite author and I have had the pleasure to meet him! I have to read this series again! It's full of action and very emotional and because of my excessive talking of these books, my friends know everything about them though they haven't read them! Love it so much!

I absolutely love the Saga of Darren Shan because it was the first ever horror series I read in my life and after reading it I have gotten so gripped with his books that I just can't get enough of them. All the series that he has wrote are amazing and mind blowing. So if you are ever bored with life just grab a Darren Shan book and you will enter an astonishing realm of all things demonic and dark. The Saga of Darren Shan is jaw dropping and will suck you into the world of Vampires. My favourite quote from the series is " Even In Death May You Be Triumphant ". Finally I would like to say a MASSIVE thanks to Darren Shan for being an awesome author

Although I've loved reading my entire life, it was with this series that I understood the "couldn't put the book down" trope wasn't just a cliche. I missed trains because I was sitting in my room, one sock on, reading furiously.
I laughed out loud, I felt tension, excitement and fear- I cried openly several times, including one notable moment that involved throwing Killers of the Dawn across my room and shouting at it. Those who've read it, you know the chapter I mean. Dammit I felt some serious emotions in this series.
After I finished The Saga, I read Demonata, and the Saga of Larten Crepsley, and The Thin Executioner- and oh, goodness, if I could recommend just one author to a teenage reader, Darren would be it. (I assume every teen already knows about Ms Rowling. Who doesn't? )

8. The Diary of the Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney

Greg is a horrible person, he manipulates his best friend and Rowley doesn't even know it. He's spoiled, thinks he's superior to everyone else and an all around bad person.

Nooo! Not for teens, for babies.

This series has been going on way too long. Jeff Kinney is flogging a dead horse. They used to be semi-interesting but now the author keeps on farting out lame books that are supposed to make me pity the main character but just make me hate him. Just because you can publish more it doesn't mean you should.

Here's a shocker: popularity does not equal quality!

Teens should not be reading these, at least, they shouldn't still be on this reading level. If you are then I'm not hating or anything, reading is hard for some people, but these are not the best books for teens. I still read them for fun sometimes, just for a little trip down memory lane, but I wouldn't do a book report on these after fifth grade.

Go Greg, go! You are the awesome protagonist of my favourite book series which is ranked here on number...13?!? This low?!?

9. Fablehaven Series by Brandon Mull

If you haven't read this series you need to stop reading and go NOW!
OK I see you need a little more convincing okay so first of all if you don't know who Brandon Mull is, he is a really creative author and writes many good series. I'm 13 and I read lots of series and Fablehaven is one of my most favorite series tied with, The Lunar Chronicles and the Percy Jackson/Hero of Olympus series.
This is one of my first series and it made me stay up at 3am in the morning just to finish one of the books and I've read it a couple hundred times but yeah its totally worth it! It kept me on edge every page and the story isn't slowpaced which is a big problem in most series I've read. I've suggested my whole lunch table to read this book and we are all really big fans of this series and the other series listed above. (we have like really big debates on which of them is better but yeah) I would rate this a 100 star if possible.

I have to say, Brandon Mull easily became one of my favorite YA authors. I originally got his book, "The Candy Shop Wars", for a road trip with my two boys (6 and 8 at the time). We fell in love with the story and the sense of adventure that pulled us into the story and left us invested in the various characters. So for the next trip the boys requested more by Brandon Mull. that is when I found Fablehaven. Wow! The story was absolutely amazing, and had my husband and me on the edge of our seats as much as both the boys. The whole family binge listened to this series, and the boys have both listened to it at least twice more each in the last couple years. This series helped develop my kids love for books, adventures, and reading.

My older sister is still obsessed with this series, and she's a sophomore! She won't even let me look at her books.

10. Divergent by Veronica Roth

Way to complicated. The characters took way too much time just trying to explain things, and it was SO boring. I VERY RARELY ever stop reading a book with out finishing it, especially dystopias, but I gave up on this one about half way through. So dull, so plain, I couldn't force myself to like it.

This book series is Amazing! It is clearly the best. You will surly be disapointed when it ends. I want to read them over again. Veronica Roth dud a fantastic job. This should without a doubt be at the top of the list!

This series was not afraid to do things differently, throw in a curve ball here and there. I am an avid reader so I don't cry when reading, but this one did. It made me cry and hurt and I couldn't put it down.

Amazing, this book had me hooked from the start and had me reading the rest nonstop. This was a compelling story of love compassion and the true meaning of bravery.
