I’ve talked a lot about some of my favorite books, but I don’t know that I’ve done a post before on my favorite series. And since I just share my screen-based analogy of books, which concludes that book series are the ultimate reading experience for me, I thought I needed to remedy that oversight ASAP.
So…here it is!
My 5 favorite book series of all times
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
I’ve said a lot about Harry Potter. You may recall my post about why I love Harry Potter.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
I’ve talked about these books a lot too. Again, the details are just fantastic. Plus they’re fairy tales, but set in space. Can these books just be made into movies right now?!
The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
I can’t understand why this series hasn’t gotten more love. There are 5 teenagers with specially honed abilities (not super powers) that help the FBI solve cold cases. Except they always seem to end up in life or death situations. Not to mention, they live together, so the hormones are flying and romance abounds. Jennifer Lynn Barnes is a professor of literature, and she is the master of hooking you with suspense throughout her books.
The Selection by Kiera Cass
I can’t really explain why I love these books so much. America drives me crazy in the first three books. But there is something about the fight for the crown and the relationships in these books that wins me over every time. Plus the audiobooks are great, so they’re perfect for re-reading.
His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman
These books are ripe with deeper meaning and religious (or anti-religious) undertones, and I can’t entirely figure out what happens at the end. But that just serves to make them even better and to keep me coming back for more. I am finally reading The Book of Dust book 1 right now, and it’s so wonderful to be back in this fantastical world that Pullman has created.
Runner Up: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I had to at least mention this series because it was one of the first great YA series that I loved. I only didn’t include it in my top 5 because it hasn’t been quite as timeless for me as the others. But it’s still amazing. Well, right up until the end when Katniss picks the wrong guy.
