I personally love a good book series. I love being able to immerse myself in a world and to get to really know the characters and this is something that is quite hard to do in a stand alone. There are some good ones out there don't get me wrong but that is a post for another day. So without further ado lets get into some of my favorite book series of all time!
Okay so this one is a pretty obvious one. Most book lovers love the Harry Potter series. I grew up with this series and I read the books as they came out. At first it was only me and my Grandad who read these books and we would always talk about how the rest of my family were such muggles. This series really does hold a special place in my heart.
The Hunger Games
This is another fairly obvious one again lots of book lovers enjoy The Hunger Games. This was the first dystopian series I ever read and it really got me interested in the genre.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus
I really enjoy the Percy Jackson books, in fact I really enjoy anything that Rick Riorden writes. He is one of my autobuy authors. I love the humor in these books they will often make me laugh out loud.
The Abhorsen Trilogy
Aside from Harry Potter this was one of the first fantasy series I read which again got me really interested in the genre. I loved the magic system in this I thought it was really unique and unusual. I really need to re-read this series as they've now brought out some more books in addition to the original three that I read.
The Passenger Duology
This was a recent read for me. I finished it earlier on this year and it quickly became a favorite. Some of my favorite themes in books include time travel and pirates and this has both so was a win win for me.
The Snow Like Ashes Trilogy
This was another fairly recent read for me, I completed this series last year. I loved the characters, the pacing was great and it was set in such an interesting world.
The Rizzoli and Isles Series
So far this list has consisted of a lot of YA and a lot of fantasy which I love but another one of my favorite genres is thriller/mystery and Tess Gerritsen is definitely a favorite author. I love her Rizzoli and Isles series, not only are the mysteries great but I love how we also follow Rizzolis private life and how this intertwines with her work life.
So there we have it here are my favorite series I have read so far. There's probably some popular ones that you will notice are missing, I'm looking at you Throne of Glass, however, they are definitely on my TBR I've just not got round to them yet.
What are your favorite series? Let me know in the comments, I love recommendations.
