These are just a few that springs to mind immediately when I think of my top favourites. Some of them are fairly new reads of mine and some I’ve been rereading for years and years but they’ve all managed to make their way to the top of my list.
The 1st of course has to be the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. Classic, amazing, legendary and iconic, a staple at the top of my list and will forever remain there! This series consists of The Philosophers Stone, The Chamber of Secrets, The Prisoner of Azkaban, The Goblet of Fire, The Order of the Phoenix, The Half Blood Prince and The Deathly Hallows.
My 2nd series on this list is the Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo. This duology consists of Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom. These books are beautifully written, complex and intricate. The characters are diverse and plot is fast paced and action packed!
The 3rd series on my list is Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan. This series includes The Lightning Thief, The Sea of Monsters, The Titan’s Curse, The Battle of the Labyrinth and The Last Olympian. I read these books when they first came back in 2005 and I loved it. Percy’s narrative is so much fun, it’s very fast paced and there are so many plot twists, adventure and friendships it’s just a joy to read.
The 4th series on my list is the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas. This series consists of Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight, Heir of Fire, Queen of Shadows, Empire of Storm, the novella The Assasin’s Blade and Tower of Dawn. I actually loved this series. I thought the characters were amazing, the storyline throughout the series is so convoluted and intricate and detailed, I’m dying to continue on in October with Kingdom of Ash.
The last series on my list is The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. This series includes City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass, City of Fallen Angels, City of Lost Souls and City of Heavenly Fire. This was the series that really brought me back into the reading world. This series is really character driven, with so many jaw dropping, action filled moments that are just so much fun to read! I’ve read and reread this series multiple times and I love it more and more every time.
