You gotta love a good story that goes into 3-4-5-10 books. That feeling you get when you finish one book but you know it’s not the end of the story and it goes on to the next part. I don’t want to say fantasy series only but you might notice that it’s a big part of it. So here are some of my favourite book series.
- 𝑯𝒂𝒓𝒓𝒚 𝑷𝒐𝒕𝒕𝒆𝒓 by J.K. Rowling
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (1997)
- Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (1998)
- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (1999)
- Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2000)
- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2003)
- Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2005)
- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (2007)
Everyone who knows me, knows that my favourite out of all books in the world, is < Harry Potter >. I love all the parts of the story. Of course, the dearest of them all is the first one -Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. I read it when I was Harry’s age so I kind of grew up with him. It was part of my childhood and it’s gonna be part of my daughter’s.
- 𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑳𝒐𝒓𝒅 𝒐𝒇 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑹𝒊𝒏𝒈𝒔 by J.R.R. Tolkien
Right after the Harry Potter series is another popular name – < Lord of the rings >. I love the world that the master of fantasy has created for us. Spread into trilogy, the story follows the hobbit Frodo and his journey on the path to destroy the Ring. An adventure filled with elves, magic, friendship and orcs. I love every part of it.
- 𝑨 𝑺𝒐𝒏𝒈 𝒐𝒇 𝑰𝒄𝒆 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝑭𝒊𝒓𝒆 by George R.R. Martin
- A Game of Thrones (1996)
- A Clash of Kings (1998)
- A Storm of Swords (2000)
- A Feast for Crows (2005)
- A Dance with Dragons (2011)
- The Winds of Winter (TBA)
Another fantasy series that I love is < A Song of Ice and Fire > or as everyone knows it < Game of Thrones >. The story is still being written by the author and I haven’t finished the last book out yet but even so, I had to put this in my favourites.
If you like historic tales about kings and queens mix with magic and dragons then these books are definitely for you. I admit that the world and the names are a bit difficult to follow in the beginning but once you get to know them, it gets interesting and exciting. Truly fascinating and obsessive story about 9 great houses (families) and their battles for the throne and who will rule the land. Definitely not your typical medieval kingdom.
- 𝑨𝒍𝒍 𝑺𝒐𝒖𝒍𝒔 by Deborah Harkness
I finished the trilogy last year and I still can’t get over it. It became one of my favourites with the first book < A Discovery of Witches >. The story is well written and very interesting. It’s about a vampire and a witch that fall in love with each other but it’s not your typical love story. I don’t want to go into too much details in case you decide to read it but let’s just say there’s time travelling, magic and demons.
- 𝑺𝒆𝒂 𝑾𝒊𝒕𝒄𝒉 by Sarah Henning
Now, these are fairly new book series and actually it contains only 2 volumes but let me tell you, the story is fascinating and it’s worth reading it. If you like fairytales with a twist, if you like to know what made the villain- a villain, then this is the read for you.
- 𝑫𝒊𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒈𝒆𝒏𝒕 by Veronica Roth
This one is from my teenage years. It’s divided in 3 books with few little stories in between. The main character is a young girl thorn between the choice of being what she wants to be or choosing what she was told to be. It’s a story about choices and the consequences after. And there’s a love story as well.
- 𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑴𝒂𝒛𝒆 𝑹𝒖𝒏𝒏𝒆𝒓 by James Dashner
- The Maze Runner (2009)
- The Scorch Trials (2010)
- The Death Cure (2011)
- The Kill Order (2012)
- The Fever Code (2016)
Young adult science-fiction book series about surviving in the unknown. It’s very easy reading and you won’t leave it until you finish it. The story is about a group of kids put together to survive in a dystopian world where nothing is what they remember it to be. I would definitely recommend it to people who like sci-fi but want a light read.
That’s all for now. There’s more coming on this topic soon. What about you? Do you have any favourite book series?
