Here are some of the series that I have read and enjoyed, some more than others. I need some suggestions for new ones.


Harry Potter

House of Night

Charlie Bone

Artemis Fowl

Hunger Games

Sookie Stackhouse

Percy Jackson

I am currently reading the Uglies series, but it won't take me long.

I already have Vampire Acadamy and Morganville Vampires on my with list.


What are some other "must read" YA series out there?

Mortal Instruments  by Cassantra Clare

If you like the Uglies series I would recommend looking into Midnighters by the same author. Also The Host by Stephenie Meyer is very good. I know it's not a series but it is worth reading.

I just finished the second book in the Raised by Wolves series, Trial by Fire. I recommend both after seeing others that you enjoyed. Iron Daughter, Iron King and Iron Queen are also very good.

Have you tried the a short series by Garth Nix? The first book is called "Sabriel". 2nd is "Lireal: Daughter of the Clayrs" and the 3rd one is "Abhorsen". They're thick books but an amazing series. :D I think that anyone who can read the "Harry Potter" series or books like that would definitly enjoy this series. I'm not going to get into detail because I can ramble about the series for almost an eternity and give away all the juicy details but I would recomment checking it out :D Most Definitly. :D
