Harry Potter obviously, and I adore Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events. I've read the first Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants book and loved it so I'm going to look for the sequels. Other than these few, I don't really read series a lot - I tend to read standalone books, but I do stick to one author for awhile if I find a book by them that I absolutely love.

I used to love The Babysitters' Club, but I haven't read them since I was 12 or so. :P

Okay, well, of course I love the Harry Potter series but that is tied first place or may even be a close second to the Song of the Lioness series by Tamora Pierce. I read them once and I just fell in love with them. The plot was great, the writing amazing, yeah, I loved them :P I've read plenty of other series' that are very good but these two would have to be my favourites ^.^

I recently, well a year ago, started an older series but new to me that I just love. It is "The Wheel of time". I really am enjoying the characters and story lines. One thing though that I enjoyed about the Harry Potter books that makes them a close tie to my favorite was the new world J.K. Rowling developed. I enjoy learning the different detail foods, candy, spells, ect.

Besides Harry Potter, my favorite book series--for now--are Darren Shan's Saga and Bartimaeus Trilogy, I guess. :P

HARRY POTTER!!!!! :lol:

For me, nothing can compare Harry Potter. It's too magic. I also like Lord of the Rings series and Sookie Stackhouse series.

HARRY POTTER FOR SURE! Haha, it's too magical and great, I read them like 20 times... Ah, I love it too much and yes, I believe there's no one compares Harry Potter. I learned about spells, the foods, love, friendship, and all because of Harry Potter Series...

Of course the Harry Potter series are my favorite books or else I wouldn't be here right now!
Besides Harry Potter, I really like the Inheritance Series (Eragon), the Wicked Series, and The Giver Books. All are fantastic books and ones that I highly recommend!

Besides HP, that are one of my favourites, I've read almost all of Nicholas Sparks :) If you like romantic books, then you should definetly read: The Last Song, The Notebook, Message in a bottle. My top 3 of Nicholas Sparks :D

Harry Potter is one of them of course. I also like The Empire Trilogy by Raymond E Feist and Janny Wurts, the trilogy is part of Feist's larger Riftwar Saga series. There's the classic Oz series, though I haven't read all of them. The Fear Street Saga by RL Stine (there's a trilogy: The Betrayal, The Secret, and The Burning) is one of my oldest favorites. I like several series within the Star Wars expanded universe; mainly The Thrawn Trilogy, the X-Wing series, and most of the Jedi Apprentice series. Lastly the Sword of Truth Series by Terry Goodkind and for a more loose series (they're stand alones, but fit together) Phillipa Gregory's Tudor books; The Other Boleyn Girl, The Queen's Fool, etc.

I also like the Vampire Chronicles, though I've only read Interview with the Vampire and The Vampire Lestat; and the Anne of Green Gables series, which I haven't quite finished.
A newer series that I may end up liking is The Imager Portfolio, as I really enjoyed the first book Imager, but I haven't gotten the 2nd book yet.

My favourite book series is definately the Monkeewrench books by PJ Tracy. I love good murder novels, and following characters through different books. With PJ Tracy I love the mix of gory murders, hardworking detectives and their lines of work, and the romance/ jokey side of the relationships. They're just so good :D Plus, I love the Spooks apprentice books by Joseph Delanely. Haven't read those in a while though!!!

My favorite series, besides HP is "The Dark Tower" by Stephen King. I also like LotR, Magic Tree House (laugh all you like xD) and The Discworld series by Terry Pratchett.

Aww, I wouldn't laugh at you over the treehouse books; I like them too, but am too cowardly to admit it in RL.
