Top 10 Best Book Series of All Time

Apr 1, 2023 | Book Lists | 0 comments

I love to read book series. A book series allows you to dive deeper into the fictional world and learn more about the characters the writer creates. I enjoy returning to characters and places I already know and have begun to miss.

But, it can take some time to find book series worth reading. That’s why I’ve compiled this 10 epic must-reads best book series list to make your life easier.

Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan

best book series

There are three major gods in Greek mythology. They are the most powerful gods of Olympus. The three major gods are Hades – the ruler of the underworld; Poseidon – the ruler of the sea; and Zeus – the ruler of the sky. 

There is a prophecy that once a child of the Big Three Gods, turns 16, he/she will make a choice that will either raise the world to great heights or destroy it completely.

So, Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades agreed that they won’t sire any children for the sake of the world.

Long story short, it was later found that Poseidon had broken the auth and had a child with a mortal. And that kid’s name is Percy Jackson.

The mere existence of Percy angered the gods because it meant that Poseidon had broken his oath. On top of that, someone had stolen the lightning bolt, the royal weapon of Zeus. Now, Percy must go to the underworld on a quest to retrieve the lightning bolt and stop the war between Zeus and Poseidon. 

Who stole Zeus’s weapon? Why did Poseidon break the oath? Will our hero be able to find the lightning bolt and stop a war between gods? To find answers to these questions, you have to read the first book of Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, The Lightning Thief. If you are into Greek mythology this series is a MUST-read.

Hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy by Douglas Adams

One of the funniest books I’ve ever read. The book is basically about a guy on a road trip across the universe and its paradoxes.

The story follows the adventures of a human named Arthur Dent, who is rescued from the destruction of Earth by an alien named Ford Prefect, just seconds before the planet is demolished to make an intergalactic highway.

From there, the duo embarks on a wild adventure that takes them across the galaxy and beyond.

Throughout the story, Adams employs his unique brand of humor and satire to poke fun at a variety of targets, including bureaucracy, religion, and the media.

Along the way, Arthur struggles to come to terms with the loss of his home planet and the bewildering nature of the universe, while Ford remains perpetually blasé about the absurdity of it all.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is a book that will have you laughing out loud one moment and contemplating the meaning of life the next.

Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy

Meet Skulduggery Pleasant. A detective, a magician, and a warrior.
Oh did I mention that he’s also dead?

Stephanie always loved spending time with her Uncle Gordan. So, when she later finds that her uncle has died, she is heartbroken.

Uncle Gordan had left her something and Stephanie has to go to the reading of the will. A few minutes into the reading, she finds herself being drawn to the mysterious, evasive, and alluring Skulduggery Pleasant.

Skulduggery shows her a new world, a world of magic, mystery, and danger. And so the adventure begins. From dealing with ghosts and demons to fighting off evil sorcerers, Skulduggery and Stephanie are always up for an adventure.

I absolutely enjoyed reading this book. The author did a great job of making the book dark, suspenseful, and exciting. What else could you ask for?

The Skullduggery series consists of 9 books, and I can recommend this book series to anyone who likes magic, mystery, and dry humor.

Robert Langdon Series by Dan Brown

A wonderful series of thrillers set in exotic locations, with wonderful plots and unexpected twists. (Believe me, this series has some of the BEST plot twists I’ve ever read)

Meet Robert Langdon, a Harvard Professor of Art and History, with a specialization in Ancient Symbology. He finds himself in crime-solving situations that threaten to have a global impact in one way or another.

The main theme in his book is the never-ending war between science & religion.

The magic of Brown’s novel is the weaving of an excellent fictional plot with the places of the real world. He creates fiction stories from historical figures, artifacts, scientific facts, and mythological figures.

Dan Brown’s books often deal with controversial and thought-provoking themes, like the brotherhood of the Illuminati, the Freemasons, and secrets of the catholic church, which can spark a wide range of conspiracy theories. If you are into conspiracy theories this series is a must-read.

Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle

It’s no wonder why the Sherlock Holmes book series is considered by many to be the best detective series ever written.

The series follows the adventures of the brilliant detective, Sherlock Holmes, and his partner, Dr. John Watson, as they solve complex cases in Victorian-era London.

From the bustling streets of London to the misty moors of Dartmoor, the Sherlock Holmes series takes readers on a journey through some of England’s most iconic locations. And with each new location comes a new mystery to solve, each one more challenging than the last.

The series has something for everyone, from action-packed adventures to quiet and reflective stories. Readers will be amazed at the different ways Holmes manages to solve cases, and each story has a unique twist that keeps the reader guessing until the very end.

A series of unfortunate events by Lemony Snicket

If you are interested in happy endings, you would be better off reading some other book. In this book, not only is there no happy ending, there is no happy beginning and very few happy things in the middle. 

These stories follow the horrible misadventures of the three Baudelaire orphans, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny. All three children are dealt a horrible blow when, one day, they’re told their parents perished in a mysterious house fire. The series is about their struggles to survive and uncover the truth behind their parents’ deaths.

Overall, if you’re looking for a good laugh and don’t mind a healthy dose of despair, then “A Series of Unfortunate Events” is the book series for you. This is the perfect combination of darkness and humor. Just don’t blame me if you find yourself laughing at the misfortune of some unfortunate children.

Rendezvous with Rama by Arthur C. Clarke

In this vast Universe with trillions of stars, which have existed for billions of years, are we the only ones alive? If not, where are the others? Why aren’t they contacting us? Are we all alone in this Universe? If you have ever had these kinds of thoughts, then you are going to love the Rama book series. On of the best Sci-Fi book series I’ve ever read.

The book series also talks about human nature in depth. As you read this series you will realize that humans are not the perfect creatures we keep hoping ourselves to be. The fundamental nature of humans is much darker and sinister, just as low as the mindless animals in a jungle. 

This story may make you dislike or even hate humans, and it sure makes you ponder some heavy philosophical questions, but it has many fun parts too. 

I guarantee that you can expect to experience rebels trying to overthrow a cruel dictator, epic wars between humans, never seen civilizations of extra-terrestrials, and even love stories that exceed the laws of time and space. This is a must-read for any Sci-Fi lover.

Witcher Series by Andrzej Sapkowski

The Witcher book series by Andrzej Sapkowski is an epic fantasy saga that follows the adventures of Geralt of Rivia, a mercenary who is part of a guild of hunters known as witches, who have developed supernatural abilities to battle beasts and slay monsters in return for coin.

Geralt is a simple yet complicated man and lives in the grey area between the world of humans and the world of monsters belonging to neither.

The books are set in a world of magic and monsters, where Geralt must use his wit and strength to survive. The series is full of moral dilemmas and difficult choices that Geralt must make in order to survive.

Divergent by Veronica Roth

Set in a dystopian Chicago, the series follows the story of 16-year-old Beatrice Prior, who must choose between five factions that represent different virtues: Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the kind), Erudite (the intelligent), Abnegation (the selfless), and Candor (the honest)

Everyone when they turn 16 must choose a new faction, or remain in the one they have been raised in.

Now there’s an aptitude test, and it will return which faction you are most suitable for.

After she takes the test, Beatrice discovers that she does not belong to one faction. Her results say that she could be in Erudite, Abnegation, or Dauntless. This means that Beatrice is Divergent.

Being Divergent is dangerous, and Beatrice must hide her secret from the government.

As she embarks on a thrilling journey to uncover the dark secrets of the factions and protect herself from those who seek to harm her for being a Divergent, Beatrice discovers that there is more to life beyond the chain-link fence that encloses Chicago. With mind-blowing plot twists and unexpected turns, the trilogy is a perfect blend of science fiction, dystopia, romance, and action.

The Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling

No list of must-read book series would be complete without mentioning Harry Potter.

Join Harry, Ron, and Hermione as they attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and fight against the dark forces. This series is a timeless classic that will continue to captivate readers for generations to come.
