Hi there, I decided to make another post about recommendations but this time it’s all about book series. I actually tried to rank them (silly me) but of course that is impossible so this is basically just a list, it doesn’t matter which one is the first or last.
- LORIEN LEGACIES (Pittacus Lore)
If you’re my friend and you’re reading this, you probably expected this series to be the first one just because I’m still obsessed with it! No matter how many book you have read, you’re not mentally or physically prepared to deal with everything this series is. Do you want YA awesome action? You got it. Do you want even more action? All kinds of action? You got everything you want. Do you want superpowers? Legacies are served. Aliens? Dang right. Fictional planets? Heck yeah. Love? YESSS. Drama? You got it. Feels? No problem.
I literally postponed finishing the last book because I just didn’t want this whole thing to end. I even made a boomerang when I closed the book after reading it lol. Here’s a brief summary of it I found online, just because I’m not good at writing summaries:
“Nine small children came to Earth and they are from a planet, Lorien, and there is a war there. A brutal race of aliens, called the Mogadorians, have set their sights on the planet and are determined to conquer it. We find out that these nine kids (called the Garde), along with a guardian for each, are important for the survival of their species and so they were sent away with a charm put upon them. Each child is assigned a number, one through nine, and when the Mogadorians inevitably come, they can only be harmed in order. The Garde are meant to be the warriors and protectors of their planet, so they develop powers, known as legacies. These range from standard legacies that all Garde members have, like telekinesis, to more rare ones, like healing, invisibility, and shape-shifting.”

2. Gone (Michael Grant)
So imagine a huge dome covers the world and all the adults are being left out, all that is left are all the kids raging from newborns to teenagers that disappear at the age of 15. You get no internet, no signal, no tv. Animals are mutating, there are bullies, you might die of hunger and on top of everything, they start gaining powers! In each book you get a different tragedy that happens to them. For example, in one book a plague attacks them, in another book the light goes out so everything happens in darkness… crazy stuff like this. I really recommend reading this, I promise you it’s very catchy and awesome!
If I want romance, I check out a Colleen Hoover book. One of my favorites is definitely Slammed. The last book is not that interesting as it only recaps pretty much what happens in the first 2 but from Will’s point of view. Will and Layken will be one of my favorite couples forever and ever, and probably you’ll feel the same way too after reading the first book. If you want a unique and beautiful relationship, try this series. It also has enough drama and a lot of feels so you should grab all the towels to wipe your tears.
4. Robert Langdon (Dan Brown)
Dan Brown probably writes the smartest books I’ve ever read. Everything is a plot twist and he creates these crazy plots that are complicated but he somehow makes the reader understand everything that is going on. I love how much he talks about art and all the book references and art references just draw me into the books even more. I love the strong female characters he gets to work with. His books are worth it, at least for the knowledge you get from them.
5. Red Queen (Victoria Aveyard)
This series is so good I can’t even describe it. This world is divided by Reds and Silvers. If you’re a Red it means that you’re a peasant and the Silvers actually are the rich ones, they own all the gold and stuff like that. The main character finds herself working in the Silver elite and discovers she has a power just like the other Silvers. Besides the fact that she has to deal with everything royal and people with powers and maintaining a certain status, she also has to worry about the two princes in the kingdom. One is evil, one falls in love with her and this just doesn’t turn out well but she saves herself from any situation. This is that kind of series that gets your heart racing, especially after the first book.
I hope I helped you at least a little bit to choose your next books. I’m gonna do some more of these because I just love so many series!!
