There are so many book series out there (too many. I will never read them all!), but which one is the best? This post will try to convince you why every one of these nominees deserves to win.
Warning: Slight shipping spoiler for Percy Jackson and the Olympians.
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
Well, do I even have to explain this one? These books are so important to an entire generation and I believe they will be for future generations as well. For so many people in the world these books are not just an escape, but an inspiration. Harry, Ron, Hermione and all the others are our friends. The Wizarding World is our world. Hogwarts will always be our home.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan
Sassy protagonist? Check. Awesome adventures? Check. Greek mythology? Check. Great friendships? Check. All the feels? (though not so much as the next one). Check.
If you haven’t read this series yet, go do it now. And then read the next nominee. Because once you read this series, you’ll want more.
Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan
The sequel series to Percy Jackson and the Olympians, with more POVs, more Percabeth, more Nico and new characters to fall in love with. Some people might tell you that the original is better, but I love them equally. A lot of people may have found Blood of Olympus a bit disappointing (and I do understand why, though I loved it), but that doesn’t take the awesomeness of this series away!
The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
I haven’t read this series (yet), so I can’t tell you why this series deserves to win, but Taile from Twist in the Taile can!
‘It’s beautifully written and there’s so much beyond the text to dive into; maybe this is repeated a lot, but the characters really do jump off the page. The books are a little pretentious but their style is so unique and hooking that I think I’ll forgive them that.’
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
Another series I haven’t read, thankfully Kayleigh from Miserable and Magical has, and she told me why she thinks Outlander deserves to win: ‘It’s such a good book filled with Scottish history and adventure. The characters are so well written and the story is a page turner … Although I found it to be a slow start I couldn’t put the book down once I got into it. The characters are so well written you can’t help but love and hate them.’
