Here are my top seven book series.
By Walter R. Brooks
When I was younger I used to love this series. It’s about a pig and other barnyard animals who can talk. Freddy is a detective, a pilot, a poet, a magician, a journalist, and many other things. These books are quite witty and clever, and though they don’t have tons of action, they make a fun read.
I don’t doubt that most of you have heard of Narnia. There are seven books in this fantasy series written by C. S. Lewis, and each one is amazing. In each book there is Aslan, the lion, who rules over Narnia. These books are fantastic, and if you’ve never read them, then you are missing out. 🙂
By L. M. Montgomery
I read the Anne series for the first time this year. Starting when Anne is adopted by Marilla and Matthew, and ending with a book from Anne’s daughter’s point of view, this series is full of fun adventures. It made me laugh when Anne’s friends thought she drowned while pretending to be a river maiden, and the antics of her children were quite fun to read about.
By J. R. R. Tolkien
The Lord of the Rings is another series I hadn’t read until this year. While this book has lots of verse and poem in it, which I’m not a fan of in books, it’s definitely a great read. I love Tolkien’s style of writing and the fantasy world of Middle Earth that he has created in this trilogy.
By Brian Jacques
There are about twenty books in the Redwall series. The gist of the books is woodland creatures fighting against sea rats and other evil vermin to reclaim land or to escape evil clutches. I can’t really describe the whole series that well, but I really enjoy it. I’ve read around five of the twenty-two very thick novels. If you like this sort of book, the Redwall series will keep you going for quite a while.
By Jeanne Birdsall
This series about four siblings and their adventures, trials, and joys is a great read. Jeanne Birdsall has written five Penderwick books, and she plans on writing one more. Batty, the youngest, is a musician and a lover of animals. Jane is a writer and a dreamer. Skye is extremely smart with a bit of a temper, and Rosalind is the oldest who acts as a mother to her siblings.
By Trenton Lee Stewart
And finally -you guessed it- The Mysterious Benedict Society! I am a huge fan of these books. They are not only my favorite book series, but my favorite all-around books. The author’s way of writing doesn’t make it seem like it’s supposed to be a children’s book, but it is still very clear and understandable. In the three books the children must tackle many riddles and puzzles to succeed their missions.
You can click on the pictures of the book covers to see them on Amazon.com. 😉
