Of course I love Harry Potter. Everyone here loves Harry Potter. But my favorite...that's a tough choice. I've always loved the Lord Of The Rings. I'm also quite fond of Tamora Pierce's Immortals series, and her (in progress) trilogy Provost's Dog. In fact, I pretty much love anything by Tamora Pierce. Favorite, though. Hmm. Does manga count? I'm rather in love with Fullmetal Alchemist. Very much in love, actually.

Hmmm.. Good question... A tie between Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings.

My favorite book is series (other than HP of course) is probably The House of Night series. Or Thirst. They're both about vampires, but they're pretty different from Twilight. I like Twilight too, but I'm not crazy obsessed, although I used to be. I also love reading anything written bu Lurlene McDaniel, though her books usually make me cry.

Harry Potter is of course in the list. There is Gossip Girl, Princess Diaries, Shopaholic, The Clique, The A-List, Twilight and the Mediator series. They are all wonderful books!!!

My favourite series are Douglas Adams's Hitchhiker's Guide books :)
I love Harry Potter, and I can't put these two series side-by-side and say which one I like best, because they're just so different so I left HP out.
Also I love some old Star Trek Original Series books, they make me feel so nostalgic.

Besides Harry Potter, I love love love the Ender series by Orson Scott Card. It's also about a boy who gets told by everyone that he is supposed to save the world. Apparently these types of books are a weakness of mine :) .

If I HAD to pick, it'd be either the Power of Five, by Anthony Horowitz or Harry Potter.

my favorite is obviously harry potter, but i have noticed that there are more book series out there nowadays. It seems to be that every book has a sequel or is a continuing storyline. Which, is ok by me as it gives me more to read, but I find my list of what I want to read grows longer and longer.

My favourite series is Discworld, by Terry Pratchett, followed by His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman. The Harry Potter series get an honourable third place in my preferences :)

Honestly, for me, there is nothing that can compare with Harry Potter. But coming in second....Lord of the Rings, and when I want to read something different, Series of Unfortunate Events. It always makes me laugh. On a related note, the WORST series ever....the Twilight Saga.

The Dragonkeeper Chronicles and the Jaz Parks series are right up there with HP. In the end, I think the Dragonkeeper Chronicles win over Jazzy but tie for HP. I love the Chronicles of Narnia as well. :3

Incidentally, the Belgariad and Malloreon are also my favorite series'. I'm surprised they're gaining in popularity again, as they're quite old. They follow a standard fantasy-genre pattern, but are littered with humor and Abbott & Costello-style exchanges that make it an absolute blast to read.

Okay, since we're doing this. My favorite book series at this very moment is Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games. I love many book series actually, but I consider my favorite one the one I'm most obsessed about at the moment. The bottom line being - expect a change in this once I find a new great and enjoyable series because it will automatically top this one (because I've already read it, and probably once I stop fangirling over the movie, it'll fall down from the throne ;) ).

Okay, so my top 5 are...

1. Harry Potter
=2 His Dark Materials
=2 The Books of Pellinor
4. The Black Magician Trilogy
5. Lord of the Rings

As you can see, I love fantasy! :D I would strongly recommend the Books of Pellinor. They're not that well known, but they are great books - full of adventure, horror and romance!
