As a book fan it often irritates me that people consider Harry Potter to be the best book series of all time. Of course the Harry Potter saga from JK Rowling is an interesting read and one of the finest fantasy book series of all time but in no way it is among the best book series ever. Now there would be another group of people who would consider legendary author JRR Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings to be the best book series. It indeed is among the best book series but people do not look beyond it. There are many unknown authors who published quality content and still went unrecognized in the history.
When it comes to book series then people seems to love one genre the most and it is fantasy. People love to read about dragons, fictional kingdoms, and brave kings on heroic quests. Our list too is full of fantasy book series but we also included book series of other genres.
You might get confused with the names of the book series because there are several book series that are not known by their first novel name but are actually collectively called with a different name. Such as George RR Martin’s fantasy novel series is known as ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ in book world while it is popularly known as Game of Thrones in TV world.
