(M MG M) My Top Ten Favorite MG Series

I had originally set out to come up with a list of my top ten MG books of all time, but realized that all my faves are actually a part of series, thus that list turned into this list. So, here are my Top Ten Favorite MG Series in no particular order...

Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
This magical series changed the way I (and the rest of the world) viewed MG fiction and the power of MG books. 

Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull 
This series is absolutely enchanting, super fun and addicting!

Anne of Green Gables series by L.M Montgomery  

Anne Shirley was my first bosom friend and a true kindred spirit.

The Baby-Sitters Club series by Ann M. Martin 
I devoured these books as a child and wanted so badly to be in the Baby-sitters Club!

Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis 
This series introduced me to the concept of fantasy fiction and thank Aslan for that!

A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket 

LOVE the dark, witty humor in this series!

Inkheart series by Cornelia Funke 

This series is based on such a wondrous concept!

His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman 

I'm deeply impressed by the thought-provoking nature of this series.

Anything and Everything by Judy Blume 

The Fudge series got me through elementary school!

Percy Jackson and the Olympians series & The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan...yes, I cheated and counted both series as one. 
Riordan is a true master of MG fiction!

The Baby-Sitters Club, Harry Potter, Narnia, and The Boxcar Children.

I've read the first book in the Percy Jackson series so as soon as I finish the rest maybe I'll add it to the list.

I`m with you on the Chronicles of Narnia, Anne of Green Gables and ANYTHING by Judy Blume. We must be kindred spirits, too. ;-)

I got into the Series of Unfortunate events but i never ended up finishing them. I tried to try finishing the last few books last year but I couldn't get back into them i'm not sure why. Great post!

Wow I remember reading The Babysitter's Club back then. That's too funny lol. Also back then I read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I have the complete series of Narnia and one day plan to read all of them. Harry Potter will always be my favorite. I just love that world so much.
