Growing up, books were my only solace. It was my way to unwind after a long, hard day. Being a rather reserved person, reading books was one of the very few things that I could find pleasure in. Since I was a child, my favorite kinds of books were thriller and science fiction novels (although if asked now, I might answer very differently, guess someone’s growing up!). But to this day I think fantasy and science fiction books are the best way to pass your time. My childhood was filled with different kinds of fantasy series. I always prefer series of books rather than just one book. This way, we have so much more to look forward to! Here are some of the fantasy/science fiction series that are bound to take place in your favorite list, especially if you’re beginner:
1Harry Potter Series
You probably saw this coming. But being a potterhead since forever I cannot leave this one out. All the seven books of this series are absolute delight. They will reach out to your heart in ways that you wouldn’t even imagine. It will teach you about life, love, family and friendship.
2The Chronicles of Narnia
The mysterious land of Narnia and the four siblings ruling over the foreign land. Personally I think this is appropriate for younger readers. But nonetheless, a classic series you must keep in your list.
3The Hunger Games
It is a three book adventure/science fiction series written by Suzanne Collins. Two of which are now major motion pictures. Set in the Hunger Games universe, a young girl fights for freedom from the Capitol. Katniss Everdeen, one of the main characters of the series, will definitely take a place in your heart.
This trilogy is based on the futuristic world where the world is divided between factions. Beatrice Prior, the main character, finds out that she’s a divergent and slowly starts to unravel the mysteries. A must read for the fantasy lovers.
5The Maze Runner
This post-apocalyptic science fiction pentalogy tells a story of boy named Thomas who is deposited in a community full of boys in a maze. Like the others, he has no memory of his past. He has to work around the maze and find a way out. Another thrilling series to take space on your list.
