Back when I was in junior high and high school, I have years of fond memories at my local library. I enjoyed reading something new and often picked up a new book series to read every few weeks. Because of that, I have read so many book series over the years that I’ve lost count! However, today I wanted to round up and share some popular book series for teens that have stuck with me.
Some of these recommendations are beloved classics while others are series from authors fairly new to the publishing world. But something they all have in common is intriguing storylines and memorable characters.
Whether you’re in the mood to attend a magical boarding school or are obsessed with Greek mythology, each of these book series for teens will transport you to a new world that you’ll never want to leave.
If you’re a parent shopping for your reading-obsessed teen, they’ll enjoy one of these series. And if your book-loving teen hasn’t read many book series for teens yet, I’d recommend introducing them to the classics (Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia, and The Hunger Games).

If you aren’t sure what series to start reading first, I’d recommend narrowing it down by genre.
Do you enjoy reading fantasy books? If so, I’d start with Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling, The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black, or Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.
However, if dystopian is more your favorite, I’d pick Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Giver by Lois Lowry, or The Maze Runner by James Dashner.
But if you’re a romantic at heart (and enjoy a hint of adventure), I’d choose Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, The Selection by Kiera Cass or The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare.
Hopefully using this method will help you choose a series to start reading first! Because all of these book series are amazing, regardless of what you choose, you’ll be in for a great bunch of books to read.
