Hey everyone. I'm looking for a new series to read, and would love some suggestions. Here are a few series I have read and enjoyed, in no particular order:
- The Dark Tower - Stephen King
- A Song of Ice and Fire - George R. R. Martin
- Inheritance Cycle - Christopher Paolini
- Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling
- Twilight - Stephenie Meyer
- His Dark Materials - Philip Pullman
- Hannibal Lecter - Thomas Harris
- Foundation novels - Isaac Asimov
It looks like I read more sci-fi/fantasy, but I really like everything, there just tend to be more popular sci-fi/fantasy series haha.

We have a thread here that some of us have been posting to with ideas for series to read. The thread is called Epic Mystery/Adventure Fantasy Books Suggestions. We have been reading shorter series like Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn series.
I don't know if you are looking for young adult books or adult books. In the adult books you may also like to look into Raymond Fiest. He has a, well 2, world(s) that he has built and his stories take place in. I started in the beginning with the Rift wars and just fell in love with the world and the people as they grew and had children. They are very good books also. In young adult books we even talked about reading the Compass and the books there. I have not read it yet but it does seem like a good series from what others have said.
But, again welcome to the sight and hope to see you around.
