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.

The perfect series I think for you based upon what you read would be the Frankenstein series by Koontz. This series is an awesome twist on the original story by Mary Shelley. Koontz presents it as though it was not fiction and continues into modern day. Not only is it gripping and tough to put down, it really gets you thinking on alot of things. Plus, the third book is finally coming out this month!

Hi Celtica - AnneB here - I agree that eam492 should try Diana Gabaldon - they are my all time favorites - as a matter of fact I am beginning a reread of them all before the next one comes out in September. Have you tried the "Into the Wilderness" series by Sara Donati? I think they are very like Outlander....Anne

Some of my favorite series are...
The Dresden files by Jim Butcher...They're fun no-brainers
The Arthurian Saga by Mary Stewart: Book 1 - The Crystal Cave
The Deed of Paksenarrion by Elizabeth Moon
I realize, of course, that it is not true logic to argue--"The world is not as we think it is--therefore everything we think impossible is possible in it." Even if it be different, it is governed by law. The truly impossible is that which is outside law, and as nothing can be outside law, the impossible cannot exist.

If you like western the Sackett's series by Louis L'amour is good. I think there's about 17 in the series about a man who comes to America to start a new life. I had never before read a western novel, and was surprised at how involved I became in the story. You can usually buy these small novels for a couple of bucks at your used bookstore. Sackett's Land is the first one I believe, and followed by To the Far Blue Mountains.
I always recommend the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. There are 15 so far in the saga of a wayward bounty hunter. They always keep me laughing. They are filled with crazy, over the top characters and tons of suspenseful action. One for the Money is the first one.
See what no one else sees. See what everyone chooses not to see...out of fear, conformity, or laziness. See the whole world anew each day.

You have to read the Odd Thomas Series. Based on some of the books you've already read I'm sure you love at as much as I do.

John Levitt -- Urban fantasy series with a lot of mystery subplot. There's this dog. But he's not really a dog, he's an ifrit. And Mason isn't sure why he's lucky enough to have Lou, the dog/ifrit. But they make a good pair, proving that dog is still man's best friend.
Ilona Andrews - good urban fantasy, more of a romantic thread through the firsts three (tension more than anything else.) Kind of a neat concept of a system of magic versus mechanical. Like thunderstorms, magic comes and goes. When magic is 'in" technology doesn't work and when technology is in, magic doesn't work. Creates great world buliding opportunities.
Look into Mercedes Lackey as well. She writes everything from fantasy to urban fantasy and I've like almost everything she's written.

Hi i was never a big reader until i read the twilight saga, which i enjoyed since then i can't stop reading you have to try J R Ward, THE BLACK DAGGER BROTHERHOOD SERIES, it is EXCELLENT, it takes one or two chapters to get into but really really worth it. It is also vampire series, and it it the most beautiful romance you can read i think. Give it a try. hope i helped

Although there are only two in this series they are worth it. I was dead set against these two (not a sci-fi fan) but really enjoyed the two.
Otherwise, I'm not much of a series person. But maybe you might want to try these which are very popular right now.
If you want to try your hand at some historical stuff Bernard Cornwell is a good choice. He has many series. His most notable being:
