Okay, I've enjoyed lots of books. But the two series that I first read and fell in love with are the Alex Rider series and the Harry Potter series. I started both of these series when I was quite young. I loved the action in the Alex Rider series.
I don't know what it is I love about the Harry Potter series. It's just... everything. It was a whole new magical world. The storyline and characters had me captivated. I genuinely cared for the characters. I cried and laughed throughout the series and was shocked by twists and turns. I grew up with this series and waited at midnight to get it! It will always be a series with a special place in my heart. Children everywhere do owe JK Rowling a lot.
But my question is, I've read and enjoyed these books, I wanted to know if anyone can recommend something that is similar? Not necessarily in storyline but something that will compete for the top spot as my favourite book series? And just a quick question for anyone who has read the Lord of the Rings series, what are the orders of the books because I'm not sure if the Hobbit is related? And is the series by J.R.R. Tolkien any good?
