Which popular series do you like best?

To Kill a Mockingbird was the winner of our February poll.  I will hold semifinals and finals after getting the results of my monthly polls.  I can’t wait to see what will be voted as our favorite book to read.

This month’s poll will be based on which popular series you like best.  Not sure if everyone reading this blog is a book lover, so for this poll I picked the obvious: series that have been made into movies.  Tell me which book in the series is your favorite.  This poll may seem easy, but for me it is extremely difficult. I like all the series, but I love some of the books in each of these series.  Plus, if I let movie preference cloud my judgment, that would completely change my vote.  This may come as a challenge for this poll. I will have to think long and hard before I cast my vote.

I do plan on branching out my polls to include more books that are not in the spotlight, but should be.  But I wanted to try to get these widely-known books out of the way first,  so I can then introduce some amazing books that are out there and hopefully get you some new favorites.

I also encourage everyone to leave me comments if you have a book, subject, genre, or author that you want to see on a future poll.

Which Popular Series Do You Like Best?

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, by J.R.R. Tolkien

The Twilight Saga, by Stephanie Meyer

Harry Potter, by J.K. Rowling


  1. If I have to pick one it would be Narnia... but I'm not the biggest fan of any of them. I enjoyed the movies though (besides Twilight!)

  2. This is like picking a favorite child! For me, it's between LOTR and Harry.

    I think Harry is more meaningful to me on a personal level, so I give JK my vote!

  3. Lord of the Rings, only because Tolkien spent a lifetime creating and writing about every aspect of Middle Earth: people, languages, histories, etc.

    Having said that, I must admit that Jo Rowling has done a masterful job of giving us a world that lives secretly alongside our own, one that we might catch a glimpse of out of the corner of our eye ... if we are very attentive ... and believe ...

  4. Aack. This one is hard. I'm going to say Lord of the Rings, even though Harry Potter is almost neck to neck.

    By the way, I'm finally on blogger so I can offficially follow you now! :-)

  5. I have to go with HP. They're all great for different reasons, but I think the Harry Potter series is a masterpiece.
