A book series is defined as a sequence of books that have certain characteristics in common, like a setting, story arc, or cast of characters. Some books in a series can be read in any order as there are minimal references to past events, while others should be read in chronological order to be better understood.

Much like a hit television series, a good book series should have entertaining characters and a gripping plot development to keep you coming back for more.

Check out our suggestions in a slide show below. Are you a fan of a series not mentioned here? Tell us all about it in the comments section!

    i have read, followed and is following 11 out of your 20 must-follow book series. not bad. my added recommendation for must-follow book series: vampire academy by richelle mead (if you haven't gotten over the twilight series and is craving for more vampire teens), southern vampire mysteries novels aka sookie stackhouse series (if you want an adult version of the twilight series), inheritance cycle by christopher paolini (if you love dragons and want to learn about dragon riders), inkheart trilogy by cornelia funke (i love books), the pendragon adventure by d j machale (currently reading, i'm in book 3 and so far i've enjoyed his travels to denduron and cloral, bobby pendragon is a traveler out to save halla from saint dane).
