Star Wars books - various authors (although the last two series have been weak)
Star Wars has been weak since they kind of ran out of new ideas and just rehashed the old ones over and over.

I'll put in for Star Trek that is doing very well with very good new ideas.

I find Robert Asprin's Myth series excellent. But the Thieves' World I found awful. I could not even get past the first book it was that bad.

I've read all of the James Patterson books, but still have most of the Lee Child books to read. I plan to start reading them in between reading the freebies.

The series where I'm most looking forward to new books is the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher.
I'm also really enjoying the Hal Spacejock series by Simon Haynes right now.

Is Lord of the Rings one book, or a series?

A Song of Ice and Fire, Hyperion, and the first part of the Dune series. And the Baroque series by Stephenson. And...

We love the "Eyre Affair"/ "Lost in a good book" series by Jasper Fford. Almost makes you want to read classic literature to learn the back story of the literature characters that show up.
Oh yes, add that one to my list, too, though I found the last one to be a bit of a letdown.

Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child have a series of books featuring "Agent Pendergast" that are fun.
I am a bit behind with this series, but yes, it is quite good. The first one (Relic) was one of the very rare books that ever freaked me out.

For fans of hitmen stories, such as the Keller series by Lawrence Block, then the John Rain series by Bary Eisler is worth a read. I'm on the 6th book and have enjoyed the stories and Rain's character development.

It's a series if you include The Hobbit regardless if the other books are a series or not.

Thieves' World varies a lot with the authors in a given book. As it gets going, it gets darker. Stories in that series by Janet Morris and CJ Cherryh are some of the best fantasy I have read.
