Oh and I almost forgot what I consider to be by far the best series of books about Ancient Rome I ever read: the "Masters of Rome" series by Colleen McCullough.

Now I cannot read any other book about that era without comparing it to McCullough's books and the other book never quite measures up...

My favorite series are the ones where the individual books have absolutely nothing to do with each other.
Not the same person in each book..
Marion Simmer Bradley ( Darkover Series)
Christine Feeham ( Dark Series)
Karen Moning (Highlander Series) My favorite for comfort reading!
Anne McCaffrey (Dragon Riders of Pern)

Diana Gabaldon (Outlander)
J.D. Robb (In Death Series)
Terry Brooks (Word & Void)
Thanks to all who posted! I see a lot of series I've read and need to revisit. And many new ones that I will try.

I haven't been able to get through many series because if the first book doesn't grab me enough, I usually end it there. Perhaps I'm sorting through the wrong series as I see some here that I've looked up and they sound fascinating.

Some of the ones I have read are:

Harry Potter (I had no problem getting through this series)
Percy Jackson
Narnia
Hush Hush (Need to read the final book, so I haven't quite completed this one yet)
The Mortal Instruments (The first four books - it lost me after that)
Perfect Chemistry (on the last book - not going great)
Noughts and Crosses (great series)
The Hunger Games (wasn't for me)
Twilight (was addictive the first time round but not planning to read them again)

Ditto. I've also read all the books by Brian Herbert & Kevin J Anderson. I can't say they give me a great deal of pleasure, but I don't seem to be able to give them up. The Dune Encyclopedia, on the other hand, is a great read.

I tried really hard to think of a non - romance series and only managed to think of two.

Lord of the Rings - JRR Tolkien
The Chronicles of Narnia - C.S. Lewis

Never read Harry Potter because my kids drove me crazy watching the movies at least once a day.

I narrowed it down to the top 4 for romance.

Outlander - Diana Gabaldon
Dark Hunter Series - Sherrilynn Kenyon
Dark Series - Christine Feehan
Dark Sword Series - Donna Grant

The Company Wars series, C.J. Cherryh.
The Dying Earth series, Jack Vance.
The Morgaine cycle, C.J. Cherryh.

I wish more of Cherryh's work was available as e-books!

After sleeping on it I remembered another good series. So sad I forgot it. Although I haven't read the last two books in the series.

Earth's Children - Jean M Auel

This series took me away from the mystery/thrillers phase of my life and eventually brought me to my Historical Romance phase.

Stargirl is among my favorites. For teen girls it's one of the most beautiful books they could come across.

I also quite enjoyed 'The Series of Unfortunate Events' books. I read them when I was in fourth grade and then again later in life. I wasn't the biggest fan of the movie (but I think all readers have that problem).
