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).
Yep, there hasn't been a movie based on a book that can really compare to the book itself I don't think. The imagination of the reader is so much more vivid than any special effect can be and since 1 page of script = one minute of film time if they included everything from a book, like for example 'Gone With The Wind' in the screenplay not only would it probably cost far to much to make but it would take far too long to watch it.

The recent Life of Pi movie might be the exception to "the movie is never as good as the book." At least for me, the scenes in the movie were incredibly close to the scenes I imagined as I was reading the book.

Henning Mankell - Kurt Wallander
Kathy Reichs - Temperance Brennan
Lee Child - Jack Reacher
Patricia Cornwell - Kay Scarpetta
Tess Gerritsen - Rizzoli & Isles
Peter May - Lewis Trilogy
Stieg Larsson - Millennium Trilogy

Series that I've only read a couple of books from but like and will aim to read more of:

Christopher Brookmyre - Jack Parlabane
James Patterson - Alex Cross
Jo Nesbo - Harry Hole
Ken McClure - Dr Dunbar
Ian Rankin - Inspector Rebus
Karin Slaughter books featuring Will Trent

Stephen King's The Dark Tower is probably the first series I ever read (apart from kids books), but after reading the first four I've never tried to get back into the series since reading them in the 1990's, as I don't think I'd enjoy them the same now.

It's not actually a trilogy. Larsson died before he could complete the next book and his girlfriend is not allowed to finish it in his stead.

I've read three books from that series. Which one wasn't complete?

The three books are complete. There were to be more books in the series.

Interesting, I never knew that either. Millennium series then, which sadly ended up only as a trilogy.

Yep, dying will certainly jack up a series. I remember thinking prior to the last Harry Potter book being published that I would be very bummed if Rowling would have keeled over and not finished the series.

Yes, I got my fix of Harry Potter via fanfictions while waiting for each of the 7 canon books.

Inspector Gamache (by Louise Penny) I finished the entire series a few weeks back and thoroughly enjoyed them.

My Recommendation for best series:
The Mary Russell books by Laurie R King
The Marcus Didius Falco series by Lindsey Davis
The Saxons Chronicles by Bernard Cornwell
The Black Daggerhood Brothers series by J. R. Ward
Sebastian St. Cyr Mysteries by C S Harris
The Welsh Trilogy by Sharon K. Penman
