So you prefer a good fantasy series over just one book?

A Listmania! list by Donna Y (Philadelphia, PA)
The list author says: "I can read a 300 page book in one day easily, and with an addiction like that I need long series to keep me occupied. Why spend all this time getting to know and love characters, if they are only in your life for a few pages?"

1.  The Wheel of Time, Boxed Set I, Books 1-3: The Eye of the World, The Great Hunt, The Dragon Reborn by Robert Jordan

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1)
2.  A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1) by George R. R. Martin
The list author says:
  "WOW! Just WOW!  I tried to read this when it first came out years ago, and the first chapter scared me so bad I returned the book. lol, I had thought the whole book was going to be a scary dark horror novel.  I am glad a friend re-recommended it to me, I have fallen in love!"

Mistborn: The Final Empire (Book No. 1)
3.  Mistborn: The Final Empire (Book No. 1) by Brandon Sanderson
The list author says:
  "Yes it is a trilogy...  But we get to spend plenty of time with the characters, watching them grow and progress, undergoing real change.  Not a book I could read in a day because it would be a real cheat to the quality of writing."

The Sword of Truth, Boxed Set I, Books 1-3: Wizard's First Rule, Blood of the Fold ,Stone of Tears
5.  The Sword of Truth, Boxed Set I, Books 1-3: Wizard's First Rule, Blood of the Fold ,Stone of Tears by Terry Goodkind
The list author says:
  "I read up to the Temple of the Winds until I realized that all these books follow the same format.  Something interesting happens in the beginning of the story, nothing interesting happens for a long time, meanwhile the story line builds up for something absolutely spectacular to happen, but then, we reach the climatic end....  And Pssff..."
$19.28   Used & New from: $10.94

Guilty Pleasures (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter)
6.  Guilty Pleasures (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter) by Laurell K. Hamilton
The list author says:
  "This falls more within the vampire-themed fantasy, and it takes place in our modern world.  But either you like vampires or not, if you do read up to book 7.  Then, if you like erotica, forget you are reading a vampire series, and read books 8 and beyond."
$12.02   Used & New from: $0.01
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (777 customer reviews) | 5 customer discussions

Twilight (The Twilight Saga, Book 1)
7.  Twilight (The Twilight Saga, Book 1) by Stephenie Meyer
The list author says:
  "How did I end up reading this?  By mistake!  I would never have gone out to read such a thing, but I was recovering from the disappointment of the Anita Blake series.  I also got the first book for free.  It is a good read, a little whiny and uneventful, but if you like vampire novels, you could get this one down."

9.  Harry Potter Paperback Box Set (Books 1-7) by J. K. Rowling
