Book Series Recommendations

So today I thought I would post something a little different...
My Top 3 Series Recommendations!

I will be putting down the summary of the first book in each series, and will be writing a quick reason why you should read them!
All these books will be Young Adult.

1 The Mortal Intruments series by Cassandra Clare

Goodreads summary:

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder― much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing―not even a smear of blood―to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It's also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace's world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know... 

This series is one of the best I have read ever. This series consists of 6 books and all of them are amazing! Throughout each book I got attached to the characters, and that to me is an important quality in a novel.
This series is very popular throughout the Young Adult genre and should find that most people love this series.
I Definitaly recommend this series, it's set in a great world, you won't regret it!

2  Divergent by Veronica Roth

Goodreads summary:

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue--Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is--she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are--and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, Tris also learns that her secret might help her save the ones she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

This series has massive hype, you probably have heard about this series before, if not read them. This series consists of 3 books, Divergent, Insurgent and Allegiant.
This book is based in a dystopian world, which is one of my favorite things to read about.
If you are a beginner to Young Adult books I would definitley recommend this one to you, it will be a great start to your new love of books.
This series was the one that brought me back to reading! :p
Please read these books!!! They are amazing!

3  Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

 Goodreads summary:

St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school—it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s—the very place where they’re most in danger. . . .

Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever.

This series is AMAZING! I cannot get enough of these books. Honestly you all should definitely read them! This series consists of 6 books and they are all such great reads! 
Oh and by the way, don't let the title fool you, I know it's quite cheesy but the book makes up for it.
Also IGNORE the cover! I honestly dislike the covers but please don't judge them for that, the story is good and I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!
Please read these books they are so good and they will not disappoint.

I hope these book recommendations helped and I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did! :p

Happy reading everyone!
