The Best Young Adult Fiction Series

They make you laugh, they make you cry, and chances are, they made you read well past your bedtime. These are the best young adult fiction series ever written, as voted on by you. But while these books are all considered in the "young adult" genre, they can vary wildly in tone. YA books are a step more complex than middle grade series like The Babysitter's Club which means their protaganists are often the same age as their intended readers - 12 to 18 years of age. Some great YA collections focus on real-life drama and romance, while other fiction series for young adults are all about science fiction universes and pulse-pounding action. Many of the most popular YA book series have been adapted into big budget films.

What works will you find on this list of the best young adult fiction series? Magic, mysteries, wizardry, and adventure combine to make the Harry Potter series one of the best young adult fiction collections of all time.

In The Hunger Games series, one young woman fights for the rights of an entire population.
