My daughter loves this series. She‘s turning 10 next week. I need recommendations of other series that will keep her hooked! She also loves Harry Potter and Rick Riordan.

tessavi How about the Bartimaeus books by Jonathan Stroud? 1mo
irre @tessavi Sounds interesting. Thanks for the recommendation! 1mo

Eyelit Has she read the amulet series yet? My nephew loves it (he‘s also a fan of riordan) 1mo
irre @Eyelit She read them all and really liked them. Thanks for the suggestion. 1mo
LibrarianRyan The Unwanteds Abdul it‘s sequel series, anything Jen Carlota, sisters Grimm, land of stories, rise of the guardians series, wizard of once series, 1mo
irre @LibrarianRyan Thanks for the suggestions!! (edited) 1mo
irre @LibrarianRyan She absolutely loved The Unwanteds! Thanks! 2w
LibrarianRyan @irre yeah. Now that I‘ve slept there is also the Septimus Heap (Magyk) series, the Keepers, the Morgan crow books, York books, and of course Eragon. I‘m reading Tristan Strong right now and it is so good. 2w
LibrarianRyan @irre oh, and this may be a dark dark hole but anything Erin Hunter. The Warriors series is by far the biggest but he also has Seekers and quite a few others. Plus an amazing classic fantasy series is Redwall. It‘s like 20 books but all good. And all done. Warriors is I believe over 40 and still going. 2w
irre @LibrarianRyan Thanks! 2w
