Popular young adult book series?

I'm going to go book-shopping-crazy tomorrow at a book warehouse, and I need some good book series to buy.

I'm sorry that I've posted a couple of questions like this, it's just that I've totally run out of books to read.

What I've read:

Twilight Series

Maximum Ride Series

Eragon Series

Chronicles of Narnia

Underland Chronicles

Harry Potter Series

Artemis Fowl Series

City of Ember Series...

Shadow Children Series

Uglies series....

A Great and Terrible Beauty series..

Private Series

The Hunger Games (soon-to-be-trilogy)

I like to read series books, so please only recommend books with at least three books in the series. BIG books, like at least four hundred pages in each book.

I don't mind if there are sex scenes or anything, but I'm looking for more young-adult like books.

Also, I want a book series that actiony, mysterious, adventurous, fantasy, and romancy. And sorta on the popular book series list, so I can talk to people about it.

Please don't say the Pendragon series/Series of Unfortunate Events/Inkheart series/Clique series because I hated those books... It would be great if they weren't all vampire books, too. I've had enough vampires books for a lifetime.

Sorry for being so picky!

    Have you read The Dark is Rising series by Susan Cooper?


    How about The Seventh Tower series by Garth Nix?


    Or the Old Kingdom series, also by Garth Nix?


    Maybe The Circle of Magic series by Tamora Pierce?


    I'll be back . .

    Okay, here's a site with about five or six series and plot summaries http://teenreads.com/series/index.asp

    The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier is a really good one. It's not part of a series, but it does have a sequel titled Beyond the Chocolate War.


    Last but not least, this is a really good classic series. It isn't fantasy, but it's really good. The Anne of Green Gables books by L M Montgomery, there are eight of them.


    I hope you find some books that you like.

    Dragonspell and sequels Donita K. Paul

    The Dark is Rising Sequence Susan Cooper (so much better than the movie)

    The Secret Circle Trilogy, Forbidden Game Trilogy and Dark Visions Trilogy all by L J Smith (no vampires, but she wrote other books with vampires)

    The Rover and sequels Mel Odom

    Solstice Wood by Patricia McKillip

    The Xanth series by Piers Anthony This is not a YA series and has more innuendo than actual sex scenes. Pun filled.

    Try: The Mortal Instruments Series

    The first two are called: City of Bones and City of Ashes, the third one, City of Glass, comes out in March 2009. There are vampires in the book, but that's not the basis of the story.

    Im big fans of most series you wrote. I also like "the face on the milk carton". there are i think 5 books, but they're olny around 200 pages each and the titles are dumb, but the books are good. The print is small... it's mostly mystery aand romance.
