What are some good action/adventure book series?

I already read other popular action/adventure book series such as:

Harry Potter

Hunger Games

Percy Jackson


I didn't read twilight because it's more about romance and fantasy. Don't get me wrong I really like fantasy but I'm not a fan of romance. And don't recommend the Lord of The Rings series. I tried reading it, but it is so hard to understand because it's old English. But I LOVE the movies.

So all I really want is a book series that is action/adventure, really entertaining and hard to put down. Any recommendations?

    If you'd like a series, I recommend the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld. I really loved the concept of these novels. I was definitely intrigued and couldn't put the book down. Westerfeld creates a fictional world full of intricate mystery, adventure, and suspense. I really loved the main character, Tally. It was so interesting to watch as her whole mindset is questioned. I would recommend this series as a quick but awesome read (however, I did not completely enjoy the fourth and final book which takes place after the main story is wrapped up).

    The Lord of the Rings is not old english. Beowulf is old english (actually, you should read Beowulf - a modern english translation of course, fantastic story). I agree, The Lord of the Rings is very involved, but it is soooo rewarding! I suggest you try and tackle that. In fact, I suggest you watch the movies and then read the books. I know, you're not supposed to do that or whatever, but it really helps in understanding the complex plot lines and characters. Then after you've read the books, watch the movies again.

    On another note, the Dark is Rising series are fantastic. So are the Chronicles of Prydain series.
