Book series recommendations?

Not Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings. I am not really into fantasy books or crime books. I am really not into detective books. Also, not the heavy romance ones where they meet in a school and the boy/girl is mysterious or something. I want something more mature. Also nothing heavy on supernatural type things. Any suggestions?

    What about Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings? They're super. Everyone likes those. Fact.

    I saw your question, was distracted by the coffee machine, then kept brainstorming and came up with a couple of suggestions.

    Then I realized that you were asking for book SERIES.

    The thing is that many series are in genres that you exclude.

    What's left is historical novels even though they also often come as stand-alones, science fiction, and not much else. Maybe some thriller series.

    Is that what you're looking for?

    I'll go ahead and give you some suggestions, most of which aren't series. Maybe you'll find some of them useful anyway:

    - Stieg Larsson's Millennium series

    - Ken Follett: The Pillars of the Earth

    - Noah Gordon: The Physician

    - Donna W. Cross: Pope Joan

    - Jonas Jonasson: The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared

    - Stephen King: Misery

    - Peter S. Beagle: A Fine and Private Place

    It would help to know what you ARE interested in. I read my way through the books by James Michener and the historical fiction books by Kenneth Roberts when I was in high school. Later, I came to appreciate Jane Austen, Willa Cather and Edith Wharton.
