As you can see there are some titles between brackets. It means that they belong to a saga, that is indicated with the dark red color. 
Have you ever listened one of those books? I'm sure you would do that. They are really famous. Probably, because they're awesome novels that brings you to another time in another place while you're reading them. I recommend all of her books because in my opinion they're amazing, funny and exciting ways to have a great time. Finally, I want to say about Laura that is a brilliant writer, a good-person that always answer yours letters whit her handwriting and that I really hope she still writing. With her books I learnt a lot of values.
Memories of Idhun is the most famous of her novels. It's a trilogy that she started writing in 2004  and she finished in 2006 . It's has 2276 pages(Yes, I sum them)! It has become as popular as there are some comics, diaries and also a table game from it. I  read this amazing trilogy a few time ago and I found it really exciting, opressive and unexpected. 
It's about two teenagers,Victoria and Jack, that lived calmly until an assesin with two years more than them start going behind them. He's called Kirtash. But, fortunatly a wizard ( Shail) and a prince (Alsan) saved them and they told them that in one way or another they belong to Idhun, the world with three suns and three moons. A world where the magic exist and it's given by wonderful creatures like unicorns , where dragons fly in the sky and different races lived together in armony. Is it always the same? No, it isn't. A dark wizard called Ahsran has opnened a portal and the sheeks( snakes with wings) have returned to Idhun. He also killed all the unicorns and dragons except one of each one that was saved in the Earth, waiting for return to Idhun and destroy Ashran as the six gods have said. But what is the paper of Victoria and Jack in it? And why does the mysterious Kirtash want to killed them?
If you want to know the answer of those questions, you must read this trilogy and go along with Jack and Victoria in the dangerous travel of the true. 

 In the left side, you can see the three covers of the books. But you can also find them divided in several parts. Here's is a link where you can see the differents comic of this trilogy that are published, as the books, by the publishing house SM:
MdI ' s comics

There is also another link about a web from 'launáticos' ( Laura Gallego's fan) for 'launáticos'. I really enjoy this page because almost for me it's very interesting and useful:

Finally, I put a song that a character in MdI sings .
