Top Ten Tuesday- Top Ten Books for Fantasy Fans

When I read the prompt for this week I knew exactly what I’d recommend- Fantasy books. I’ve read fantasy since I was a wee childΒ (started with the Dragonlance Chronicles). I had trouble limiting my fantasy recs and honestly, I can’t really say these are the BEST but I adore them each and every one.

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke an the Bookish. Each week a different question is posed and gives us bloggers an opportunity to share our top tens on all different types of bookish topics.

Books for Fantasy Fans


I’ve reviewed a good amount of these on this blog so I’ll link to either my review or Goodreads if I’ve not reviewed the book.

Which have you read and what would you add to my list of great fantasy reads?

    I have tried to mistborn twice now and I just cannot get through it – which is upsetting. But The Winner’s Trio is prob my favourite fantasy series of all time (not including Harry Potter), it’s amazing really. Thanks for the list.

  2. says

    We share A Game of Thrones on our list. It’s great to see how we have such a differing list despite having the same topic. So much fantasy to choose from.

    Fantastic list! I love the Throne of Glass series, The Grisha Series, Game of Thrones series, and I want to read all of the other ones. I have to say I’m the only person that didn’t like A Darker Shade of Magic though. I had to DNF it. :X

  4. says

    I agree with A Darker Shade of Magic and Shadow and Bone. The world building is amazing and the magic rules that bind them really fleshed out.

    I did fantasy this week too! I also listed Throne of Glass and A Darker Shade of Magic – they are definitely a couple of the best fantasy series’ I’ve read yet. The Bone Season and Mistborn are a couple of my friend’s favourite books so I think I’ll have to add them to my TBR. I really want to read Rebel of the Sands because I’ve heard so much about it. I don’t know if I’ll ever read Game of Thrones though, it seems a little heavy (both in terms of content and physically – those books are huge!)

    Melina Marchetta? I would totally add the Lumatere Chronicles to the list, ha, but I’m biased, of course. Otherwise, a fabulous selection. I’m excited to see where Samantha Shannon takes her series.

  7. says

    SO MANY AWESOME BOOKS! Of the list, I still need to read The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon, The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski, The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson, A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab, The Imposter Queen by Sarah Fine, and Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson.. so clearly I have a lot of reading to do XD YAY for Shadow and Bone being on your list! ;D

    Fantastic list! I’ve read the majority of your list, and the ones I haven’t are on my TBR! I planning on starting Rebel of the Sands fairly soon, hopefully! Oh and The Winner’s Kiss, can’t wait for the finale!

  9. says

    I definitely want to read Mistborn at some point – I’m on the Wheel of Time series at the moment (I’d definitely recommend it even though there are 14 books and they’re all 650 pages plus!) and almost at the point where Sanderson takes over so I think whether I like his part of the series will swing it for me as to whether I check out Mistborn!

  10. Sarah Cone says

    I’ve only read Rebel of the Sands(and LOVED IT!) but the others are on my TBR and I’m excited to read all of the books on your list (and their perspective series).
    Fantasy series I’d recommend are:
    The Inkheart trilogy
    The Soul Screamers series
    The Splintered series
    Harry Potter
    The Iron Fey series

  11. says

    I have read 7 of these books already and plan to read two of the others. lol The only one I probably won’t read is Game of Thrones, mostly because I watch the show and idk, I am okay with just doing that for now. πŸ˜€ Great list!

  12. says

    Great list! I absolutely LOVE A Game of Thrones! And I really like the Throne of Glass series and Shadow and Bone as well, along with The Impostor Queen. The Winner’s Curse was amazing when I read it but I don’t remember much so I want to reread before I continue the trilogy. I still need to read Kiss of Deception too. One of my favorite fantasy novels is Uprooted; Graceling is a great series too and you should try Dragonswood & In The Time of Dragon Moon, both by Janet Lee Carey. SO good!

  13. says

    Oh my gosh this post akes me super ashamed. I absolutey adore fantasy, but I’ve only read Throne of Glass and Rebel of the Sands! I do have The Bone Season, The Winner’s Curse, and The Imposter Queen, so hopefully I’ll get to all of them soon!
