Fantasy books are some of my favourites to read because of how unique they can be and I love discovering the worlds that each author creates! If I had to choose one genre to read for the rest of my life, it would definitely be fantasy – there’s just so many great ones out there. This Top 5 Tuesday list was pretty difficult to make because I couldn’t decide on which books to add! I changed my mind so many times but finally figured out a list that I’m happy with, so here are a few of my favourite fantasy books…
Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm and each week there’s a different bookish topic to discuss. If you’re interested in participating, or checking out Shanah’s blog, click here!
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
This was a pretty easy decision for me because this series is so good. I prefer it so much more over the Throne of Glass series, mainly because the characters in ACOTAR are amazing and the plot is 1000% times better. I’m pretty sure that this was one of the first fantasy books that I read and that’s why I had to include it on this list!
Passenger duology by Alexandra Bracken
I could talk about this duology for ages because I love it so much, but I won’t say too much about it! There’s so many elements to this story that made it so much fun for me to read – there’s time travel, pirates, and music… I’m just obsessed with it all.
And I Darken by Kiersten White
I’m not sure if this is classed more as an historical novel or a fantasy one, but I’m going to go with fantasy. This is a retelling of Vlad the Impaler where Vlad is female, and it’s incredible. I’ve raved so much about this series since I finished the first book a few years ago, but it’s so good!! There’s so many amazingly complex characters, the politics of the time is so interesting to read about, and the plot is fantastic. I still need to read Bright We Burn, but I keep putting it off because I don’t want the series to end!
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
This is the most recent fantasy book that I’ve read and loved – I was so captivated by the plot that I couldn’t put it down. I loved the setting of the novel, and I was so interested in the magic system that was created because it was so detailed. There’s also an incredible amount of character development that almost every character goes through, which makes it even better!
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
I feel like I don’t really need to justify why I chose this one because it’s amazing!
