Top Ten Tuesday, a concept started by The Broke and the Bookish, is a themed post that connects bloggers to bloggers, bloggers to readers, and readers to readers. Every Tuesday has a special topic, and this Tuesday is Top Ten All Time Favorite Books in X Genre, and I’ve chosen Fantasy.
There are so many books out there, and fantasy has such a broad spectrum in adult, young adult, and children’s fiction. Because I cannot claim to have read all the great fantasy books, I can only provide the 10 favorites that I’ve read.
1. Harry Potter — Come on, I shouldn’t have to explain the whole series
2. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe — really, the entire series, because the concept of stumbling into this magical world is so alluring
3. Seraphina — I’m not one for dragon stories, and yet this is enthralling
4. Discovery of Witches — *grabby hands*
5. Defiance — Dragons, backwards future society, high tech devices, and a kick-ass heroine, ohmygoshgimmemore
6. The Winter Witch — Set in Wales? Okay!
7. Daughter of Smoke and Bone — *GRABBY HANDS*
8. The Night Circus — Excuse me while I go cry
9. Shadowfell — Oh my gosh, Celtic lore? Yes, please…
10. The Beautiful and the Cursed — Gargoyles!
