It’s Tuesday again :) TTT meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s topic is Ten Books For Readers Who Like _______
I chose fantasy because it has always been and will probably always be my favorite genre. And my list has book series mostly…sorry for that! The books in this list are in no particular order.
1. Harry Potter by J.K.Rowling
2. Doomspell trilogy by Cliff McNish
Something I call “pure fantasy”. How magic and witchcraft works in Doomspell books is so deeply thought over, element of magic is better than in Potter and that’s why you should read this.
3. His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman
All my childhood I wanted to have daemon. I was obsessed with them for a long time. His Dark Materials has really good writing, parallel universes, beautiful written characters. You’ll like this if you liked Harry Potter, though it’s much more darker…just READ IT!
4. The Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb
(and The Tawny Man Trilogy… and Soldier Son Trilogy). Robin Hobb is probably my most favorite fantasy author. Her books stun me. I can be disgusted by the main character of her books and then I end up loving them very very much. Very few authors are capable of that.
5. The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss
Before I read The Name of the Wind I was beginning to feel very disappointed with fantasy authors. There was nothing new, nothing interesting, nothing “epic”. Name of the Wind proved me wrong. It proved me that there are still authors who are capable of writing epical fantasy. You’ll love this if you loved Song of Ice and Fire.
6. Lord of the Rings and Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien
If you haven’t read these…You should. March 25 is the annual Tolkien Reading Day…perfect time to start ;)
7. The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S.Lewis
8. Earthsea Cycle by Ursula K. Le Guin
9. Discworld by Terry Pratchett
I haven’t read all 40 books of the Discworld books. You don’t gave to start reading Discworld from the beginning, you can read any book you want to. Inhabitants of Discworld include wizards, witches, trolls and dwarves. It’s kind of ridiculous fantasy, nothing really makes sense and it’s kind of ‘messy’ world but it’s what makes it good.
10. A Song of Ice and Fire by George R R Martin
Epic, epic, epic. Only reason why you as fantasy lover might not like these is that it takes author forever to write o.O
