Top Ten Fantasy books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, is a different Top Ten book themed topic. This weeks theme is the Top Ten Books I Would Recommend To Someone Who Has Never Read [genre].

I have chosen Fantasy

Many of these will be big, well known books – but they’re popular for a reason!

The Lies of Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastard, #1)A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)

1. Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss – Magic, adventure, love and lots of luck.

2. The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch – Thieves, elaborate plot and twists, and violence.

3. Game of Thrones by George R. R Martin – Many houses fighting for the Iron Throne, deceit, lies, sex and violence, No one is safe.

5. The Magician’s Guild by Trudi Canavan (Or any of her series for that matter!) – Magicians

6. Theft of Swords by Michael J Sullivan – Assassins and thieves,

Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdoms, #1)Divine by Mistake (Partholon, #1)

7. Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes – Magic, battling kingdoms and love.

8.  Divine by Mistake by P.C.Cast – for younger readers, Godessess, Centaurs, Myths and War.

9. The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkein – definitely easier than LOTR! Hobbits, Dwarves, Wizards and Dragons.

10. Harry Potter by J.K.Rowling – “Yer a wizard, Harry!”

    • I just had a look! What an awesome genre you chose. I personally have never really been into comics, but my room mate ADORES Marvel, so I will have a look and see if she has any of the ones you suggested. I would totally pay to see them turn Captain America – Streets of Poison into a movie!
