Top Ten Favorite Books in the Fantasy Genre

Hosted here.

Top Ten Favorite Books in the Fantasy Genre

This weeks top ten was slightly different in that I got to choose the genre and, with that option, it should surprise exactly no one that I would pick fantasy. I love fantasy novels and I have ever since I started reading them years ago. These aren't really in an order, besides one being my favorite and two my second favorite. Also, if the books are a series, I only chose one of them for this list.

This is cheating a little, though there are fantasy elements to this story. I just love this book so much though that I had to mention it.

Such a fun book. It doesn't try to be deep and thought provoking, taking the fun-fantasy-romp route instead and it does that so well.

This book is actually the sequel to my first ever fantasy novel. And, it's even better that the first was.

My first ever Discworld novel and - to date - still my favorite. The humor in this book just had me in stitches but it also knew when to 'get serious' - or at least as serious as Discworld can get.

While this book is my favorite by her, it is also the last in its respective series. A series that is one of my favorite and it has a strong urban fantasy feel - along with vampires an werewolves.

A wonderful steampunk novel that is also cheating a bit. But the world is distinctly not ours so its like steampunk in a fantasy setting.

This is one of my favorite authors, I love all his books, and this is without a doubt, my favorite series of his. Though, I also adore his first series as well.

Honestly, this setting was so darn cool. I love the setting and thought it pushed what could have been a good book to a really great book.

This book is just so awesome. I loved it and I adore Celaena so much. For me, she's pretty much the perfect female in a fantasy novel. The guys aren't half bad either.

I could have easily chosen three other books in this series for this slot, but I decided to go with the first one. This is also the one that made me love and adore this series and the two main guys.

So, that's my list. I'd love to know if you've read any books on here and let me know what your top ten is - even if it's not fantasy.


  1. Oooo! You've got some good ones there! Loved 'Throne of Glass', 'The Rithmatist' and 'Girl in the Steel Corset'. Big fan of Gail Carriger too. Great list!
