Fantasy Recommendations 📖

Hey bookworms!

Recently, I have been in the biggest fantasy kick, I have read all fantasy books, and nothing else. 

Due to reading only fantasy for the past couple of months, I have discovered some brilliant books that I’d like to share! 

DISCLAIMER: I have left out the obvious off of this list: Harry Potter, The Infernal Devices, The Mortal Instruments etc. We are all aware I love them. This list is for the books I have read recently. 
So, here are my fantasy book recommendations:

1. Vicious by V. E. Schwab:

I read this book not too long ago, which is funny because it’s been on my TBR for years. I am so happy I got around to reading it, the characters are so unique and the plot is absolutely fascinating. Also, I’d like to say that the book itself is rather unique; I have never read a book based on EOs before. I really recommend this book!

2. Daughter of The Burning City by Amanda Foody:

This book is Amanda Foody’s debut novel, and it was amazing. I have just received her second novel Ace of Shades from the publisher for review and I cannot wait to read it! Daughter of The Burning City is a very unique fantasy book, surrounding a girl and her imaginary friends. It’s unlike any book I have ever read and in a good way. I loved it. 

3. The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert:

This is Melissa Albert’s debut novel and wasn’t it brilliant?! This book made me feel magical and whimsical whilst reading it, probably due to fairy tales being a massive part of it. This is also a very short book, which in my opinion is a negative, however, it did end the story very well with no loose ends, so the length of the book didn’t have a negative impact on the story. 

4. The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo:

I talk about these books so often I worry people are bored of them haha! But I can’t write this list without including one of my favourite trilogies of all time. I read these books late last year, so I was actually really late to the hype. Anyway these books blew me away. The characters, the plot, the world building.. it all changed my reading life forever. Bold statement, I know, but also very true. 

5. The Skulduggery Pleasant Series by Derek Landy:

I still need to read books 9 and 10 of this series but I already know it’s one of my favourite series of all time. Book 8 is my favourite so far. I read the first 5 of these books when I was younger and I think it was lucky I never continued on until now.. they’re so scary! These books get better and better with every one and I love them. I have such a connection with the characters now, I will be so upset when I finish the series. 

6. A Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor:

I loved this book when I first read it back in 2016. However, I haven’t continued on with the trilogy YET. I own all three of them, and I will continue reading soon. This book, like all the others on this list, is what I’d call greatly unique. The whole premise is very different to anything I have ever read before and Laini Taylor’s writing style is fantastic. 

7. The Name of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss:

This book took me over one whole month to read, but damn wasn’t it worth it. I was definitely put off by the size of this novel, but I did want to give it a shot after hearing just how good people think it is. I’m so happy I read this book! I don’t want to say much as I don’t want to spoil anything, also I found going into it not knowing what it is about is the best way, especially with a novel this big. Just know it’s an amazing book with an interesting plot. 
So there you have it! Those are some fantasy books I have read recently and loved! If you have any recommendations you’d think I would like please feel free to leave a comment below and tell me!

  1. Great recommendations!! I loved Strange the Dreamer so I definitely have to get to Daughter of Smoke and Bone! And I’ve had The Name of the Wind on my shelf for years now but every time I look at the size of that novel I put it off a little longer. Hopefully I can get to it this year.

    1. I am yet to read Strange The Dreamer but I have heard such good things about it. And yes, The Name of The Wind is massive! But totally worth it. I ended up reading multiple books at the same time when reading it so that I wouldn’t fall behind my reading challenge!
