Top Ten Tuesday: All Time Favorite Books in the Fantasy Genre

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten All Time Favorite Books in the Fantasy Genre

1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter #1) by J. K. Rowling

The book/series that began my love affair with young adult fantasy.

2. Graceling (Graceling Realm #1) by Kristin Cashore

Katsa and Po are two of my favorite fantasy characters. This is the book I recommend to anyone that has the tiniest of interest in fantasy.

3. The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings #1) by J.R.R. Tolkien

This is probably my first adult fantasy, and it will always hold a special place in my heart.

4. Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

This isn't the first Gaiman book I read, but it is my favorite.

5. Magic Bites (Kate Daniels #1) by Ilona Andrews

The Kate Daniels series is my favorite urban fantasy series.

6. Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1) by Sarah J. Maas

7. The Demon King (Seven Realms #1) by Cinda Williams Chima

8. Finnikin of the Rock (Lumatere Chronicles #1) by Melina Marchetta

9. Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin #1) by Robin LaFevers

10. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

Stiefvater writes the most beautiful, lyrical books. Even when I don't like how the books end (see Forever (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #3)), I still love reading them.

  3. Woow! Great top 10! Kate Daniels is one of my favorite as well.

    My top 10

  4. I've read a few Gaiman and Neverwhere has been on my TBR list for a while -- maybe I'll have to bump it up the list. Here's my Top 10

    1. You really should! Plus, there is an audio version that Gaiman narrates, and it makes it even better.

  5. Great list! Not that I've read all the books on here but if I haven't read them, then they're definitely on my TBR list. I absolutely adore The Lumatere Chronicles by Melina Marchetta! Each book in the trilogy was better than the first, IMO! I still swoon about those books til this very day ♥ Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman is also a favorite of mine, actually it's a lifetime goal of mine to collect everything Gaiman has every published (well, the ones I can afford and get my hands on) Throne of Glass is one that I have been wanting to read for a while now, I actually just bought the book not to long ago. I'm excited about that one!
