Top Ten Fantasy Books I Want to Read

As usual, these aren’t really in any order. And I couldn’t pare it down to 10, so I did 10 stand-alones and series starters – stuff that will be new to me – plus 9 books in series I’m already following.

    Great list! You mentioned a lot of great titles that I read and enjoyed–The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland, Shades of Milk and Honey, Night Circus, The Ocean at the End of the Lane–Hope you enjoy all of them when you get around to them 🙂

      I’m glad you like so many of these – makes me think I’ve made good choices! A bunch of these are on my list of the 20 backlist books I MUST read this year (my Top of the Hoard challenge), so hopefully I will get to them by the end of the year.

    Gah, I keep adding new books to my TBR! 🙂 Great choices. I only read Graceling and I remember liking it a lot, but I never read the sequel for some reason… I haven’t read A Slow Regard of Silent Things, either – to be honest, I’m afraid it’ll be a terrible disappointment. Ditto for Shadow Scale, though I have an ARC of that so I’ll be reading it soon.

      I have the Shadow Scale ARC too, and a copy of A Slow Regard for Silent Things. For that matter, my mom gave me Graceling when it came out and I haven’t read it yet. Hopefully this year!

      Thanks, Kimba! I swear I will get to both of those books this year. (Maybe during the Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge!)

    So I read down this list going, “oh, oh, good books!” (Night Circus and The Thief and esp. The Girl Who Circumnavigated…) and some I want to read too (Dreamer’s Pool and Unbound and Winter) and THEN I saw the publication date for the new Tamora Pierce book. 2016? Really? Delayed AGAIN? Well, hmph…

      [sighs] Yup. Delayed again, according to her website. Oh, well. I’d rather she take the time to write the best book she can.

      I haven’t read any Sharon Shinn yet, either, but I had heard really good things about Summers at Castle Auburn as well as her other books. This one turned up at a library sale about 2 years ago and I’ve been meaning to get to it ever since. Good to have your recommendation on Dreamers Pool and the Fairyland books – thanks! And yes, by all means read Jim Hines’s Libriomancer series – if you love books generally and fantasy and SF in particular, the series is fantastic – lots of references to other books!

      Thanks, Jan! I own The Thief, too, and have been wanting to get to it for at least two or three years now. This is the year, I swear it.

    There are so many books on your list here that I want to read too!! I just really need to read more. I have been playing way too many video games lately. There just isn’t enough time in the day.

      No, there’s not. I’ve been spending more time on the computer than reading (email, facebook, blog, other people’s blogs, Tumblr, Pinterest…) I need to rein it in and spend more time with my books!
