I always try to finish a book, but recently I have struggled with three books and put them down before finishing them – all for different reasons, however. Book 1: Wizard’s First Rule by Terry Goodkind I was going to make a seperate post for this book but there is little for me to say
Reading tastes change slightly over time, so here is an updated list of my favourite fantasy books. They are in no particular order but they are all brilliant! A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire #3) by George R.R. Martin The third book in Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire is
Stand-alone fantasy books can be hard to find but if you don’t want to get trapped in a series but still love the fantasy genre, it can be difficult to pick anything up. SF has almost the opposite problem! Here is a short list of suggestions: The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien I put The Hobbit
Themis Files by Sylvain Neuvel This trilogy has quickly become one of my favourite modern fantasy series. Written in an epistolary format, it is very easy to read and you flick through the pages quickly. The story is fantastic. Check out my reviews for Sleeping Giants (#1), and Waking Gods (#2). Foundation Trilogy by Isaac
Summer is the perfect time to sit yourself down in the Sun and start reading a huge fantasy series. This list is in no particular order but they are great places to start in the fantasy genre as well as being relatively fast-paced reads. Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson This trilogy is a great introduction
5. Summoner by Taran Matharu Book 1 in this series is The Novice. When blacksmith apprentice Fletcher discovers that he has the ability to summon demons from another world, he travels to Adept Military Academy. There the gifted are trained in the art of summoning. Fletcher is put through grueling training as a battlemage to fight
Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson I finished reading The Final Empire July(ish) 2017 and have not picked up the other books since. I think I started Well of Ascension but I got no further than chapter two before being distracted by some other book. I really want to get back into this series with Vin and the wonderful
5. Six of Crows (Six of Crows #1) by Leigh Bardugo Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price–and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams.
I realised, when making the last post about this, that choosing five books was simply too few, so here are another five books to add to that list! (For the other post, click here). 5. The Broken Empire by Mark Lawrence The first book in this series is called Prince of Thorns. This series screams
In this list, I will be talking about the Top 5 Epic Fantasy Books that I need to read! There are so many brilliant epic fantasy series out there but I didn’t know where to start, so I compiled this list. 5. Lightbringer by Brent Weeks The first book in the series is The Black
Before recently, I had never really read much sci-fi, and by sci-fi I mean Hard Science-Fiction. After reading Foundation by Isaac Asimov (See my review here), I picked up a few more books in the same genre. So, here are the Top 5 Sci-Fi Books That I Need to Read: 5. The Dispossessed by Ursula K.
5. The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis I grew up reading Lewis’ Narnia series. They carved a path straight through my mind that drove me into new world through the fantasy genre. There is only one book from my childhood that had more of an impact, and it’s next on the list…
5. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley Far in the future, the World Controllers have created the ideal society. Through clever use of genetic engineering, brainwashing and recreational sex and drugs, all its members are happy consumers. Bernard Marx seems alone harbouring an ill-defined longing to break free.
