Schwab // The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey // Cinder by Marissa Meyer // Graceling by Kristin Cashore // The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima // Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling

The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch as a special mentioning. 

127455Not exactly targeted for YA audience, but a brilliant, mesmerising story that can very well entertain younger audiences as well.

Though the start is a bit slow, the world build-up is simply one of its kind, the characters are multidimensional and will stay with you for a long time to come, and the plot is incredibly smart and entertaining as well as heart-breaking. 

I simply couldn't write a post about fantasy books and not mention this beauty.

I gave all these books either 4 or 5 stars out of 5, so I think it goes without saying that these are some of my favourite fantasy books that I've ever read. And look at all those pretty covers. Don't they just want to make you grab them and devour them this instance? 


  1. I enjoyed Throne of Glass, Lies, Harry Potter and Mistborn. Especially Mistborn. I've heard a lot of great things about Novik's Temeraire series. Is Uprooted similar?

  2. A few of these made my list, too! Fantasy is my favorite genre! I'm planning on reading the Mistborn series soon. I've never heard of The Demon King before though so I'll have to go check that one out!
