Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s theme is:
Fantasy Books I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Read
Fantasy is my favourite genre – but that doesn’t mean that I have read as much as I would have liked to. There are a ton of fantasy books/series that I just haven’t gotten around to yet (and many more I am positive I will discover at some point).
1. The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1) by Rick Riordan
I have wanted to read this series for years and I have absolutely no idea why I haven’t done so yet. Shame on me! Seriously though, I really need to read this.
2. Obernewtyn (The Obernewtyn Chronicles #1) by Isobelle Carmody
I bought most of this series a few years ago but still haven’t gotten around to picking it up just yet. This is definitely one I want to try and get to this year.
3. The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle #1) by Patrick Rothfuss
I bought this book when it first came out – and it is still gathering dust on my shelf! I have heard so many great things about this series – I really have to read it.
4. Sabriel (Abhorsen #1) by Garth Nix
This series has been out for years and years – and I am pretty ashamed that I haven’t sought it out yet! This is definitely one I should have read in my teen years but better late than never, right?
5. The Blue Sword (Damar #2) by Robin McKinley
This is technically the second book in the series but chronologically it was published first so it will be the first one I read. I haven’t actually read any of Robin McKinley’s books, even though I have purchased a fair few, this looks like a good place to start.
6. Eon: Rise of the Dragoneye (Eon #1) by Alison Goodman
This looks so amazing – I am really kicking myself as to why I haven’t read it yet (I bought the two-part series several years ago). I must read this soon.
7. Alanna: The First Adventure (Song of the Lioness #1) by Tamora Pierce
Another series I used have read in my younger years – I think it would have been something I really enjoyed back then. That’s not to say I wouldn’t love it now – just wish I had discovered it much earlier.
8. Stormdancer (The Lotus War #1) by Jay Kristoff
I was positively desperate for this book to come out and when it did… it sat on my shelf! I really am a terrible accumulator of books – I need to get round to reading the damn things! 😉
9. Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1) by Sarah J. Maas
No excuse for not reading this one. I have it – I will read it soon. It has been recommended by so many fellow bloggers I would be remiss not to read this.
10. The Final Empire (Mistborn #1) by Brandon Sanderson
Yup, I am a bad fantasy fan not having read this series yet! It is definitely on my radar (and my shelf!) and will be getting read post-haste!
