Hello hello and happy Tuesday! Todays Top Ten Tuesday is all about our favourite genre and mine is fantasy so here are my 10 favourite fantasy reads: how many have you read?
1. A Darker Shade of Magic
We got pirates, princes and the best enemies, what more can you want?
“I’d rather die on an adventure than live standing still”
2. The Raven Boys
Posh boys looking for a bit more magic? Yep, this undoubtedly doesn’t end well.
“She wasn’t interested in telling other people’s futures. She was interested in going out and finding her own”
3. City of Bones
Our snarky, arrogant, hilarious love interest realising he’s super powerful. Prepare for a side splitting adventure.
“Don’t touch any of my weapons without my permission.”
“Well, there goes my plan to sell them on eBay,” Clary muttered
4. Children of Blood and Bone
We got magic, evil rulers and treacherous royalty. What more could you want?
“Courage does not always roar. Valor does not always shine.”
All the best fantasy include an impossible game and the odd missing family member, right?
“Every person has the power to change their fate if they are brave enough to fight for what they desire more than anything“
6. To Kill a Kingdom
There’s ships, magic, sass and banter. Can you think of more me book?
“Lies aren’t answers.”
“But they sound so much better than the truth”
7. Harry Potter
There’s this wizard and he has a scar and, well, you know the rest.
“Do you remember me telling you we are practicing non-verbal spells, Potter?”
“Yes,” said Harry stiffly.
“There’s no need to call me “sir” Professor.”
8. Strange the Dreamer
Fairy tales, adventure, a couple of ghosts and crazy magical kids thrown in there for good measure.
“It was impossible, of course. But when did that ever stop any dreamer from dreaming”
9. Rebel of the Sands
We couldn’t very well get to the end of the list with just one tyrannical leader, could we?
“She moved like a storm someone had given steel to”
10. Percy Jackson
They say the best stories are based on facts, but I’m pretty sure the best stories are based on myths.
“Wow,” Thalia muttered. “Apollo is hot.”
“He’s the sun god,” I said.
“That’s not what I meant.”
