One of my favourite book genres is Fantasy, so I thought that I would write a post where I recommend my favourite fantasy books.
Throne of Glass (series) – Sarah J. Maas:
Recommended order of reading: The Assassin’s Blade -> Throne of Glass -> Crown of Midnight -> Heir of Fire -> Queen of Shadows -> Empire of Storms -> Tower of Dawn -> Kingdom of Ash
I recommend this series for ages 12 and up, as there are violence and romance plots.
This series follows an 18-year-old assassin through her duties at the Assassin’s Guild of killing selected people. Even though Throne of Glass is the ‘official’ first book of the series, I recommend reading The Assassin’s Blade first, as the event that happens at the end of this book is talked about a lot in the other books (this prevents The Assassin’s Blade from being one big anticlimax). This book series has many plot twists and turns, which makes it near impossible to put the books down. What I do like with this book series is that the plot is interesting and ‘readable’ all the way through, and, unlike other books, it doesn’t hold off until the last 100 pages before getting interesting. Without giving anything away, the ending is probably the last way you’d expect the series to finish, but that just makes it even more amazing and spectacular.
Best book in the series: Kingdom of Ash
Recommended reading order: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children -> Hollow City -> Library of Souls -> Tales of the Peculiar -> A Map of Days -> The Conference of the Birds -> The Desolations of Devil’s Acre
I recommend this series for ages 12 and up, as it can be quite scary at times.
For those of you that have been reading my blog regularly (and thank you so so much if you have), you will already know that this is one of my favourite book series of all time. At the beginning of the series, a peculiar world seems far away and out of reach, but with the clever intertwining of the normal and peculiar worlds, Ransom Riggs has crafted a clever story that always grips the reader.
Best book in the series: Library of Souls
I am currently reviewing this series until May 3rd, then I will return to reviewing the series once I have attained a copy of the final two books.
Harry Potter (series) – JK Rowling:
Recommended order of reading: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone -> Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets -> Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban -> Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire -> Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix -> Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince -> Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
I recommend this book series for anyone of any age, as it is easy to follow along with, as well as being an emotional story at the same time.
This series follows Harry Potter, a boy who as a baby defeated the most powerful evil wizard, through his journey at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. Every year, he has an adventure with his best friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, before the epic ending at the end of the seventh book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The books above are the set that I have owned since my eleventh birthday, and countless reads later, they are somehow still going strong!

So, there are my favourite fantasy books. Obviously, I can’t list every fantasy book I have ever read, and there are many many books that I haven’t read.
What are your favourite fantasy books? Have I included your favourite fantasy books in this list? Please comment what your thoughts on fantasy books are!
Thank you for reading my blog. On Sunday, I will be reviewing Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs.
