Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
It’s been a while since the last time I did a TTT post! The last couple topics are just too difficult for me and I didn’t feel like doing them at all </3 but this week topic got me back in the game! 😀 Well to be fair, asking a bookworm to pick ALL TIME FAVORITES is like asking a mom to pick a favorite child 😛 It’s a cruel thing to do, but it is a pretty fun topic! I enjoy a lot of genres but fantasy is still and will always be my favorite. So today, I’ll list down my some of my all time favorite fantasy books! ♥
I’m aware that this would be the million-dollar topic this week and you’ll see pretty much the same books everywhere, but whatever 😛
This must be obvious but how could we talk about all time favorite fantasy books without mentioning Harry Potter? It’s my ultimate favorite! I think, HP might be the very fist fantasy book I’ve ever read (and watched). All those magic and wizarding school? I’ll never get over it! Although… I’m saddened by the fact that I do not own any physical copies of Harry Potter 😦 I first read it when I was in elementary school by borrowing the books from my friends and by the time I started collecting books, I felt like it was already too late to start buying them all. At least I own all the ebooks 😛
I know, I know, you must be tired of seeing this book on my list, but can you blame me?!! It’s SO GOOD and very magical! It HAD TO make the list, considering this week’s theme 😛 If you haven’t read it, please do! And then proceed to its sequel The Rose and the Dagger they’re both so good ♥
All of Sarah J. Maas‘ books! ♥
It’s no secret anymore that I have a love/hate relationship with this series. Sometimes I love it, hate it, cry over it, and be mad at it because it’s just so complicated! But fantasy speaking, it’s only fair for this series to make the list. EVERYTHING is so magical! The characters are fae and humans with magic and the world building is just so extravagant. I have yet to read Empire of Storms but I have hopes despite all the negative reviews 😛
While I have a love/hate relationship with ToG, I’m ALL for this trilogy! ACOTAR is by far the best fairy tale retelling I have ever read. It has the original and vital elements of the classic Beauty and the Beast BUT it was so much more than that! Both the characters and the plot are so strong and this is one of those series that get better each book. I can’t wait for the final book ♥♥♥
A Darker Shade of Magic was BRILLIANT. I adore this book SO BADLY! ♥ It’s so good and original and probably my current favorite fantasy book these days. The world building is so epic and vivid and the characters are super amazing. Also, plot twists absolutely everywhere! Check out my review here.
I was hooked by the synopsis of this book because library for the dead? BRING IT! The idea was so original, the execution successful, and the world building flawless. This book was also another proof of Victoria Schwab’s cleverness and it sealed my love for her ♥ Check out my review here.
Absolutely ALL of Rick Riordan‘s books! I’m totally smitten 😛
The pictures only show HoO books because my cousins borrowed all my copies of PJO and I don’t have physical copy of The Hidden Oracle </3
I watched the movie before I read the book and I was so in love with this series! You could say, it was love at first read 😛 I never gave much thought about greek myth before, but PJO instantly stole my heart! ♥ I’ve been obsessed with greek myth ever since! Not to mention that the books were so hilariously awesome!
Imagine my delight on discovering this series after saying goodbye to PJO! I WAS STOKED! ♥ More Percy?! Count me in! It was much more complex with all the Roman myth but equally great. Genius plot. I love it and it has the best character development I’ve ever read so far. Not to mention some new characters to fangirl over… hehe.
Do you think after so many books about greek myth spin-off I’d be tired of it? NOT A CHANCE. I was excited for this book and it didn’t disappoint at all! This book was hands down the most hilarious of all. It’s so refreshing to see the story from a god point of view, especially when he’s Apollo. I mean, hilarious at its best! 😛 I’m so excited for The Dark Prophecy.
I supposed if you enjoyed all these books, you’d also enjoy Kane Chronicles & Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard. I haven’t read Magnus Chase but I enjoyed Kane Chronicles quite a lot! I still prefer greek myth though 😛
This book is full-on BRILLIANT! I’ve always been obsessed with group quest and this book is about a group of criminals trying to perform an impossible heist. It couldn’t get any better! 😛 It was gripping from the very beginning, fast paced, super intense, and the characters are so precious. I can’t wait for Crooked Kingdom! Check out my review here.
This book was awesome! ♥ I really enjoyed this and was genuinely surprised to hear that a lot of people didn’t love this! I’ve seen a lot of complaints regarding technical aspects so objectively speaking, this book probably wasn’t that great. BUT, the only thing that matters is that I enjoyed it A LOT and I’m currently reading A Torch Against the Night (almost done) and it’s so emotional & full of twists! Stay tuned for my full review in the next couple of days 😀
So who else LOVES fantasy!? Do you share my love for any of these books? Have other books to recommend to me? Please do! 😛 What genre did you choose for this week theme? Link me to your own TTT so I could check them out ♥ & thank you for reading! 🙂
