Top Ten Tuesday - Top Ten Books for Readers Who Like Fantasy Novels

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.

This week's topic is the top ten books for readers who like ______. Which means that I get to pick something to fill in the blank. 

So I have chosen Fantasy novels (Both Christian and Secular).

1. The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien - the epic saga. I really liked the Appendixes best. ;)

2. The Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis - a fantastic series. I grew up on these books.

3. The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan - I was introduced to these books when I was in college, actually the summer before I graduated. They are long and wordy, but worth the chance to read them.

4. Elantris by Brandon Sanderson - I don't know what it was about this book that captured my attention, but something did. 

5. The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott - one of my Harry Potter friends, Spacecadet, introduced me to this series. I read these after Deathly Hallows came out.

6. The Harry Potter Books by JK Rowling - If I'm talking fantasy, these are definitely on this list.

7. The Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Mariller - a retelling of the Seven Swans fairy tale. I must admit, I like this book the best in the series.

8. The Books of the Infinite by RJ Lawson - Christian fantasy is hard to really put a finger on. Sometimes they are awesome. Other times, not so much. I enjoyed this series tremendously.  

9. Dauntless by Dina Sleiman - I'm currently reading this one. It's got the feel of a female Robin Hood.

10. The Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus Books by Rick Riordan - for someone who loves mythology like I do, these are wonderful books.

So how about you? What would make your list?


  1. I've read the Chronicles of Narnia, but those are the only ones from the list. You have a beautiful blog, by the way. I'm following it now. :) Aidyl @ Noveltea

  3. Love Narnia, but then I suspect most everyone does! Oh, and I cannot wait for my copy of Dauntless to get here. :)

    1. Dauntless is really good Rissi! Hope you get yours in soon!

  4. I believe you enjoy fantasy, Dawn! I've never been able to get into this genre, but I'm going to recommend your titles to some of my friends who I know would enjoy them.

    My top ten list this week features mystery series from the general market that I love. http://booksmusicandlife.blogspot.com/2015/03/top-ten-tuesday-031015.html

    1. I do LOVE fantasy! I've probably read more secular fantasy than I have other secular fiction.
