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