TTT: Top 10 Fantasy Books I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Read!

Posted February 3, 2015 by Wendy in Uncategorized / 14 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!

When I was younger ALL I read was fantasy. That was my first genre love. It is still what I love best. And yet, there are some fantasy titles I CANNOT believe I still haven’t gotten to. It’s terrible. I will be getting to these as soon as possible! (Especially since these will work great counting toward the #FlightsofFantasy challenge!)

1. The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas: I even met Sherry Thomas at a Fierce Reads event! I don’t know why I haven’t started this series yet!!

2. Graceling by Kristin Cashore: This sounds epic. I’ve got to get to this.

3. Fire and Thorns trilogy by Rae Carson: I’ve also met this author. I also think I’d love this series. What is wrong with me?? No idea why I haven’t started this yet.

4. Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan: I guess what I was worried about slightly with this series is that it would read too MG for me? On the other hand, I’ve seen raving reviews from people I trust so… it must be good! Oh and I own the whole series. 🙂

5. Midnight Thief by Livia Blackburne: I was DYING for this to be released, I couldn’t wait! I read the prequel novella and was so excited and now? Still haven’t read it.

6. Froi of the Exiles by Melina Marchetta: I actually read Finnikin of the Rock before I started blogging and LOVED it. Then when I started blogging I discovered SO many books and somehow never got around to continuing this amazing series!

7. The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkowski: When this released last year I wanted it SO badly. Jessica at Lovin’ Los Libros gifted it to me for Christmas (thank you!!) and now I need to finally read it!

8. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon: I’m really intrigued by this one! I’ve seen some love it, some not, but I’ve wanted to read it for awhile! I even own a copy!

9. The Falconer by Elizabeth May: The cover is freaking gorgeous. I was dying for this one so much that Betty at Book Rock Betty was nice enough to get me a copy from ALAMW LAST year. Yeah. LAST year. I still haven’t read it. Ugh! Why! I need to!

10. Alanna by Tamora Pierce: WHY IN THE WORLD haven’t I read Tamora Pierce yet?! And I call fantasy my first love?!

This whole list has made me feel ashamed of myself. I’m remedying this situation ASAP, trust me!!

What are some books you can’t believe you haven’t read yet?

  1. The Burning Sky! YES. Fire and Thorns! YES! Percy! YES! (Def not too MG- they get older as they go kinda like HP did) I still need to read Graceling (which I’m going to very soon before Heather kills me), TWC (I’m embarrassed how long I’ve had it), and Midnight Thief!

    Ahhhh. So many books…. never ever enough time. 🙁

    Personally, I didn’t like Graceling that much and The Winner’s Curse was so meh for me (black sheep here). But I LOVE Fire and Thorns, and PJO is really good (making my way through those) and ARGH THE BONE SEASON IS AMAZING. The Mime Order was just WAOOOOOOOO <3 Melina Marchetta is like Queen of Aussie YA 😀

  3. I totally spaced TTT this week and I was going to do Fantasy as well. I haven’t read the entire Percy Jackson series, just the first book but I really liked it and I don’t feel it is too MG. I’d say, in MY opinion, it would be on level with saying Harry Potter was too MG? That’s the only one in your list that I’ve read though. Of course #1 on my list would be….*mumbles* Throne of Glass…Soooo….How’s it goin?? LOL

  4. I’ve heard mixed things about The Winner’s Curse but if mine was different kind of list it would have definitely been there. Same with Graceling. But Percy Jackson and the Olympians is an incredible series and don’t let the MG put you off it :3 A great list you have here!

    Here’s my Top Ten

  5. I strongly urge (pushes you to it!) that you read Froi like NOW. I promise you won’t be sorry. It is FANTASTIC!

  6. I am not a big fantasy reader, but it seems like lately I have been a lot of it LOL

    I didn’t love The Winners Curse like everyone else seemed too. But I do think I would enjoyed it more had I read it, not listened to the audio. The only other book I’ve read that you listed was Graceling LOL

  7. Ah yay for Percy Jackson! I absolutely recommend the series to you! It is a bit middle grade, but I think the mythology and magic aspects of it can appeal to any age. (If it encourages you, my mom read the books and enjoyed them 😉 ) Coincidentally, I finished The Winner’s Curse yesterday, and would also recommend that. I hope you enjoy all ten!

  8. Burning Sky, Winner’s Curse, Fire and Thorns and Bone Season!! So good. First book in the Bone Season series was mediocre for me, but the Mime Order was amazing!!

    I really need to read Graceling and Midnight Thief. I was so excited for Midnight Thief when it came out and then I never got around to it. Fail.

    Also Tamora Pierce. You haven’t read anything by her???? I LOVED her books in middle school. She is amazing.
