Have you read name of the wind
Heard of it. Is it any good?
It’s amazing. Couldn’t put it down. There’s two out so far and very very addictive
There’s possibly a long wait for the third though, not that they’re not good, but if you like a complete set you might want to hold off.
That’s true. I’m dying for the next one but still glad I read them.
Favourite. Series. Hands down.
I don’t think he’s going to ever finish that series…idk what’s the holdup
How many years has it been since he last published the second book?
That’s forever ago
City of bones?
Read that. It’s really good
Who’s your favourite?
Uh no, sorry, my fault. I meant character
Oh haha you’re all good. Hmm….I like Simon. He sounds like a friend I would have in real life
Aw that’s sweet. I love the arguments between him and jace, who can be the most sarcastic ?
Simon is hilarious ?
To many to name! Haha what are a few you’ve read?
I’m still quite a beginner in fantasy. So not much
Haha its ok. Hmm I dont read much YA I think the last one I read was Bone Witch.
The Dragonbone Chair by Tad WIlliams.
Hmmm, what makes it good? I might consider reading the series.
Heres the description from Goodreads; I’d try to explain it but the story gets complicated!
A war fueled by the powers of dark sorcery is about to engulf the peaceful land of Osten Ard—for Prester John, the High King, lies dying. And with his death, the Storm King, the undead ruler of the elf-like Sithi, seizes the chance to regain his lost realm through a pact with the newly ascended king. Knowing the consequences of this bargain, the king’s younger brother joins with a small, scattered group of scholars, the League of the Scroll, to confront the true danger threatening Osten Ard.
Simon, a kitchen boy from the royal castle unknowingly apprenticed to a member of this League, will be sent on a quest that offers the only hope of salvation, a deadly riddle concerning long-lost swords of power. Compelled by fate and perilous magics, he must leave the only home he’s ever known and face enemies more terrifying than Osten Ard has ever seen, even as the land itself begins to die.

A Court Of Thorns And Roses series???
Thursday Next series. Jasper Fforde.
Read the eyre affair first, and it will make sense! Read them out of order and you get lost with all the references.
Naomi Novik. Patrick Rothfuss. Game of Thrones!
My mom wouldn’t allow me to read GoT series because of sexually graphic scenes. Same with outlander. I live in a conservative Christian household haha
I’ll try his books ?
I wouldn’t recommend a court of thorns and roses if you can’t do the sexual scenes! Just FYI. And throne of glass has a little in one of the books.
Shades of magic series by V. E. Schwab. Any book by Tolkien. Harry Potter books. Song of ice and fire series by George Martin. The old kingdom series by Garth Nix. Every heart a doorway by Seanna McGuire. Dark tower series by Stephen King. Over the Garden Wall by Pat Mchale. The Amulet series by Kazu Kabushi. Ect.
The Discworld series by the late great Terry Pratchett. 😀
If you’ve got time to invest, The Thomas Covenant chronicles.
They’re not an easy read by any means, but I have loved them.
Anything by Tamora Pierce.
This came up right as I was pasting the link in for the Lioness Quartet series. 😉
Also, The Death Gate Cycle by Hickman & Weiss.
Loved & reread several times over.
I’ve recommended this series to a good number or people over the years, and everyone of them has ended up liking it. It’s considered young adult, so its a great start for someone just getting into fantasy reading.
All of Tamora Pierce’s are good reads. 😀
I read these in high school and still love them today.
Nothing better than harry potter series
The enchanted forest chronicles Patricia C. Wrede and anything by dianna wynne jones especially the chronicles of chrestomanci and howls moving castle.
If you like fantasy, please, please, do not miss out on The Sevenwaters series by Juliet Marillier (or any of her books, really…) ?
Lunar Chronicles by Melissa Myer. First one in the cmseries is Cinder. Wonderful retelling of Cinderella set in the future
I’m reading cress right now ☺️
Mine. Start with the Swan and Arrow.
Definitely the Dragonlance Chronicles by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman! And I can’t recommend Name of the Wind enough
Ruby Red trilogy by Kirsten Gier and Falling Kingdoms series by Morgan Rhodes
Throne of Glass!!
Loved them ?
It’s unfortunate that the films were never completed.
That’s true. The movie was visually great, the actors also amazing, but the story was changed not to “disturb” the church, and I think much was lost because of that. Still, I would have liked to see the series completed.
The Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor!!!!!
Rylea Adamson series or Elemantals series both by Shannon Mayor ?
Sabaa Tahir’s books!!!
Throne of Glass (read Throne of Glass then The Assassin’s Blade) and A Court Of Thorns And Roses
what does “ASAP” mean ?
As far as I know it means as soon as possible ?
You’re welcome ??
define fantasy — Knights? Wizards? Vampires? Personally, I think the bible is a fantasy story but I suspect that’s not quite what you have in mind.
Any fantasy really. I’m kinda new at this genre
Arcana chronicles ????
Actually this is a little sexual in the second and fourth books so maybe not!!
Wicked lovely series and the iron fey series are great ya fantasy ☺️
Sea of shadows series is reallllyyy good too!!
Ooh Half Bad trilogy too!!
Was this good? I started the first one and dnf
All Souls Trilogy by Deborah harkness
If you like Urban Fantasy you might want to try Dresden Files. Then there’s Brandon Sanderson (author) pretty much anything he writes is good, in my opinion.
Which is the first book in The Dresden Files series? ?
@Heather Storm Front
@Sondra thanks, that’s what I thought but wanted to double check ????
Love those books so much! Storm Front and Fool Moon are a little rough but omg the series sucks you in and I love the characters SO MUCH! I want to climb inside the book and live there lol
I look forward to the experience! They definitely sound right up my alley. I’m always looking for a new series with a decent amount of books in it ?
Odd Thomas series by Dean Koontz.
Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay, Heartless by Marissa Meyer, and Poison’s Kiss by Breeana Shields ?
Anything by Sara Douglass! ❤️
The Name of the Wind, Harry Potter, Eragon series…welcome to the Fantasy genre! There are a lot of good books here
How’s Eragon? The movie was said to be bad a bad adaptation, but how about the books?
The books are excellent! I am a firm believer in books over movies. Eragon is one of my favorite series to read.
“Incarceron” and then “Sapphique”! Both are by Catherine Fisher.
Not sure if it’s been mentioned but Neil Gaiman is my favourite fantasy author. You could start with Neverwhere, or American Gods.
Terry Pratchett and/or Neil Gaiman
Also Tolkien of course with LotRs. Brendon Sanderson writes a good fantasy. The Mistborn series is worthwhile.
I loved his standalone Elantris, which I think was his debut – keep thinking of rereading it, and I still have the Mistborn series on my TBR.
@Leslie haven’t read Elantris, may have to give it a try.
The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
Terry Brooks , David eddings Raymond e feist robin hobb all great fantasy writers x
Following love all you fantasy readers you are my clan!!!
Chronicles of NARNIA!!!!!!!!
If you’ve already read them, it’s time for a reread =D
Written in Red, by Anne Bishop,
The Golem and the Jinni, by Helene Wrecker
Shannon Hale and Gale Carson Levine both write good fantasy books.
Eoin Colfer’s Artemis Fowl series.
The Last Unicorn, by Peter S. Beagle.
The Indian in the Cupboard, by Lynne Reid Banks.
Kim Stanley Robinson… Mars trilogy
I classify that as more sci fi.
why cannot it be both?
To me it just doesn’t fit the fantasy genre. Speculative as well as sci fi, but not fantasy.
When it was written…. because we were a lifetime away from going to mars… I considered it fantasy.
Brendon Sanderson is twice the writer that Robert Jordan ever was…. I know that is going to upset a lot of people… but the best books of the series by a wide margin were written by Sanderson….. The early Jordan Books were okay…. By book three…. crap..
HG Wells wrote War of the Worlds and Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote about mars in the 19th century. I’d call that sci fi. To me fantasy has elves, dragons, magicians, some sort of magic in it. I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree.

These would be a for starters.
NARNIA! -erm, I mean, here’s some others…

A bite to remember
Any Terry Goodkind book ❤
I just got done with Red Winter and I loved it! Its a trilogy. Its got romance, fantasy, and adventure. Plus a lot of character growth. Definitely check it it. It is a hidden gem – wished more people read it!
Dresden Files and the Iron Druid
I would recommend the Gentlemen Bastards series but the books take sooooo long ;-;
Anything Sarah J. Maas 😀
Codex Alera, Mistborn, Stormlight Archive, Abhorsen, Wheel of Time
The October Daye series by Seanan McGuire. They are Urban Fantasy and so well done with twists and turns you don’t expect and sometimes near heartbreak. She is an amazing writer (who also writes under the name Mira Grant, who has written the best ever zombie apocalypse series you will ever read. And I recommend it to ANYONE, even if you think you hate zombie apocalypse stories. The first three books are the Newsfeed trilogy.) Also almost anything by Charles deLint.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. About an assassin who was caught and was in salt mines for a year, and then the prince gives her an opportunity of freedom if he fights for her in a competition to be the King’s Champion. It’s honestly my favorite book series ever, and I haven’t read anything to top it. There’s a lot that goes into it
Robert Jordan The Wheel of Time series. Epic beyond words.
I second that!!
Despite all its quirks I’m glad I read the series. It’s too bad Jordan died without finishing it because, although Sanderson did an excellent job I feel a lot of subtle sub-plots got abandoned.
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle–a classic.
Really enjoyed those books….. ?
Sanctuary series by Robert Asprin
Lord of the Rings and All Tolkein books about Middle Earth,Narnia,HP,A Song of Ice and Fire…
Used bookstore. “Camber of Culdi” by Katherine Kurtz. Then you’ll need to find the remaining 8 or 10 books in her Deryni series and read them in order of internal chronology.
Mine. The Tales of Earden.
Anything by casandra clare , shatter me series , the conspiracy of us
Anything by Brandon Sanderson ?
White aura series by felicia tatum!
Sarah J Maas
Maria V Snyder
