Ten Books For Readers Who Like Fictional Fantasy Worlds

top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme brought to us by the wonderful bloggers from The Broke and the Bookish. We’re doing Ten Books For Readers Who Like _________. Blank being anything we want and I chose Fictional Fantasy Worlds *surprise, surprise* right? How exciting! Let’s do this! I tried to provide a map whenever possible … and when a book has a map, you know it’s going to be serious and good!

    Good idea including maps! I love GoT (even though I’ve only read the first two books). I knew when I read the title that Harry Potter and Narnia had to be on here. Great list 🙂 And great blog, I’ve followed you!

    This was such a fun list Anjeline! Some of these books I haven’t heard of but I’m certainly going to check them out 😀 Here’s my TTT if you would like to check it out 😀 http://emmasbookery.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/top-ten-books-for-readers-who-love.html


  3. I just love it when a fantasy novel comes with a map. It’s just a nice introduction to a new world.

    I love your choice for this post! I was a HUGE fan of the Chronicles of Narnia and the Lord of the Rings series years ago. But, for whatever reason, I’ve gotten out of the habit of reading fantasies published in more recent years. After seeing the Throne of Glass books on so many Top Ten lists this week, I’m definitely going to add it to my list of TBR.

    Oh, I have GOT to get my hands on the new Harry Potter books! I love The Neverending Story.



  7. Kat and I did two different forms of fantasy this week, too. YAY fantasy. Ummmmm and I love that you included maps!!! ToG, Graceling, S&B, Defiance, GOF&T (also on my list!), Narnia, The Pledge, The Hobbit, Harry…I love all of these! Someday I’ll love GoT, but not until it’s complete!
