It’s been what feels like a very long time since I properly dove into the great fantasy worlds, full of magic, castles, knights and epic wars. And there is a great variety of new and old fantasy series and standalones to choose from!
These are just a few of the books I’ve got my eye on for quite a long time. I would love to hear your thoughts on any of them in the comments down below!
1 – The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, the first book of the Stormlight Archive series. I’ve never read any Brandon Sanderson books and not sure if this is a good book to start with considering its grandiosity and the wait time between the installments, but it sounds incredibly interesting!
2 – The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, the first book of the Kingkiller Chronicles. This might be one of the most popular and wide-spoken books on this list. I’ve heard some very great and not so good reviews, but I am definitely intrigued enough to give it a try myself.
This huge brick is actually sitting on my shelves right now and I need to make some time for it!
3 – Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson, the first book of the Mistborn series. I have a feeling this list will have a lot of books by Brandon Sanderson. Maybe I should have made a post about all the Sanderson books I want to read?
Besides the obvious interest in this series, the white covers are absolutely stunning and will look very good on my Instagram feed!
4 – Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb – the first installment of the Farseer trilogy. Robin Hobb is another popular fantasy Author that I haven’t had a chance to read yet. I always see so many of her books in the stores, maybe there is a particular book I should read first? Hopefully some Robin Hobb experts will be reading my post!
5 – The Black Prism by Brent Weeks and his Lightbringer series. This one has been very popular on BookTube recently and all the talk sparked my interest. The books are once again ginormous, but hopefully the story reads fairly quick.
6 – Eragon by Christopher Paolini. There is a DRAGON! WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU NEED?! Maybe multiple dragons? Maye watching dragon movies while reading about dragons?? The possibilities are endless.
I would love to hear your thoughts on the books from this list and also some more recommendations (my TBR can never be big enough).
