Epic Fantasy series I am interested in!

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.


7 – I opened this post with Brandon Sanderson book, so it is only fair if I end the post with the same Author, namely – Elantris and Warbreaker.



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).

With love,

  1. Eurgh, lots of Sanderson! I only read the first Mistborn book of his and while I enjoyed it I didn’t feel the need or want to read any more of his work. But, lots of people love him.

    The Name of The Wind is awesome!

    Ah, Robin Hobb is a woman!😂 Assassin’s Apprentice is definitely the first book to start with though as it’s the first book in the Farseer trilogy which is the first realm of the elderlings and it’s great.😀👌

  3. Name of the Wind is a book that divides people. They either love it or hate it! Personally I’m on the hate it side, but that’s because it just wasn’t for me. His writing is very beautiful.

    I absolutely love Sanderson. Mistborn is great, but The Way of Kings is so much stronger! The benefit of Mistborn is that the books are written in trilogies and there are two that are complete! The Way of Kings won’t be done for a very long time.

  4. Paolini’s Inheritance Cycle series is good but those Robin Hobb books are great! Best to start with the Farseer books, you’re featuring the first one above. It has a slow build, but it pays off. Eragon has some slow spots too, but it’s good.

  5. Name of the Wind is one of the best fantasy books I’ve read, I think. It’s amazing, but be prepared that the third book in the series isn’t out yet and there’s no expected publication date for it either…

    I enjoyed the Mistborn series, I was recommended it after finishing Name of the Wind.

    1. Yea, I heard that about the third book in the Name of the Wind series, that’s why I’m not in a big rush to start it. Besides, the books are HUGE! 😀

      I want to read Mistborn soon, but I also want to finish the Reckoners series before I start any other Brandon Sanderson book.
