Top Ten Tuesday #1: Top 10 Books I Can't Believe I Haven't Read From the Fantasy Genre

Top 10 Books I Can't Believe I Haven't Read From the Fantasy Genre

Red Rising: Its cover is the main reason I haven't picked it up (Yes, I judge books by its cover. As a design student, I am drawn to pretty things and run from ugly/cheesy designs) BUT I am definitely going to give this book a go some time this year. I heard so many good things about it! 

City of Ashes: I read City of Bones and it was pretty average (3 stars for me) so I didn't continue even though I have the first 4 books in the series on my bookshelf. I am thinking about giving it another go! Let me know if you think I should :) 

Eragon: Not a huge fan of dragons but I've heard so much about this series! I hope to get to this in my lifetime. :P 

Daughter of Smoke & Bone: I just never got around to reading this and now that the trilogy is complete, I should really check out this series!

The Lightning Thief: Ordered the box set from Amazon for a really good price! Can't wait to start on this!

Ender's Game: I have no idea why I never read this. Ordered this a couple of weeks back, I should be getting it this week! :)

The Final Empire: Will receive my copy this week, can't wait to read it!

A Game of Thrones: I am up to date with the TV series but the size of the books scare me. I will muster up the courage to read this, eventually.

1984: I've been meaning to read this for YEARS but the pretty covers are always so expensive :(

The Raven Boys: This series sounds amazing, I really need to get to it!
I would love to see your Top Ten Tuesday posts! Leave your link below and I will surely visit your blogs. :)


  1. You must read City of Bones!
    And I want to read Red Rising too!

    My TTT: http://frannieinthepages.blogspot.it/2015/02/top-ten-tuesday-ten-books-i-cant.html

    1. I read City of Bones but didn't continue on, I might get back into it though.

      Thanks for dropping by! :)

  2. Thanks for stopping by and following! I'm following you now, too :)

    I've read seven of these books and they're all up there in my favourites. I highly recommend The Raven Cycle and A Song of Ice and Fire series - those two are my absolute favourite series :) I'm not too sure whether I'll ever read 1984, but The Lightening Thief is on my TBR, too.
    I'm reading Red Rising right now and, oh my days, it's wonderful! I hope you enjoy it and all the other books when you get around to reading them!

    1. Sounds like we have similar tastes! :P I will definitely check them out asap :)

      Thanks for the follow!

  3. I felt the same way about City of Bones. But oh my Daughter of Smoke and Bone!! This was stands shoulders above all the rest. Even Raven Boys and the Lightning Thief (which are really really good too).

  4. I've heard so many good things about Red Rising! The Percy Jackson series is so much fun! I hope you love it!
    Thanks for stopping by The Local Muse

  5. I feel bad I've not even read half of the books on your list, I have read Daughter of Smoke and Bone and adored it. I strongly recommend it to you. I hope you get a chance to read it.
