Top 5 Tuesday – Top Fantasy Books

Happy Tuesday! This week, the topic for Top 5 Tuesday is Best Fantasy! I found this so hard to narrow down to just 5, but somehow I managed to do it!

Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah – The Bionic Bookworm. If you want to take part head over to her page to find out how!


Harry Potter

Okay, lets get the best one out of the way shall we!?! This has to be one of the best fantasy series ever!


The Hunger Games

My second favourite series after Harry Potter!


A Game of Thrones

Now here’s the thing…. I’ve only read the first book and that was before the TV show. So, I found it SO hard to keep up with all the different families. Now that I’ve watched the TV show, I think I’d find it easier to read the books. And even though I’ve only read one of the books, it was AMAZING. And if the TV show is anything to go by, the rest of the books are going to be amaing too.


The Chronicles of Narnia

One of my childhood favourites! I used to wish that this magical world was real SO SO bad. And even though I’m 28 now… the Snow Queen still gives me a creep.


The Time Travellers Wife

This is a bit of a soppy one. It’s one of the only romance books I love. I loved the whole time travelling aspect to it. And whilst the film wasn’t as good as the book, I still enjoyed it.

Add yours

  1. I feel bad for not adding Harry Potter to my list, but I felt like it was totally obvious for me. I need to try and read The Time Travellers Wife again. I tried reading it many years ago and I just didn’t understand what was happening so I gave up. Now that I know what is happening I might actually enjoy it


  2. A Song of Ice and Fire series is so worth the read! The TV show has gone beyond the books now, a weird instance of the source material being ‘behind’ the timeline of the show. When you go back to the series and if you still find it hard to keep up with the number of characters, families etc. (there are loads in epic fantasy) you could keep a ‘cheat sheet’: when you meet a new character etc, take a moment at the end of the chapter make a note of them. Then, if you forget who they are later on, a quick glance at your Cheat Sheet will save you – hopefully it will help you enjoy it more too.
