Fantasy……. Oh how I love thee!! There are just so many possibilities! Fantasies always find a way to completely remove you from your current time and place and put you somewhere you could only imagine. You go from sitting on your couch to riding unicorns, while casting spells and taking on an army of elves….. ok, seems outlandish, I know. But it’s fantasy….. anything can happen! This topic was covered in 2018 (find my top 10 fantasy list HERE) so this is a list that covers some of my more recent fantasy reads.
Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme where I explore different topics. If you are interested in participating I would love to have you! Here is a list of my Upcoming Topics in July – please remember to ping back a specific post of mine so I get a notification and I will add you to the participants list!
For so many years i’ve heard the hype about Mistborn……. the hype is read folks! Read this! Just read it! The magic system will forever go down as one of the most unique i’ve ever read. Putting metals into your body that awakens power and ability…. It’s just so good! Click HERE for my full review.
I’ve still yet to read the third book in this series, but DAMN! This is a great one! A group of people (The Reds) are living on Mars, mining materials for the future colonization of Mars. Little do they know, Mars is already a fully populated planet and they’re the lowest class. Things change when a revolt is in the air and leads to one of the most brutal and interesting spy plans I’ve ever read! The second book was just as brilliant! Click HERE for my full review.
If you’re looking for a fast paced book with a bad ass (and totally fearless) female, lots of political intrigue, and a school setting where the students are taught to maim and kill…. Here you go! This is quite hefty, but you’ll fly through it. The school setting was so well written and so was the main character! She’s terrifying actually! Click HERE for my full review.
This book was intense as hell but still found a way to be 100% humour and sarcasm. Every time the characters found themselves in life threatening situations (which was quite often!), there would be something thrown in there that would make you laugh so hard – it was a tension breaker and some comic relief as well. Another thing about this book – it was brilliant! The situations and plot were just so well thought out! You thought the characters were running on Plan A, but they had already moved on to Plan M without your knowledge. Click HERE for my full review.
If you’re looking for a series that oozes atmosphere – this is it! The climate throughout may be cold, but there’s something so warm and inviting about it. My absolute favourite thing about this series is the magical creatures and a girl who’s considered to want all the wrong things, finding her place in the world. Click HERE for my full review

There they are! My most recent fantasy favourites. I’ve been in a bit of a fantasy slump lately though. Maybe seeing everyones lists will get me back into it!
Note to participants – I will try my best to update the list as often as possible today but there may be a delay. My daughter is graduating grade 8 today!! It’s a day full of appointments and celebrations. Because of that, I know I won’t have time to comment – that doesn’t mean I love your lists any less!
Until next time, happy reading!
