Top Ten Tuesday


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and Bookish

Hey guys! It is time for another TTT. This weeks topic is top ten favourite books in X genre. I’ve decided to go fantasy, because that is what I read the most of! Without further ado and in no particular order:

10. vault of dreams Vault of Dreams by Luke Taylor. This book was lyrical in a way that I don’t think I will ever find again! I absolutely loved it!

9. throne of glass Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. Ok, I’m cheating a little bit and I am using the whole series for this! I absolutely adore this series and I cannot wait for tomorrow because my pre ordered copy of EoS is coming… a week late -.-

8. ACOMAF A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. This is turning into a Maas fest… No, whilst I liked the first in this series, I LOVED this one! I need the third book like… now!

7. bonds of venom and magic A Bond of Venom and Magic by Karen Tomlinson. This book releases next month (Oct 14th), but I received an ARC of this and it is my favourite read of this year! Heck, it’s up there with Maas as my favourite Fantasy of all time!! I need the next book… but the author is evil and isn’t releasing it till next year!! Plus, this cover is gorgeous! I want a poster for my wall!

6. emerge- The awakening Emerge: The Awakening by Melissa A. Craven. I definitely think this book is underrated! The next book in this series is releasing at the end of this year and it cannot come soon enough!! Talk about needing a book!

5. air awakens Air Awakens by Elise Kova. I have read the first three in this series and I am hooked! I am hoping to be able to read the fourth soon… the ending of the third book broke me inside, which is probably why I waited so long! I don’t think my heart can take much more!

4. first year The Black Mage: First Year by Rachel E. Carter. ummm… I think anyone who has read this will know it is epic! This is not your normal wishy washy magic – this is serious business!!

3. spelled Spelled by Betsy Schow. This book had me in stitches! I couldn’t breathe I was laughing so hard!! The author is releasing what looks like the second book in this series early next year, so I am preparing my lungs and my diaphragm for this!

2. snow like ashes Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch. I loved this book. It has me hooked from the get go! I have the second book in this series, which I am definitely looking forward to picking up! Even if I hate the rest of this series, I will always love this book!

1. defy Defy by Sara B. Larson. Whoever hasn’t read this series clearly lives under a rock! A very large one at that! This is one of my all time faves and I love the colour schemes on the covers!

So this is it!! These are my favourite fantasy reads ever!! Have you read any of these books? Did you enjoy them?

Which favourite books do you have on your lists? Feel free to leave links and comments and I will check them all out!

    So I decided to do favourites that weren’t fantasy because all I read is fantasy but I’ve really been enjoying reading the fantasy top tens as its given me a better perspective of what everyone else likes to read.

    I really enjoyed the different books and series you’ve included that I have now added to my ever growing fantasy TBR

      I do love reading what everyone else loves! Especially because you can find so many hidden gems that you never even knew about!! I hope you enjoy the ones you added to your TBR! 🙂 Definitely check out A bond of Venom and Magic – I think that is one you will love!

  2. Monique Snyman says:

    YES! YES! YES! A hundred times yes! Love your list and I totally would have picked most of these if I did fantasy, too. Wonderful. ^_^

  3. lindseyhabets says:

    Great list! I love fantasy too, so we have some favorites in common 🙂 Those I haven’t read yet are still on my TBR like Air Awakens, Spelled and Defy. You definitely also got me excited about A Bond of Venom and Magic 🙂

  4. Cait @ Paper Fury says:

    Fantasy is my #1 favourite genre too!! *hi fives* And I LOVED Snow Like Ashes so so much (although I wasn’t as enamoured with the sequel sadly, although I’ve heard the finale is amazing so that’s A RELIEF. 😉 Plus I really want to read Spelled someday!!
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

    • lry93 says:

      I’ve heard the the second book suffers second book syndrome, but the third is pretty good, so hopefully, it will be enjoyable! You should! It was hilarious 🙂

    • lry93 says:

      You should!! The First book is amazing! I have heard that the second books suffers the syndrome, but that the third book is an epic ending!! Hopefully I will enjoy it!

  5. alicesbookvault says:

    yes yes yes!!! Throne of Glass and Air Awakens! I still need to read ACOMAF but I need a recap on ACOTAR first before I start it. I’m just currently reading Empire of Storms and then maybe I’ll get to it!! Great list!! My TTT

  6. Jamie Wu says:

    Yay for Throne of Glass. I’m sure Empire of Storm will be an enjoyable ride 🙂 Excited to hear your thoughts on it.
    😱 I’ve been living under a huge rock! No wonder I’ve been having backaches. I’ve never heard of Defy before. Thanks for remedying that 🙂 To the TBR it goes!

    • lry93 says:

      I am so stoked for tomorrow!! Thank god Amazon have finally decided to send me my PRE ORDERED book!! *sigh* and I literally just finished furthermore by Tahereh Mafi, so it was perfect timing!! And you deserve the backache!! How have you never heard of Defy! Go grab a copy!

  7. Beth (Reading Every Night) says:

    These are some great picks for this week Lauren! I’m a massive fantasy fan as well and a few books you’ve picked I haven’t heard of so I’ll be adding them to my to-read list. I do really really love the Throne of Glass series and the ACOTAR books as well (like you I much prefer the ACOTAR series over the Throne of Glass books) I hope you enjoy Empire of Storms, the wait will definitely be worth it! 😀
    Also I have Snow Like Ashes on my to-read list for this month. I read it a while back and given the third book is coming out soon I need to read the second and re-read the first before! 😀

  8. NightGirl says:

    Air Awakens!! ACOMAF!! I love both so much, sosososo much. I’m so sad that the Air Awakens series is over already. I am so not ready for it to be over. And I can’t wait for more ACOMAF! Though I feel like it’s going to be my favourite book of the series.

    My TTT ft. Aliens!

  9. Elin says:

    I only read the first book in the Throne of glass. Have the second one. So hope to start that soon. I’m little bit behind when it comes to this series 😄

    • lry93 says:

      I know a few people who are, so it’s all good!! I actually just had beef with Amazon about my EoS order -.- I pre ordered it, I was supposed to get t today, but then they told me that I am going to get it between 3 November and 23 December … it was a pre order!! Months waiting time is crazy!!
