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 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 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. 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. 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 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 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. 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 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 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 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!
I seriously love far, that’s one I’ve definitely got my eye on
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. ^_^
Thank you!! 🙂
Oh, I Love the cover for Vault of Dreams – it looks so intriguing! Will be taking a closer look at that on goodreads in a bit 🙂
For my very first own TTT post, I went with the good old classics:
It was definitely a great book and the author is really friendly!!
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 🙂
You definitely need to get around to them!! And pre order ABOVAM!!
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!
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 🙂
I’m glad to hear you enjoyed Snow Like Ashes, I’ve seen this book SO much but didnt give it a try, yet… maybe I will now! 🙂 Great list!
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!
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
LOVE ACOMAF!!! Like… omg! and My copy of EoS is arriving tomorrow and I have literally just finished Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi, so it was great timing!
How was furthermore?! I’ve been dying for it!
I absolutely loved it and the writing style! I thought the ending was a little to abrupt for my liking, but all in all I really enjoyed it! 🙂
I can’t wait to check it out! The cover is so cute 🙂
I love Fantasy as well, but this week I tried to switch it up a bit with some MG realistic fiction (hence only 6 picks). I really enjoyed Snow Like Ashes and Throne of Glass. My TTT link
I did think about doing a different topic, and then changed my mind!!
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!
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!
I used to read a lot of fantasy when I was younger, but I haven’t really kept up to date with more recent authors and titles. Your list has really got me wanting to dive back into fantasy again!!
You should! Fantasy is a great genre and I love it within the YA world!!
Love Throne of Glass. You’ve got some awesome books on your list!
Not heard of Vault of Dreams before, but it’s definitely going on the wishlist!
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! 😀
Thanks!! I do love any and all Maas books, so I’m looking forward to the post coming today!! 😀 I need to read the second book in the Snow Like Ashes Trilogy … and I hope you enjoy the Ines you added to your TBR! 🙂
I saw on Instagram you saying you’d been screwed by Amazon so I’m guessing it didn’t arrive today (or it did and I’m confusing your post with someone else’s, so many people have posted about EoS!)
Hopefully the rest of the Snow Like Ashes series is good for both of us, and thanks, I’m sure I will! 🙂
It was supposed to come today, but it didn’t and then they posted that it was going to get to me between the 3rd November and 23rd December – which is ludicrous for a book that I preordered!! So I cancelled the order and I’m just going to go to the bookstore at the weekend
Jesus Christ that’s terrible, also what in god’s name happened that it would take up until November/December to actually arrive with you! I would seriously consider complaining because like you said for a pre-order that’s just not right!
It is crazy!!! I phoned up about the money and got someone who doesn’t speak proper German! -.- I’m hoping three dark crowns goes better
It’s just been one thing after another hasn’t it. But yeah I’ll keep my fingers crossed Three Dark Crowns arrived quicker for you! 🙂
Well, hopefully they will have it at the bookstore tomorrow… if not, I may cry!
I’ll keep my fingers crossed that it’s there and waiting for you! 🙂
It wasn’t 😱😱😱😩😩😩😩
Oh no that sucks! Was your bookstore able to order it in for you or something? Or will they be getting new stock in soon?
They said it would take a while to get there and I was hoping to find it somewhere else but … no luck 😱😱
Hopefully you’ll find a copy soon! Think how good it will feel though when you finally manage to get your hands on a copy! 🙂
I know!! 😀
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!
Both series that I love!! I still need to read the last two books in the AA series, so hopefully I will get to those soon! 🙂
Oh boy, the last two were brutal, especially the last one. I think I barely survived reading it. I definitely think it’s going to be one of those series that I go back and read more than once.
I’ve been seeing that she’s doing audio books for Air Awakens right now and I’m really excited!
She is!! I don’t listen to audiobooks really, but I would be willing to give that one a try
I don’t listen to them very often but I’ve listened to a few before that I’ve enjoyed. So I’ve got my fingers crossed for these!
I tend to struggle with audiobooks, especially if I want to read the books at some point afterward!! All I hear is the voice from the audio and it bugs me
I usually only listen to audio books of books I’ve already read. I find it much easier to concentrate on the audio then.
Fair enough 🙂
I need to try Elise Kova! 🙂
Check out my TTT.
You should 🙂
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 😄
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!!
added a couple to my TBR list 🙂
Hope you enjoy them 🙂
