Do you love fantasy? What are some of your favorite genres? 


  1. Wonderful list. I have read all but the Eragon series. I tried but could never get into it. Other than that, I completely agree.

    Here's my TT: http://amandalynsbooks.blogspot.com/2012/01/top-ten-tuesdays-books-id-recommend-to.html

  2. Ever since harry potter High fantasy seems to fall flat with me in books (movies is another story) I tend to lean more towards Dystopians now (which are a hit and miss as well) and some Young young adult/juvenile/ middle grade which can be really good I love Rick Riordan and currently am going to read the Read pyramid soon

    The book I'm reading right now is Breadcrumbs http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10637959-breadcrumbs and so far its really good and really fantasy so yeah

    1. I've heard of Breadcrumbs. It looks really good. Let me know what you think of it/leave me a link if you review it!

  3. The Phantom Tollbooth and Percy Jackson are on my list too!

  4. I've never seen anyone else mention The Great Good Thing before! I thought that was such a cute book. Glad to see it on your list :)


Your comments brighten my day. :)
