Halloween is tomorrow, and I’m doing a series of three posts where I’m sharing some of my favourite ‘spooky’ reads! In case you missed it, you can check out the first post here, where I share my fave paranormal books.
Here are some fantasy books that I love:
The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
This is one of my favourite series of all time; it’s right up there with Rachel Caine’s Morganville Vamps series! I think of City of Bones as being the book that made me the avid bookworm I am today, and I will always hold it close to my heart for that. Cassandra Clare has created a magical world hidden within our own, and it’s spectacular.
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
This novel is just beautiful. I adore Rainbow Rowell, particularly because she brings a wonderful sense of realism to everything she writes – even this fantasy novel. If you read this book, prepare yourself for the feels!
Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
This series is just wonderful. I love it so much – the characters, the plot, everything is amazing in these books. I love mythology, particularly Greek, and wish there were more YA books featuring elements of it. Josephine Angelini is a very talented author, so if you like Greek mythology, you should definitely read this!
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
The first book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series is amazing, but it has nothing on the stunning sequel. I struggle to find the words to talk about this book, so here is a helpful gif:
All I can say about this book is read it. You won’t regret it, trust me.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Leigh Bardugo is one ace author – to not only create the world of the Grisha, but to then pull off a plot like this one? Amazing. I’m in awe! Six of Crows was a great read, and I hope to read the sequel to it soon!
