This week on Top Ten Tuesday we are recommending books for book clubs. This could be a book club based off of a genre, author, etc.
I don’t think I have ever been a part of a book club. Yep…never. So maybe my list is a bit ridiculous, but I think that these books would be awesome to throw into a book club that focuses on Fantasy. I think that a lot of these books would lead to some great discussions on the stories that they may be based off of, the roles of women, and the development of characters as well as many other things. So, here are some books that I would love to add to the list for a Fantasy book club…
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman * Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay * Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce * The Impostor Queen by Sarah Fine * The Glass Arrow by Kristen Simmons * The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen * A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess * Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo * The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh * The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor
When looking through my books I tried to make it so that not EVERY single one was the start of a series (meaning that honestly only 3 of them aren’t the start to the series and I am so sorry, but one is just a duology and quite a few are just trilogies). I wanted to try to find ones that not EVERYONE was talking about. Even though I would have loved to include Throne of Glass or Harry Potter, I decided that they were too high up in the popularity to be on there (but I had to include Shadow and Bone. I just fell so hard in love with it and I couldn’t leave it off the list). Obviously there are so many other books that I could choose, but these are the ten I happened to choose today.
What books would you add to a fantasy book club, adult and YA?
