Hello again, bibliophiles!
I found this tag over at Kayla’s Wordsmithy (thank you!), and I thought that I’d give it a try! I haven’t given as much love to fantasy lately, so I figured this would be a nice change. The tag was originally created by The Book Worm Dreamer.
- Thank the person who tagged you and link back to their post

5 STAR BOOK
The last fantasy that I rated five stars was The Demon World, the sequel to The Smoke Thieves. I know I blab about this one a lot, but hey…
- Several butt-kicking women
What’s not to like?
ALWAYS GOING TO RECOMMEND
Leigh Bardugo’s Shadow and Bone trilogy is the ideal gateway to YA fantasy, and a richly-imagined, heart-pounding ride from start to finish.
OWN IT BUT HAVEN’T READ IT YET
Um….shoot, I think I’ll have to skip this one. Everything that I’ve bought recently I’ve already read, and not much of said book haul is fantasy.
WOULD READ AGAIN
I’m devastated that I borrowed Other Words for Smoke at the library, because this was an absolute MASTERPIECE.
IN ANOTHER WORLD
Fennbirn, the island setting of Three Dark Crowns is lush and rife with detailed mythology. A true feat of literature, in that respect, and an unforgettable series. The whole system with the Queens and their gifts is incredibly fascinating.
BACK ON EARTH
Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere (another five-star fantasy for me) is set in both the human city of London and London Below, a magical and unpredictable underbelly of the city, where all manner of strange creatures lurk. What a gem of a book ♥️
(Since I’ve already posted once today, just head over to this week’s Goodreads Monday if you’d like to see today’s song. 😉)
I tag anyone that would like to participate! I never know if the people I tag will end up participating in the tag, so I’ll just open it up to anyone who wants to. 🙂
Thanks so much for reading! Have a great rest of your day, and take care of yourselves!
