Five Fall Favorites // Top 5 Fantasy Finds

Happy Day 2 of Five Fall Favorites, and one of my absolute favorite genres…

Today we’re talking about Fantasy! I love how weird, and wild, and various this genre can get. Everything from fairies to semi-medieval settings, parallel universes to extra special powers… There’s something for everyone, and often a world far removed from our own can end up feeling even more like home and cause us to examine themes in a whole new light. 🧑

Today we’re all sharing our top 5 fantasy books… (Just a heads up, some of our bloggers may have chosen to use one of our genre alternates, so don’t be surprised. πŸ˜‰ )

Go forth on an adventure!

My Top 5 Favorite Fantasy Finds

1. Song of the Sword by Hope Ann

Absolutely beautiful, full of strong allegorical elements, and wistfully mysterious, this book is the one that got me into the Legends of Light series. Definitely recommend. πŸ˜‰ (Read my review.)

2. Princess Academy by Shannon Hale

One of the most wholesome, beautifully written books, and I’m forever in love with the mountain, Peder, and the strong supportive friendships between the main characters. ❀ I also really enjoyed book two. πŸ˜‰ (Read my review.)

3. Shallows by Denver Evans (a.k.a. Perry Kirkpatrick)

This book is just VIBESSSS. I honestly love it so much. A hauntingly gorgeous fantasy world with adorably shippable main characters, this trilogy starts out as fluff and gets deeper and deeper as it goes, handling themes of mental health, chronic illness, and identity. (Read my review.)

4. The Warden and the Wolf King by Andrew Peterson

This is actually the forth book in the Wingfeather Saga, so beware of spoilers if you look it up. πŸ˜‰ It does a beautiful job tying up the entire series with humor and heart, but some of the last few scenes gave me absolute chills and strengthened my faith. ❀ (I won’t share my review here, because #spoilers, but check out the whole series, please. πŸ˜‰ )

5. The Glass Sentence by S.E. Grove

This is a criminally underrated trilogy so I’ll never stop recommending it. It has some of the most unique worldbuilding ever, and the characters are really lovable and easy to root for. πŸ˜‰ I especially loved how nerdy it got with all the fantasy forms of cartography. (Read my review.)

  1. I haven’t read any of these except the Wingfeather Saga (I follow an artist on FB who did AMAZING character art of the kids.) Lol, but now I’m intrigued by the other books, especially the Glass Sentence.
