Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.
I have a few non-blogger friends of mine that are book-pushers like no others. They pretty much read solely adult fantasy books, so there will be a TON on here from that genre.
1. A Feast for Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire, #4) by George R.R. Martin
One of my non-blogger friends got me into this series about three years ago and ever since I finished book 3 around Christmas of last year, she’s been bugging me to buy this book and read it! Now, my other friend started the series earlier this year and she’s already about to start book 4…clearly I need to stay ahead of her and read this one very soon. I mean, I must know what happens before her!
2. Prince of Thorns (The Broken Empire, #1) by Mark Lawrence
Same friend I mentioned above keeps telling me that I have no excuse not to read this one because 1) it’s really short, and 2) it has a main character that is worse than Joffery that I will love to hate even more than Joffery. Really, I don’t know why I haven’t started this series yet.
3. The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #1) by Patrick Rothfus
I have this one to add thanks to my same adult fantasy pushing friend! But not only her, I’ve heard amazing things about it from people on BookTube and around the blogosphere.
4. Mistborn (Mistborn, #1) by Brandon Sanderson
Another one that I’ve seen around BookTube and everyone that has read has basically told everyone to go out and buy it this instant. So, clearly I’m missing out on something big here.
5. The Way of Kings (The Stormlight Archive, #1) by Brandon Sanderson
Another one my friend has been telling me to read for quite a long time. Brandon Sanderson is supposed to be an amazing fantasy author so I’m really eager to check both of these two by him out!
6. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
I haven’t read this one. And everyone tells me to read this and I feel ashamed that I haven’t. I tried reading it, I really did. It just didn’t engage me early on, and I lost patience.
7, 8, & 9. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien
Nope, haven’t read this one either. After I tried The Hobbit I’m now scared that these books will be the same way… :O
10. Graceling (Graceling Realm, #1) by Kristin Cashore
Everyone says that Kristin Cashore’s books are amazing, and I OWN this one and Fire, but I still haven’t read them. I’m nervous because they’ve been recommended so much, but I hope when I do get to them I won’t be let down!
What books have you been told you MUST read?
