Top Ten Books for Fantasy Readers of Every Age

I am switching it up a little bit this week, by recommending my favourite fantasy books from each age group.


1. The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan.

2. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis.

3. Bad Beginnings by Lemony Snicket.

Young Adult

I have chosen to leave things like Throne of Glass and Harry Potter off the list because they are super obvious choices.

1. The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton.

2. Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier.

3. Cinder by Marissa Meyer.

4. Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder.

Now I am cheating more than a little here, because I haven’t read any of these books, but they are up the top of my reading list so they ight as well be on everyone else’s list too. I chose to leave Lord of the Rings off of this list because its an obvious choice.

1. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.

2. The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson.

3. The Sandman by Neil Gaiman.

      • Very interesting! HDM inspired my skepticism as a teenager, which eventually led to my de-conversion to atheism, so I guess in that sense, it’s a great series for those who are religious and struggling with keeping their faith.
