I am a big fan of Fantasy Fiction but I am also very particular and picky about which books and series I choose to read, and eventually which books I like.


Here are the top 2 Fantasy Fiction books on my TBR:

Outlander
 
by Diana Gabaldon 

I have nearly started this series SO many times, and I keep kicking myself for still not having started it. I have wanted to read it for so long, and have extremely high hopes for it, I just hope that I will love it as much as I anticipate.

 

 


Outlander
 is a New York Times bestseller, and has earned the praise of critics and captured the hearts of millions of fans. The story introduces two great characters, Claire Beauchamp Randall and Jamie Fraser, in a spellbinding novel of passion and history that combines exhilarating adventure with a love story for the ages.

Rated 4.6 on amazon.com

raceling 
by Kristin Cashore

This book was recommended to me by a fellow blogger, and once I checked it out, it quickly made it to my list of books to read.
Another best seller and award winner.

 

 

 

Graceling tells the story of the vulnerable yet strong Katsa, a smart, beautiful teenager who lives in a world where selected people are given a Grace, a special talent that can be anything from dancing to swimming. Katsa’s is killing. She is forced to use her extreme skills as his thug. Along the way, Katsa must learn to decipher the true nature of her Grace.

Rated 4.3 on amazon.com

Have you read either of these books,
what did you think?
No spoilers please 😉

  1. Sorry to say but I found Outlander boring. I can’t get very far into it before I turn to something else. But it’s hugely popular, so I must be unusual 🙂

  2. I absolutely loved the Outlander series!! The characters stick with you and keep you reading. It took me awhile to actually sit down and read these books, but when I did I was not disappointed. I got many of my friends hooked on the series as well. It’s best to spread out the reading, not binge on all of them at once.

  3. I pretty much devoured all of Cashore’s books so far, and I loved them all. Graceling is definitely worth a read. So is Fire. And Bitterblue. And…yeah, just all of Cashore. 😄

    I just started Outlander a week ago, actually, but I had to switch out the hardcover for the audiobook because it is a slow read, IMO, and I’ve already started reading another 800+ page read. I expect a slow-burning romance, which is nice to see from time to time. It also helps that I get to hear the Scottish brogue in the audiobook, haha.
