The Quick Fire Fantasy Book Tag!

Hello! I was tagged in this by the lovely Dini over at Dini Panda Reads last month and it looked like so much fun, so I’m glad I’m finally taking part. I can already tell this is going to be a mega hard tag for me, picking just one book for these prompts is going to be nearly impossible but I will try my best!

Rules

  • Thank the person who tagged you and link back to their post
  • Link to the creatorโ€™s blog (thebookwormdreamer.wordpress.com) in your post
  • Answer the prompts below โ€“ all fantasy books!
  • Tag 5 others to take part
  • Enjoy!

5 Star Book

I still think this is one of the easiest 5 stars I’ve ever given to a book. There was simply nothing about it I disliked, and Harrow has this absolutely magical writing style that just drags you head first into her stories. It’s a rare book that gives me goosebumps, but this was one of them and I fell in love with this story of suffrage and witchcraft and the characters that inherit it. I was already a Harrow fan, but this book made sure that any of her future works were an instant add to my TBR.

Always Going to Recommend

I remember reading this last year and thinking this has no right to be this good and a debut at the same time. I don;t think I’ve ever fallen so swiftly for a story, or the characters who inherit it, but suffice to say by the end of the book Juliette Cai had my whole heart. I’ve actually recommended it to a few friends already, one of which has read and loved it. It’s rare that one book will put an author on my auto-buy list, but I will read anything that Gong decides to grace us with.

Own It But Haven’t Read It Yet

Having read, and loved, Parry’s Magicians series I really have no good reason for not picking this up, other than mu shit show of a TBR. It honestly sounds like it would be the perfect book for me, a story about a book character that escapes from the pages… what reader wouldn’t be interested in that. I’m hoping to pick this up before the end of the year, so keep your fingers crossed for me.

Would Read Again

All of them? No, but seriously I used to be a prolific re-reader until I discovered arc’s and then that swiftly went down the drain. At this time of the year now, or really any time tbh, I can think of no better series to re-read. These books absolutely blew me away and I quickly fell in love with Vasya. It’s been years since I originally read the series, and I would love to pick them up so I could re meet all the characters and experience Vasya’s world again.

In Another World

The City of Brass

This has to be one of my all time favourite series. I love reading about other cultures mythology and the Daevabad series has it in spades, as well as a fantastic cast of complicated and sometimes morally grey characters. The scope in both the characters and world building is astounding, and has one of the sweetest and slowest burning romances ever! ( I know this is slightly cheating because some of the series is set in Cairo, but I’m classing Daevabad as another world so there!)

Back on Earth

I only read this book earlier in the year, but it quickly made it’s way onto the list of my all time favourites. Cordova’s lyrical writing really brings this story to life and manages to make the story both wishful, magical and sometimes a little scary. I fell in love with the characters and story that she created, and loved the what she used multiple pov’s and two different era’s to bring together a story about family, love and generational curses.

I won’t be tagging anyone specifically, but please feel free to take part if you fancy it!
