My Dance with Literature: Fantasy Fiction

I like books.
I like reading.
I love fantasy and enjoy a good mystery.

Browsing Tumblr, I stumbled upon this literary gem:

Daughter of Smoke and Bone, by Laini Taylor.

Reading the description, I was immediately intrigued by the mystery and darkness the series conveys. I decided to buy this book, the first in the series, to delve into the story and concept.

Exploring the Fantasy Fiction genre on Amazon, I came across:

The Lost Hero (The Heroes of Olympus), by Rick Riordan.

Since this one is the first in the series, I read a sample of the first chapters. I was immediately hooked! I love mythology and allusions to ancient lore, so I had to pick this one up as well.

Since I’m taking a break from the A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) series, I thought I’d fill the void with more light-hearted and less confusing (hopefully) novels.

Happy reading!

  1. If you ever are in the mood for MORE confusing literature, I recommend Tad Williams’ Otherland series. If you’re in the mood for a darker novel with an emphasis on world-building I suggest Incarceron. And…if you like female protagonists, pick up anything by Mercedes Lackey, if you haven’t already.

    • Thanks! I’ve recently gotten into this specific type of fiction, and it’s quite interesting to me. I’ll definitely check out the authors you’ve suggested on amazon and at Barnes and Noble!
