1. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo: I honestly don't read a ton of fantasy (something I'm trying to change because I do enjoy it when I read it) but I LOOOVED this book! I desperately am trying to wait to read book 2 closer to when we get book 3!
2. The Girl of Fire & Thorns by Rae Carson: I read this on my honeymoon and it was one of my first fantasy books ever and I was just so absorbed into this story and loved Elisa!
3. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer: I love love love this series! It's my favorite fairytale retelling. The way that the characters and the story all weave together is amazing.
4. Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay: Another retelling. And I LOVE it! Beauty and the Beast has always been my favorite Disney, and then they took it and changed it and it's just as good! I love the world that the author created, and I fell in love with the characters.
5. Young Wizards Series by Diane Duane: I stumbled across this... oh, about 10 years ago? I love this series so much. They take magic and explain how and why it works with a bit of science. Plus, the author is a total astronomy geek which makes everything richer in detail. My favorite bookish quote comes from the first book. "Reading one book is like eating one potato chip."
6. The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson: This does not come out until to July, but seriously guys. This book is amazing, and about halfway through your mind will be blown in a way you never would have thought.
7. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas: You agree, right!? AMAZING.
8. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling: I just read this for the first time last month, and OH MY. What took me so long!?!
9. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis: Again, just read this last month and it is SO MAGICAL!
10. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss: I just love this series. It is so interesting and not slog-y (if that makes any sense). Kvothe is a wonderful main character who is so darn intriguing. I cant wait to find out more of his story in both the present and the past. It's a book I didn't think I would like, but ended up really enjoying.
