  1. New authors! Yay! I haven't read the books written by Kristin Cashore, but I really want too. :) But, I do keep hearing that the list book in the trilogy sucks. Oops. :(

    J'adore Happy Endings

  2. Great list! Love Tolkien! :D My TTTs are at Musings on Fantasia and LKHill. Happy Tuesday! :D

  3. Awesome list.. some of them are my favourites too!
    Here's my TTT

  4. We share two! I need to start reading Sookie Stackhouse books, I've had them for ages... :X

  5. I love Rowling and Harris as well.
    I wasn't a fan of Mercy though.
    I read the novella to Brigid Kemmerer's series, need to read the first novel.

    Micheline @ Lunar Rainbows

  9. I look forward to read the books by Marissa Meyer. J. K. Rowling is of course fantastic. Harry Potter is the best series made ever. Mai Lene (onemoreperfectday.blogspot.com)

  10. No fantasy list is complete without J.K Rowling! Marissa Meyer is on my list as well, even when I used a different genre. I love Cinder :) Rebecca Lim's & Kristin Cashore's series are high on my TBR pile. Great list!

    TTT fairytale authors @thedailyprophecy

  12. I love fantasy, but I never know which books to read! I am definitely going to reference this list for my next fantasy read.

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

    ~Nikki (Imaginative Adventure)

  13. Great list! I've heard Storm is awesome but I had no idea it was fantasy! And Cashore's Graceling Realm series is just fantastic!

  14. I love David Eddings! I started reading him in early high school and I love re-visiting his worlds :)

  15. Yay! Fantasy-junkies!!! Sorry I got a little carried away that we chose the same category.

    Anyway... Alexandra Bracken? Yes! Kristin Cashore? Absolutely Yes! As much as I hate to admit it, but I haven't read any of J.K. Rowling's books (I can feel an angry mob assembling behind me...help!), else I would've put her on my list too.

    Great list! Thanks for checking out my top ten. :)

    Janus @ The Blair Book Project

  16. Totally agree on Kemmerer, Rowling, and Marissa Meyer! I've got to check out some of these others, though. :) And I need to finish the Graceling Realm series. Great list!

  17. I've been dying to read Cinder and the Darkest Minds looks great! Of course, I totally agree with Kristin Cashore and J.K. Rowling. (:
