If you read my blog you'll know how much I love Tolkien's books. The world building he did with his books is incredible. So I though for this top ten Tuesday theme I would go with the top ten books to read if you like J.R.R. Tolkien. These will of course all be fantasy. None of them in my opinion measure up to the greatness of Tolkien but they are still good.
- The Princess and the Goblin by George McDonald- Speaking of which! ;)
- The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
- Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
- The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander
- The Dragon King series and others by Stephen R. Lawhead- Those are the only books of his I've read but I think he's more famous for others of his fantasy series.
- Binding of the Blade series by L.B. Graham
- Redwall series by Brian Jacques
- The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini- These aren't my favorite but I do think Paolini did a great job with world building and he had a good start with his first but then in my opinion they went downhill after that.
- The Wingfeather saga by Andrew Peterson
- The Dark is Rising series by Susan Cooper
Now a disclaimer. I know that George R.R. Martin and his Song of Fire and Ice series is widely acclaimed and considered great fantasy but I haven't read them and I won't read them because however good his books may be, he decided to also include inappropriate content in them.
So, any great fantasy novels you would include on this list? Comment and let me know!
