You are what you read – Fantasy

17 10 2012

Following on from my list of favorite science fiction books, thought I’d take a few minutes to run through some of my favourite fantasy. Once again feel free to consider it a recommended reading list. In no particular order:

The Hobbit & LOTR
The Pern novels – Anne McCaffery
Most books by Charles De Lint especially Moonheart and The Little Country
Game of Thrones – George RR Martin
Dancing Jax – Robin Jarvis
Legend – David Gemmell
His Majesty’s Dragon – Naomi Novik
Sword of Shanarra – Terry Brooks
Sword of Truth series – Terry Goodkind (especially the one with the girl in the red leather outfit)
Wheel of Time – Robert Jordan (got fed up after about six or seven)
The Belgariad series – David Eddings
Memory, Sorrow & Thorn series – Tad Williams
The Heroes – Joe Abercrombie

I’m sure there’s more. So I’ll update this list in the future.

I’d rather ‘be’ what I read – fantasy at that – rather than what I eat!!

Shame on me – I only knew of The Hobbit…
