Three Fantasy Books You Should Read
For today’s Thursday Threes, I will be recommending three fantasy books I think you should read. I have read them, most I have read multiple times and so I think that everyone one should read them. And if you know me IRL, you’ll know that I have talked about them and I want you to read them! And I own these ones, rather than just checking them out from the library. Onto the books!
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern is one of the best fantasy novels I have ever read, and I have read a LOT of fantasy books! What I love most about this one and why I think everyone should read it, or at least listen to it, is because of Marco and Celia. They are the main characters and they are tied to each other from the very beginning. Their fates are literally entwined with one another, but they don’t let that dictate their lives. The magic is also simply beautiful, a wonderful clash of two different schools of learning, but both are still amazing! So good! You need to read this book!
The Emperor’s Soul by Brandon Sanderson is a short story set in his universe of the Cosmere. In this world, magic is worked through soulstamps. Stamps that are carved and when stamped onto an object, change the essence of that object. This gets our main character, Shai, in trouble but is also her saving grace when she is asked to do the one thing that she is in jail for; changing the essence of a living person.
Taproot by Keezy Young is such a cute graphic novel about a boy who sees ghost and the ghost that loves him. As Hamal works with his plants, something comes to town that brings some trouble; trouble that Blue is asked to help the reaper take care of, even if it means leaving the boy he loves. I just love how all of these characters interact and the small bits of magic that are integrated with technology in real life-ish. And it’s just a cute love story, life fanfiction-fluffy cute! You definitely need to read this one!
