I’m very excited about this week’s topics because I love fantasy books. I’m always looking for new recommendations, so if you have any recs, please tell me about them! Science fiction isn’t quite up my lane though. However if you think that I might be interested in a book, you’re welcome to leave me a comment as well.
Here’s my list (there isn’t is any particular order)! Clicking on the book titles will take you to their Goodreads page.
A princess who sacrifices herself to become the bride of an evil king. A slave who is finally free to do what she wants. A quest to find a library that can change their fates.
Why I want to read it: It’s inspired by Indian mythology. There are two female protagonists – TWO. And it features a library!
Taj is the most-talented sin-eater indentured to the mages. A talent that results in the guilt of sin appearing on his mind and on his body. A talent that results in him becoming involved in a political conspiracy.
What I want to read it: The idea of sin being something tangible is fascinating.
This is book two of the Djinn-Son Duology. Here’s my review for Fire Boy.
I’m not going to summarise the blurb because I don’t want you to see spoilers.
Why I want to read it: The first book was amazing and I truly fell in love with the world of djinns that Sami Shah created. Wahid has asthma and it’s really cool to read about someone with asthma in a fantasy novel!
Persephone finds more than freedom, when she takes up Hades’ offer to come the land of the dead. She finds love.
The first two sentences of the blurb won me over. “Three thousand years ago, a god told a lie. Now, only a goddess can tell the truth.”
Why I want to read it: I’ve always been fascinated by the intricacy of the story between Hades and Persephone, so a retelling that includes an f/f romance seems to be right up my street. Hades doesn’t kidnap Persephone!
This is the companion book to The Star-Touched Queen. You can see my review for the first book here.
Even though it’s a companion book, it is also a sequel, so I won’t be summarising this blurb either.
Why I want to read it: Hopefully more breath-taking saree descriptions. One of the main characters of this book, was a favourite character of mine in the first. The first book was awesome!
Which fantasy books are on your TBR? Do you know of any books that you think I should read?
