Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week, you make a list of ten books surrounding a certain topic. This week, I’m showing books I’d recommend to anyone who loves to read about magic and wizardry! I could probably make a list of 50 books to recommend in this aspect, but I HAD TO NARROW IT DOWN. And it wasn’t easy. At all. Let’s get into it!
The titles of the books will take you to their Goodreads page.
The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
I know. This is an extremely obvious choice. But it is the first book that comes to mind and that I would recommend, so I felt like I HAD to include it!
Eragon (The Inheritance Cycle #1) by Christopher Paolini
This is another one of my childhood favorites. I’ve been wanting to reread this for a while and I might do that soon. But this book got me into reading again when I’d stopped reading for a while when I was 12.
Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1) by Sarah J. Maas
Another obvious choice, yes. But guys, this series is SO good!
The Spirit Thief (The Legend of Eli Monpress #1) by Rachel Aaron
Okay, this series is so much fun! I read it in a month -there are 5 books in the series. If you know me, you know that’s quite the accomplishment because I usually don’t binge-read series.
The Final Empire (Mistborn #1) by Brandon Sanderson
I adored this book. I really should continue on with the series -and check out all of his other books. Why haven’t I?
Eon (Eon #1) by Alison Goodman
I read this one quite a while ago, but it was such a good read. And it’s a duology!
The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater
I don’t really know how to describe these books. But if I had to choose one word, it would be magical.
Theft of Swords (Riyria Revelations #1-2) by Michael J. Sullivan
Magic isn’t the most prominent aspect of this book but it is included. And it’s such a good read so I really wanted to include it.
The Magicians’ Guild (Black Magician #1) by Trudi Canavan
Another great trilogy that I feel like isn’t mentioned enough. Guys, Trudi Canavan is a great writer!
The Paper Magician (Paper Magician #1) by Charlie N. Holmberg
I discovered this last year -thanks to Netgalley- but really enjoyed it! I especially loved the magic system, how every magician has their element.
So those are my Top Ten choices for this week! If you made a list, please leave a link down below, I’d love to check it out.
