The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale: This book is based of the fairy tale, but it has its own twist to it that makes it completely different and wonderful. In fact, the entire series is wonderful…full of perfectly realistic characters, hints of romance, a wild, believable romance and just the right amount of world building.This is a read that will suck you right in.
The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton: This is historical fantasy at it’s finest. Full of dangerous fey, a sweet romance, a pickpocket-turned savior, and, of course, the cover is amazing.
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvator: This book has a very interesting take on werewolves that intrigued me. The main characters are easy to identify with, and the love interest is very much crush-worthy.
The Iron King by Julie Kagawa: Another fey-related book, but this one is more romance-y and darker than The Faerie Ring. The fey in this series, Seelie or Unseelie, are just as likely to cut your throat as they are to “play” with you. And, to top it off, one of the main characters is Puck. That’s right, the Puck, from A Midsummer Night’s Dream. And he’s awesome.
Fablehaven by Brandon Mull: This is one of the series that gets better and better the longer it goes. The first book is good, the second is great, the third is awesome, the fourth is amazing, and the fifth is off the charts. The protagonists really act like brother and sister, the character building is fantastic over the course of the series, and it creates on of those worlds you would want to live in.
So those are some incredible books I haven’t actually gotten around to reviewing yet, but are completely worth a read. There are so many more, of course…but these are the ones I think that pretty much everyone would like.
So, yeah. Happy Saturday,
