Hey! So I have this itch for a fantasy, (You know like dragons, elves (I love elves), knights, that kind of stuff) I'm fine with romance as long as it doesn't drive the plot, or if it's the EXTREMELY sappy kind, and that's about it for my preferences.

You could give Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas a try. It's a YA novel that follows a prisoner trying to fight her way to freedom by winning a tournament against other criminals. And yes, there is romance, a love triangle actually, but the action bits of the books more then make up for it.

I would like a recommendation or a few. I like historical fiction, fantasy, and murder mysteries. I also like paranormal and supernatural books with ghosts and time travel, and science fiction.


Throne of Glass is actually a trilogy, they are: Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight, and Heir of Fire. Sarah J Maas is also coming out with a faerie series soon

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer is a really good fantasy retelling of Cinderella, it starts with Cinder. Four books total, five including the prequel, they are: Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, Winter(book 4 out 2016) and Fairest(prequel out in January).
The Dog Stars is wonderful, I loved that when I read it.

I need some recommendations. I love fantasy but hate romance. The problem is is that most fantasy books have romance.

I could use some suggestions for a book, I just passed my first ever term paper so I'm rather proud of myself. Anything goes so long as instant romance (to characters immediately declaring they love each other, you know the stuff razz ) is not involved. Stuff I typically read ranges from Lovecraft, to Cyberpunk, with the majority of my reading material being some form of Fantasy or Dresden Files. I do really like the less commonly used mythologies (Like Norse, why don't more people write about Vikings? crying ) and fairy tale retellings.

Can I recommend Fly By Night by Frances Hardinge? It's a fantasy novel (actually it's children's fantasy but ehhhh) and the world is very interesting. In it, books are thought to be dangerous and a lot of them are banned so only government approved books are around. Here is the summary::

Twelve-year-old Mosca Mye hasn't got much. Her parents are dead, her cruel uncle keeps her locked away, and her only friend is her pet goose. But she does have one small, rare thing: the ability to read. In a world where books are dangerous things, this gift will change her life—but it may also be the death of her.

I honestly could not put the book down when I started and I was sad to have it end. Apparently there might be a sequel in the works (!!!). But ye, good book, interesting characters, endlessly fascinating world, words are weapons basically. It's too good ahh it might be my favourite book tbh.

Any book suggestions for a 20-year-old girl?

Something preferably not too long, as I'm just getting back into reading. I enjoy adventure, romance, princess/royalty, village settings and SLIGHT fantasy.

I appreciate stories that make you laugh and cry.

I really want something about a girl in her young twenties.

Thanks~

I'd recommend the Elenium Trilogy by David Eddings. Or even if you want to get back into reading The Hobbit or Lord of The Rings.
Fantasy fan? Willing to kick it old school?

Try "Magician" by Raymond E. Feist.
