Books I’ve Read- And Enjoyed
Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J. R. R. Tolkien– I’d recommend this to anyone interested in fantasy and literature
The Classic Grim Brothers Fairy-Tales – I will warn you, some of them get really weird.
Shakespeare (particularly Macbeth, King Richard III, and Hamlet) – I know it can be hard to understand, but if you’re interested in writing than I would definitely give it a try. Even if you’re not interested in writing, then I’d still recommend it just for the sake of it being such a classic example of art
The Marshall Plan for Novel Writing by Evan Marshall– Again, for those interesting in writing, you’ll find this book of decent help.
Mistborne Series by Brandon Sanderson– Definitely a YA series (I haven’t finished the last book yet though), but entertaining and fun nonetheless. I’d pretty much recommend any of his books
The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss– It can be a bit intense but the world building was amazing. I heard somewhere it took him fifteen years to write though. Incredible story nonetheless and the characters are quite good as well.
There’s just not enough time.
I’m complying a list of books I want to read (when I finally get the time). Feel free to comment if you read any of these or have any other suggestions. As you can see, most of these are fantasy leaning on the epic side but eventually I’ll add some mystery/thriller/comedy as well.
Red Rising Saga by Pierce Brown- It just looks like an interesting read.
Obsidian Blade by Morgan Rhodes- I should probably finish the Falling Kingdom Series first though.
Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne by Brian Stavely– I’ve read some really interesting reviews from people who love and hate this one. Now I really want to try it for myself.
Finish the Mistborn Series by Brandon Sanderson– I’m not going to apologize for loving MG and YA fiction. I’m just not.
The Belagariad Series David Eddings– An older series (written in 1982) but heard it was an interesting fantasy story.
Sentinel Chad Ballard– Again, good reviews. Especially when it comes to the characters.
