A Modern List
The first thing that stood out to me was that it started off with American Gods. Most times, this novel misses out on lists like these because there are fantasy novels that are just better or more revered. The Wheel of Time series didn’t make this list and I am sure that fans of the series were not happy.
There were two surprises on this list for me. The Last Unicorn and Six of Crows were novels I did not expect to see here. I haven’t read The Last Unicorn so I can’t say anything about it but Six of Crows is a fantastic novel. I enjoyed it a lot and it made me a fan of Leigh Bardugo so I have no complains about it.
What did you think of G+T’s 10 best fantasy books of all time list? It has a lot of classic fantasy novels and passes the test in my opinion. Missing a few here and there is fine as not everyone is going to enjoy all the same fantasy novels. What books would you have included on the list? Let us know in the comments below!

I am just a little bit disappointed that The Fifth Season by N.K Jemisin is only at number 5. That literally makes no sense to me, because it is definitely one of the best works of speculative fiction I have ever read. Do give it a try if you haven’t already!
It’s still a book I unfortunately haven’t gotten around to reading. The to read list never seems to get any smaller 😅
