The Five Must Read Fantasy Books of All Time

Fantasy Books to Read

I If you love fantasy novels, then you have to read The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. Not only is it an amazing series but it is the formula that many fantasy authors have used to write their novels. If you have read a bunch of fantasy novels, then you have most likely come across troupes that were popularized by Tolkien.

One of my favorite series on the list is The First Law by Joe Abercrombie. It is a gritty and bloody series that feels like it belongs on HBO. The characters are interesting and the protagonist has his moments. The world building is what makes this novel special and one of a kind.  

A sci-fi class that made our top five list is Dune by Frank Herbert. The world building and storytelling made this a fan favorite. And one of the later books in the series went on to be the first sci-fi book to become a New York Times bestseller. Ironically, Tolkien was not a fan of the novel but refused to review the novel because he didn’t think it would be fair to Herbert, a fellow author.

    I’ve never understood the fascination with the Wizard of Earthsea. The Belgariad is a far superior story and is a must read for anyone who enjoys fantasy.

    The fact that Andre Norton, T. H. White David Gemmell, Mercedes Lackey, Lois McMaster Bujold or even Poul Anderson wasn’t included is a serious injustice
