Today, I thought I will showcase my meagre personal collection of fantasy novels. This means I’ve truncated all the non-fantasy books out of my collection which isn’t much: two copies of Sherlock Holmes (a full collection and a volume 1 which I bought on an overseas trip to read in the hotel) and Taiko.
Anyway, there is a very large overlap between my personal collection and Moonlake’s Top Picks. But for the sake of completeness, I will list them out one by one:
- The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien
- The Lord of Rings by J.R.R Tolkien
- The Riftwar Saga (Magician, Silverthorn, A Darkness at Sethanon) by Raymond E. Feist
- The Serpentwar Saga (Shadow of a Dark Queen, Rise of a Merchant Prince, Rage of a Demon King) by Raymond E. Feist- note that there is a 4th book to this series, Shards of a Broken Crown. I intentionally did not buy it because I felt it functions more like a tag-on book, adds nothing to the whole series, but extends it out with a bunch of ‘new’ characters.
- Prince of the Blood by Raymond E. Feist
- The King’s Buccaneer by Raymond E. Feist
- The first trilogy of Demonwars (The Demon Awakens, The Demon Spirit, The Demon Apostle) by R.A. Salvatore
- The Cleric Quintet by R.A. Salvatore
- A Gathering of Ravens by Scott Oden
- Shaman’s Crossing by Robin Hobb
And that’s all for today. I will stick with short and sweet for now until I ease myself back into the routine of blogging.
