Any Fantasy literature fans in the house? I’m fairly new to the genre, but have been greatly enjoying the couple of series I’ve read so far. This morning, I’m hoping to finish #3 of Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn series, which has been fantastic thus far.


@erik i have been obsessed with N K Jemison’s Broken Earth trilogy (the audible versions are particularly amazing) hope to dig into her other works soon.

as a lot of the fantasy world is dominated by straight white dudes (don’t get me wrong, i love me some Tolkien), it’s really refreshing to be immersed in a fantasy series by a woman of color. she is bad ass.

Rebecca Roanhorse's "Trail of Lightning" is great. It's the first in what will be a series. The second is coming out this year. I second N. K. Jemisin, of course. Her Inheritance Trilogy is also fantastic. On the urban fantasy front, two that I enjoy are Jim Butcher's Dresden Files and Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson and Alpha and Omega series.

Hmmm. And Laurell K. Hamilton has been one of my guilty pleasures for the past quarter century. 😋 😊

@tmorizot @Melissa @riayngrey @erik I love the Dresden Files. Also the Codex Alera series (also by Butcher) is wonderful (with the added bonus of being completed. If you want to love Fantasy, come prepared to wait 10 years for the next book.

@riayngrey Thanks for the recommendation! I’ve been trying to fill out my reading list with more diverse voices.

@riayngrey Turns out that two of my friends on goodreads have already read that and gave it *rave* reviews. I’m excited to dive in!
