WR Recommends - Must Read Fantasy

It's only appropriate that I begin this series with Fantasy, since that's what I am writing at the moment. Please read this post to understand why these particular books are selected. 

Ten Must Read Fantasy
  1. Tigana - Guy Gavriel Kay
  2. The Blood Jewels Trilogy - Anne Bishop
  3. The Sundering Duology - Jacqueline Carey
  4. The Sevenwaters Trilogy - Juliet Marillier
  5. The Lord of the Rings - J. R. R. Tolkien
  6. The Black Magician Trilogy - Trudi Canavan
  7. Magician - Raymond E. Feist
  8. Kingkiller Chronicles - Patrick Rothfuss
  9. The Farseer Trilogy - Robin Hobb
  10. The Empire Series - Raymond E. Feist & Janny Wurts


  1. I'd recommend David Gemmells Jon Shannow books, Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials, and Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman.

    I haven't read Tigana or Sevenwaters, so I will put them on my list!

  2. Joey,

    There will be a separate list for YA :P - I was cheating, and stretching out Fantasy in various forms ;)

    There will be a separate list for Urban Fantasy as well.
