Ahh, books. My second favorite thing to spend money on. Behind clothing of course. I try to read as much as possible. To track what I’ve been reading, I joined a fun linkup detailing everthing I read the month before (read January, February, and March). Today I’m going to focus on my all-time favorites.
My favorite genre is without a doubt sci fi/fantasy. Sure, I’ll read a nonfiction book here and there or even a mystery, but you will likely find me reading sci fi or fantasy. And the title of this post is literal, many of my favorites are huge! I’ve linked to the entire series if possible, otherwise it goes to the first book of the series.
Song of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin: I started reading this series (aka Game of Thrones) several years ago. Being able to watch it on TV now is just icing on the cake. Now, if only Martin would hurry up and finish the next book!
Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan (finished by Brandon Sanderson): This series is huge. It literally takes up an entire shelf on one of my bookshelves. But it is so good. While some of the middle/end books are slow and meander a bit, once Sanderson picks the series up, things finally start fitting together and flow to the end.
Spiritwalker Trilogy by Kate Elliott: I always love when there are strong female charaters in books, and this steampunk trilogy delivers. Any book that Elliott writes I like, but this tops the list.
Parasol Protectorate by Gail Carriger: This might be one of the funnest series for me to read. I recently re-read all 5 books in about 6 days. Another steampunk series with British humor had me laughing out loud.
Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson: Sanderson is probably my favorite author. This series is only two books in, but it amazing so far. The world building is fantastic and the characters are great.
EDIT: I would be remiss to leave out a sci fi series.
Dune Chronicles by Frank Herbert: this was probably one of the first true sci fi books I read and continued to stay on my favorites list. One word of advice; stick with the books written by Frank. His son took over the series after Frank died and it just isn’t the same.
