Another Sunday, another book tag.
I know summer is peak time for contemporary and romances, at least for me. But I’m hoping this tag will inspire me to pick up a fantasy soon because I have so many on my shelves I want to read.
I saw @OneBookMore do this tag and new it would be perfect.

Five Star Book
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
The unique and complex magic system hooked me in the story. And I really loved the character relationships – a lot of butting heads.
Always Going to Recommend
The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson
I read this way after the hype had died down, but I could not put this story down. The love triangle is so well done and this world is a dark and dangerous place.
Own It But Haven’t Read It
To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
We need more mermaid and siren stories because what is a more perfect summer fantasy. Also see: A Song Below Water by Bethany C. Morrow, but I’ve already read it.
Would Read Again
House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas
I read this earlier this year, and I already want to reread it. I think Sarah shines at worldbuilding and I love how much hidden detail there is in her stories.
In Another World
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
Sister stories hit some kind of way to me and these 3 batting sisters is as good as it gets. This is a gritty, action-filled story that weaves multiple storylines excellently.
Back On Earth
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
If you’re looking for a fantasy with just a hint of magic, I think this series would be perfect for you. It’s easily accessible to new fantasy readers, but the magic is unique enough to satisfy all. And the dynamics between the characters is almost unmatched.
