Today is the seventh day of our #BestReadsOf2020 challenge and we are talking about our favorite fantasy read this year.
❤️
I have read many amazing fantasy books that will come in other categories this month but my two winners are:

KING OF SCARS by Leigh Bardugo

And I want Nikolai to end up with Zoya..
“He’d come to recognize the bizarre phenomenon of Zoya’s beauty, the way men loved to create stories around it. They said she was cruel because she’d been harmed in the past. They claimed she was cold because she just hadn’t met the right fellow to warm her. Anything to soften the edges and sweeten her disposition–and what was the fun in that? Zoya’s company was like strong drink. Bracing–and best to abstain if you couldn’t handle the kick.”

CRESCENT CITY by Sarah J Maas

The contrast between cars crowding the streets at rush hours while witches flew just above on their brooms and angels towered up, up everything was disconcerting in the beginning.

I don’t know why but I got a “Star Wars” cities vibe sans spaceships nor Dart Vader. 😊

But that world is amazingly built. And I did not expect anything else from Sarah J Maas! From the different supe species to the hierarchy going through political problems and the favorite clubs, everything was detailed to let you SEE that world.

 

What are your favorite fantasy reads this year?

 

Thanks for reading!

  1. I read Priory this year so I think that’s gunna be mine!

  2. Crescent City is one that I have been wanting to read forever! I am so thrilled to find out that you loved it so much. I keep hearing wonderful things about it.

    1. I hope you’ll give it a shot one day Lori!

  3. Couldn’t agree with you more about Crescent City, Sophie! And my battery is at 82% so win, win! Great choices!

    1. Bwahaha I am happy for you Trisy!

  4. It’s been a while since I read some SJM. I have to get back to her series.

    1. Yes you do! LOL

  5. Oh my, it seems that I would be on Ravka fighting along side Sebastian Michaelis from Black Butler. We will win without any doubts!!
    I haven’t read the books you mentioned but I think that, sooner or later, I would read the one by Bardugo!

    1. I knew you were badass underneath the booknerd exterior Susy! :-))))))

  6. I still need to read the Maas book but I loved King of Scars. I think my favorite fantasy read this year has been Sorcery of Thorns, which I finally read last week and just adored.

    1. I am so HAPPY that you loved it Suzanne!!!

  7. I know many fantasy readers have a love for Maas’s work. I like that it has an almost Star Wars feel to it without the major sci fi elements. LOL

    Some of my favorites this year were Warcry by Elizabeth Vaughan, and Touch of Stone and Snow by Milla Vane

    1. These seem amazing Renee!

    I’ve yet to read Crescent City. I made the mistake of trying to read it when I was in a bit of a slump and got no further than the first few chapters… Need to try it again sometime soon!

    1. The beginning is slow Nicci.

  9. Crescent City for sure!!

  10. You know I’m not much of a fantasy reader but I am a bit curious about the one from Maas since I love the ACOTAR series so much. My husband actually just read that one last month and enjoyed it!

    1. You should listen to your husband Tanya LOL

Let's talk!
