Good heavens you are more than welcome to give me some Historical Fiction or Fantasy book recs O_O I need more new things. Desperately. My usual recs are pretty standard and tend to lean more towards fantasy right now::

  • The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfus
  • The Lies of Locke Lamora & Red Seas under Red Skies by Scott Lynch
  • The Mistborn Trilogy, The Way of Kings, and Elantris by Brandon Sanderson
  • Pillars of the Earth and World Without End by Ken Follett
  • Good Omens and American Gods and Disc World and Basically anything and everything by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
  • I’m also a big fan of the Dark Tower series and pretty much everything else Stephen King has written. Can’t do horror movies at ALL, but I LOVE horror books. If you’re a fan of the Dark Tower, make sure you read The Talisman and Black House

I know I’m forgetting a bunch and I’d have to be home to look through my books but anyway, yeah feel free to leave your own book recs??

  2. star-singers-light said: Have you ever read any of Mercedes Lackey’s Velgarth books? (Heralds of Valdemar etc) I know she’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but she’s my favourite fantasy author and I’ve reread most of her books at least twice…
  3. tanavast said: the borderlands series by lorna freeman. interesting magic system and plot and also the main character is called RABBIT how cute is that <:
  4. ookkee said: Megan Whalen Turner has a really great series. meganwhalenturner.org/N… It is a little like a historical novel of a fantasy place that has magic and kings and queens.
  5. slutmuffins said: IAIN (M.) BANKS. he writes sci-fi and non-sci-fi - his ‘Culture’ novels are sci-fi and SO FUCKING GOOD like so inventive AND well-written, and ‘the wasp factory’ (non-sci-fi) is one of my favourite books OF ALL TIME
  6. singergurl91 said: Seven Realms Series, The Heir Series (both by Cinda Williams Chima) Both fantasy, romance, love her writing. Also try Incarceron if you like dystopias (4 for you for PotE and WWE)
  7. tygermama said: Jane Lindskold ‘Child of a Rainless Year’ - magical realism and ART and place porn, also she does a series ‘Through Wolf’s Eyes’ about a girl raised by telepathic wolves, better than it sounds
  8. aurieal said: Have you read John Dies at the End, by David Wong? It’s sort of fantasy/horror/STRANGENESS and it’s pretty amazing. They recently made it into a movie; it had a super limited theatrical release but it was also simultaneously released to download!
  9. sashaforthewin said: Anything by Charles De Lint or Christopher Moore
  10. plume-au-vent said: The Codex Alera by Jim Butcher is basically Pokemon+Roman Empire. The series is finished and comes to an extremely satisfying conclusion, so no cliffhangers or endless waiting if you’re involved.
  11. ur-cute-so-i said: omg you like the kingkiller chronicles my love for you just went up 200000
  12. linzthenerd said: house of leaves is brilliant :)
  13. wordsofivory said: The Banned and the Banished OR The Godslayer Chronicles by James Clemens. Both series are my absolute favorites.
  14. nefherms said: Teen Fiction: A Great and Terrible Beauty (Plus the 2 books that follow) By Gregory Magguire: I suggest Mirror Mirror and Confessions of an Ugly Step Sister. He’s known for Wicked, and that is a 4 part Series set before the Wizard of Oz.
  15. theknightherself said: I’ve started reading the Nightrunner series by Lynn Flewelling recently and I’m really enjoying it. Its definitely leans toward fantasy genre-wise.
  16. venneh said: Have you tried any of Guy Gavriel Kay’s novels? I’d particularly recommend the Fionavar Tapestry trilogy (Celtic myth + Arthurian myth + other worlds = YES!), and Under Heaven (alternate universe history of the Tang dynasty).
  17. theadorableordinary said: This is historical fiction, but if you haven’t read Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series, you should check it out!

  19. elleliteration reblogged this from areyoutryingtodeduceme and added:
    Island of Ghosts by Gillian Bradshaw - Historical fiction Night Angel Trilogy & Black Prism by Brent Weeks - Fantasy...
  20. converse-universe said: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I graduated last year as an English major (so I have done a ridiculous amount of reading) and this remains one of the best books I’ve ever read. Historical fiction set in Germany during WWII. Beautiful.
  21. takaminas said: Havemercy series by Jaida Jones and Danielle Bennet
  22. urbanhymnal said: For historical fiction: The Baroque Cycle (Quicksilver, The Confusion, and The System of the World) by Neal Stephenson. Long trilogy, but fascinating!
