Books I want to re-read (2)

An updated list of books I want to re-read!  There are a lot of them as I’m in the mood for re-reads at the moment!

First, I want to continue on with my re-read of the Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner: 

-The Queen of Attolia (#2)

-The King of Attolia (#3)

-A Conspiracy of Kings (#4)

Next, I was reminded of the Farsala Trilogy by Hilari Bell recently, and remember loving it and I want to revisit it:

-Fall of a Kingdom (#1)

-Rise of a Hero (#2)

-Foraging the Sword (#3)

Hilari’s Knight and Rogue series is great for younger readers!

Additionally, I (mostly) loved the Books of Pellinor series by Alison Croggon, who has a new book out.  I didn’t like the last book as much as the others but I want to re-read and see if that has changed:

-The Naming

-The Riddle

-The Crow

-The Singing

A carry-over from the last post, I still want to re-read Eon and Eona by Alison Goodman and Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

Finally, I have wanted to re-read this book since I read the second one in this series early this year, to see which I love more, plus I’m told the audiobook is fantastic!

-Illuminae (Kaufman and Kristoff)

That’s a lot of books on my plate!  Anything you want to re-read?

Top 5 Wednesday: Gateway Drugs Books to Your Favorite Genre

topThe usual spiel: Top 5 Wednesday can be found on Goodreads and is currently hosted by Sam at Thoughts on Tomes.

My favourite genera is no secret: fantasy.  And this list is likely going to be my top 5 favourite books, but they got me into reading and have stood the test of time, so I think it fits. 

1. Anything Tamora Pierce – great fantasy reads that are easy to start with and get into.  They are generally low fantasy which is arguably easier to start with than high fantasy. 

2. Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith – same as above.  

3. Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer – good for younger readers, this is a very interesting, funny and easy to get into read.  

4. The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner – another book for younger readers that will get them hooked.

5. Green Rider by Kristen Britain – great book to transition from YA to Adult books as it’s an adult fantasy book that is very similar to YA books.  

Other goodies: Graceling by Kristin Cashore, The Naming by Alison Croggan and Eon by Allison Goodman
