Coolcurry Hmm... how would you define "adventure" exactly?


message 2: by Duaa (new)

Duaa Alkhair danger and victory


message 3: by Mitchell (new)

Mitchell How would you define top 10?


message 4: by Mitchell (new)

Mitchell I think The Most Popular Fantasy on Goodreads does a better job of defining the top 10 fantasy adventure novels by accident. Are there non-adventure books on that list? sure. Are there more than 10 books? Yes there are 160 at last count.

But they are more likely to fit the longer description of THIS list, that is "If you're new to the genre, these are the books you NEED to get started. If you're a long term fantasy-genre-buff, then I bet on this list you will find some of your most-cherished novels along with some newbies that are sure to make your most-cherished list next."

And they won't have author spam on it for long.
