message 1: by cacinta (new)

cacinta As much as I love the time-traveler's wife, I don't think it belongs in this list. It's more sci-fi than fantasy


message 2: by Jason (new)

Jason Reading the dark tower series was the biggest disappointment.

reading anything by King is a big disappointment.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads 20 more voters than ratings - gee, that's convincing.


message 5: by Kelley (new)

Kelley Ceccato I do love The Hobbit (no. 99), but even though many adults enjoy it, it was written for children.


Emma Deplores Goodreads Censorship Hey, somebody deleted my book #3! I am not amused. Everything on my list is fantasy and written for adults--librarians, remember the rule of cautious editing judgment.
