Persi A modern YA King Arthur fantasy/romance My Boyfriend Merlin


message 2: by blueemerald (new)

blueemerald Greetings-
How exciting to have found this list. I have been a rather rabid reader and compulsive collector of Arthuriana (fiction, fantasy, sci-fi, romance) for decades.
This list gave me the opportunity to compulsively share my lists with interested others. So I did! Thanks for letting me contribute. Hope you find some books of interest, and ones you hadn't previously known about.


message 3: by Barbara (new)

Barbara Love this list. Have been reading re-tellings of the Arthurian legend for years after reding Le Morte d'Arthur in college. Some of my very favorites are on this list.


message 4: by Kirsten (new)

Kirsten Rodning Twilight...? Is there some cult that tries to get this book on every Goodreads list?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Seems like it sometimes!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Sense and Sensibility is a bit of a weird choice, as well.


message 7: by Katerina (new)

Katerina Kirsten wrote: "Twilight...? Is there some cult that tries to get this book on every Goodreads list?"

I second that. It should not be on this list.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Y'all want me to remove those?


message 9: by Kelsey (new)

Kelsey This list is just what I was looking for!


message 10: by Dawn (new)

Dawn Jane Eyre? I know it's been a long time since I read it, but is that really an Arthurian re-telling?


message 11: by Muhammed (new)

Muhammed Al To Dawn, only Morris'"GUINEVER" is Arthurian in Victorian literature.


message 12: by Dawn (new)

Dawn Muhammed wrote: "To Dawn, only Morris'"GUINEVER" is Arthurian in Victorian literature."

huh?


message 13: by Muhammed (new)

Muhammed Al To Dawn,please read my new book on the subject, Knights of the Industrial Revolution,jus published today.see Outskirts.com or Amazon.It is on Victorian Medievalism.


message 14: by Chris (new)

Chris Several books I've enjoyed on this list, others I still need to get on my bookshelf


message 15: by Muhammed (new)

Muhammed Al To Chris and Dawn,how do you justify the West's interes in the Medieval? Nostalgia?


message 16: by Chris (new)

Chris I don't have to justify anything like that Muhammed, I just enjoy reading about different periods in history. So much so that I'm currently working on a novel centred around 'The First Fleet', that took shiploads of convicts from England to Australia in 1786


message 17: by Dawn (new)

Dawn I agree with Chris, I don't have to justify anything. I too enjoy reading & studying the past (although Arthurian is not my favorite genre), and it's not nostalgia for me, although maybe it is for some. Why is the Middle East still interested in Andalusia? Why did much of Asia revere the past so much?

blueemerald I love to read and particularly enjoy the Arthurian fiction(s). These Listopias are fun resources for new reads-always welcome! This linked site is another lengthy list of Arthurian fiction (historical, fantasy, sci-fi, romance, YA, graphic, short stories). Thought I'd share just one more treasure trove!
