Travis As much as I enjoyed the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Hobbit, I just couldn't top my list with them since elves play one of the smaller roles in the books as far as races go, and faerie folk are absent altogether.


message 2: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Daughter of the Forest - elves or fairies???
I don't recall the book featuring any...

In the forest of Sevenwaters.


message 4: by The (new)

The Elves one of the best books ever written about elves and faeries is Elfland by Freida Warrington!


message 5: by Contrary (new)

Contrary Gerald Morris's books should be on this list...

You know you can add books, right? It's in your upper right corner


message 7: by Sara (last edited Jul 01, 2012 02:44PM) (new)

Sara #66 A Game of Thrones/A Clash of Kings...
One of my favorite series, but whyyy is that on this list?? I certainly don't remember any elves or fairies running around the streets of Kings Landing. Maybe someone considers The Others fairies? If so, those are definitely some of the scariest fairies I've seen to date.


message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

Im looking for a book about faeries but I forgot the title and the author. its about two siblings, brother and sister who move to a farm in the countryside(UK i think) and find faeries on their land... I know that's a vague description but I cant really remember the story and wanted to read it again. it is a 'young reader' book.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You could try the group "what's the name of this book?"


message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

good idea, thanks


message 11: by Theresa (new)

Theresa War For The Oaks!


message 12: by [deleted user] (new)

Up the airy mountain
Down the rushy glen,
We dare n't go a-hunting,
For fear of little men.

It seems like any list in which Tolkien is eligible he is up there on top.


message 13: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited Jun 10, 2013 02:18PM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Easily the most read, I think, Tolkien, in the lists for which it is eligible.

Good point, the more people have read the book, the more likely they'll vote for it.


message 16: by Kara (new)

Kara Eleganta by Denny Swartzlander is one of the best Fae books I've ever read

Maybe the The Various, by Steve Augarde?
Or maybe the 13 Curses trilogy?

yes it rings a bell, but I can't remember either sorry


message 18: by Laura (new)

Laura I'm trying to remember a book, the protagonist is a fairy (elf?) and lives in the fairy world, and part of the premise is that fairies sometimes have monsters as children (like a dragon, siren, etc), so the women sneak into the mortal world to make sure their children are correct. But then there is something with blue skinned goblins (?) and I'm describing this book horribly. I remember it actually being quite good but cannot for the life of me remember the details or the name! Any ideas? For some reason something like "Josclyn" keeps popping into my head, but that doesn't seem to be right.


message 19: by Darla (new)

Darla Wartime

I didn't see this one listed, anyone who enjoys Elf themed books should give it a try. Really epic Dystopian Fantasy story, with Elves at the forefront of its Lore. It's newer, and apparently has a sequel coming out soon.

Besides from that I've always loved Tolkien of course, and Eragon. Because who doesn't love dragons woven so beautifully into the context of a story.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I hope you added it to the list, then.


message 21: by Erin (new)

Erin I don’t recall any elves or fairies in either A Game of Thrones or A Clash of Kings at all, much less the books being about them. This should be removed from the list (currently #79)
