Ryan The author came to visit my school earlier this year. I finished this book as part of my summer reading and really, really, enjoyed it.

Erica (storybookend) I can't believe Fablehaven and Lightening thief weren't on here. Hello!

Autumnpaw♥ I know!!!!!!!!!


message 4: by Deanee (new)

Deanee Oh how sad, there is neither Terry Goodkind nor Robert Jordan on this list, when they should probably be at the top.


message 5: by Nathan (new)

Nathan I would have voted for The Hunger Games but I consider that more Science Fiction than Fantasy.

It's definitely not science fiction either. It's commercial magical realism, but not literary magical realism, like say, One Hundred Years of Solitude for example.


message 7: by Greg (new)

Greg Strandberg I just went through two pages and only voted for Book 1's. I felt that some books were a bit too high on the list, especially some Book 4's before classic fantasy novels...but that's just me.
