Top 3 Best Fantasy Novels You've Ever Read!
#1
Hey everyone!

I'm especially stoked to see the forums up and running because I can now freely geek out with you all! Wink

I am a HUMONGOUS fan of the Epic Fantasy genre and my library is already overflowing with books, but I need more! Big Grin So tell me your favorites, just in case I don't have 'em yet! 
To start things off here is my current top 3 MUST-READ fantasy novels. (Sidenote: I purposely didn't put GoT or LotR in there, because EVERYONE knows those books are awesome already!)

1. Name of the Wind - Patrick Rothfuss
2. Blood Song - Anthony Ryan
3. Throne of Glass - Sarah J. Maas

Anxious to see what your favorites are!

Cheers,

My top 3 is more a list of authors than individual books. I'll list my favourite book by each author but any of their works is worth a read.

1. Monstrous Regiment by Terry Pratchett
2. Legend by David Gemmell
3. The Liveship traders trilogy by Robin Hobb

1. Robin Hobb's Realm of the Elderlings.
2. Terry Pratchett's Discworld.

These are more series than books, but they are dang awesome. I'll pretty much insta-buy any RotE book Hobb puts out.

Not sure I have a third book/series.
I was one of the one thousand, one hundred and fifty seven Kickstarter backers

My top three in order are:

1. The house of Cthulhu - Brian Lumley
2. Magic Kingdom for sale, sold - Terry Brooks
3. The Shadowleague trilogy - Maggie Furey   &   The Farseer Trilogy - Robin Hobb

I can't choose between my third favourite so they both get listed.
Also, you should probably read the four books in the Artefacts of Power before reading the Shadowleage Trilogy. Haha

It is a highly subjective matter, but instead of books, if you're a fan of "series" here is mine:

3- Steven Brust's Taltos series
2- R.A. Salvatore's Drizzt series
1- Prattchett's Discworld series

Discworld is awesome / actual literal lol Smile

Several people talked about Discworld, but 40 books seems kindof daunting to me... :S
