September 29: Ten Books To Read If You Like This Super Popular Book/Author.
Let’s see, super popular book… Harry Potter!
- American Gods; Neil Gaiman. Admire the magical system? The weird creatures? The lurking dangers? The mix of past and present? Then this book, where old clashes with new in a war of gods might work for you.
2. The Magicians; Lev Grossman. A little darker, with a much less likable main character, but amazing world building, and he redeems himself in the end.
3. A Madness of Angels; Kate Griffin. This hero lives, too–well, comes back from the dead–and brings down plenty of bad guys.
4. The Paper Magician; Charlie M. Holmberg. A complicated magic system, plenty of training, and nifty spells.
5. A Wrinkle in Time; Madeline L’Engle. Children in danger. Questionable but exciting guardians!
6. Rosemary and Rue; Seanan McGuire. A grown-up fairyland, with a bit more damage to the misfit crew, but the same bright sense of hope anyway.
7. Sabriel; Garth Nix. Magic and music, and plenty of magical critters.
8. Wee Free Men; Terry Pratchett. Plenty of humor, fighting, and some less than nice fairies.
9. Fangirl; Rainbow Rowell. The fanfiction in this book is very HP, and the characters are very like a HP fan.
10. Howl’s Moving Castle; Diana Wynne Jones. This book has a castle of magic proportions, plenty of curses, and weird transformations.
Love your list! I really need to read Howl’s Moving Castle. I feel like it’s a must read for fantasy fans. My TTT!
Yes, it is. And there’s two other books in the series, too!
Great list! A Wrinkle in Time also appeared on my list this week 🙂
It’s a good book, right? 🙂
I loved the Paper Magician and Fangirl, so I can definitely trust your judgement 🙂 Nice list!
I’m not sure it’s possible to bat a hundred on book recommendations, but you can certainly try!
