Favorite Fantasy Book
May 23, 2020 at 4:54 pm #113619
I created this post so that everyone could share what their fav fantasy books and or authors are! They don’t have to be fantasy but it would make sense if they were lol!

Here are my favorites, in no particular order…
- The Green Ember (and all the other books in the universe that go along with the main series)
- The Door Within (except the fourth book)
- Wing & Claw
- The Wingfeather Saga
- The Terrestria Chronicles
- This is more mystery than fantasy, but all of the Theodore Boone books by John Grisham are good.
Several of these seem to be pretty popular around here, but I haven’t heard anyone talk about Wing & Claw, The Terrestria Chronicles, or Theodore Boone.

#1 Favorite: Wingfeather Saga. My favourite character is Kalmar, because he’s so stubborn (like me) but he turns out as a leader in the end. Of course, Artham is pretty awesome too.😂
#2: Lord of the Rings. It’s hard to pick a favourite character…but I’d have to go with Frodo. I love his innocence, and his fun-loving outlook (I have a friend that looks creepily like the actor😆). But I’m also an Éowyn fan, because of her courage.
#3: Green Ember Series. I think my favourite rabbit is Heather. She’s kinda a story-teller, but also very brave, and pretty wise.
@beth20 I don’t want to mess anything up, but I thought it would be fun if everyone shared their favourite character in every book too. Is that okay?

I have heard and read some of those! I read The Green Ember books and part of the first Wingfeather Saga!
I will have to check them out!
@arindown the amazing person who did my profile art! 😉
I have read all of those! Though I only read some of the first book to the Wingfeather Saga! My favorite character in the Green Ember is…Small prob or, oh what’s his name??? The guy that recruits Picket? For LOTR my fav character is Aragorn or Sam, though I really like Borimer and Merry!
And yes it’s totally fine!

Ohhhhh yeah lol! I like him! Oh, I have a question for you, after reading the first book did you read the second book or the first to the one back in time or whatever haha!

I read them in the recommended reading order, so the next book I read was The Black Star of Kingston.

My favorite fantasy books. Hmm…
Lord of the Rings and the Chronicles of Narnia are neck and neck for first. (who can blame me.)
Second place: The Hobbit.
Third place: Toward the Gleam. By T. M. Doran
Fourth place: The Silmarillion.

Yeah, the LOTR, The Hobbit, and The Chronicles of Narnia are really good! I don’t think I’ve read the other two though…

I haven’t read fantasy for months… And to be honest, since most of the books I’ve read were of secular authors, it’s somewhat embarrassing to tell other Christians about them 😅 I almost didn’t read the snince I was saved, though – I’m not sure if it’s a goof idea to…
Anyway, my favorites, if not now so when I was younger, are:
Jules Verne. He was the first author I read (back when I was 7) , and his books are really interesting. They’re kinda racist, but I can forgive it because everyone were so back then.
They also contain some Christian references (the 19th century, after all – there was no real secular literature), that totally passed over my head as a little boy (well, I once got a present – the NT stories for children – and it passed over my head… One who doesn’t want to believe, will not believe even if he’ll have a vision from Christ himself. It’s true for adults and children alike).
I really loved In search of the Castaways (The first book I read!) and The mysterious Island, but I enjoyed all of his books that I’ve read.
<b>JK Rowling</b>. Harry Potter is a great book series. I really loved the character of Hermione, because as a child I was pretty much a bookworm myself…
JRR Martin. ASOIAF is maybe the best I’ve read on the literal level. However, it’s full of swearing, sex and violence, and the whole world works by an atheist cynical worldview… I didn’t read it for months, and I really don’t think it’s wise to re-read it…
CS Lewis. The only Christian author I’ve read. I first read Chronicles of Narnia when I was 7, and I re-read some of it’s books later. I’ll not add anything, you all know it 😉
I love Tolkien’s world, but I read LOTR only when I was 9, and I was too young to really understand it.

Haha yeah, I here you lol! I think that there are a lot of books written by secular people that are still good to read, not saying that you were saying there wasn’t! (wow confusion sentence lol!!)
Anyway, yes, I’ve heard a lot about Jules Vern, though I haven’t read any of his stuff lol! I have never heard of J.R.R. Matin, but maybe that’s a good thing…!? 😉
And obviously I’ve heard of and love C.S.Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien!!!!!
P.S. I just looked up J.R.R. Martin and (it’s actually G.R.R. Martin if we’re talking about the same man here haha!) he wrote Game of Thrones, which I’ve heard of and I think someone I know has watched the movie…?

Oh there is an author I really like called Christina Henry! She does retellings of fairy tales. So she did one on Peter Pan from Cap. Hooks POV and such! She is really good. I think she would be considered YA fiction or maybe just adult.
Disclaimer!! There is mild swearing and they’re pretty violent. But if you don’t mind that then…yeah, they are really good!
