(Create a recommendations guide for a person)
I chose to do a list for YA Fantasy Lovers!
1) Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas – Collectors Edition
Both the UK and the US editions are gorgeous, however, I got the US edition with the slipcase because I wanted a slipcase, it feels more special to me. Maybe I’m weird. (lol)
Throne of Glass is a great fantasy series, what better gift to give a YA Fantasy lover than this stunning collector’s edition!
2) Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Another gorgeous collector’s edition. But honestly, who wouldn’t want this? It’s freaking beautiful. The cover. The red sprayed pages. Ugh.
This would make a great gift for someone who loves YA Fantasy with morally grey/misfits as characters. It such a cool duology, the characters are just everything, definitely worth a read!
3) Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
This would be a great present for a YA fantasy lover who wants to get into more adult fantasy books. The Mistborn Trilogy would be a great transition series as it is adult but feels a bit YA too. It’s a really good starting place for adult fantasy!
(Plus, the covers are beautiful!)
4) Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
For the Urban Fantasy lover, this trilogy would be perfect! It’s such a cute story with cool creatures and worlds but set in the familiar place of our own world.
I never thought I’d like the whole angel/demon thing, but this unique take + Laini Taylor’s beautiful writing was just amazing.
5) Spellslinger by Sebastien De Castell
This unique western-style fantasy is just an abundance of fun! The humour is amazing, the characters are so likeable; everything is just great.
This series is such a joy to read, the books actually made me laugh out loud.
The covers are gorgeous too! (If you buy the paperbacks they have sprayed edges)
