What’s on my bookshelf ? 6
Are you looking for Epic Fantasy novels that are suitable for Young Adult readers? Here are a few that I enjoyed reading…
So, on my bookshelf, you can find:
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit”... and the most famous YA Epic Fantasy book came to life in 1937.
The Seven Realms series by Cinda Williams China
Han is a reformed thief in the mountain city of Fellsmarch. Raisa is the princess heir of the Fells. In the Seven Realms, clans and wizards are about to start a war. That’s when the lives of Han and Raisa collide…
The Dark Is Rising sequence by Susan Cooper
An immortal boy, six medallions created and hidden centuries ago, a Rider intent on gathering them and raising the Dark… an awesome read!
His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman
“There are some themes, some subjects, too large for adult fiction; they can only be dealt with adequately in a children’s book.” Philip Pullman, in his Carnegie Medal Acceptance Speech (1996). Such a complex, beautiful book, for all ages.
That’s it for today… I have many other YA Epic Fantasy stories sitting on my bookshelf but they’ll have to be included in another post…
Any other books you’d recommend? Feel free to comment!
