Top Ten Books I'd Recommend to Someone Who Wants to Get Into Fantasy

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by the Brooke and the Bookish. This week's top ten was of books I'd recommend to a person of my choosing. Since I am often asked which novels I'd recommend to someone who wants to get into fantasy, I chose that kind of person for my list. These are not necessarily the best fantasy books around, but I think that they would be able to interest the reader enough to urge them to look further into the genre whilst also give them a clear idea what sort of books they will find and easing them gently into the genre.

Mad Love by Suzanne Selfors

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin

The Lighting Thief by Rick Riordan

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

Stardust by Neil Gaiman

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J. K. Rowling

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

So, which are the ten books you'd recomend to a person of your choosing? Let me know in the comments!
