This weeks Top 10 Tuesday is reason’s you love…. and today I decided to list the reasons I love fantasy series with a couple of examples!
Here are 9 reasons why I love Fantasy Series:
I loving deep diving into a new world with every fantasy novel I pick up, learning all about it and how it differs from reality.
Magic is usually at the core of each fantasy novel/series and learning about all of the intricacies, rules and restrictions is one my favourite things about the genre!
The characters are such a highlight in fantasy. Sometimes they are quite similar to regular human in a completely fantastical setting, other times they are a completely foreign species that we need to learn about!
Quests are some of my favourite tropes in fiction and the fantasy genre has provided me with some of my favourites!
Of course nothing quite beats an evil overlord of some kind that our underdog main protagonist needs to defeat. The dichotomy of good versus evil is very prevalent in fantasy and I feel it creates a bond between the reader and the characters.
There are sooooo many different subgenres of fantasy that keep me engaged and consistently entertained! One I’ve recently been enjoying is sci-fi fantasy!
A good romance mixed in between all of the magic and adventure is something that always keeps me coming back for more!
There is something freeing about diving headfirst into a long, epic/high fantasy series that really helps you to escape the realities of life.
This might seem a little trivial to some but there is something about maps in fantasy novels that I just love! It reinforces how different the world may be and definitely adds a layer of depth to the tale.
