10 Fantasy Favs of 2019!

This week’s Top 10 Tuesday prompt is books from your favourite genre. My favourite genre is without a doubt Fantasy; high fantasy, urban fantasy, epic fantasy and every other sub-genre of fantasy that there is out there! I had a really hard time narrowing this list down to just 10 books so I decided to restrict my list to just fantasy books I’ve read in 2019! I have talked about a lot of these books multiple times on my blog now so I’m not going to go into any details about why, just know that I love each and every one of these books and would 100% recommend them all!

Wundersmith Review

9780734418227This was a great sequel!

This book really delved so much deeper into the land of Nevermoor and we are beginning to see some of its fantastical elements. I love the trick lanes and their classifications, especially since we are made aware of them early on in the book with no explanation.

Morrigan had such a hard time in this book and it really had me cheering for her. Nobody really knows what she has to deal with being a Wundersmith and having that stigma attached. So when she is still constantly told that all of the Wundersmiths are horrible and evil of course you would start to second guess yourself. Thank goodness for Jupiter who mostly was always there to support Morrigan and tell her that she is good. I loved how he scoured the city to try to prove to her that there was some good Wundersmiths in the past, which really cemented how good and honourable and supportive he is.

I love the unit element as well. How these nine kids who only met during their exhaustive trials would somehow connect and become a family. And to have their bond tested so early on with the blackmailing was a great twist. Miss Cheery was a wonderful character as well, I really loved her. She was a constant in these kids’ lives, when they needed a bit of stability she was there. She really proved how loyal and supportive of Unit 919 she is and it really showed throughout the course of the storyline.

The Wunder Society kind of got on my nerves for most of the book. How they decided to just quash Morrigan’s knack and not give her the tools to control it. She knows almost nothing about being a Wundersmith and is forced to just deal with it on her own. Jupiter is off trying to figure out the disappearances and he can’t intervene on her behalf, so she has to weather the storm on her own. She acted exactly how I would have in her situation so that made me like her even more! They did sort of redeem themselves at the end though so I’ll give them that. Forcing Morrigan to reveal herself sort of forced them into action and teach her the proper way to handle her knack.

This was a fantastic read. It is very fast paced and with every turn of the page there is something going else going on. All of the components are established very early on in the storyline and they are just weaved throughout the book so well that when the reveal happens you didn’t see it coming at all. I couldn’t predict what was going to happen next in this book which really kept me invested and interested.

⭐️4.5/5 Please read this series you won’t regret it!


img_2796I was actually really surprised how much I enjoyed Nevermoor. I had a feeling going into it that it might be a bit too juvenile for my taste but that wasn’t the case at all! It reminded me kind of as a mix between Harry Potter and Percy Jackson but also it was very distinct and unique as well, especially since out main protagonist is a female. I really contemplated giving it a 5/5 but it just fell short of that for me, so I’m thinking Wundersmith might just do it! I believe we follow Morrigan as she enters school in this book and school settings are always one of my favourite story-lines to read from. I”m excited to get into Wundersmith and I hope it’s as good as what I think it will be. I’ve heard great things!

Happy Reading📚
