Hi everyone! I’m writing this post because after a long time of being in a fantasy slump, I finally feel like I’m in the mood to go back to reading fantasy again. I mean I never completely stop reading fantasy, but I went from reading 3 or 4 fantasy books a month a few years ago to reading 1 fantasy book a month or maybe 1 fantasy book every 2 months. Since fantasy has always being my favorite genre, I’m very happy to be feeling up to reading fantasy again and today I want to talk about some diverse fantasy books that I can’t wait to read.
I am so late to this party, but I still want to join in. This is a West African inspired fantasy, about a girl that it’s trying to bring magic back and fight against the monarchy. It seems like everyone has read and loved this book and I want to see if I’ll love it as much as other people. Also, I have heard there is an amazing female friendship in this book and I’m always up for that!
This book is about an Empire under attack from demons and the two girls that are destined to save it. I have heard a lot of amazing things about this book and I was tentatibly thinking about reading it, until recently when I found out that this has an f/f romance in it and then it jumped to my ‘I NEED TO READ IT RIGHT NOW’ tbr.
This is a Cinderella retelling but with an f/f romance. I have had this book on my tbr for years and I don’t know why I haven’t read it yet, but I really want to change that. Also, I’m very intrigued because I have heard that this has a very unique and different ending and I want to know how it ends.
This is an East Asian inspired fantasy that tells the origin story of the Evil Queen from Snow White. I really love morally gray, unlikable female characters in fantasy, so from the moment I heard about this book I knew I wanted to read it. I don’t know why I never got to this, but now that the second book came out and everyone is talking about it again, I need to finally read it.
This is a story about a Princess on the run and a previously enslaved Seer who are looking for the Library of All Things, where it’s possible to change their fates. As soon as I read the summary and it said that there was something called the Library of All Things, I knew I need it to give it a chance. Also, it’s inspired by indian folklore, which makes me even more excited.
I have mention this book in several posts this year, because that’s how excited I am to read this. This is an Asian-inspired fantasy where a Demon King takes human girls for concubines, and it’s the story of two of the girls that fall in love and fight for their freedom and each other. Every person that I know and has read this book has loved it, so I’m hoping I’m gonna feel the same way about it.
Have you read any of these books? What did you think about them? Do you have recommendations for diverse fantasy books?
