I read widely, but for this I'm specifically looking for YA or middle-grade fantasy (and some sci-fi). Some of my favorite authors are Tamora Pierce, Kristin Cashore, Phillip Pullman, Shannon Hale, Holly Black, Garth Nix, J.K. Rowling, Orson Scott Card, and Roald Dahl. I especially gravitate towards feminist and philosophically-minded characters, intricate magic systems, forest settings, and lovable creatures.
Don't get this!
I'm not into YA that's super angsty or MG that's super cheesy. I like characters who are down to earth and practical but still up for adventure. I'm also fairly narrow in my genre taste at the moment -- so please, nothing but YA/MG fantasy/sci-fi!
In addition to everything by the above authors, I already own/read: Healing Wars series, Rules for Stealing Stars, Blackthorn Key series, Warriors series, Mad Wolf's Daughter, Prisoner of Ice and Snow, Abarat, Robin McKinley's books, Fablehaven series, Heinlein's books, The Black Witch, The Gods in Winter, Caraval, Serafina series, Crack in the Sea, Michael Crichton books, Wing & Claw series, Scorpio Races, Miss Peregrine's series, Evertaster, The Girl who Drank the Moon, Devlin's Door, The Golden Key, The Princess Bride, Enchanted Forest Chronicles, Borrowers' series, Narnia series, Frank L Baum books, Benedict Society series, Chanda Hahr books, Barbra Hambly books, Jennifer Robinson books, Sarah J. Maas books, Cathryanne M. Valente books, Gail Carson Levine books, Incorrigibles series, Series of Unfortunate Events, E.L Konigsburg books, Phantom Tollbooth, Fingerprints series, Bruce Coville books, Dune series, Enchanted Ivy, Haroun and the Sea of Stories, Lynne Reid Banks books, Fox & Phoenix.
AcademyTaigaA's Secret Santa is ashieleigh08. Help ashieleigh08 pick the right book.
Arifel: I'd recommend Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi and/or Peasprout Chen, Future Legend of Skate and Sword by Henry Lien as fun reads that fit the YA fantasy brief. Maybe In Other Lands by Sarah Rees Brennan too? (Tue, 27 Nov 2018 16:20:44 -0500)
