Top Ten Tuesday is a Weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where each week a topic is given and we have to reply with ten answers.
This Week’s Question: Ten Books To Read If You Like Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
It was really hard to choose which book to feature for the title, as i needed to pick one in a genre that i knew enough other books about and other books that have vague ties to the series. I’m going to probably feature another couple of popular books here, however there will hopefully be a few that you haven’t heard of before and can check out. All of these i’ve read personally and really enjoyed.
10. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
So this is kind of cheating i guess, but if you liked Sarah’s work in A Throne of Glass, check out her other series. It’s aimed at a slightly more mature audience, however i still really enjoyed it and cannot wait for the next book. It also helps that these books are released in May, which breaks up the year nicely so you don’t feel like you have to wait as long for one of Sarah’s books to be released.
9. Kiss of Shadows by Laurell K. Hamilton
There is something about this series that drew me in and reminds me slightly about Throne of Glass. The main character is fae and there is an evil ruler. As the series progresses the storyline becomes more and more involved around sex and therefore again is for slightly more mature readers. However i really enjoyed getting to know the characters and enjoyed the plot.
8. The Pledge by Kimberly Derting
A rebellion against the current system, a girl that doesn’t know just how important she is. The ruler that is more evil than anyone imagines. Definitely give it a try!
7. The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
Its about a struggling country and the girl that will save them all. I read it a while ago so can’t remember too many details, however it was definitely a great read.
6. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
A great fantasy read with a interesting female character. I definitely enjoyed the first book and there were certain elements that made me think of it when i was writing this top ten. Hopefully if you haven’t read or heard of it yet, you’ll give it a chance.
5. Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder
It’s by Maria V. Snyder and therefore i like it by default. However it follows Avry in a world that has been torn apart by war and the plague and how she and her companions survive in this strange world and help structure the new civilization that will form. It’s a fantastic book and i’d definitely recommend checking it out.
4. Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
This story features the female protagonist not really fitting in and learning more about who she is and why certain things have happened. It’s a bit of a strange one, but a great read.
3. Graceling by Kristin Cashore
This is a story about a female protagonist with a special skill in killing. She is shunned by her family and feared by many. It’s a great story and definitely worth reading.
2. Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
Again, there is a strong female protagonist. I’m not going to say too much because i don’t want to spoil the story, however it’s definitely worth picking up.
1. Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
So, we all know i love this series and the author. It features a strong female protagonist that has been kept in captivity and works towards being the powerful person that they are meant to be. There are assassin’s and poison and if you liked Throne of Glass i’d definitely check it out.
