Today’s Video: What To Read If You’re New To Reading Fantasy

Found At: The Curly Bookworm

Sorry for the long hiatus for Booktube Bites, it’s finally back! This week’s video is from Shibani at The Curly Bookworm. In her video she share 5 books that newcomers to the fantasy genre might enjoy. I’ve always enjoyed fantasy books as a child, so I thought the books that she picked were some great choices.

Fantasy is a very wide genre and it’s hard to into at times because there are so many types of books to choose from. From the paranormal to books with flying dragons, it can be overwhelming for newbies. My personal pick for Fantasy newbies would have to be something along the lines of Scarlette: A Gothic Fairy Tale by Davonna Juroe. It’s a fun retelling of Red Riding Hood.

Question of the week: What books do you recommend to fantasy newbies? Share your picks!

Have a happy and bookish weekend!🙂

  1. Oh my God, Harry Potter is indispensable fantasy reading. I’m trying to think — when I recommend SFF to brand newbies to SFF, I think I try to choose things that seem like they might be filed not in the SFF section. Like Salman Rushdie or Life after Life by Kate Atkinson, see, and then I smooooooooooooth them into the SFF world and then I hit them with a LEGIT GENRE BOOK.

    1. I actually haven’t heard of Salman Rushdie or Life after Life by Kate Atkinson. So I’ll have to check both. But I agree, I usually give friends/family a light SFF book to start out with and slowly emerge them into the genre.
