TTT: Books I'd Give Readers Who Have Never Read MG Fantasy


This week's TTT topic: Books I'd Give Readers Who Have Never Read X

X here=MG Fantasy (Of course!)

The book noticeably not on this list is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. I LOVE that book, but have found that fervent "I never read MG fantasy" readers have indeed read that one MG fantasy book.

I also left off some other classically famous and popular MG to highlight books I feel demonstrate just how thoughtful and well-written MG genre fiction can be but don't get anywhere near the attention they actually deserve.







This was SO HARD to keep to 10. I originally had way more than that, but I take a sort of ruthless pride in keeping these lists at 10 and not going over.

  1. Yay, Frances Hardinge! She's definite one of my top choices for people who haven't read mg fantasy. And MWT, of course.

    I still need to read Above World...

    1. Frances Hardinge and MWT need to be required reading for everyone in the world. :)

  2. Love fantasy and your list! Kat Incorrigible is one of my faves. Have you ever read "Tales of Ever" by Jen Wylie?
