Top Ten Tuesday (22): Top Faerie Books I’ve Recently Added to my TBR List

June 6, 2017 Top Ten Tuesday 19

**Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and Bookish.**

Up until very recently I had no real desire to read books starring the fae/faeries. Of course one or two would find themselves on my list anyways but faeries were never anything I wished to explore further than guest appearances in my paranormal and fantasy genres. BUT with the help of A Court of Thorns and Roses series and how heavily faeries are portrayed in The Dark Artifices series, I realized I NEED more! So here are a few recent adds to my TBR!


A couple of these aren’t released yet but where do you think I should start? Any more faerie recs for me?

      It seems Holly Black writes a lot of faerie books? Isn’t it great when certain books inspire you to find new things like it? I remember finding Hush, Hush a looooong time ago and hunting for any angel book I could find afterwards. That introduced me to some of my favorites – all the Shadowhunter books as well as the Unearthly series.

    I used to be OBSESSED with the Iron King series way back when they first came out. I think those were some of the very first YA books that I ever really read. Looking back, I’m not sure how I’d feel about them now — they’d probably be my guilty pleasure reads. On the other hand, I read The Falconer back when that was being released a few years ago and LOVED it! I still need to get around to reading the sequel. I’ve heard wonderful things about Princess of Thorns, and I love Holly Black’s darker take on fantasy, so those titles have been on my TBR for a while now. But, I’d start with The Falconer!

      It’s amazing how your tastes change. I don’t reread often but sometimes I think back on a book and question why I loved it as much as I did. lol Thanks for the rec! The Falconer will probably be my first!

    The Iron Fey series is definitely one of my favorite faerie series! It’s so full of magic and the characters are really interesting. Check out the novellas too, they’re just as good.

    I adored ALL the Iron Fey books. I loved the world and the stories and was so sad to leave. I have the Falconer on my TBR too. I have heard so many good things, and I am definitely interested. We nabbed a copy of The Cruel Prince at BEA, so I will probably read that, if we don’t send it to one of the other co-bloggers. I hope you enjoy all these titles.

      What an awesome grab at BEA! I’m hearing such great things about the Iron Fey series. I think I need to check my library this summer and see if I binge read them all at once. 🙂

    The iron fey series was amazing! You should definitely start there but I also loved the wicked lovely series by Melissa Marr and Wings by aprilynne pile. One more fantastic series was wondrous strange by Lesley Livingston!
