As you may have seen at the Tea Leaves Book Club we were reading fantasy this month. Our theme was ‘other realms’ and we read ‘A Court of Mist and Fury’ by the reigning queen of YA/NA fantasy Sarah J. Maas. As the month of June comes to a close and we prepare for July and our paranormal month I thought I would recommend some more of my all time favorite Fantasy books to you! These books fall under a variety of sub genres such as; high fantasy, low fantasy and urban fantasy so hopefully you’ll find something to your tastes. And, don’t forget to join us for discussions at the book club’s goodreads group.
