Top Ten Tuesday #27

Top Ten Books I'd Recommend To Fans of Tamora Pierce

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

1. The Seven Realms Quartet
After reading the first book, The Demon King, you will be utterly hooked! The world has wizards, intrigue, politics, war, and amazing action scenes. You will fall for the characters and the Queendom!

2. Throne of Glass Series
Assassins. Need I say anything more? 
Oh, and there are fairies and secret passages in this glass palace. For Song of the Lioness lovers, I will add that I am pretty sure Alanna and Calaena (the heroine assassin) would have gotten along famously.

3. Scarlet (Series) by A.C Gaughen
The female lead, Scarlet, is amazing! She is one of Robin Hood's thieves, but she is known to most as Will. Yep, another girl-in-disguise-as-a-boy. I loved reading about her adventures with Robin Hood! Plus, she has many secrets up her sleeve ;)

4. Book of a Thousand Days
This was a beautiful, vivid tale that Tamora Pierce fans will cherish!
The world is alluring and I know all the readers will be cheering for Dashti and she makes brave descisions. Plus, there is a cute kitten involved.Who can resist a kitten???

5. Of Beast and Beauty
I just read this book and LOVED it to death! While I think the characters are much less fun than Alanna and her band of knights and thieves, I found the world to be so fantasy-like. I would really recommend this book if you are fond of The Beauty and The Beast because... well... (Hint: the book is a retelling of that fairytale.) 

6. Graceling
Katsa was such a wonderful heroine... and Po is just amazing! The setting is reminiscence of Tortall, although the king is much worse than Jon! Graceling is a must-read. That sword on the cover was enough to make me read it. You?

I could list tons more, but I think this is enough! 
Happy reading!

  1. THIS LIST IS THE LIST OF MY HEART. You had me at Tamora Pierce. And also at Throne of Glass. And Book of a Thousand Days. And Graceling. Have I mentioned that I LOVE THIS LIST?! For the record, I actually think Alanna and Celaena would HATE each other - if you mixed Alanna and Aly together (which already is a terrifying thought and they get along like oil and water) then you'd get Celaena. I could see Aly liking her though (maybe if she didn't feel too threatened).

    ...this is a fanfiction that needs to happen.

  2. Ohhhh this is a list I never knew I wanted until now. I absolutely love Tamara Pierce's book and having more books to read about kickass women is always welcome . I've read a few already like The Seven Realms quartet and Graceling, but I'll have to check out the others. Thanks for creating this list!

  3. loved throne of glass. I need to get the others. :)

  4. I love this list! havent read all of them yet, but I am well on my way! LD

  5. Holy cow, I LOVE Tamora Pierce! Your list is beautiful. I have read some of these already (Graceling, Book of a Thousand Days) but I can't wait to try the others. Thanks for such a great TTT!
