I have done some #SpringCleaning on my nightstand in my bedroom of several books particularly #MedievalFantasy of brave heroes and heroines, impossible odds and circumstances, far away and fantastic kindgoms, and magic!  These are a few novels that I continue to read again and again in the above picture..."A Dance with Dragons," "The Hobbit", "Eon", and "Falling Kingdoms". Let me briefly tell you more about these book below!

I enjoyed reading "Falling Kingdoms" because several young heros get cault up in magic and politics that strectches between three kingdoms and now become learn of a greater threat that will destroy the entire realm of Mytica! Each young person's told based on politic, social, and magical perspectives while unraveling lies and hidden truths about his or her past!  There are two more books in this series but I will try to find them in the library or book exchange! My goal for 2016 is to get a tablet which will allow more space in my bedroom and affordablity to read for free or buy for low price "ebooks" of popular books!

This is the place where our stories take place in fictional world of Mytica (honestly I was hoping for more original name than that!)

I like how "Falling Kingdoms" organized the characters in the book and where the reside in which kingdoms where they all play a part in the rise and fall of Mytica!

I love the brief summaries about each of the kingdoms that helps give me an idea to follow while understand each characters unique roles and choices in the kingdoms of Mytica! If you are into magic and rebelling kingdoms, then "Falling Kingdoms" will be a great read for you!

I have read the fifth book in the "Song of  Ice and Fire" of  " Game of Thrones" which is a well written but very gritty medieval fantasy novel which also has a new season on the popular HBO series of the same name! Each chapter follows a character or aspect of the great houses of Westeros and across the Narrow Sea! I am big fan of House Stark and House Targaryen plus I am fan of Tyrion Lanaster (aka the Imp) who overcome great tragedy and hoping a great victory each in their own way!

 I enjoyed seeing the maps and histories of the Great Houses which gives a lot information about each character and what defines them to make their choices, for better or worse!

I can't wait for the author of this series to finish up and release the next book which will be the sixth in the series! If you like warring houses, magic, plots and schemes, and of course dragons, then Game of Thrones might be great choice for you read!

Eon is really Eona, a sixteen year old girl who must concealed her gender or face death, who for four years undergoes magic and sword art training as young, crippled apprentice to become an candidate to become a Dragon who shares this secret with his (her) master and close friends! Eon (Eona) faces cultural, gender, caste system barriers to become the selected Dragon Eye for a Hidden Dragon that has not been revealed for over a century! Eon (Eona) loyalties and secrets are tested in his (her) journey to not only protect herself, but her friends and the entire kingdom from their enemies! If you love strong women characters, magic and magical creatures, and sword fights then "Eon" would be a great medieval fantasy read!

Ever since I was girl, I have enjoyed "The Hobbit" which is a prequel to the "The Lord of the Rings" series which chronicles the unexpected journey of a respectful hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, on a quests to help of group of dwarves regained their treasure and home from a evil dragon! Bilbo does a lot of amazing things and discovers himself on this quests while seeing elves, trolls, evil spiders, and yes a wizard, too!  I love how this book talk about home and what really matters in Life and I love how Bilbo becomes a hero in his own right no matter what people or creatures think of him!  Grab you favorite snack, find a comfy place, and read "The Hobitt" today!

Except for "The Hobbit" which is one of my sister's books, I will donate these books at my college library which has a local "Free Book Exchange" so people can enjoy these books at no cost to them and I hope that I pick up a new or favorite book to read! What are you favorite medieval fantasy books or series that you enjoyed reading?

Until next time...

  1. That's so great that you're a fantasy reader! I took an English course in that very topic in college. It was fun, and very different from my usual studies and reading. The Hobbit was probably my favorite fantasy book.
