Best Fantasy You've Read in 2014

Welcome to Best Fantasy Books

Take a stroll through any mega bookstore, and you will be inundated with countless fantasy fiction books. A few will be great fantasy books, some will be good fantasy books, and most will be bad fantasy books. Finding a good fantasy novel is difficult, like sifting for gold among sand. But occasionally, just occasionally, you'll find that rare nugget, that grain of gold to forever treasure.

 

 

Some have a negative perception towards fantasy literature (especially those who read only "mainstream" literature) as being cheesy, badly written, and cliche. Yet, rest assured there are some very well written fantasy books out there -- books that can compete arm to arm with "literature". You just have to know where to look.

BestFantasyBooks.com is your number one source for fantasy and science fiction recommendations -- books, comics, anime, movies, and games. We've spent countless hours creating detailed recommendation lists to suite EVERY fantasy fanboy's taste.

Make sure to check out our new sister site devoted to ONLY science fiction:  BestScienceFictionBooks.com . It's still in development, but there are a number of recomendation lists ready, including our Top 25 Best Science Fiction Books.

May 2015

We've updated our Fantasy Subgenre Guide with more than 30 new subgenres. This section was incomplete for several years...but not anymore. So make sure you take a look and give it a read to find out all you want to know about the different fantasy subgenres. If you think we're missing some subgenres, let us know in the comments!

We are trying to finish the NEW BLOG wordpress theme (the current one is just temporary) and we are working on overhauling the listiverse.

And stay tuned -- we are almost finished updating our sister website BestScienceFictionBooks.com. Expect a completely redesigned look (similar to this site) with new social features, now book recommendation features, new lists, updated lists (we've updated the Top 25 Best Science Fiction Books for example), a NEW active blog, science fiction forums, twitter page, and facebook page. Pay attention to this site and you might just find out about some upcoming cool giveaways!

New BestFantasyBooks.com Features Coming Up...

*Brand new blog design that's modern and fits on your phones (current one is just a temporary one)

*Listiverse Redesign (finally creating the real listiverse design -- the current design has just been the filler stuff)

*New Listiverse Features coming (your custom bookshelves, email notifications when books you follow are published, book section to navigate through the books on the database, and more)
