He’s back once again using the content from others’ tweets as content for his blog posts! Well, you seemed to like the other posts where my Twitter followers recommended content so why not keep posting them?
Often on Twitter, I will tweet out a question to the Twitter masses in hopes that I’ll get some book recommendations and then now and then these questions will end up getting a heck of a lot of responses.
I’m on a bit of a fantasy hype at the moment so I decided to put out the following question:
Using Twitter’s improved embedding feature, you can actually see the number of responses live now. As it stands as of writing this, there are just over 100 responses to this of what people consider the best fantasy book they’ve read recently.
So rather than letting you go through and scroll through all of the responses, I thought I would compile the most-liked responses which I would take to the mean these are the responses most people agreed with.
So what I’ve done below is extract all of the most popular tweets and then link you to all of the books mentioned so you can check them out for yourself.
So here they are, the books people consider the best fantasy they’ve read recently:
Until The Last by Mike Shackle
The Younglings by Helena M Craggs
Before They Are Hanged by Joe Abercrombie
Kingdoms of Death, The Blacktongue Thief, Holy Sister and The Wisdom of Crowds
Malice by John Gwynne
The Gifts by Liz Hyder
The Riftwar Saga by Raymond E Feist
So there you have it, there is a list of ten different fantasy books (more if you include the fact the last is a trilogy) for you to go and have a peruse of.
These are the fantasy books that my Twitter followers were the very best they’ve recently read. I worded the question like this to avoid people just listing the best fantasies of all time – hopefully, this will give everybody something new to pick up. I know there are some on this list I’ll be having a good look at.
