Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today’s all about rainy day reads, and for me, rainy days just seem perfect for reading magical books. So all of the following books contain some magic and a nice touch of whimsy that is guaranteed to make you forget all about the rain outside and just get completely immersed into their fantastical worlds.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
I am listening to this one on audiobook right now and I am in love. This is one of the most magical books I’ve ever read and I wish I could visit the actual Night Circus in real life.
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
This story about a couple of kids in search of ley lines does not just contain a whole lot of magic, but also a pretty magical friendship.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Laini Taylor has such a beautiful, whimsical writing style that is bound to captivate you completely.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
It’s the magical classic, of course I had to include it.
Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor
Truthfully, I have not yet read this myself, but the synopsis already sounds so whimsical and magical, plus it’s Laini Taylor so that says enough
An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson
If the beautiful cover alone doens’t convince you this is a magical book, then let me tell you that this standalone fantasy was an absolutely gorgeous and enchanting read.
Uprooted by Naomi Novik
Another standalone fantasy about a dragon (not really a dragon though) who takes girls from a small village to be his servant. This story will completely sweep you away for sure.
The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye
A magical competition set in Imperial Russia, I mean, could this be any more enchanting?
The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas
The Burning Sky trilogy is one of the first fantasy series I fell head over heels in love with. Definitely recommend for anyone in love with elemental magic and gorgeous worlds.
