Hi everybody and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today is a genre freebie and I decided to focus on:
Romantasy (AKA fantasy romance or romantic fantasy) is just what it says: a fantasy book but with a big focus on romance. It can take place in either a high fantasy world or a low fantasy setting.
Because I love me some fantasy, and I love me some romance, and I love it even more when they can be combined!
And as I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to focus on romantasy books I already read and loved, or romantasy books I still want to read, I just split this post up and am doing both (because why not). So without further ado, let’s dive right in!
5 Romantasy Books I Read and Love
I mean, it’s still one of the classic fantasy romances to me! I re-read this one regularly and it still does it for me (especially book 2!)
I’m not even sure how I can begin to describe The Undertaking of Hart and Mercy. It’s a romance. It’s a fantasy with zombie-like creatures. It is super sweet. It is kinda macabre. It’s cozy and whimsical and yet also gory at times. It’s feel-good but also may have you bawling a bit. Not many stories could pull of this many different vibes and yet still make so much sense. Basically, it’s one of a kind. I adored it! Read my full review.
This is just such a fun, addictive and swoony fantasy romance series featuring Cat, a half vampire who hunts vampires, and Bones, the powerful vampire bounty hunter who trains her. Read my post with 10 reasons why I love this series.
Talking about vampires, this is an amazing read for anyone who loves romantic fantasy, brutal magical tournaments, a world of vampires and one fierce human girl, slow-burn romance with amazing chemistry, complicated relationships and edge-of-your seat action! Read my full review.
The hype is real! I can only jump on the hype train and highly recommend this book to anyone who likes slow-burn fantasy romance with deadly schools, grumpy dragons, underdog heroines, amazing friendships and powerful magic. Read my full review.
5 Romantasy Books I Still Want To Read
Even though I am falling a teensy tiny little bit out of love with her Blood and Ash series (I’m sorry, but this series is just going on for too long now) I’m nevertheless still quite eager to try another Jennifer L. Armentrout series, because she does know how to write that delicious slow-burn AND the steam!
“A former slave fighting for justice. A reclusive warrior who no longer believes it exists. And a dark magic that will entangle their fates.” I’m loving the sound of this already and if it’s half as good as The Serpent and the Wings of Night, I just know it’ll be amazing!
A new series featuring court intrigue, a morally grey hero, and an unforgettable enemies-to-lovers romance. Say no more, you’re hitting all my tropes already.
Look, you had me at “standalone adult dark fantasy pirate romance re-telling of The Little Mermaid”
This debut just sounds like it’ll be right up my alley: enemies-to-lovers, light versus dark magic, an exquisite fantasy world set in a Southeast-Asia-inspired world. All that PLUS that gorgeous cover? Yes, my expectations are quite high already!
