“Five Favorite” is a feature on thewasofshall where I lay out my five favorite “x”. Sometimes they’re relevant to a season or holiday, mostly they’re not. It’s an all-around fun excuse to give my 100% amazingly awesome opinion. To see previous (and future) topics, click here. To participate, scroll all the way down.
To me, fantasy novels incorporate something otherworldly or inhuman, but then don’t explain why such elements exist – they just are. And that’s kind of why I love them: fantastical works are exciting! The author dreams up this crazy premise and I buy it, 100%, no questions asked. Here are five of my favorite!
The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly
Coraline by Neil Gaiman
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
Lumberjanes, vol. 1: Beware the Kitten Holy by Noelle Stevenson
