Let’s Discuss! My Journey into Fantasy

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a discussion and I’m very happy to be chatting again! I’d love to use my creativity to write more posts and I have some topics in mind, so here I am giving it a go.

Today’s topic is my journey into fantasy, which has been a long process for me. When I started reading, fantasy was just a no-go. For my whole childhood I read anything real, namely Jacqueline Wilson and Cathy Cassidy. I was in the very small percentage of children that didn’t grow up reading Harry Potter. And as I slowly transitioned into YA, the trend continued.

It took me months to get round to fantasy, and years before I eventually ventured into the Harry Potter world. But I’m very happy I finally did!

I’ve read fantasy before, in more recent times. I’ve really enjoyed Six of Crows, A Court of Thorns and Roses and The Hobbit in the past few years to name a few. But nothing really opened my mind as much as Harry Potter did. I just found it incredible, that such a magical world could even exist. It opened my eyes to fantasy and realms that could be written beyond my imagination. From now on, fantasy is exciting and new for me, and I’m very happy that I’m reading more!

  1. Do you have any books that you would recommend people to get into fantasy (except for the brilliant Harry Potter series)? Six of crows might be a good one? I grew up on fantasy and love it, but I can see how people think it’s all magic and doesn’t realize how much possibilities it opens up for. If you create a whole new world, you need to create systems and politics and groups of people, and it’s very exciting when it’s all sprinkled with magic.

    1. Ohh, that’s a tough one as I’m still getting into fantasy myself! I do love Six of Crows, The Selection, The Raven Cycle, Caraval, The Night Circus & Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children xx
