On the Shelves: Young Adult Fiction> Fantasy

Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness.
Elisa is the chosen one.

But she is also the younger of two princesses, the one who has never done anything remarkable. She can’t see how she ever will.

Now, on her sixteenth birthday, she has become the secret wife of a handsome and worldly king—a king whose country is in turmoil. A king who needs the chosen one, not a failure of a princess.

And he’s not the only one who seeks her. Savage enemies seething with dark magic are hunting her. A daring, determined revolutionary thinks she could be his people’s savior. And he looks at her in a way that no man has ever looked at her before. Soon it is not just her life, but her very heart that is at stake.

Elisa could be everything to those who need her most. If the prophecy is fulfilled. If she finds the power deep within herself. If she doesn’t die young.

Most of the chosen do (Goodreads 2014)

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and it’s “revisit week” where you can go back and pick a past topic and redo it, which is great for all of us who’ve not been here that long.

This week, I’ve picked “Top Ten Books I’m Dying to Read”,except I’m going to be genre specific and pick FANTASY. There are far too many “dystopians” flying around and have been for a while, but thanks to booktube, it looks like FANTASY, one of my favourite genres, is getting more of a popularity boost in the bloggosphere- which I can’t wait for. Why? Because I love wizards, magic, realms, adventures, swordfights, dragons….all that crazy stuff.

So here is my Top Ten Fantasy Books which I am Dying to Read, in no particular order:
