Get to Know the Fantasy Reader Tag! 🎉

Hi all! I was originally planning on releasing this a bit later but I just couldn’t wait 🤣

This is a really fun-looking tag I saw, so I decided to try it out. I first saw this one over @the fictional journal, so go check out that post if you haven’t already 😉

That’s all I really have to say for this introduction, so let’s dive in, I guess!

Rules

  • Make sure you give credit to the original creators of this tag – this tag was originally created by Bree Hill.
  • If you want to, ping back to the post you first saw this tag
  • Have fun!

1. What is your fantasy origin story? (The first fantasy you read)

Honestly, I’m not really sure. I started young, but it was probably a fairytale like Aladdin. 😅

2. If you could be the hero/heroine in a fantasy novel, who would be the author and what’s one trope you’d insist be in the story?

Ooh, that one’s very interesting. I’d like to see a collaboration between Leigh Bardugo and Marie Lu, I think that’d be a perfect fantasy novel! For the trope, I’m not really sure, but maybe an enemies-to-lovers one? Those books always tend to be interesting!

3. What is a fantasy series you’ve read this year, that you want more people to read?

I don’t think I’ve read any fantasy series that aren’t popular this year – I haven’t read a lot of series at all. But earlier this month I started the The Last Hours series, starting with Chain of Gold, and it’s amazing. So though it’s already very popular, I would like for EVEN MORE people to read it so I can discuss it with anyone I come across! 😂

4. What is your favourite fantasy subgenre?

I’m not really sure! I try to read as much as possible and I don’t really think I have a favourite, because the books I love are in different subgenres. 🤣

5. What sub-genre have you not read much from?

Hmm, I’m not sure but possibly futuristic fantasy. I’d like to try more though!

6. Who is one of your auto-buy fantasy authors?

It says one, but I can’t decide! Definitely, Leigh Bardugo and Marie Lu, and possibly Tomi Adeyemi, though she’s only had two books released at the moment so I can’t be too sure yet.

7. How do you typically find fantasy recommendations?

A lot of places 😂

A lot of it is on Goodreads, but I also just search up recommendations too. And of course, blogs! I read quite a lot of other people’s content and a lot of books on my TBR are ones I’ve found from them. 😊

8. What is an upcoming fantasy release that you’re excited for?

There wasn’t really anything until I saw The Bookish Mutant’s new postSisters of the Snake sounds great! 😍

9. What is one misconception about fantasy that you’d like to lay to rest?

That every fantasy book is a fairytale. One of the most annoying things is when non-fantasy readers think that every fantasy book is a fairytale! Yes, there are some, but that doesn’t represent every single book out under the fantasy genre. 🙁

10. If someone had never read a fantasy before and asked you to recommend the first 3 books that come to mind as places to start, what would those recommendations be?

There’s so much to choose from! 😭

There’d definitely be a Leigh Bardugo book in there, either Shadow and Bone or Six of Crows. It depends on their personality, which I think would fit them better. Definitely Marie Lu’s Legend, as well, and for the third one I would just ask others for help because I can’t think of anything 😂

11. Who is the most recent fantasy reading content creator you came across and would like to shout out?

I don’t think I’ve seen anyone who fits there! I do love the creative writing content on Clever and WTF; if you have time, make sure to read this amazing story!


Well, that’s all the questions – I hope you enjoyed! If you want to join in feel free, and leave a link in the comments for me to check out your post 😊

That’s all from me for now – I’ll be doing a book meme soon, though I’m not yet sure which one. Bye for now!
